Book Review: Blood Tide by Brian Burt #WWVBT
As most of you know, I’m not a huge science fiction fan. However, I have recently found myself reading more and more science fiction and this book is a shining example of why – it’s interesting! I’ve been sucked into this book and just find myself turning page after page.
This book actually takes place under the surface of the sea as an underwater world, as opposed to space. In this book, the underwater world is actually trying to repair itself after the destruction in the first book. It is easier to read than many science fiction books because there are small familiarities which tie us as humanity into the book: internet and the memories of humanities past presence.
The main character is Megalops, a dolphin-human hybrid, is so plagued by what happened to his wife and daughter that he loses all sense of ‘humanity’ and releases a virus just as deadly as the one that turned his loved ones to stone on the Juno water tower. This results in a species on species war which is wrought with suspenseful twists and turns.
Ocypode makes a reappearance from book 1, and it’s interesting to read on and find out how it’s really going to go with our hero Ocypode back in the midst of things.
This is a really good book and I would recommend it for adults who enjoy reading Sci-fi. I must suggest that you read the first book, and then the second. In the first book, it lays out much of the thoughts and emotions involved in this cataclysm and the horrors felt during a time of genocide. In the second book, it is more of a continuation of revenge and although easy to empathize, you don’t truly get the full effect of the heartbreaking emotional pain which is the driving force behind this book.
