Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the U.S.S. Walker a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover and emerges somewhere else. Familiar landmarks appear, but the water teems with monstrous, vicious fish. And there appear to be dinosaurs grazing on the plains of Bali. Gradually Matt and his crew must accept the fact that they are in an alternate world and they are not alone. Humans have not evolved, but two other species have. And they are at war. With its steam power and weaponry, the Walker's very existence could alter the balance of power. And for Matt and his crew, who have the means to turn a primitive war into a genocidal Armageddon, one thing becomes clear: They must decide whose side they're on. Because whoever they choose to side with is the winner.… (mer)

Man, if you're going to tease me with dinosaurs and an alternate reality, you've got to get there a heck of lot faster. ( )

I would just simply say give the book a chance. I think it actually has a very unique story that I ( )

Light Sci-fi with the expected characters. Writing isn't the best but still enjoyable. I'd give it a half star if I could. ( )

It's a good fun quick read. It seemed to stumble in a few places, the pacing was a little off, and I found myself skimming through a few times. For the most part the characters have more dimensions than I anticipated - except for the few female characters. They fell a little flat. But the working comraderie of the fighting crew was played out well.

That was the books strength. It's weakness was in a plot that never seemed to rise above sci fi cliches held together with chicken wire and chewing gum. (spoilers) battleships and freak storms that transport them into a parallel universe. Friendly cat-monkey (or monkey cat?) people and evil Lizard people. The kick ass Americans train the otherwise peaceful monkey people into fierce warriors to stand against the pure evilnof the Lizard people. There are, of course, rousing speeches given by the US captain that propelled them into unheard of feats of monkey-cat bravery.

That's not an all bad thing. If you want a delicious sandwich, you open up your fridge and squish everything that makes your mouth water between 2 pieces of bread. But the book never really rises above. ... and I'm being told that's not really the best way to make a sandwich - i was just guessing to be honest.

If I can find the next one used, i'll pick it up as a "vacation book". It was enjoyable enough for that. And if you're looking for some light naval/sci fi reading, this is the way to go.

But if you really want a taste of what that military snap crossed with sci fi can do, I would humbly recommend the Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson. Starting with 'Gardens of the Moon'. It's like 'Into the Storm' only better. Having finished this book I have the nearly overwhelmed urge to reread that series. ( )

For my darling daughter, Rebecca Ruth. Everything I do is for her, after all. In return, I get her humor, wit, companionship, inspiration, and unqualified adoration. Not a bad trade.
