Nevertheless, I found that once I had begun, I just couldn't put it down. I thought I had it figured out (and in a way I did), but nothing could have prepared me for the ending. After reading the epilogue, I just sat in stunned silence--that is, after I yelled, "Oh man!" The whole thing was masterfully done, and I'm eager to read the next book by Alexander Galant. (I already read the "sneak peek" at the end of "Depth of Deception." It sounds like another winner.)
For the Christian reader, I must point out that this is not a Christian book and does contain profanity. In the first few chapters, there wasn't any. Then, the author sprinkled a few in here and there. But by the middle of the book, it was constant in every chapter. Being such an avid reader, I've trained myself to skim across curse words without paying them much heed, but if you don't have that ability, you may find the profanity distracting. I, personally, felt it was overused and actually distracted the reader from the plot and characters. That being said, there's a great story if you're willing to overlook the profanity. Normally, I wouldn't even recommend a book with that much profanity, but the story is just awesome, so I do recommend it with the cautionary note about the use (and overuse) or profanity.
If you like a book that's "off the beaten track" and unique, then this is the one for you. An author to watch.
The author has nicely interspersed fact with fiction providing some details of the actual sinking of the Titanic, treating them as fiction in his story. He also explains at the beginning that parts of the story taking place in the US would include the American spelling of words while parts taking place in the U.K. would include the English spelling of words. Color vs. colour was one example he gave. I wouldrecommend this book to people who enjoy time-travel as well as mystery and suspense stories. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
Glad I got the book, read the story and ti would make a great movie in my opinion.
