Publisher's Summary

The M/S Atlantica, one of the most advanced cruise ships in the world, is lost.
Land has disappeared. Fuel, food, and hope begin to dwindle.
After months recuperating in hospital, US Marine Jack Cohen hoped a Caribbean cruise would help him recover from the horrific injuries he sustained fighting in the Middle East. Instead, when the ship is attacked, he is once again thrust into battle to protect Atlantica against the ruthless enemy hunting her, and the insidious threat already aboard. On these mysterious and uncharted seas, where even the compass shows the sun rising to the west, Atlantica's salvation may lie with a Navy warship which is as lost as they are. Together, they must pool their resources and use every means available to defend themselves while discovering what has happened to them.
And the rest of the world.
Unfathomed is a military science fiction thriller which will appeal to anyone who enjoyed Lost, BSG or The Last Ship.
From the international best-selling author of Endeavour and Erebus.

First, I have listened to the author's book "Endeavour" and thoroughly enjoyed it. That one was also narrated by the talented Michael Kramer. This book is wildly different and show's Kern's ability to write in a different genre altogether,...although there is a bit of sci-fi flare here, it is light. The premise--meeting of a cruise ship and a destroyer, relying on each other to survive--is awesome. Can you imagine the possibilities? The conflict between crews? The completely different missions and priorities? The stage is rife with genuine conflict opportunities and Kern does not disappoint.

Although I didn't really consider this taking a chance on a book, since I already liked one other of Kern's, it was still a new genre for him. But thoroughly enjoyed it. Was hard to pull the ear buds out.

Not Your Normal Run Of The Mill High Seas Adventure

Man, this is teasingly tight and adventurous piece of speculative sf... It does have a tiny bit of a lost feel, especially in the latter half, but so wonderfully different at the same time... The look at what ppl will do given extreme circumstances and happenings is done realistically and understandingly... Great pace and action w/ some nice martial aspects and attention to detail w/ jargon... Superior characters, hard to pick a fave, but pushed I'd have to say Jack, and in his case the author delivers one of the most honest portrayals of a person/vet w/ a disability I've read in a while... As good as the book is overall, it's simply superb in the last half, and the last third keeps throwing twists at you until literally the last page... Wow, the next book should be amazing... Narration is superb of course... If you can't like Michael Kramer you might as well give up audio books;). My only complaint is that I now have to wait an indeterminate time to slake my curiosity as to what comes next;).
