Book Description

The Kindle Book Review for "Indigo Empyrean"
4.5 stars For Indigo Empyrean May 1, 2012

WHERE SUNLIGHT VANISHES…eleven-thousand-feet below the ocean’s surface, in a place no man could possibly imagine, ancient secrets are about to be revealed...

The first sign will be a luminous hand…

Off the deserted Oregon beach known as Deadman’s Bluff fourteen year old Ashton will see that hand.

The second sign will be an impossible whisper.

Lying awake in his bed, Ashton will hear that whisper, and he will try to hide from it…

The third sign will be the calling…and Ashton will know that he's been chosen.

Ashton is a loner, a thinker, by outward appearances no different from any other young teen. But Ashton is different. He has an uncanny telepathic ability. That's why they will appropriate for him a tiny submersible.

Forced to become a runaway from his strict grandmother, Ashton will embark on a secret journey to the deep sea, where he will find that the seafloor is not the bottom… there is a way to go deeper yet… through ancient tunnels, vast undersea planes and subterranean eddies. Following the telepathic instructions in his mind, he will move into a world as alien as another planet and he will discover the first intelligent species of Earth. But all is not well in this subterranean world. And Ashton’s will have to make a tough choice upon his return to the surface: either to keep his voyage to the sub-sea world a secret...or try to right a terrible wrong.

Now the adventure really begins...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, Not terrible March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I received this book in a daily listing of Kindle freebies I receive in email. The description looked interesting, so I had it delivered to my Kindle. Sure couldn't complain about the price!

First, the good part. Marsh can tell a story. He keeps things moving along and introduces interesting plot devices to make the story go. The basic tale is about a young teen who finds he can communicate telpathically with an intelligent colony of previously unknown sea creatures. Young Ashton Miller and his little sister Autumn are likable characters.

After Ashton establishes a telepathic link with one of the sea creatures, Ko, Ko builds Ashton and his sister a sailboat dinghy so that they can come to sea to visit. When Ko decides to take them down to visit their world beneath the waves, she encourages him to procure a deep sea submersible.

Well, things get a little far-fetched at this point, as it turns out that a strange recluse living in the area just happens to have one. Eventually they persuade him to give it to them and off they go to visit Ko and her family.

While visiting they discover the Iquana, as the creatures are called, are becoming sick. They realize it's because of all the pollutants humans are dumping. They return to the world intent on rescuing the Iquana. Somehow these young teens are able to put together a multi-million dollar rescue operation while being pursued by evil treasure hunters who would put the iquana in captivity.

During the second half of the book Marsh takes some pot shots at religious fundamentalism by making them the bad guys. That in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing, but he does a classic straw-man argument by defining the religious nuts in his own terms and then sets out to show how evil they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun fantasy read for young adults with a G rating January 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
David Marsh captures the excitement of a modern fantasy adventure with the spirit of an old world sea-faring tale in his new book, "Indigo Empyrean". If you're someone who leaves trash on the beach and throws things into the ocean, you might not like this book; if you believe there's nothing of significance left to discover on our planet you might not like this book; the rest of you will likely, like me, love this book!
Brother and sister, Ashton (age 14) and Autumn (age 12), live on the coast of Oregon, near a very dangerous beach. Their grandmother has forbidden them to go to that beach. Of course, that's an open invitation to go anyway in their minds. So, as you might expect, Ashton and Autumn are drowning as the story begins. There's no question they're going to die. The've been pushed out to sea in the fierce current, and they're spiraling down in a torrent of a whirlpool. Yet hundreds of feet beneath the ocean's surface a large bioluminescent life-form has telepathically heard Ashton's prayer. In not much more than an eye-blink the siblings are back on the beach. Rescued or pushed there by a freak wave? Ashton soon realizes it was a rescue after he hears whispers and later vibrant telepathic messages from an entity named Ko. She says she's never spoken to a human before. She says she never thought she'd be able to. She says she's a friend, and she lives in a place never before seen by a human but Ashton could visit in a submersible.
How Ashton acquires that submersible, how he learns to pilot it, and stay away from hunters who believe there's a remarkable catch to be found in those waters off the coast of Oregon, and how he travels to the greatest depths of the ocean, and then below the ocean sea-floor, is the stuff great adventures are made of, in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars For Indigo Empyrean May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I took a few hours between finishing this book and writing the review to gather my thoughts. Not getting them together in the way I wanted to, I read some other reviews posted for this book. There's some interesting opinions here!

First, I want to say that this is the first book I have read in ages that made me tear up. I don't easily do that in stories or movies, so I would say that indicates some strength in writing on Mr. Marsh's part.

Next, I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that said the story is a bit preachy, and heavy-handed on the religion of the characters within. I am not going to argue with that, but given the times and the political climate of the USA these days, and the revolutionary waves of thinking going through the world (in different directions, I might add), I can't be too hard on this book. I think 20, 50, 100 years from now, parts of this book will resemble a snapshot of how things were at the turn of the century. I also think that the plight of Ko and what certain groups of people did to help her helped transcend some of that heavy-handedness, and illustrated to young readers that no matter what your beliefs are, if you can find the good in people, you can work together for a common good. It illustrates that the people who bury their beliefs in fear and angst and the desire for control that go astray and meet bad ends. As a parent, I can't really argue with that sentiment, even if I don't agree with some of the opinions protrayed in the story.

Considering those opinions portrayed, I'd probably hand this book to my daughter once she hits 10-12, and has an understanding that just because I hand a book to her, it doesn't mean I endorse the beliefs stated throughout.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did not hold my interest
The book has some interesting ideas but I gave up on it midway because I could not stand the juvenile writing style any more. May be more suitable for children than adults.

D.F Marsh lives in Kauai, Hi, where he owns and operates an independent video production company. His first non-fiction book is "Confessions of a Car Sales Manager - The Little car-buying Guidebook," now available.
