This battle is only briefly touched upon by Wells in the original version and is almost a footnote in the story all things considered. What makes it extra fun is that this is an event which clearly could be expanded upon and Powell picked this up to focus on the self-sacrifice of those trying to save our world from invasion. Anyone who had read the original already knows the outcome, but the excitement is the telling of the tale itself.
I was honestly surprised at how much I liked not only the concept but how well it was written. I completely commend Powell for picking up this skirmish and realizing that not only was it a tale worth telling but putting together the story behind those involved.
A must have for 'War of the Worlds' fans!
An intriguing story of sea battles and alien invaders, told through the perspective of the Royal Navy Crew, and a character I instantly enjoyed, Mister Stanley. I thought the story was too short, but it was well written and edited. The author did an outstanding job building up this story and it ends with a lot of excitement!!
I would recommend this book, if you're interested in a short fun, science fiction!
