This book is set in 2041 and postulates a new type of octopus has evolved, perhaps from nuclear explosions in Bikini or perhaps from pollutants poured into the sea by the Japanese and others. At first there is fear because the new Octopi are quite large and have an acid in their bodies that is dangerous to man. As the crew of first the Reverence and then the Cousteau begin to learn about these giant octopi and deal with them many new ideas arise and much respect is learned both by the creatures and the crew of the Cousteau. In the process the crew encounter pirates and a preacher who wants to kill off scientists, as well as illegal fishermen of the Octopi that are killing them and selling their meat.
This is an exciting story that keeps you moving right along with all that is happening from time to time. The characters are not complex though they are developed. The story line keeps working right to the end. This was a fun read that I finished quite quickly. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 18 and only put that restriction on as a result of a moment of somewhat graphic sex that fits right into the flow of the story and is necessary. Five stars is easy for this one.
--Erica Miles, author of Dazzled by Darkness
This story was intense. It’s obvious the author knows about diving. The underwater scenes were scary for me. I felt like I was right there.
Kraken’s Keep is a very interesting and informative sci fi story. Well done with a depth to each character that speaks of seasoned character development. Many unforgettable moments in this book will stay with me for a long time.
I give it a full five stars and recommend it to readers of sci fi, especially underwater/ocean adventure!
