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 strange and terrible things coming up from below. Eventually leading an attempt to capture a gigantic monster from millions of years ago to learn from it. Something's prove to be none to easy.

Je Gurley puts together a fun and fast paced thriller in the vein of a two part mini-series.
Its the type of story where reading it, you might keep thinking to yourself, "What would I do if I was in that situation?"
Its that kind of thing that keeps you turning the pages. I would like to say that not every novel is like that, but every now and then you'll find one that fits the title.
This book has a little of Jaws in it as well as maybe s few other things that might seem similar. I like that the author pays homage to those ideas. There are a lot of books I have read recently that would make really good movies if done right. This could be one of those books.

By no means is it perfect, there aren't many that are, But if you enjoy it then its been worthwhile.
As a book that was print of demand, and being of a larger format size for a paperback, there are a few little errors that could have been taken care of. Editing could have been tighter. But overlooking that, it was a pretty good and enjoyable read.

And after all, how can any monster fan pass up a book about creatures from the deep?

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 to this book, because I want more from these characters!

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.

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.
