Summary

In the near future, political tensions between the United States and China are at an all-time high. Then a catastrophic explosion on the moon cleaves a vast gash in the lunar surface, and the massive electromagnetic pulse it unleashes obliterates Earth's electrical infrastructure. To plumb the depths of the newly created lunar fissure and excavate the source of the power surge, the feuding nations are forced to cooperate on a high-risk mission to return mankind to the moon.
Now, a diverse, highly skilled ensemble of astronauts - and a pair of maverick archaeologists plucked from the Peruvian jungle - will brave conspiracy on Earth and disaster in space to make a shocking discovery.
Ocean of Storms is an epic adventure that spans space and time as its heroes race to fulfill an ancient mission that may change the course of humanity's future.

Just not very good

I think the author just read a book on the Apollo program and that is about the extent of his knowledge on the subject of space travel. Things could simply not be done the way he suggests - totally and utterly impossible. Read this only if you have no technical knowledge about the space program, if you have any such knowledge, the book will upset you time after time. Characters are stereotypical on steroids and not well developed.
The bottom line is that it is not well written and boring and disrupted by tech errors. The narrator is also not very good.

I gave up about 1/3 of the way into the book and I rarely do that.

Great narration, decent story

Ocean of Storms is a well-paced sci-fi action novel that puts America against China in another space race. The main idea that drives the story is certainly interesting. While it has been done before, I liked the way the authors chose to spin it out this time.

Ocean of Storms gets enough points for sheer entertainment value to negate some of the unbelievability issues. This is very much one of those books that you’d expect to see as a Syfy movie. Maybe even a little two part mini-series. If you think too hard about it, it’ll crash and burn, but if you sit back and enjoy the ride, you’ll have a blast.

One of the things that I just could not believe is that Americans couldn’t easily recreate the technology we used to get to the moon. As famous as those endeavors were, and as much as we’ve built off of them since then, this is almost impossible to believe. It is a major hiccup in the story. The second hiccup is where the EMP basically only slaps at technology instead of giving it a swift thump. My understanding is that while EMPs aren’t quite as dangerous as what’s typically displayed, neither are they something that provides only a minor inconvenience. There are other issues, but these were the two that really bothered me.

Luke Daniels is the biggest part of why I still hold this book in affection. He did a great job narrating the various characters and definitely brought them to life. They might not have been the most well-rounded individuals but they were still fun to listen to. (Actually, they’re rather one dimensional, but I still liked them!) I initially had rated this book higher than what I eventually settled on. I did it because he made me enjoy the story so much that I didn’t ever actually think about it. After I’d disengaged my happy story geek-out though, the issues with Ocean of Storms kept rising to the surface.

With some tweaks to the story, Ocean of Storms could easily go from being a fun read to being a good one.
