It’s action and mystery in a location never before written about by Kris P. Kreme. The setting is as exotic and foreign as any ever told about, the very bottom of the ocean, a place where strange jelly like creatures and eels swim among boulder mazes and slopes leading to chasms filled with strange forests of underwater life. There is of course a modern research facility called the Poseidon and that is where the mystery begins.
Setting a pace right off with the four main characters interacting as three are about to embark on their maiden exploration of the area surrounding the facility, the author also introduces us to the purpose for their mission. They are seeking living creatures who manage at depths and pressure unheard of by humankind. To battle the pressure themselves, Stephen, lead scientist, has developed special wetsuits with exoskeletal frames. These wetsuits should allow unprecedented movement and serve as a plot device to show not only how easily explorable the landscape has become, but also demonstrate that one of these four individuals is quite definitely a woman.
The exploration scenes are where the action begins, the mystery of what will happen next and when things will inevitably turn bad for the youngest member of their group, Debra Overman. With cliffhanger plot points, and literal cliffhanging segments, this is a story that is bubbling up from the abyss in more ways than one. It’s a ride readers will enjoy being taken on.
