The idea of what lies at the bottom of the sea has fascinated and terrified people for decades, with good reason. We have yet to discover the deepest and darkest ocean depths, despite our technological advancements. Roberts couldn't have picked a better premise for his first novel; we fear what we don't yet know the most.
Laura Masterson is the main character who is a young woman with problems who is returning home to Sealand, California after a two-year absence. She is estranged from her father who is a scientist and retired schoolteacher. Laura had a terrible experience before she left Sealand which caused her life to take a bad turn into drugs and living a hand to mouth existence. After she returns to Sealand, before she ever goes home to see her father, she finds herself foraging in a medical waste dumpster and meets Kathy, a 12-year-old runaway, whom she befriends. Their adventures dealing with Kathy’s pimp, local law enforcement, the new alien life that has invaded Sealand and the Serial Killer make for a “page turner” of a novel.
The technical background created for the alien life has credibility and the story crafted around this part of the plot showcases the author’s talent to write in this genre.
The characters in the book have depth and are well developed. The author manages to add a good deal of suspense to the story using unexpected outcomes which help make this a good read.
The story begins with an undersea earthquake beneath the city of Sealand, California. Carl, who worked on the sewer systems is assessing the damage under the city; only to become the victim of an evil, grossly shaped sea-monster. Roberts writes the horrid, graphic violence with such detail and imagination; I felt I was a part of the scene. The scenes of rape, violence, and terror are not for the squeamish! I have spent many nights with my lights on all night after reading Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Dean Koontz. I have added Chris Roberts to my list of horror writers who cause me to believe my own life is in danger of being ripped and shredded into bloody stretches of pandemonium.
The main character, Laura, adds a bit of innocent friendliness to the alien horror and violent acts of mayhem that will leave you gasping for air. Laura is struck by one tragedy after another. She is only 19 years old and faces a myriad of ugliness and evil throughout the story. If you enjoy thrillers that keep you running for the mirror to remind yourself of the reality outside of this book; Chris Roberts’ book will spellbind you!
