Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant

Into the Drowning Deep

Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ...

    "Did you really think we were the apex predators of the world?"-Dr. Jillian TothAAHHH! How can I write a review to do this book justice? I don't think I can convey just how glorious of a storyteller Mira Grant (AKA Seanan McGuire) is. The way I feel about her writing is similar to how diehard Stephen King fans feel about his work; she could publish her grocery list and I would pay top dollar for it. Grant/McGuire is by far one of the most underra...

    NOW AVAILABLE!!!There were appetites to be sated, no matter how cold the water became, no matter how strange the sea turned. As long as there were bellies, they would need to be fed. As long as there was life in the sea, there would be teeth.i read Rolling in the Deep a couple of years back, when it was presented as a one-off novella, and it blew my mind. it was all the things i loved about mira grant's writing from her newsflesh and parasitology...

    ARC provided by Hachette in exchange for an honest review. “Ships kept on disappearing. Since the start of man’s relationship with the sea, ships kept on disappearing. So assume the mermaids have never forgotten about us. We wrote them off as legends as soon as they were no longer knocking on our front door.” This is such a hard review to write, but I suppose three star reviews usually are. I just feel really torn on this one! I loved so ...

    Tory Stewart's sister was lost when she was aboard the ship Atargatis. The whole ship was lost and there were video clips of what looked like Mermaids destroying them. But they were always discredited as being an hoax.Now the film company that sent Tory's sister out on the quest to find mermaids is sending another crew out. This time they are collecting all the super smart scientists and have built a disaster proof ship. (That always turns out so...

    “It was beautiful, in its own terrible way. So many monsters are.” Well, this was terrifying. Into the Drowning Deep is all the best of the horror genre - tense atmosphere, creative horror, interesting characters, fantastic writing, and something going on beneath the surface. I had this book marketed to me as bi mermaid horror, and I’d definitely call that accurate. Perhaps the biggest strength of this book is how tense it is. I’ve seen o...

    Seven years after the fateful voyage of a doomed mockumentary hunting for signs of life in the deep, the fateful Mermaids, a truly scientific voyage is finally put together. The quest? To put the horrible rumors and/or the innuendo to rest. Or, as a few would prefer, to come back with proof positive that:Mermaids are REAL.Mira Grant, aka Seanan McGuire, has done it again. She's got this great talent at weaving horror into science fiction and brin...

    "Mankind has a responsibility to the Sea."I loved this book! It is a little bit of everything. I loved that it was intelligent, well researched, fascinating, entertaining and had me at the edge of my seat. This was a real page turner for me combining horror and mystery with science. A book about Mermaids you say? I say it is a book about greed, the quest for knowledge, a quest for answers, sea life, scientific exploration and of course, mermaids....

    If you are a horror junkie, you should check out this awesome book! I mean come on, KILLER MERMAIDS! You can't get much better than that! The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because there was a bit of inconsistencies but it was an ARC so they may have changed that!😉 You can check out my review @ http://touchmyspinebookreviews.com/20...

    3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/12/07/...Here’s the thing: I like Seanan McGuire, but for some strange reason or another her books always seem to rub me the wrong way when she writes as Mira Grant. Because of this, I almost didn’t pick up Into the Drowning Deep, but in the end, I’m glad I did—the premise of a horror novel about mermaids was just too amazing for me to pass up, and I’d be lying if I said I...

    Basically this is like Jurassic Park at sea, with face eating mermaids instead of velociraptors. If that sounds appealing, you will probably enjoy it. I think this is my favourite Mira Grant novel since Feed.

    You know a book has gotten to you when you want to sleep with the lights on even though you are miles away from the setting of said book (in this case the ocean) and couldn’t POSSIBLY be in any kind of danger from the events that you’ve just read about. I mean they are fictional anyway. Right?I’m going to sleep with the lights on.ANYWAY I loved this as I loved Mira Grant’s “Feed” series – with the passion of a true believer I lived ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.Seanan McGuire, you are a MASTER storyteller. Even when you're writing under your sci-fi/horror pseudonym, I love every single thing you write. I don't know how you do it, and so prolifically. Seriously, nonstop awesome, pouring out of you.This book reminded me of some of my favorite authors/series, particularly the Pendergast series by Douglas ...

    4 stars--I really liked it.This is the book equivalent of the movie Pacific Rim. It's not high cinema, but sometimes you just really want to watch giant robots kicking the snot out of interdimensional aliens. Or, in this book's case, want to read about deep-sea monsters eating a boatload of scientists. It was a lot of fun.It's possibly a bit long, and takes a bit to get going (there's a lot of character introduction and plot setup first), but onc...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.Reminiscent of Alien and Jurassic Park, Into the Drowning Deep is Mira Grant’s exploration of mermaids in their most natural and wicked form. Author of Feed and Parasite, she is also known for Rosemary and Rue and Every Heart a Doorway, under the name of Seanan McGuire. While I haven’t yet had the pleasure to read all her well-praised series, this new book part of the Rolling in the Deep seri...

    All the stars! Mira Grant is a brilliant storyteller and she is in top form with this book. I really hope this is the beginning of a series but it can definitely be read on it's own (no dreaded cliffhanger ending).

    First, I must tell you there is a prequel novella to this story. Rolling in the Deep, and while it is not necessary to read before beginning, it does set the account up nicely. Now as for me, anything Grant writes I am going to read. Her ability to combine sci-fi geekiness and horror creates page-turning reads that have found a place on my favorites bookshelf.Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a "moc...

    Didn't love the writing in this (reminded me of Benchley's novels and let's be real, not the strong point there), but loved the mythology and I do go wild over deep sea terror. A big book, but easy to zip through.Thanks to Orbit for the galley!

    Thanks to NetGalley and Orbit for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.Mira Grant who also writes urban fantasy under the name Seanan McGuire is one of my favorite authors because I know I can always count on her for her lush, exquisitely detailed writing and imaginative storytelling. When I saw her lates book was about killer mermaids, I immediately started drooling. I’m happy to say that Into the Drowning Deep did not disappoint...

    I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.4.5 Stars!My obsession with the Mariana Trench began when I was ten years old. It was that age when kids want to know about the biggest, the smallest, the oldest, the youngest, the highest and the deepest. I was thoroughly absorbed with the Mariana Trench, Challenger Deep, and... what was down there. I was briefly incensed when I saw something about ho...

    I have an obsession with creatures of the deep. I am fascinated by them, but at the same time I prefer to view them from afar. Like on TV shows, movies or through books. So I was fairly excited to see this book coming out by Mira Grant, an author who I am very familiar with and although some of her stuff I've hated (Symbiont) and some of it I've loved (Feed) she never fails in being an amazing storyteller.That being said I really enjoyed the stor...

    I'm not a horror genre reader but I do love me some paranormal. Ancient myths and mysteries? LOVE THEM! But I usually only read them in urban fantasies.So this realistic horror tale was a bit of a departure from my usual reads but I dove in head first with glee because it was Mira Grant and she can really do no wrong in my eyes. And pretty much any of my book buddy friends' eyes either. Whether she's writing under this pen name or under "Seanan M...

    Humanity had chosen the land over the sea millennia ago, and sometimes [..] she thought the sea still held a grudge.I've only read one series by Grant but I can safely say I have a love-hate relationship with this author's writing. I hate that there's so much to get through in order to get to the gritty, delicious, bits of her stories but I love it once I'm there. And like her Newsflesh series, of which the first was rough for me but was mostly p...

    Ahoy there me mateys! I received this sci-fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .Well ye landlubbers, this is how the mermaids of the deep truly be. Not some beautiful singing maiden longing to be on land but menacing fierce fighting and killin' machines that will rip yer face off and guzzle yer flesh. Arrrrr! Nasty creatures they be. Much thanks to Mira Grant fer giving up a better understandin...

    “It was beautiful, in its own terrible way. So many monsters are.” Yeah sure, mermaids are all well and good until they come and EAT YOUR DING-DANG FACE OFF.OK, I completely loved this book. I love all things mermaids (or sirens, as the case may be) and so many mermaid-ish things I read are teenage girls discovering they're a mermaid princess, or teenage mermaids just wanting to be part of your world, and blah-dee-freakin'-blah. These are no...

    My father was born in a small town on the ocean, the kind of town where you don’t marry anyone from town due to the risk of three-eyed children. Luckily, my father married someone “from away.” I’ve got: two eyes, ten toes and ten fingers. My father taught me an appreciation for the ocean, tempered with a few ounces of fear. Mira Grant has captured the beauty, temptation and ruthless danger of the ocean.The ocean and the monsters she harbo...

    “The trouble with discovery is that it goes two ways. For you to find something, that thing must also find you.” I read the prequel to this book, Rolling in the Deep, earlier this month and I'm so glad that I did. What a perfect set up to this book. Now, you don't need to read it to enjoy this one, but it does help to put some things into perspective as they do reference it quite a bit. This also works perfectly as a stand alone and I highly,...

    Quite frankly, I cannot name another book of the horror genre that I would concider a favourite. Or worth re-reading for that matter. This one, however, I will definitely re-read and I bet more than once. RTC. (once I'm done with all the books I am currently reading and carve out some time to actually think and write about said books)

    Into the Drowning Deep was an amazing follow-up to Rolling in the Deep; it gave me all the backstory and build-up to the sightings that was missing in the prequel novella, plus more in-depth information on what the mermaids actually are and what really killed the crew of the Atargatis. I didn't want this book to end and I really hope there won't be too long of a wait for the next book in the series. (view spoiler)[Also, I was so pleased there wer...
