Every once in a while, creatures just seem to show up and ruin a vacation. That's what happens in a few very long day and nights. Josh Peterman on vacationing the Caribbean, soon encounters a Killer Hurricane and the things it dredges up from the depths. As Josh attempts to ride out the storm on the roof of the hotel he was in, the storm surge and the winds blow him out to sea, many miles from little Cayman island.

Things go down hill as Josh and a few others together discover there are many stra

I enjoyed it a lot.

This was my third Gurley book. The first two I read were decent, and I gave 4 stars. They'd had some editing issues. From the depths has a couple too, maybe 5 errors total, which I can easily provide to the author. In the previous books, I deducted a star for the errors. Not this time. This book was so well written and the characters so well fleshed out that I felt it would have been an injustice to deduct a star.

Well done, Mr. Gurley...very well done.

I hope there is a sequel

I really enjoyed this book, I didn't want to put it down. This book will give you nightmares going out on the huge ocean. Huge creatures of all types pop out of the water and create havoc.

Outstanding Aquatic Horror

Wow wow wow, this book is extraordinary! This is one action packed thriller. It is easily one of the best aquatic horror books, I've ever read.

This grabbed me from the first paragraph. Couldn't put it down. It was scary, exciting and really good. It was told really well. Except for the nude scene I would recommend this to everyone.

After this read, definitely will not be taking any cruises in the Atlantic Ocean. Definitely a worth while read. Very enjoyable!

Enough gore to satisfy but not drown. Plenty of action. Enough realism to make it scary. An engrossing read. Would make a great movie.

Worth a read. Not quite Crichton or Benchley, yet, but still a worthy effort.

Entertaining,fun read

Really enjoyed the story line and the depth of the characters. A little more attention to detail on the interchangeability of the weapons ammo could be better for realism though.

Sea monsters galore!

This book had a good premise and a lot of action. However, it could have used more character development and a little more editing.
