(See all of my Book Reviews) – “Pass of Fire” eBook was published in 2019 and was written by Taylor Anderson (http://taylorandersonauthor.com). This is the 14th book in his “Destroyer Men” series. See my interview with Taylor Anderson.
I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. The story continues the saga of the Destroyer Men who have been transported to an alternate Earth from our WWII era of history.
Several characters are featured in this volume of the series. The people from our Earth continue their war with the Grik, the Holy Dominion, and the League of Tripoli. The Grand Human and Lemurian Alliance faces what seems to the the final battle with the Grik. They also confront the Holy Dominion at one of their strongholds. As the Human/Lemurian forces appear to be succeeding against the Grik and Holy Dominion empires, the League of Tripoli lurks in the shadows threatening the future.
I enjoyed the 16.5+ hours I spent reading this 477-page alternate history thriller. I have read three of the fourteen novels in this series and I have enjoyed every one. While you can read this novel stand alone, I would recommend reading these books in order. This edition of the series spreads the story across more characters than I recall in the prior two novels. The story is approaching a conclusion of one of the plot threads, but the series is far from over. I look forward to future novels in this series. I give this novel a 5 out of 5.
