My success with Into the Drowning Deep led me to this novella and nominal preuel Sadly this feels like the Seanan McGuire I am familiar with the one with the uneven tone nominal characterization and tendency towards over telling With the Incryptid series Grant did a number of related short stories and novellas that ranged both in time and in tone from the relative frivolity of the full length books and I can see the similarities here This was most likely created before Into the Drowning Deep was a glimmer in someone s eye so the good news it that this would be an easy one to missIn this novella photojournalist Anne is a willing participant on Imagine Entertainment Network mockumentary expedition to discover mermaids Styled along the lines of the finding Bigfoot reality tv shows Imagine has a host of non scientific people aboard ready for filming as well as a handful of scientists to make it look legitimate They also aren t above stocking the boat haha with a troupe of eleven professional mermaids aka ladies with a fondness for neoprene tails and synchronized swimming You ll have everyone believing in mermaids in no time That s the idea said Anne That was the idea that would secure her a new contract with the network and keep her on the air for another yearThe first section has Anne and her cameraman Kevin interviewing people lurking around the boat etc and trying to get to know Team Mermaid without compromising everyone s non disclosure clause as apparently they weren t allowed to film the group until part way through the trip The captain of the ship is a woman and her first mate a deaf man so the sign language element is present A heavy handed Imagine representative is on hand once again providing the role of Character We Would Love to See EatenThe tone feels urban fantasy than horror with the ship s occupants treating it as easy money and generally suabbling when not doing research There are only six scientists along and thirty grad students so the reader is treated to a couple paragraph sketch on each as well as their specialties It isn t done particularly organically such in context of an interview or in meeting another scientist so its easy to see why some readers would find it hard to connect with the charactersThe plot is glacial for a horror story It isn t until the 50% mark that there is tentative confirmation that samples from a deep sea probe contain blood that comes from a creature unknown to science Until that point the crew has no idea that anything might be out of the ordinary That is very unusual pacing for horror and while The Blair Witch project might have made it work Into the Rolling Deep doesn t General spoiler it is literally 54% view spoilerbefore someone disappears hide spoiler

Rolling in the Deep

Roved even less and the kind of ratings that only came from peddling imaginary creatures to the massesThey didn't expect actual mermaids They certainly didn't expect those mermaids to have teethThis is the story of the Atargatis lost. Okay let s just go ahead and get it over with You know that thing that popped into your head as soon as you saw this title That thing that won t get out of your head until you give in to it Don t play coy with me You know exactly what I m talking about And you know what you have to do beltsGot that out of your system Good me too Now onto the review We may never know how much of the footage from the SS Atargatis was faked or how much of it was real What we do know is that none of the scientists crewmen or actors who set sail with the Atargatis were aboard when the ship was found adrift some six weeks later and none of them have resurfaced since Welcome to the tale of the SS Atargatis and her doomed crew This novella chronicles their voyage to the Marianna Trench where you guessed it they re searching for the source of the mermaid myth Their journey is part sensationalized documentary in the making and part research expedition so there s uite a cast of characters on board You have scientists interns TV personalities crew members and professional performers all rubbing elbows The tale is told in an interleaving fashion weaving the perspectives of those who perished with a TV special that aired after it was clear that something very bad happened to them The official record says that all hands were lost at sea We believe that something far worse occurred We believe that they were found Me from that point on OOFor a novella Grant did a wonderful job adding tension She also has a way of making you care about these characters in a short amount of time which is damn inconvenient since you know up front that they re all going to die I don t want to give too much else away so I ll just say that this little horror story is spooky riveting well written well researched and unputdownable I devoured it in one sitting Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest

At sea with all hands Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy Whatever the truth may be it will only be found below the bathypelagic zone in the Mariana Trenchand the depths are very good at keeping secret. OH MY GOD THAT WAS SO DAMN GOODWHY DID I WAIT THIS LONG TO READ THISRTC when I can stop reeling from how obsessed I am with this novella now
