Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite.

“Deadly Descent” by R. G. Porter is an altogether too feasible scenario, in which a new life form is discovered at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Having evolved at such an intense pressure, in absolute darkness, the organism undergoes changes when brought aboard the pressure-controlled, well-lit undersea laboratory, “Titan”.

Having received an invitation to participate, by none other than her long-time friend and mentor, Dr. Justin Niles, Dr. Tori

This book reminded me very much of Alien, but underwater.

On arriving Tori meets Lt. John Akers, pilot of the sub which takes her down to Titan, the research facility. They discover that Dr Niles hasn't been heard of for quite some time. They also find out t

Let me start off by saying that when i first read the synopsis to this book i thought it was just going to be another zombie book. Oh how wrong i was! Deadly Descent was so different then anything i have ever read. The plot was amazingly original, making it such a fresh read. The author did a wonderful job incorporating the fears of the unknown with John and Tori coming in from the outside into a situation that no one knew about as well as the fear of the characters being secluded from the world ...more

This book is a great and fun read. The author did a wonderful job of capturing my fears of both the water and confined spaces through her main character, Dr. Victoria Cutter. I also really enjoyed the fact that the characters in this book held composure and never went off half cocked or took off screaming.

Dr. Cutter is both excited and nervous about going to the state of the art facility at the bottom of the ocean to study a new plant life that has been discovered at depths she never thought pos

Part science fiction, part horror, and a dash of classic adventure game, Deadly Decent is a thrilling read. The action is fast paced, the terror quite vivid and the characters most resourceful. The setting is far below the surface of the ocean and the writing style keeps the pressure of the depth, danger, and mystery on high through out. Really an entertaining and frightening read with enough homage to the genres to hook the scifi horror buffs on track yet enough original twists to hook the less ...more

Deadly Desent

Absolutely amazing! I could not put the book down. It reminds me of zombies, and the walking dead. It is a great story.

Never read this, nor did I want to, but can't figure out how to get it off. Sigh.
