Book Description

J.T. Cross, acclaimed author of the LOST VALLEY, returns with BENEATH THE DEEP, an epic underwater science thriller.

When Megan O’Brien, an archaeologist on a quest for a lost underwater civilization, and her treasure hunting partner, Matt Turner, rescue a disgraced physics professor, they stumble upon a man with a stunning scientific discovery—a location under the ocean where quantum physics fails. Joining forces with Sam DeCourcy, a wealthy undersea salvage expert, they form a crack exploration team to dive and drill beneath the ocean floor in the Bermuda Triangle.

Danger arises when a rival team aims to get there first and they’re armed with explosives and a plan that could kill them all. Now, racing against their competition, the explorers discover remnants of a mysterious lost civilization, and then, the game changer unfurls: evidence of an ancient intelligent species—and they are not happy to have company.

J.T. Cross weaves science fact with science fiction to create a believable, riveting epic adventure that will appeal to readers of Michael Crichton and fans of James Cameron's THE ABYSS.

**Acclaim for J.T. Cross**
“Pulse-pounding action, brilliant speculation, and the introduction of a lost world filled with horrors and wonders. J.T. Cross is a lot of writer.” ―J.R. Rain, #1 bestselling author of MOON DANCE and THE LOST ARK.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the other half of the book? 12 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase
The first thing to note is that the author doesn't write as if English is his first language. The language the characters use is very stilted and I doubt anyone in real life would talk like that. Also, some sentences read awkwardly, such as "The crewmen took off running toward to the rear of the ship" and there's one instance where a common expression is somewhat butchered - "Stay close to your friends and closer to your enemies".

That aside, the story is quite engrossing and therein lies the problem - nothing, absolutely nothing, is explained in this book.
Trying to avoid spoilers here but basically, the things they discover are described in detail but we finish the book none the wiser regarding literally everything they found. The books they find, the orb, the creatures, the civilization, the people who tried to shoe-in on the discovery (and where they went, they just suddenly disappeared), the main protagonist's condition (you learn relatively early that he is dying, but no info on this at the end and he's living life like he's fine).
I cannot stress enough that this LITERALLY reads like half a book. You can use your own imagination, for instance I'm sure the orb did something to certain people, etc. but I have around 40/50 unanswered questions and the entire storyline is not explained. I can appreciate leaving some bits for a sequel to explain, but not to this degree.
Metaphorically, it would be like a book on an alien invasion and describing the aliens in great detail, but just suddenly ending the book with "the aliens destroyed the world".

Would not read again, I technically have no idea what this book is about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea to start but awful ending 25 May 2014
By skip66

I like a bit of escapism and this book seemed promising. Sadly the author was just not up to the task of making the best of their ideas. I stayed with it but I have to say the ending could only be described as though a teenager was penning the story and was suddenly called down to have supper. It would be a little foolish to say a fantasy book lacked realism but there were just too many loose ends. Often that would be a good set up for a sequel but in this case I would not read a sequel even if it was free. This was really only worth two stars but as I say I did like the initial idea.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very very average. 3 Aug. 2015
By Neil H.
Characters are poorly detailed, ridiculous plot hole and over simplified writing. Really struggle to believe any serious reader would like this book. If you want an action adventure story read Wilbur Smith and see how it is done by a master. Oh, and the ending is rubbish, feels rushed and leaves many unanswered questions (not least, how did this book get published) Gave a 2 out of 5 as I did read it all but wish I hadn't and will certainly not be reading any more from this author. Avoid unless you are really bored (or maybe 9 years old and even then I would think hard about it)

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak Plot and Thin Characters 31 July 2014
By Andrew
Verified Purchase
Very weak. Characters lack depth, and a very thin plot that doesn't convince. Appears to be first of a series as several plot lines do not conclude, so I assume these will develop in a sequel. Many opportunities to develop the plot to satisfy reader curiosity are missed, and hence questions left unanswered. The science is poorly developed, and the villains predictable and hackneyed. The artifice of unfinished threads to link to a sequel is fine, but the reader is left knowing little more at the end than they did at the start. I kept wanting to find out more, but in vain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't think, just enjoy 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
I liked this book but when I stopped to think about it this feeling tended to slip. There was lots of action and a plot that kept pushing forwards but I would have liked the story to answer some of the questions that the story raised eg about the nature of the ancient civilisation, the reality behind the science and what was motivating the opposing sides. I normally prefer an action novel of the type that deals with such questions but I still enjoyed it.
