If you have a free afternoon and want to read something both easy and thrilling, this should be the novel you purchase. It was a lot of fun and didn't lose my attention for a second. This author has a way of creating a world that you can visualize. The only reason I even give this a four star instead of five is due to the occasional grammar issues. That said, don't let this keep you away! They will not take away from the experience for a second. In fact, I look forward to reading some more of the books by this author. New fan here!
Now, let me stray a bit before returning to the novel itself. In quite a few aspects this novel reminded me of Tears of Abandon. The concept of the unknown and the concept of the good and evil were similar. What do I mean by all that? Let me start with good and evil. If we assume that our heroes are good and aliens are evil, in the end of the book the evil is not won over, it actually just goes back to slumber to await for its next sacrifice. Wasn’t it the same in Tears of Abandon? If we think of Whisper as evil, that it never vanished and it still has new people coming into its web. I actually enjoy this concept in Phipps’s books, because he shows the reality and not just some rose-colored happy endings. Think for yourselves, does the evil always disappear?
As all the books I’ve read by Oliver Phipps this one is high in suspense and on making you feel on edge. Truthfully speaking that might have also been the room I was reading it in that made everything too real. But I would want to believe it’s Phipps’s writing style. I do not know how he does it, but my imagination just goes wild whenever I read his books. I nearly ha a heart attack when it showed a specific creature in the cylinder. Sorry, don’t want to spoil you one of the best moments. Let me spoil you on thing. An alien research lab 4 miles under water? For real, how much of imagination a person should have to actually imagine that? But it’s not just your normal research lab; add into that blunder some super crazy experiments and an arena for battle to death. You do get me now right? This book is just too amazing, and after reading it my theory of all myths being reality just got another argument and I believe it even more.
But do not believe my words only; grab your copy now to find the mysteries of underwater with our 3 submariners. Are you up for another adventure? I hope you are! Happy reading!
I am a fan of science fiction, and this book does not disappoint, by providing a unique and imaginative setting and back story. The battle scenes alone had me sitting on the edge of my seat, and had my adrenaline pumping. The author has a talent for describing battle scenes, so that you can really "see" the fight as it unfolds. The characters themselves were engaging, with a nice amount of humor to break the suspenseful periods in the story (the love triangle parts were especially funny). I don't want to give any spoilers, but I personally also found the ending to be very satisfying.
I recommend this book for anyone who wants to read a good, quick, science fiction book, with a good amount of suspense, some romance and a lot of imagination!
