Everyone knows the story of the Titanic and her fatal maiden voyage that saw hundreds lose their lives in one single night. But what if that wasn't the whole story? What if the REAL truth behind Maritimes greatest ever tragedy had yet to be told?

That is the premise behind Horror author Catt Dahman's latest offering, that borrows its influence heavily from H.P.Lovecraft's famous Cthulhu Mythos to present a chilling, eerie and, dare I say it, terrifying spin on the story everyone only thought they knew before now....

The Titanic's maiden voyage was historically fraught with bad omens right from the get go. It's a fact that several passengers really did decide to disembark before the ship had even had a chance to set sail due to startling visions and horrific dreams they experienced that foretold some kind of disaster, and Catt uses this to her distinct advantage. Shortly after setting off, the crew of the Titanic experience a strange yellow mist that seems to spring up from nowhere and when the ship does eventually hit the infamous iceberg, it is only the beginning of all of their problems. Somehow the Titanic has managed to cross over from our realm into another and,as she proceeds to slowly sink beneath the waves, all manner of twisted and nightmarish beasties begin stalking the passageways seeking to feast on the passengers and crew.

And even when they manage to get off the ship, still danger awaits....for waiting in the icy seas beyond lies a deadly, prehistoric Megaladon shark - ready to feed on all those who try and escape!

This is a truly great and original horror novel written in a classic and Gothic style that Miss Dahman completely succeeds here in making her own.

Not bad. a bit weird to begin with but in keeping some of the known and accepted facts in a ficticious retelling you'll want to read it to the end.

Not your average Titanic story! 18 Jun 2013
By Denise Keef - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story of the sinking of the Titanic has been told hundreds of times since it sank on April 15, 1912 and I have always loved reading the stories I come across. Titanic:QED is a totally unexpected story of what happened that fateful night. Ms. Dahman has told a tale that is terror filled with the passengers not only coping with the sinking of the ship but also with creatures right out of a nightmare. I loved the details that were put into this story from the who's who of the rich and famous on board to the most extravagant meal served at the Captain's table that night. The descriptions of the rooms, dining area...the Grand staircase...were so detailed it was like watching a movie in my head. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading anything about the Titanic and who also likes a good scarey story that will make you think about taking a cruise way out on the ocean!

This is a truly great and original horror novel written in a classic and Gothic style that Miss Dahman completely succeeds here in making her own. Catt has done a wonderful job of channeling Lovecraft in her writing and it is difficult to doubt that if the author were still around today, he would not be more than impressed by everything she has managed to achieve. The Cthulhu Mythos has been more than overly represented in numerous works of fiction in the past, almost to the point of pure saturation, and yet Dahman's latest novel is among one of the best tributes to the late H.P.Lovecraft that I have ever read!

A little twist in the tale, which I am not going to say any more about, only serves to complete this novel and proves that once again Miss Dahman has managed to surpass herself. It is difficult to criticize that which deserves no criticism and with this book, Dahman once again establishes herself as a veritable tour-de-force in the Indie Horror market. I want to say that this is her best book yet but then I seem to say that about each new book she presents of late.

As it is, can I just say that if you love Catt Dahman then you are really going to love this as it as unlike anything else she has ever written as it is brilliantly and perfectly conceived!

Can she top this? I don't even know anymore but what I do know is that this is a book that will haunt me for a long time to come.....

Not my cup of tea- but a hearty brew nonetheless 27 Aug 2013
By Carole P. Roman - Published on Amazon.com

I thought the plot of "Jaws" meets "Titanic" a great idea and loved the premise. I was not ready for the all out horror and sci fi aspects of the book. I have to be fair and say it's not my usual genre. That being said, I think the author gave a very respectful and lovely account of the passengers and the doomed ship. Written in almost a period style- I don't know Lovelace, but I understood right away she was writing in a style of the early 20th century and I applaud her talent. I wished that she could have picked one horror aspect over the other. I don't want to give things away, but either one would have been enough to do the damage she needed for the plot. I agree with the other reviewer's comment about the "scooby doo" scene and thought the book was going in a much better direction until then. The Maggie Brown lifeboat episode was the best part of the book and alone made a terrific story. Here her character development shined. Interesting idea, but to me just a bit cluttered. Loved what Catt was actually implied- what truths do we really know about anything? Who decided reality and where is the truth? I will read more books by her. I think it would make a great Twilight Zone episode.

Great story! 12 May 2013
By Sherman Oakes - Published on Amazon.com

Well, I guess I don't have to worry about spoilers, now. It's all pretty much right there in the book description.

I really enjoy the tale Catt tells in this one. The previous short story collection I read from this author harkens back to the past, so this story was the perfect match for her. The use of H.P. Lovecraft as a character is brilliant. It's never specified until the last page that Howard Philips is Lovecraft, but astute readers will pick up on this a lot sooner. It's very much a part of the Cthulu mythos, and by the time you're two-thirds into it, that becomes apparent. It's a great homage to a phenomenal writer and story-teller.

Although he wasn't actually on the Titanic (thankfully!), many of the other characters actually were. None of them stand out nearly as much, to me, as Maggie Brown, the plucky heroine of the story.

In fact, it's a sort of feminist piece, in part. The men, on the whole, behave admirably, as you would expect men from that era to act. Of course, not all do. A crisis can bring out the worst in us. But it's the women who stand out to me, as they are acting, not out of character as such, but beyond their ordinary station in life for that time period. You can also tell that a lot of research went into writing this.

Where Catt really shines is in writing horror, and that is here in spades. There's plenty of opportunity for it in this book. It really is a lot more than a mere Titanic/shark story. It succeeds as a literary mash-up of sorts. In fact, it's sort of a meta-prequel, in that it is a prelude to Lovecraft's entire writing career. That's an amazing and exciting accomplishment.

I'm dinging her a single star from my rating, but only to push the author toward further greatness. I realize it's a matter of taste and stylistic differences, but I'd have enjoyed the story more if the narration used contractions, for example. It doesn't really take away from the tale itself, though, and I recommend this book to fans of horror and the sea, and H.P. Lovecraft fans in particular.
