about

Whales begin sinking ships. Toxic, eyeless crabs poison Long Island's water supply. The North Sea shelf collapses, killing thousands in Europe. Around the world, countries are beginning to feel the effects of the ocean's revenge as the seas and their inhabitants begin a violent revolution against mankind. At stake is the survival of the Earth's fragile ecology—and ultimately, the survival of the human race itself.

The apocalyptic catastrophes of The Day After Tomorrow meet the watery menace of The Abyss in this gripping, scientifically realistic, and utterly imaginative thriller.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I'd say this was a few years ahead of its time in terms of climate change awareness/warning and I wanted to love it, but unfortunately it felt like an old school sci-fi book that cares more about the "aliens" and scientific aspects than the human characters and in the end it just devolved into nonsense. I was bored.

“It’s doubtful you’ll ever come up for air ... this ultimate summer read that recalls the best of Crichton and King.”
