Publisher's Summary

Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy SEAL turned NCIS special agent, is sent to Aquarius, the world’s only sub-oceanic research facility, located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller’s fingers and tastes like blood.
Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing. No ships. No polluters.
No oxygen.
Instead, he finds a cloudless sky full of red particles dropping like snow and coating the ocean with a thick film that stretches to the horizon. When a dead blue whale collides with Aquarius, Miller begins a harrowing race to escape the affected area.
Cut off from the rest of the world and surrounded by death, Miller makes his way to Miami, where he discovers just one survivor and the awful truth: The strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life-giving oxygen was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they’re just getting started.
Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. Millions are dead. And if Miller can’t track down and stop those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world is next.

Wonderful Premise

I must say I loved the first 3 hours of this novel. I thought the threat of an oxygenless world was fresh and the whole earlier part of the story was tense, fast-paced and wickedly good.

I didn't, however, feel that the later half of the story held up so well. I really couldn't suspend my disbelief when it came to the 'nazi' ideology and how wide it had spread, or the fact that the POTUS decides to depend on four people to save the world.

From that point on, I still found it an enjoyable thriller, but I can't say I was genuinely engaged in the story anymore.

A heading is required

Excellent narration!

Very poor story due to constant attempts to force me to agree with what is evil and what is good..(F-that, give me the story and I alone shall decide)

Many of the 'evil' characters did not feel fully committed to their paths... severely weakened the story considering how long-term their plan was! (cried? seriously? wth...blah!). Research all of the potential justifications these bad guys may have so you can also sell the other side; that is what draws people in because that reveals who the reader is in the context of the story. Then let the strongest previal (as the author sees fit of course), sit back and collect movie royalties forever.

I am actually a little upset, disappointed that it is so close to a truly great story! A cliffhanger to a second story - a last minute surprise excape for example - might have saved the overall situation of the story.

Just a nobody reader - so keep on truckin full speed ahead!
