The story continues from the first book, 'Into the Storm'. Captain Matthew Reddy and his crew on the obsolete 4 stacker destroyer USS Walker continue their struggles to help the Lemurians against the Grik invaders, who would wipe them out. There are already many problems and things are about to take a turn for the worse. The book combines history, politics, action and mystery in an excellent addition to the series. I am looking forward to reading the third book 'Maelstrom' and am very pleased to note that a fourth book 'Distant Thunders' is due to be published next year (2010).

This second episode of the Destroyermen saga continues the adventures of a WW 2 ship and its crew that are swept into a time warp in 1942 and emerge into a very different world.

If I have one criticism it is that some of the twist and turns in the story are flagged up a little too early and reduce the dramatic effect but I accept that is a very subjective view.

Excellent gritty writing coupled with colourful and innovative plot make this a difficult book to put down.

In this excellent series, anderson presents us with an excellent new spin on the "shipwreck in time" theme, in which a parallel world has close links to our own, and occasionally things from our own world fall through. Several important things being the two trashed vintage american destroyers fleeing the Japanese at the start of WW2, and the ruddy great big battleship that was chasing them. This is the second book in the series, and probably one of my favourite, as it takes everything we've grown to like from the first novel, then turns it into a great, and very fas paced story. This is one of the very few books that i can truly say that I found impossible to put down, as I read it in a day.
Anderson is one of the rare writers who has the ability to seamlessly blend a brilliant visual style of writing with superb characterisation and story. What's more, his stories all have brilliant little moments of quiet philosophy by certain characters that makes it so much more. What's even better is the fact that his stories genuinely have heart, and you really feel for the characters, the Revenge story arc in this book being a good example, of a few characters who we barely see for 15 pages, yet the scene with many Islands is heart rending. I recommend this series very highly, even if it does get a little drawn out after the initial "trilogy", but this book works superbly in a semi self contained way.

So, here we are back in that alternate Earth - you know the one - the one inhabited by those nice, furry, sociable,sea-going "meerkats". Except it's not a nice furry, fluffy Earth, that one. It's dangerous, very dangerous with its oceans populated by amazingly nasty voracious fish, dinosaur-like creatures walk the forests and all the cute life-forms are threatened by psychotic, murderous, intelligent lizards that just love to eat you alive. And the nasty Japs have allied with them! What chance do clean-living American boys have?
I'm actually doing the book a disservice here because it becomes very easy to forget the "meerkats" aren't human, and the story really does become an exciting and gripping one of struggle as the Americans and the Lemurians form an alliance in the struggle to survive against the Grik threat. Our heroes aren't supermen, either. Lives are lost. And not all the "goodies" are good - the enemy within must be dealt with as well. Yes, the heroes can be a bit too noble (at times) and the speeches are perhaps a bit over the top but this is a good, entertaining and easy read (I couldn't put it down) and the story rolls along at a goodly pace, drawing you in. I'm hooked.

I'll keep this review short. If you read and enjoyed Into the Storm (Destroyermen), the first in the Destroyermen series, then you will enjoy the second volume, Crusade. It continues the story established in volume one, whilst expanding the alternative universe that the book's human protagonists have found themselves stranded in. All the strengths and weaknesses of the first book are on display in this one.

For those who disliked Into The Storm then I doubt you'll pick this one up anyway. For anyone considering tackling the series for the first time, go back and start with Into The Storm. Anderson does provide a potted recap of events from the first book at the beginning of this one, but you'll still miss out on a lot of backstory if you start here.
