Description

A MAIDEN VOYAGE…

The Pepper Kay is no stranger to the open seas, but now she has a new captain: God. His maiden voyage aboard the newly-acquired vessel will be operated by a crew greener than seaweed. With a reputation like God’s, they were all he could find.

NO MAN’S WATER…

The Pepper Kay and her greenhorn crew, captained by God and his shady deckboss Nash, voyage into the brutal unknown of the Bering Strait in search of Dungeness crab. But, when a storm rolls in and the crew hauls from the depths an impossibility, something ripped from the pages of nautical folklore, tensions mount and the crew separates into factions: good versus evil.

THOSE WHO DWELL IN DARKNESS…

Nash has plans for their newest catch, plans God is not a part of, and the deckboss will wade through blood and chum before he allows his goal to be blocked. As the crew dwindles, laid low one by one, the remaining shipmates must faceoff against not only the human evil of Nash, but something much, much older.

Well that was fun. A kind of messed up version of that Discovery Channel fishing show, 'Deadliest Catch'. Lots of action, lots of swearing and buckets of gore, this is a very entertaining horror set on the Bering Sea. Recommended.

A raggedy motley crew of desperate individuals signs on for a fishing boat gig in Bering Strait, their nets scoop up something otherworldly and soon they find themselves in the middle of a terrifying nightmare of Poseidon proportions. It wouldn’t have been a nice trip anyway. None of them may be pure soul, but there is one among them that’s pure evil. With a supernatural element added on, it’s a real doozy. One way ticket to watery oblivion. And that’s the story. Perfectly themed for October, but good enough to disturb you on any dark night. This is pretty much a how-to manual on disturbing. Some of it is done in a manner so profoundly visceral, that it was too much for this reader. But that aside, the quality of writing here is absolutely top shelf. It’s a character driven story, and while it’s also definitively a creature feature, it doesn’t rely on the cheap ploys of the latter, instead taking the much-preferred measured approach to unleashing its terror. A slender volume, 200 pages of lean mean frights at sea that’s impressively effective, this book works and works well on many levels, so prepare for a sea adventure that doesn’t so much sing Sail Away to you as makes you profoundly happy to be a landlubber safe on land. Recommended. Thanks Netgalley.
