Blood In the Water (Destroyermen Book 11) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Ever since the USS Walker came from another world war to defy the terrifying Grik and diabolical Dominion, Matt Reddy and his crew have given their all to protect the oppressed Lemurians. But with the Walker in desperate need of repairs just as the Grik’s First General is poised to strike, Reddy is desperate.
With more enemies than ever before arrayed against them, the crew of the Walker needs new allies. That means combing the lethal wilds of Madagascar to find the Lemurians’ fabled ancestors, as well as the enigmatic dwellers east of the Pass of Fire. But what Reddy’s crew unearths may be more than they can handle—discoveries so shattering they could tilt the balance of the war in either direction.
But Reddy’s greatest adversary is from his past: a madman named Kurokawa whose single-minded mission of revenge will shake the Alliance to its core and raise the stakes to the most personal and terrifying levels Reddy has ever faced.

While the year wait was expected, the result wasn't. This felt like the shortest book and I didn't feel it measured up to earlier books in the series. The writing seems to have become formulaic; I knew exactly how the characters would react to the increasingly transparent plot line. Good guys win one, bad guys win one, the main characters are in turn surprised, emotionally tortured, vengeful then finally resolute. I know the sounds like it must have been an action-packed volume, but it's wasn't. Nothing happens in this book. I didn't feel vested in any of the characters or their actions this time around. Hopefully this is similar to the set-up episodes before a season finale or I may give up on the investment in this series.
For me its not an issue if this series stays on for many years, but it would be nice if we could loose some of the weight from "the old world" and maybe go north and see what up...theres probably not any Griks there but probably a lot of other interesting things... Its fine the Grik menace has to be dealt with in a satisfying way and there is the other factions of enemies that demands a proper asskicking which Im sure there is lined up. But I am for one, grown tired of Kurokawa and his minions. Looking forward to the next book as always, but do wish it comes out a bit sooner...a year + between each is quite a wait in a series that connects all books to eachother.
