Operation Mermaid: The Project Kraken Incident is a wonderful mermaid book.The story is presented in a form of documents from Homeland Security which is a unique idea and it flows well. This futuristic sci-fi/fantasy story is about mermaids and sirens that the government has known about and has even had treaties with for decades. The Russians and one of the power hungry mermaids/sirens, the Sea Hag, has a top secret plan to destroy sea life using a underwater device. She tests it out a couple of ...more

The Mermaids are Coming!

This was an intriguing mermaid tale - science fiction with history and fantasy interwoven in the story. It was also written in a unique style, in the form government reports by Homeland Security. Mermaid lovers will be mesmerized by the premise of large numbers of women transforming into mermaids.

My curiosity and fascination with the title, Operation Mermaid: The Project Kraken Incident, moved me to read this book. What I received was wealth of information about mermaids, government security, and the San Diego area including the ocean. When Special Agent Ted Waters is tasked with leading the investigation of a resurrected cold war military weapon and the supernatural transformation of humans into mermaids, he gets more than he bargained for. With the help of his wife, Special Agent Angel ...more

This book was an interesting book to read. It's written in the form of government reports and reads more like a play. Mermaid fan would still enjoy it. For me, I would get slightly confused by the constant use of initials and have to keep going back to the guide provided in order to remember who it was that was speaking. That was the only downside for me. Otherwise, I did enjoy this book.

This book was so much FUN! I really enjoyed the creativity of how it was formatted as a crime scene reports, this lead to some hilarious one liners! Just a fun, fun story and a great read! Highly recommended!

I enjoyed this book, but found it a little hard to read; it reads more like a play, and uses initials instead of names each time someone is talking. It would have been easier for me to read if it had the names instead of the initials (that I had to go back and reference a few times). With that being said, the story itself was captivating, flowed well, and kept my interest. It really was a good book. The story is told mainly from the view point of Homeland Security, walking us through the trials ...more

I enjoyed the book. It's the second mermaid story I've ever read. It's definitely an original story. I like the document format of telling the story. My only issue (and its slight) is that the ending seemed rushed. Would have liked to known more about the mermaid armies that were gathered to fight, the fighting styles, more info about the ancients and more involvement in their part. I also didn't understand some of the motivations in the ending. But other than that, I did like it and would recom ...more

When I first heard about this I thought it sounded interesting, but after reading it by about 20% in I changed my mind. It’s written as a bunch of government redacted top secret reports and mainly is just a bunch of interviews with women who were surprised they became mermaids at their kid’s birthday parties, etc. and how the government has to keep this from the public. Especially since they’ve been aware of real mermaids since the 40’s.

Change mermaids to aliens and you’ve got it.
