WOW What an amazing book Lockwood lures you in from the first page and keeps reeling till there s no escape I highly recommend this title to fans of books like Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Fragment. This book was just ridiculous Between the unrealistic creatures and the awkward racist not racist comments that kept popping up in the dialog this one was a total flop The reviews ratings were discouraging, but I took a chance Honestly, I had the whole thing figured out by page 29 Carnivorous, cannibalistic pack hunting red devils I wonder that in the sea that could be If your answer isn t

cannibalistic pack hunting red devils I wonder that in the sea that could be If your answer isn t squid then it s time to scurry back to 7th grade biology All the suspense writing tactics are worthless if you make the answer easy to figure out.Let s just say they didn t make me afraid to go back in the waterAll the elements of a Grade A Creature Feature were there, but the delivery sucked like whoa I had hoped for somethinglike Steve Alten s MEG series and was sadly disappointed Sorry Below, it just didn t work out The perfect beach read that I would never read at the beach.There s just something primal about being hunted by one of nature s cold blooded killers, one that taps into our fears of the unknown, of being torn limb from limb, but most importantly, of a ruthless, emotionless killing machine that runs on instinct alone, something so devoid of compassion and mercy that it sees us as its next meal and nothingRyan Lockwood s Below is one of theheart poundingly

fears of the unknown, of being torn limb from limb, but most importantly, of a ruthless, emotionless killing machine that runs on instinct alone, something so devoid of compassion and mercy that it sees us as its next meal and nothingRyan Lockwood s Below is one of theheart poundingly entertaining creature horror books I ve read and I ve been reading these ever since Steve Alten s Meg scared the crap out of me as a kid precisely because he understands that, so while, yeah, there s nothingto this than reading about view spoiler people being eaten by rabid squids hide spoiler , it s really the ride that counts.To put it another way, the SyFy Channel on occasion airs monster of the week movies The plots aren t groundbreaking by any measure and mostly involve people getting eaten until an action packed finale that hardly makes any sense, the characters if they re not eaten within the first five minutes arecreature fodder than developed maybe with the exception of the hero who gets some development in , and the special effects usually involvegore than that Showtime show about that serial killer, but, at the end of the day, I still enjoy them for what they are, B grade creature flicks hey, not everyone can be Spielberg and direct a Jurassic Park after all The better ones, in fact, even rise to the level of enjoyable popcorn flick if they can get some decent acting and a passable script.Below is essentially the book equivalent of one of those movies not Sharknado obviously As I said, the suspense comes, not from the act of being eaten, but in the minutes before, when you have the ominous Jaws theme knockoff playing in the background, the creature closing in, and you know whoever s on camera is essentially doomed, because these aren t tigers or wild dogs or anything remotely mammalian we re talking about, these are things whose tiny reptilian or whatever brains only understand the act of bringing its murderous appendages down on its completely unsuspecting prey well, except for that one inkling of disquiet, the tiny part in each of us that suspects there are things in this world who can hurt us, but that s just silly, isn t it Then you rinse and repeat with the next character, and the next, and the next it s not a complex formula As long as the anticipation s there, as long as the mind of the monster is clear, and Lockwood does all these things, it s all good, right For me, yes, though I do have some caveats There s a reason I compared Below to an entertaining SyFy monster movie and not anything else, because even though Lockwood does have a knack for suspense, he still falls into a lot of the same, obvious traps The plot kind of falls off a cliff towards the last third and becomes excessively silly in its attempt to set up an explosive finale, the characters are basically stock characters the tough scientist chick turned damsel in distress right when it counts, the emotionally distant ex military guy, even the token minority best friend , and the actual attacks themselves eventually run up against logic why the victims of the dive attack would wash up on shore while the victims of the yacht attack don t, even though the dive site is so much farther offshore, for starters , though Below felt a bit grittier than the usual books in the genre as a result of Lockwood s incorporation of some overtly racist characters might not have been politically correct, but I didn t feel that made the book racist, but rather it was done to emphasize that nature, unlike man, doesn t discriminate.Despite that, the reason I enjoy these books is for that feeling of ominous dread before an attack and then seeing the gory aftermath, and Lockwood delivers there Sure, the plot s nothingthan view spoiler man eating rabid squid attacks hide spoiler , but there are worse ways to spend a day of mindless reading I originally put this on hold because it was Halloween and I was in the mood for everything scary, and nothing scares methan creatures of the deep.I wasn t expecting much, other than a typical action story that would keep me entertained Unfortunately this book didn t even deliver on that.There was some poor planning at one point a character tells his friend he fed his dog, then two pages later the character feeds his dog.Along with some super awkward scenes between the main character and I originally put this on hold because it

Unfortunately this book didn t even deliver on that.There was some poor planning at one point a character tells his friend he fed his dog, then two pages later the character feeds his dog.Along with some super awkward scenes between the main character and his love interest At one point she tells him that he needs to move on from his dead wife because he doesn t seem that interested in her But I guess that is super attractive because then he abruptly is into her They had as much chemistry as a pair of rocks, but suddenly they are in LUUURVE But the real thing that pushed me into hatred for this book was the racist and derogatory comments towards Mexicans scattered throughout the book No real point to them I m not sure if I m reading into what the author feels, or if he feels his characters arereal if they are racists The main character of course isn t racist but all his friends are But they ve been friends FOREVER so it is okay Even when they beat up on his other friend who is a Mexican cop.Just NO All I can say is WOW This book is such a great read Clearly, the author is well versed in marine biology and the art of science fiction I could not wait to turn each page and find out what was going to happen next The kicker it could actually happen I never would have guessed this was Ryan Lockwood s first novel This guy is sure to be the next big thing in the realm of science fiction I highly recommend this book. This book is one big WOW I won this book through my library.I loved this book it has suspense, drama, romance and thrills This is a real page turner, I could not put this book down Lockwood has great knowledge of marine biology and the book shows this It is very well written I can not believe this is his first novel, I will most definitely keep my eye on Ryan Lockwood.Great beach book but don t be surprised if you stay out of the water .DOWNLOAD ♶ Below ♴ In all his years as a professional diver, Will Sturman has never encountered a killing machine ferocious than the great white shark or as deadly as the piranha Now, off the coast of California, something is rising from the deep and multiplying Voracious, unstoppable, and migrating north, an ungodly life form trailed by a gruesome wake of corpses With the help of the brilliant and beautiful oceanographer Valerie Martell, Will finds himself in a race against time to stop the slaughter by a predator capable of devastating the world s oceans Pray it kills you quickly P.
