Waiting On Wednesday: Iron Gray Sea by Taylor Anderson

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Iron Gray Sea by Taylor Anderson 

War has engulfed the other earth. With every hard-won victory and painful defeat, Matt Reddy and the Allies encounter more friends — and more diabolical enemies. Even in the arms of the woman he loves, there is little peace for Reddy. The vast sea and scope of the conflict has trapped him too far away to help on either front, but that doesn’t mean he and USS Walker can rest — and man and four-stacker must risk everything against a bigger ship.

Elsewhere, the long-awaited invasion of Grik “Indiaa” has begun, and the Human-Lemurian Alliance is pushing back against the twisted might of the Dominion. The diplomatic waters seethe with treachery and a final, terrible plot explodes in the Empire of New Britain Isles. (July 3, 2012)

This is a series that I have yet to give a read, but I'm always up for a good alternate history tale, especially one that involves alternate realities. The series begins with a WWII destroyer fleeing Japanese battleships, heading into a storm front, and coming out the other side to find a world full of monstrous fish, grazing dinosaurs, and not just one, but two species who overtook humanity in the evolutionary race. Definitely looking forward to diving into the series . . . no pun intended. :)

  1. I remember getting the first book to this series and thinking this looks good, I'll have to give it a try... Now I have at least four of the books on my shelf and I still haven't read any of them. There are times when I should stop reviewing just so I can get back to reading for pleasure and get to all these books that have been piling up.

  3. I know the feeling all to well - I could dig into my old shelves and never get caught up.
