Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A research vessel studying the effects of sea life around the Great Pacific Garbage Patch lands in a storm, and the ship and crew find themselves on a mysterious island. They have no memory of how they were stranded, and evidence of sabotage makes the stituation all the stranger. Mark Hawkins leads the survivors on a trek to find answers, but they start vanishing one by one. It soon becomes apparent that the ship and crew were brought to this island for a reason, and the truth—there are crazed scientists on the island, and you know what horrific stuff they do—could destroy their lives forever. Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans, and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands. --Jeff Ayers

Review

“Robinson puts his distinctive mark on Michael Crichton territory with this terrifying present-day riff on The Island of Dr. Moreau. Action and scientific explanation are appropriately proportioned, making this one of the best Jurassic Park successors.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands.” ―Booklist

“The premise is reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau, but the author adds a World War II back story...vivisection, genetic engineering, Black Ops, animal husbandry, and mayhem. This is the stuff that comic books, video games, and successful genre franchises are made of.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“A book full of adventure and suspense that shows ‘science' in a whole new horrific light. This is one creepy tale that will keep you up all night! And it is so well written you will think twice before taking a vacation to any so-called ‘Island Paradise!'” ―Suspense Magazine
