The fate of the world is in the hands of the survivors of the two U.S. Destroyers that passed through the storm and into an alternate earth. Once again the storm clouds are gathering. The Grik horde is preparing to move on the Lemurian fortified base at Baalkapan. Backed by the wounded Japanese cruiser Amagi, the Grik have amassed a huge army to invade and overwhelm the defenders. Baalkapan isn't defenseless. The USS Walker and USS Mahon await the Fil-pan islands to try to convince additional Lemurians to join the battle. Along the voyage the Mahon finds some unexpected allies. Another US Navy vessel had made it to this world. Although the submarine isn't functional many of its' weapons are useable.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The final thrilling chapter in the "gripping and riveting"(S.M. Stirling, bestselling author of The Scourge of God) Destroyermen Trilogy.

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces—even as they look for allies to join their struggle.

Meanwhile, the Japanese juggernaut Amagi, also trapped in this strange world, is under Grik control—with her fanatical commander approaching madness. And soon they will have amassed a force that no amount of firepower and technology will be able to stop.

As the raging conflict approaches, Reddy, his crew, his allies, and his loved ones face annihilation. But if there is one thing they have learned about their new world, it is that hope—and help—may be just over the horizon.
