Publisher's Summary

An epic adventure in a strange world by the best-selling author of War of the Black Tower, an epic fantasy trilogy...
A thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread.
Now the boiling, toxic, lightning-wreathed Atomic Sea has encompassed every ocean on the planet, and the creatures that live in it have become mutated and unnatural. The sea's taint can infect any human who comes in contact with it or with unprocessed seafood, killing them...or altering them. No one knows why the sea has become this way or what it portends, only that it has irrevocably changed the world.
Meanwhile, world war has erupted, and the small country of Ghenisa, like many others, is tottering on the brink of collapse under the onslaught of the Empire of Octung. Middle-aged widower Dr. Francis Avery is aboard a military whaling ship far out on the Atomic Sea when a series of murders onboard propels him down a rabbit-hole of danger and terror unlike any other.
Soon he becomes aware of a spy on the ship, but that's just the beginning. With the help of the grizzled whaler, Janx, and a mysterious woman named Layanna, he will embark on an epic quest to save Ghenisa from Octung and unravel the secrets of the Atomic Sea.
This is the third volume of a multi-part saga of an epic fantasy and science fiction adventure and high stakes in an awe-inspiring world unlike any you've ever seen before. Welcome to the world of the Atomic Sea.

Great to be back...

So today and tomorrow, I'm back with Avery and the crew in the fight against the Octung!

It was great to be with them again. I can't help but totally get involved in the world here, Avery as a character had come on in leaps and bounds. I must admit, I was a little shocked that he and Layanna get together. But, the more their relationship grew through this part of the story I can see why. Avery is a vastly different character than when he started this. He's stronger and more resilient than anyone I've met, but he's still vastly flawed in some of his decisions and I guess that is what still makes him human.

Janx and Hilde are such fun characters, Janx will pretty much do anything for the cause now, and Hilde's constant 'this will never work' but 'oh well, lets go' is funny.

The explanations in here of the Collosom and then the Overloards and gods is really good, it's great to start to put together the whole world that is inside Jack's head. Sad to see MurBlog back though on the other side :( that's really bad for their friends.


There weren't any really moving moments in here, in regards to story. Perhaps because of the grisly nature of the sacrifices, and the overlords. It's horrific to think that these people are so brain washed that they'd go in their willingly. Was also quite shocked that Avery poisoned himself so that he could go in the inner temple. Uggh, glad at least that his mutations weren't so bad he was totally deformed.

Sheridon and Annie turning up was quite a surprise, and this is where Avery makes the biggest mistake and takes her back to the Black Sect. Which is their downfall, you know it's coming because of it. I have to admit, I didn't like that Janx, Hilde and Layanna didn't inform Avery that the weapon they've been building to stop the war needs extra dimensional fuel to work, this is a big wrench when Avery's at the end of his tether.

In regards to narration, excellent job from Ray, there's some moments in here that I would not be happy reading aloud haha, because they're just cringe worthy, he does a fab job of sticking to character, and totally is entertaining with his different voices.

I am looking forward to what happens next, will they catch Sheridon and make it to the Atomic Sea.... but I'll have to wait till I'm in work again haha. I am defo an audio book covert.
