    Great!

    I was a little skeptical at first but this book ended up being really good!! It was a page turner and I looked forward to reading it every day. This is the first book I've read of hers and I will definitely be looking for her name from now on!

    It pulled me into the deep

    Great book! So glad I picked it up on a whim; I normally research books a lot before I buy them. I was a bit worried it was going to be some jaws knock off, but it is true amazing! Lots of action, science and sci-fi

    Terrifying, Rollicking Ride!

    You'd never know that Mira Grant is the psydonym for Seanan McGuire if you only went by writing samples. Grant's books are scientifically based, horrific thrillers that keep you on edge for most of the book. Into the Drowning Deep is no exception to the rule. Right from the very two things are very clear: - Mermaids are real. - They are not friendly like Ariel... Plot I found the overall plot unique in that the mermaids are monsters (I don't think I've ever encountered this idea before) and yet a bit standard in that it follows the typical monster book timeline. Monsters appear, not everyone is convinced, people investigate, monsters appear, etc. In the case of this book there was really o other way to handle the discovery of mermaids and so it was a good choice for a classic timeline to be used. I think Grant chose well to have a classic monster plot with a very unclassical (is that a word?) monster. Timeline Few authors are very good at ensuring their timelines and timing between events makes sense. Michael Crichton was someone who had a really good handle on this. How long does it take to walk an area, shoot a gun, travel to the ocean, etc. And for all the scientific information in Into the Drowning Deep the thing that bothered me the most was that each chapter indicated the date (day, year) and location we were at. Which is all well and good when it's relevant. But for most of this book it is not relevant. What would have been far more helpful is the time on that day of that year given how many events happen close together. I'd have to go back and map out the timeline to be sure but I believe that at one time a character mentions a time and then a few chapters later a different character mentions the time and it's in the past (even though it is clearly supposed to be linear). Maybe I'm picky but this kind of thing really bugs me and gets in the way of my enjoyment of the ongoing story. I start thinking too hard about the continuity instead of enjoying the ride. This was my biggest annoyance in this book, and given how many authors break it (on a constant basis), it's actually a fairly mild complaint. Rollicking Ride For someone, like me, whose standard genres do not include horror, and who has massive hydrophobia (fear of water); Into the Drowning Deep didn't even have to try that hard to scare me. But regardless of those two factors I think the average person would be both intrigued by our mermaids as well as horrified by them. Grant describes the biological water creatures in detail and has clearly thought about what makes it most intimidating or scary; as well as what makes it practical and scientifically plausible given it's habitat and evolution. Science I'm no marine biologist or any of the other fancy scientists featured; in fact I'm not a scientist of any discipline, but I felt throughout the entire book like Grant had done her homework in regards to the plausible biology, environment and evolution of the mermaids. It reminded me a lot of Crichton. I'd be comfortable saying that enough research was done to make it all sound legit. And maybe it's not perfect but hey it's fictional (we hope!) mermaids after all! I'm not concerned about each individual trait being scientifically accurate so much as it all seeming to make sense and flow with the story being told. Grant certainly achieved this for me. Overall I really, really enjoyed this book. Into the Drowning Deep is easily a book that will stick with me and that I would happily recommend to anyone that wants a good horror/thriller story. My husband is a big horror fan and has read Grant before. I believe he is now very interested in reading this one based on my reactions to it. He even had to console me one night when I woke up thinking mermaids were after me! (Yes I am a bit of a wuss, but remember massively hydrophobic so this was a challenge from page 1 for me). Of all the things I'll say I'd like to say, I want to thank Mira Grant for giving me more reasons why the ocean is scary as hell and why I'll stay on land. I'd also like to thank Grant for taking a sweet, pretty, only sometimes a bit scary mythological creature and making it a true monster that could (and will) haunt nightmares. So be forewarned there is no Ariel, Princes or magical transformations in this story. You can be rest assured that happily ever after is (obviously) not in the cards.

    Great author, great book!

    This is the first book in what looks to be a series called Rolling in the Deep which was also the title of a prequel. Victoria (Tory) lost her sister in a ship disaster while filming a “mockumentary” for an entertainment company looking for mermaids. However, images leaked out that looked like it was a slaughter by strange creatures, not a sea disaster. Tory has made it her mission since the tragedy to find out what is really going on in the Mariana Trench, where it all happened. Seven years after it all went down, the entertainment company wants to go back, but this time they will be prepared with scientists, including Tory, security people, and a huge ship because the images were right. It was a slaughter by what they believe to be mermaids, and they need to go back to prove the company wasn’t at fault. But with so many hidden agendas on board the new ship, will everyone get their answers or will it become another slaughter? I love this author whether she writers under Mira Grant or Seanan McGuire. She is so deft with weaving words into whatever atmosphere she wants, and this one was a doozy! Haunting, scary, creepy, touching, this book had it all. I must admit that I am afraid of deep waters, so that added to scary vibe, but to be fair, her wonderful writing probably scared those not afraid of the water. While the book did take a while to get going and the end was a little abrupt, this book was a wonderful read, and I really have to say I hope to read more about what was in the deep, because the end left me chilled wanting more! Highly recommend! Thanks to NetGalley and Orbit Books for the e-copy which I voluntarily reviewed.
