The silky brush was erotic, like hands everywhere, the multiple lovers she had never had, and then it was not. The first stinging jolt surprised her…

A godly nun, the victim of untold puncturings in Palau’s Jellyfish Lake. A honeymoon couple, their kayaks overturned by orcas off Vancouver Island: in the green deeps the whales drive the girl through the water with a force t

I received a copy of this book from Goodreads: First Reads Giveaways.

First off: This novel lacks pages numbers which is more annoying than some would think.
The back cover summary sounded interesting but it should be made known that some events mentioned on the back don't really concur until about 75% through the book.
McAlpine writes in clean, to the point prose for the most part. He lacks visual detailing, especially with his characters. I had no clear-cut images of people in

I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads: First Reads giveaway.

Overall, this was a really interesting novel. I liked the concept very much, although the mystery part of it took awhile to get going. For example, the events previewed in the summary and on the back of the book don't happen until much later in the story. The main character, Cedar, runs a dive boat operation in Palau with her teenage son; she takes dive groups out to a reef where they have the opportunity to interact with

An eye opening "thriller" with a message: "Humans, stop polluting the oceans! Bad things can happen to you." There ARE consequences!! I liked the relationship between the mother and son and I could feel her sadness in sending him away for school, knowing in the long run it was the best for him. I feel that way everytime my sons go back to school after a holiday with us.

The author, Ken tells me that sea animals actually have altered their behavior due to the negative influence by Man.

Ken McAlpine exercises his sharp mind, his open heart, and his sense of global responsibility to enlighten and entertain. Juncture is at times poetic, romantic, and tragic. A story that fetches sadness through accountability, motivates one to personal responsibility, and ultimately inspires hope.
