The book was hard to finish, once I learned the identity of the "Leviathan", there was nothing else to look forward to, not once was there an attempt to explain or a hypothesis to theorize on how such a creature could exist in the modern world and why it was lurking around the Florida Keys. And its "special ability", while pretty cool and hinted at throughout the story, ultimately went wasted. Its like he forgot and at the last second told the reader:"Oh yeah, by the way it can do that."
All in all, NOT a terrible book and worth the price if your a fan of this sort of fiction(which I am). And I would definitely give Jared Sandman another shot with a future book. Good Luck to you Sir!
A downside was the incomplete ending. It could be the author plans another book, which I will buy. In the meantime, as a reader, I would like a bit more closure for some of the characters.
Overall, a quick, easy, enjoyable read. I will be looking for more books by this author.
Spoiler alert ! (Or good heads up)
The author literally reduces the ocean to a farm pond! He goes from taking off from the dock to finding the creature, destroying equipment and back to dock in s matter of a few pages !
The creature itself goes from an omnipotent biblical beast to a caring and almost compassionate animal when one of the main characters finds itself stranded in the ocean. I mean farm pond because of course when the other heroes are chasing the bad guy they happen to see her bobbing in the water and save her.
I really do think the author hasn't been on the ocean because how do 2 separate parties , the good guys and bad guys of course , take off in search of the beast and in a couple of pages or less than a day find the creature in the middle of the ocean and end up interacting because they happen to bump into each other.
The evil billionaire shoots and kills yet the author tries to get reader to feel compassion for him at the end.
I generally do not write reviews but this book irritated me to the point of doing so. Once I start a book I have to finish it but this one almost became the exception. Terrible!
