Thoroughly enjoyable in the way that watching The Thing or Jaws is - and you'll definitely remember it next time you're considering a dip in the ocean * SFX *
Grant's protagonists are as compelling as ever . . . and a surprisingthird-act twist . . . will have readers clamoring for another installment * RT BOOK REVIEWS *
Grant's skillfully crafted story combines science, horror, and mystery into a gripping novel of terror on the sea. Readers will never look at mermaids in the same way again * LIBRARY JOURNAL *
Mira Grant masterfully ratchets the tension up and down, holding readers firmly in her grip as the mysterious and the monstrous collide. Stirring up a chilling, claustrophobic undercurrent in the dark world of unexplored deeps, Grant keeps a firm grip on the wheel as the story turns its bow into rougher water . . . A delicious dive for readers with an appetite for original oceanic horror. * BOOKPAGE *
This book kept me reading long into the night, giggling at its gleeful push-pull embrace of B-movie horror tropes even as I gripped the pages tight * BARNES AND NOBLE BLOG *
What this author does so well is create a group of characters and makes you care about them - their hopes and dreams . . . then she throws them against a wall over and over again and makes them bleed . . . Cleverly drawn monsters that will visit you in your dreams. Descriptively speaking this is brilliant, brilliant stuff . . . Highly recommended * LIZ LOVES BOOKS *
I was entertained and enraptured from the first page to the last. Also, I will now NEVER go swimming or sailing anywhere near the Mariana Trench * BOOK RIOT *
Engrossing and adrenaline-fueled...with blood-soaked scares that balance thought-provoking philosophical dilemmas * SHELF AWARENESS *
