about

In the final installment of the Aquarius Rising trilogy, tensions between Humans and Aquarians have reached the boiling point. In Book 1, Redeemer Edmund Bryce unleashes the Medusa Plague that entombs Aquarian reef-cities in stone as he strives to restore the scorched lands of the Barrens to health at the expense of the oceans. Ocypode, an Aquarian Atavism who serves as Chief Lorekeeper of Phylamook Reef, and his motley collection of comrades manage to stop Bryce and avert disaster. In Book 2, Megalops, an Aquarian biosculptor, is driven mad with grief by the slaughter of his mate and daughter in the wake of the Medusa Massacres. His relentless quest for vengeance leads him to unleash the Vendetta Virus against Redeemer enclaves and causes Aquarius to erupt into civil war.

Ocypode and his friends foil Megalops, but not without tragic casualties that spur a Redeemer ally to reveal everything about Earth's covert warfare to the public. Instead of shaming the combatants to sue for peace, these revelations inspire desperation on both sides and trigger an escalation of hostilities that threatens to destroy all humanoid life on the embattled planet. The tribes of whales sing an ancient prophecy of the Storm-Slayer, a legendary child of Mother Earth and Mother Ocean who is destined to defuse the conflict and save the world. Ocypode's cetacean friends believe he is that mythic figure. Destiny weighs heavily on Ocypode's shoulders as he struggles to forge an alliance between the scattered, distrustful child species of humanity, as well as the Human Guardians beneath the waves and the Human Redeemers dedicated to resurrection of the land, to chart a path to peace.

Both sides resort to waging war by proxy, using barbaric hordes of reptilian Saurians and brutal smart-sharks to commit atrocities against victims on land and sea. War demands sacrifice. Ocypode understands this all too well and is willing to pay in blood... but how steep is the price of peace? And can the world afford to pay it?

Customer Reviews of Price Of Eden

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good book. Price of Eden is the third book in the Aquarius Rising. Following the aftermath of what happens in book two, tensions are high. Global warming has had its effect on the coastal cities. Many of them are under water. There is a breed of half human – half dolphin residing in the waters. The story focuses on Ocypode this time. A tribe of whales sees him as the storm- slayer, the one that is going to bring peace. As always, nothing comes easy for the hybrids. Ocypode’s destiny and the fate of this world are determined in this nonstop action thriller story. The author has once again created a masterpiece. This science fiction novel is written with many analogies and vocabulary terms, which none science fiction fans might find hard to understand, however, the story is so appealing that I believe it would not affect the enjoyment of the plot. There is a special something in the way this author builds this fantasy world. I felt this in reading his previous work and again in this one as well. You really do feel for the characters and wish wholeheartedly for them to survive the ordeals they are put through. There is a very nice flow and connectivity between the chapters and the storyline. The plot is superbly put together and delivers a beautiful ending. I believe that you would benefit from reading the first and second book before approaching this one. I recommend this book to any science fiction fan and anyone that likes a good full on action saga.
