Epic adventure in a strange world by the author of The War of the Black Tower: An Epic Fantasy Trilogy.
A thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread.
Now the boiling, toxic, lightning-wreathed Atomic Sea has encompassed every ocean on the planet, and the creatures that live in it have become mutated and unnatural. The sea's taint can infect any human who comes in contact with it or with unprocessed seafood, killing them...or altering them. No one knows why the sea has become this way or what it portends, only that it's irrevocably changed the world.
Meanwhile, world war has erupted, and the small country of Ghenisa, like many others, is tottering on the brink of collapse under the onslaught of the Empire of Octung. Middle-aged widower Dr. Francis Avery is aboard a military whaling ship far out on the Atomic Sea when a series of murders onboard propels him down a rabbit hole of danger and terror unlike any other.
Soon he becomes aware of a spy on the ship, but that's just the beginning. With the help of the grizzled whaler Janx and a mysterious woman named Layanna, he will embark on an epic quest to save Ghenisa from Octung and unravel the secrets of the Atomic Sea.
This is the fourth volume of a multi-part saga of epic fantasy/science-fiction adventure and high stakes in an awe-inspiring world unlike any you've ever seen before. Welcome to the world of the Atomic Sea.

The Story Continues...
In this book in the series, I'd have to say Sheridan is my favorite character as we get to see some depth that she hasn't shown in previous books in this series.
I have listened to other works by Greenley. He continues to show development as a narrator and has a pleasant speaking voice that continues to set a smooth pace for the Atomic Sea books.
"Interdimensional beings have corrupted the planet and set off a world-wide war. The Octung and their 'gods' are close to world domination, but one small force stands against them."
If you like dark stories full of Cthulu-esque imagery and bloody battle scenes, check out the Atomic Sea series.
Great voice narration
Ray Greenley has provided fantastic voice overs for the characters of this story which have made the characters more memorable to me and have also improved upon the story itself.
The scenes where Avery has to deal with Sheridan in what he feel is right versus what he just feels.
Ray is a consummate professional who brings voice tailored narration to each character and gives the book a life of its own with more memorable moments over if I had read it page by page.
The book did not make me laugh or cry, but it kept me interested in the story the whole way through which is enough to ask.
I am interested in seeing where this story is taken, but really only in the means of hearing the narration which I have listened to for the past 4 installments.
