206 posts | 124 read | 186 to read
The voyage of the Atargatis set off on a journey to the Mariana Trench to film a 'mockumentary' bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. She was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others 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. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart, this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost. Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found beneath the waves. But the secrets of the deep come with a price . . . New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant takes us on a journey into the unknown in this gripping stand-alone novel in which myths come to life.

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book. I couldn't tell if it was going to be more of a fantasy or more of a horror/thriller. I soon found out that it was definitely a horror/thriller. Being someone who loves creature features, I was immediately hooked. Reminding me a bit of Jaws, Anaconda (with J Lo!), Lake Placid, Deep Blue Sea, Piranha 3D, and the Meg, I really enjoyed this book.

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant is a heart-pounding, spine-tingling tale of horror set in a remote area of the sea far beyond the reach of fast-acting rescue. This book is one of those rare finds that is just so wonderfully written and perfectly horrific that I want to shout about it from the rooftops to make sure horror fans go out and snag a copy immediately.

4/5⭐ Oooh, yes this is exactly the type of horror I enjoy: a combo of creepy, smart, and dangerous. The author balanced science, plot, horror, characters, and relationships really well. The bouncing around from POV to POV was almost too much but didn't detract from my overall enjoyment. The representation as far as neurodiversity, sexuality, and race/ethnicity was refreshing. Definitely recommended. #bookemon

I started off loving this and eventually, I couldn't wait for it to end. The story was original and well written but got bogged down with detail. It was WAY too long and I felt it was very repetitive. The ending felt rushed, there was all this build up and then it was over so quickly. Also, the little bit of romance felt forced and in my opinion was totally unnecessary.

The premise was fun and I really enjoyed the first half, but it got very repetitive to me. Most of the characters kept making dumb decisions based on hubris (a particular pet peeve of mine) and the resolution was super rushed. Plus, it bugged me that so many conservationist/scientist characters were like "KILL AN ENTIRE SPECIES FOR REVENGE!!!!"

I quit GoT several seasons ago so while all of y'all are freaking out about the last season, I'll be over here enjoying this book about killer mermaids
#funfact I got married in an aquarium and now I have a ton of octopus decor.

KatieDid927 I quit too! Solidarity! ✊🏼 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @KatieDid927 right on! My friends were thinking of having a deadpool for this season and were shocked when I said I stopped watching. 3mo
jpmcwisemorgan I watched the first season and maybe one or two episodes of season two, and then one or two random episodes. I even tried to read the books - my brother thought I‘d like them and he‘s usually right. I just sort of follow along on social media. I‘m following someone‘s live Tweeting for this episode. That‘s all I can do. 3mo

WhatWouldJaneDo @jpmcwisemorgan my husband has read the first four books and was really excited for the show. I tried to read the first one after the first season of the show and didn't get very far, just wasn't into it. I just lost interest in keeping up with it between seasons (especially with the ever escalating violence--I can deal with that in a movie or novel but when you keep having to up the ante over that duration it gets pretty rough). 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @jpmcwisemorgan but I also still read recaps/spoilers out of morbid fascination since it is such a cultural phenomenon. 3mo
Sweetdgabe87 This book sounds amazing!!!! 3mo
jpmcwisemorgan I stoped watching The Walking Dead too. It‘s a lot to take in because it just keeps coming. So I just read spoilers! I‘m glad I‘m not the only one doing this for GoT. 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Sweetdgabe87 I'm really enjoying it so far! I'd picked it up when it was on sale and then it was recommended on a podcast I've been listening to so it seemed like a sign to finally read it. 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @jpmcwisemorgan I quit on Walking Dead a few seasons ago as well. It seemed like it wasn't about story anymore, just shock value! I think we're in good company 😁 3mo

Seanan McGuire's work (Mira Grant is a pseudonym of hers) has always been kind of hit or miss for me, but this one was definitely a hit. Killer mermaids! Scientists who are believably written! Scenes out of an unusually well-written monster movie! A romance between two women who don't die! Truly this book lives up to its promise.

I have to admit I am a little bit rooting for Jason to be eaten by mermaids. I mean, it has to happen to somebody else soon anyway, right?

This book is a lot of fun if the thought of killer sea creatures gives you a thrill. The descriptions and dialogue are a bit repetitive, but the number of women doing science and heroics and just existing more than made up for it. I enjoyed the narrator's performance too. #scifi #horror #mermaids

My final #ScreamsByMail book for #HorrorPostalBookClub Round 1! Truly enjoyed the mermaid killer theme with a strong scientific bent that can be tiresome on occasion, but the necropsy was pretty fascinating. A lot of cinematic scenes that I can easily imagine being made into either a tv series or a film. Will be sending this over to you tomorrow @kamoorephoto before I head off to Kuala Lumpur. 🧚🏼‍♀️📚
