Publisher's Summary

Reporter Kate Kilroy accepts an assignment to travel on the Valkyrie, a German ship veiled in secrecy for decades after it was discovered adrift in 1939 with only one passenger aboard, a baby boy named Isaac Feldman.
Obsessed with understanding his origins, Feldman has spent a small fortune restoring the Valkyrie to try to solve the mystery. Assembling a team of experts and sparing no expense, he aims to precisely recreate the circumstances of the Valkyrie's doomed final voyage. Little does Feldman or his team know that the ship has an agenda of its own. As the Valkyrie begins to weave its deadly web, Kate realizes that she must not only save herself, but the world as she knows it.

The plot plops

Any additional comments?

The book began well. A sad writer is chosen (for her looks?) as a reporter for an unusual journey in an old ship. As the plot thickens at the end, it becomes unbelievable. Someone who was apparently a good guy becomes the bad guy- a common plot ploy. However, his hatred and eventual demise don't seem true to his earlier character. I did not enjoy it and did not finish the book.

You unlock this door with the key of imagination.

So I read the handful of the reviews posted about this book. And personally I find a deplorable that a person has never written more than a 2 paragraph review would demean the hundreds and thousands of hours that an author puts it into a hundred thousand word novel but thats off topic. A great many of them like to compare this book 21 one by Jeremy Robinson. However what seems like comparing apes to mammoths. Jeremy Robinson likes to write epic adventures beyond the scope of reality though this one is pushing the boundaries of your imagination I find it more like The Twilight Zone on scope. It's more like a Rod Serling adventure into what is possible as opposed to an epic JRR Tolkien or Jeremy Robinson adventure where the objective seemes to be " let's see how far we can push into the absurd before people will stop reading." Personally I found it very well worth the read, characters complex and interesting and push the boundaries of social norm. Its difficult to blend two realities seamlessly as the author has done it in this piece of work with a truly haunting setting. Its very much like the Outlook Hotel on the seven seas. What should also be noted is the true and very dark history that set the stage for this novel, as well as the complex folklore that sets the stage for the dramatic events in the central plot.
