the writing is poor as hell and just follows the most stupid of "logic" used only to push the story along. mermaids exist, and are deep sea monsters that are just so unstoppable. they can punch through the hull of a minisubmersible capable of diving down further then any other. they arm their main security guys with GRENADE LAUNCHERS on a god damn boat over marianis trench. the writing is just so god damn bad.
narrator is good, not great at accents, but gives most of them good distinct voices. just pass this crap on by.
Further more, no internal consistency. sometimes the nuuuurrrmaids can punch through heavy armor plating, other times they cant. they are constantly described as having thin frail fragile bones, but then they are punching through titanium composite plating.
80 percent of the book is self rightous poorly done "HUMANS ARE THE REAL MONSTER!!!!!" preaching that just gets old fast.
This book had me hooked quickly. The author did an excellent job introducing the characters. Scary plot. I wish there was a little less preaching on environmental stuff. The repetitive conversations about it made me hit the skip button a few times. I'm fine with learning about the horrible stuff mankind does to the earth but when the main character has the exact same conversation about saving whales with 4 different people (when it isn't necessary to the plot)...about an hour of this could have been reduced.
This story kept me hooked, intrigued and in suspense. In my opinion there was none of the contrived character development or fudged fillers. What I did find was interesting backstories to people and plot so wonderfully intertwined into a well written story.
