LEVIATHAN was his second attempt at the long form, which he wrote two years later. This was followed up by THE WILD HUNT, DREAMLAND and THE SHADOW WOLVES. His next novel, BLACKSTONE, will be released in 2012. He's currently working on his seventh book.

Jared lives in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and can be reached through his website, www.jaredsandman.com, where he keeps a blog. Follow him on Twitter @JaredSandman.

While a decent enough maritime tale of prehistoric monstrosities, the story is riddled with spelling and grammar issues. As neat as Amazon's new service is, editor's exist for a reason. Furthermore, the science was flawed, the Komodo Dragon is NOT a marine monitor lizard from the Galapagos Islands, they only exist in a few small locations in Indonesia. I believe he may have gotten them confused with the Marine Iguana which does inhabit the Galapagos Islands, located off the coast of South America thousands of miles away from Indonesia.
The book was hard to finish, once I learned the identity of the "Leviathan", there was nothing else to look forward to, not once was there an attempt to explain or a hypothesis to theorize on how such a creature could exist in the modern world and why it was lurking around the Florida Keys. And its "special ability", while pretty cool and hinted at throughout the story, ultimately went wasted. Its like he forgot and at the last second told the reader:"Oh yeah, by the way it can do that."
All in all, NOT a terrible book and worth the price if your a fan of this sort of fiction(which I am). And I would definitely give Jared Sandman another shot with a future book. Good Luck to you Sir!

I really wanted to give this book a 5, because it was a good story.
I have a BA in English, and the poor grammar, missing words, poor sentence structure and terrible punctuation constantly destroyed my focus. Hire an editor. I know you can do so much better.

This book was fun, entertaining and an all around good read! The plot was quick paced, and the book was over before I was ready for it to end.. If a sequel ever should be written (*hint hint*) I'll definitely be buying it! This story was good enough, I'm going to be looking for and likely buying more from this same author in the future.

i did find the book very interesting, but on a downside, the editing was terrible. now, i know i'm not the grammer police, but words were left out, misused and a multitude of other errors. the writer did his job in creating an interesting story, but the editor failed to do it justice. sometimes the errors were so blatant as to disrupt the story. i still gave it 5 stars because the story was good. please just get a better editor next time!

This book knows it's a B Movie and runs with it. The characters are the typical kind you find in a B Movie and the plot runs the same way. However, the author throws in a few surprises to keep the plot fresh and the reader interested. The betrayal of the main character was done in a different way. As were several of the fight scenes. The monster is different as well. No spoilers about it. The characters were well-fleshed out, with a good deal of background...perhaps a bit much here and there. They make hard to believe decisions sometimes, and there were some plot points that were a bit of a stretch, but then this happens in most B horror movies.

A downside was the incomplete ending. It could be the author plans another book, which I will buy. In the meantime, as a reader, I would like a bit more closure for some of the characters.

Overall, a quick, easy, enjoyable read. I will be looking for more books by this author.

Though this book has kind of an abrupt ending, it is still a pretty cool sea monster novel. And yes, the book is about the Biblical monster, "Leviathan".

This was not what I expected, but was not disappointed. An easy, light read. Not for the "scholar" who is looking for deep meaning. Just a fun easy read, nice way to spend some down time.
