Why when thousands of human lives have been lost hasn't a single corpse been found? Well that's what our small team of marine biologist protagonists have been sent to find out and their mission is a great read for adventure loversI'm sad to be leaving this series behind but at least it goes out on a real cracker of an adventure story I can only hope humanity's actual future could be as bright as the future Alan Dean Foster has envisioned in this series

KINDLE ☆ Þ Alan Dean Foster

Oating townships until one day something rose from the deep destroying all in its pat After reading some serious books this was a great piece of escapism The premise is that humans gave the cetaceans this ocean world to live and evolve The cetaceans allow humans to settle small parts of this world Something is now destroying the floating towns Is it human or are the cetaceans getting their revenge?
