The ocean is home to many myths,

But some are deadly. . .

Seven years ago the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a mockumentary bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a tragedy.

Now a new crew has been assembled. But this time they're not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life's work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.

Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the waves.

But the secrets of the deep come with a price.

I was interested in this book because of the horror elements involving mermaids. It didn't really deliver on that. Every time something exciting happened it immediately went to a cut scene from someone else's perspective that wasn't involved in that scene. It also felt like there was a lot of reashing of info or too much detail that didn't help the story move forward. There was too much inner monologue and it made the story drag. Considering how much time we spent in the character's head's it made me like most of them less. I honestly only liked Tory, Olivia, and, Theo. They had the most relatable stories and the best characterizations. I felt like the author was more focused on the science and less on the telling of the story. The ending felt rushed and abrupt considering how much time the book spent out in the middle of the ocean not doing anything.

A suspenseful tale of underwater terror that does a good job of reminding us why we're afraid of the deep sea. I liked this book, but I do wish we had kept focus on the mermaids and their terror. The ending really let me down. Still, if you like reading about creatures from the deep, it is a great listen. The narrator did a great job.

Excellent story and a gripping end. Perhaps there was a bit too much background information of the characters, but once the story gets going you'll be completely hooked. It's very refreshing to use mermaids and the deep sea for the story, it's truly worth listening. I recommend listening to this title at 1.5 speeds if you find the narrator reading a bit slow.

This is a great book. It starts slow, but it has you wish the narrator to read faster to get to the next part. This is movie ready.

Good story that keeps moving. Mermaids make it a slightly different approach to Zombies and Vampires and makes for an interesting new approach to this genre. Fresh direction and worth a listen.
