Character Discussion

This is a place for us to discuss the various characters in my books. I like to keep my books PG-13 (well maybe R with some of the gore), so if you could keep that the same here I would greatly appreciate it.

  1. Hello Taylor and other fans.
    I just started “Devil’s Due” tonight.
    This series makes me think about my Dad. He was in the Navy on a ship in the Philippines during World War 2 and he was the Cook! ha.
    Except my Dad wasn’t anything like Earl Lannier.
    I am really loving the series, no complaints about anything. I haven’t even found a single typo mistake. I read every word when I am reading.
    There is one problem I have when getting towards the end of the book, I say to myself, Oh Crap! I am running out of pages!
    I do not agree with a couple other commenters about making the books into a TV series, Television would ruin it and make all kinds of stupid changes to suit themselves.

  2. Hi. I am reading Firestorm right now. The Destroyermen series is amazing. So immersive. I feel sad when characters die and rule for my favorites e.g. Silva LOL. Have you though of implementing this in a miniseries? Animated? Thank you for these jewel. Best regards.

      I think this was raised on the old site over how to create a television version and who we would like in the roles.

      And I strongly agree that the series would we wonderful if we could bring Taylor’s vision into the visual medium.

      Only effective way would I suppose be via animation as for live action cost of effects would be far to high otherwise, But unless there is a super fan with deep pockets we may never see it which would be a shame

  3. Hello! Just wanted to say, absolutely loving the destroyermen series so far. Currently finishing Maelstorm and have the rest of the books on hold. As a history nut myself, I find this series amazing, and so does my history teacher lol. So, uh, hi I guess! Hope threw rest of the series is as amazing as these first few books have been!

  4. The end of Winds of Wrath left a number of things vague and open to interpretation, such as the future of a relationship between Abel Cook and Empress Rebecca. Do you think that there will be a relationship between them after the book ends?

    I can see why one hasn’t started yet (Despite Abel’s attraction to her). Both of them are quite busy and they haven’t had a lot of time together since they were marooned. And the little time they’ve had togher hasn’t really presented the opportunity to be alone for any significant amount of time. Get them isolated from other people for a bit.. And well something is probably going to happen.

    The other reason that neither of them started anything is that assuming the social conventions in New Britain are like I’d imagine, Abel would have to initiate any relationship or at least first date himself. And I think that asking a princess and later a queen on a date (even if you know them fairly well) would probably make even the most confident of us intimidated. However it seems like Abel is perhaps getting ready to make some moves based on him staring to the west at the end of Winds of Wrath. What we’ve seen of Rebecca’s thoughts on the matter indicate that she feels a bit abandoned by him and probably wants him as much as he wants her. Good for both of them is that Silvia will be pusing Abel forwards, maybe that’s just what he needs…

  5. It’s back! Fantastic!

    I can only hope that Taylor has an archive of the old site with all the wonderful discussions.
