The only things I didn't like were the main character's polygamous relationship (not really anything wrong with the book; just a personal dislike of mine) and the idea that the monster has been involved with many mass extinctions throughout Earth's history. Without giving too much away, its motivation makes sense for the Precambrian oxygenation event and the current mass extinction, but makes a lot less sense when applied to the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction and many others.
Overall, I would recommend this book to fans of Lovecraft-influenced works, disaster stories and monster stories in general. Oddly specific though this may be, I'd also recommend it to fans of the anime Blue Gender, as there are definite thematic similarities.
My only issue is the middle third per se. It almost seems like three books in one. I enjoyed them, but it was odd for about 50 pages where new characters come in then disappear until the epilogue.
That being said I still very much enjoyed a very interesting take of a post apocalyptic world transformed.
The Bad: The pacing is badly off, no one area of the story is truly fleshed out and it becomes disjointed and shallow.
The Ugly: Please Mr. Robinson repeat after me "Religion is not character development." This is the same problem I had with the Antarktos book 1, telling the reader that a person is religious does absolutely nothing to describe their character, or advance the plot in any significant way. I have the Chess Team and Nemesis books I know you can do better than this trite drivel.
