Science Fiction • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

American and Japanese soldiers find themselves continuing WWII on a "twisted, alien Earth," with cat and insect people joining the fray. The third in a series, MAELSTROM starts in the midst of the war. William Dufris puts life—and voices that have a ring of familiarity—into the stock characters, making them believable as soldiers in a bizarre situation. His performance adds to a sense of wonder in the first half of the novel as the alien world is established and explored. The freshness of the first half evaporates as the fighting begins. At this point, the book becomes just another war yarn. The action can get bloody, so expect some graphic descriptions. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
