Publisher's Summary

A relentless enemy.... An old wolf's last hunt.... The future of two species hanging in the balance.

The Darshik war machine is flagging, but the war is far from over. Even as an exhausted Federation military tenses up for a counterattack after repelling the last Darshik invasion, reports are coming in of a new, more powerful class of ship that's striking deep into Terran space.

Captain Jackson Wolfe has been given the fleet's newest, most advanced destroyer and tasked with eliminating this new threat before it can claim any more human lives. What he finds, however, is immeasurably more dangerous than just some new class of starship...it's a horror that could lead to the destruction of both their species if it isn't stopped.

Destroyer is the third book in the Expansion Wars Trilogy and part of the number one best-selling Black Fleet Saga.

    "Have to read it but probably the worst book of the 6"

    There is no real jeopardy in this book. It’s not the best series really but I like the characters. Nothing really happens in this one and after what has gone before there is no real jeopardy. Characters are introduced but do nothing and old characters don’t do much.

    Seems like there will be more but they’re going to need to be better.

    "Back On Form"

    Joshua Dalzelle has left his best until last in this Expansion Wars trilogy with Destroyer. This reverses the situation in his Black Fleet trilogy of books which saw an interesting but rather anti-climatic finale in my opinion. I am happy to report that Destroyer sees a return to some lost form by Dalzelle and a reminder of what I liked so much about his first book in the Black Fleet trilogy. Things start off a bit slow it must be said but by chapter 12 or so things heat up and keep on going until a satisfying end.

    Once the action gets going Dalzelle really writes the tense and rapid fire bridge scenes well pulling the reader right into the action and putting you on the bridge of the TFS Nemesis as Jackson Wolf struggles to combat his deadliest foe yet. Dalzelle seems to exhibit a detailed knowledge of the way the bridge crew and ship is commanded and leads me to wonder if he has had some personal experience in the navy. The tension is palpable as orders are barkedd out, responses given and the fight goes on.

    Each scene is delivered with competence by the superb Mark Boyett who is able to render a multitude of convincing voices and accents that really bring this book to life.

    One plot element I felt the author hadn't quite got right was the fact that it was obvious that the Eastern Star Alliance was involved with the Darshek threat. None of their worlds had been attacked despite their closer proximity to the Darshek and their entire attitude towards the rest of the Federation was adversarial so why none of the key protagonists in this story made the connection sooner was odd to me. It also strikes me as I write this that the ESA appear to be analogous to present day Russia and China and the general setting of these books suggests a sort of Cold War that also reminds me of years past or perhaps a renewed one in our near future.

    All told, Destroyer is a good read and the best of this series.

    "A great finale with a few unexpected heartbreakers."

    I was so excited when my pre-order became available for download. Having gulped both preceding books quickly I dove in and this installment didn’t disappoint. I knew there couldn’t be a good story without a few tragedies and it was heartbreaking to read through those moments. But all in all there is a sense of a satisfying journey. I’m glad the author left the possibility of further trilogies or however else he might choose to group his works. It certainly felt that it was left open ended. I’ll be waiting and in the meantime listening again and again.

    "A good continuation, but..."

    I enjoyed the book, except for the author's direction of constant "blundering" by the captain, and killing off other characters.

    In my opinion, I much prefer a stronger lead, with less mistakes.

    "My Favorite Series"

    While I enjoy several different series, trilogies, space operas, or whatever you want to call them, the Expansion Wars and it's preceding trilogy are my favorite. One of my all time favorite characters as well as several ancillary actors in these books makes it so fun. I don't like books with typical 10 feet tall and bullet proof characters, see John Clark from the Clancy books. Dalzelle gives us people we can root for. They make mistakes, they do good, and sometimes they even get killed. Boyett is my favorite narrator as well. He just does a nice job, and doesn't overplay his role. Sad this one is over, but re-reads are sure to come.

    Story
    "good, but obvious problems "

    The only thing I do not like about this story is that the crew nor the Marines wear any kind of space suit that is sealed while in battle. There is a scene where Marines are raiding a ship in space and then get worried about the ship being depressurised. Why would Marines attack a ship in space not wearing a pressure suit when the ships captain could just turn the air off wherever they are, it doesn't make sense.
