Publisher's Summary

Under 30,000 feet of water, the exploration rig Leaguer has discovered an oil field larger than Saudi Arabia. The oil is so sweet and pure, nations would go to war for the rights to it.
As the team starts drilling one exploration well after another in their race to claim the sweet crude, a deep rumbling beneath the ocean floor shakes them all to their core. Something has been living in the oil, and it's about to give birth to the greatest threat humanity has ever seen.
The Black is a techno/horror-thriller that puts the horror and action of movies such as Leviathan and The Thing right into listeners' ears. Ocean exploration will never be the same.

Classic horror at its best. A long slow burn and rollercoaster finish. I can't wait till the other books in this series come out. Loved it!

Stick to writing, you suck at narration.

The book was interesting despite the shallow stereotypical characters and a story that has been done many times before, but sometimes that's exactly what ur in the mood for.

The narration was terrible and constantly jarring from bad audio editing where one sentence runs into the next into the next into-the-next without a moment pause for a period or paragraph break.

And all the characters sound the same until there is another mention of how a character should sound, then he attempts (badly) at an accent or tone of the mentioned sound of the character then immediately abandoned until noted again.

Good predictable book of a monster chasing a group of stranded survivors. BAD narration.
