Publisher's Summary

John Birmingham is the master of alternate history adventure - and now he's mastered a new genre with the volcanically fast-paced and wildly inventive Dave Hooper urban fantasy series. The series is anchored by a thrilling high concept: An oil rig opens a deep ocean rift that unleashes terrifying monsters into the world.
But perhaps its coolest asset is its hero, Dave Hooper: a tough, bleakly funny, down-on-his luck oil rig worker with an unlikely destiny as a monster slayer and world savior. With a memorable concept and an unforgettable new hero, the Dave Hooper series will satisfy Birmingham's large fanbase and convert a new legion of devoted fans.

I just...I can't do it...

Would you try another book from John Birmingham and/or Mark Zeisler?

Based on this and the first book in the series, no, I don't think so.

What was most disappointing about John Birmingham’s story?

The main character is disappointingly dense. We keep getting reminded about how he has multiple engineering degrees and is in charge of a team that performs dangerous and exacting work. What we actually get is a moron who rarely bothers to think, and when he does, it's typically not with his head. Time after time, we're shown that he is surrounded by competent if sometimes contrary individuals, and time after time he chooses his own inane answer instead of listening to sound advice. There's a major disconnect here, and it's infuriating.

Any additional comments?

I really wanted to like this series. It's a cool concept, and has some fun possibilities. It's fun to see the monsters of old run headlong into the technology of today. The main character is entirely too obnoxious, though.
