Cate Granger’s grandfather disappeared before she was born. While exploring a cave in Alaska, he discovered local lore and myths were true, that the cave harbored prehistoric behemoths – giants of the ancient world long believed to be extinct. Think shark teeth ten inches long, sperm whales with a calf the size of a bus, or Volkswagen-sized snails, spiders, and other yukky beasts—Jules Verne-on-steroids stuff.
Cate’s explorations eventually involve a team of professionals, including a wealthy eccentric, and there are Russian bad guys, of course. The imaginative high-tech science of submarines, smaller submersibles, sophisticated research vessels, etc., all come into play through the three novels with good guys, bad guys, and creatures big enough to use an ocean liner as a toothpick.
No sex, no objectionable language – a bit grizzly at times, page-turning adventures. Narration is okay, nothing special. Production is fine but slow – had to bump the speed to 1.8 on the iPhone.
Written by Greig Beck, all novels are narrated by Sean Mangan and total over 40 of listening in unabridged audiobook format, released from 2016-23 by Bolinda Publishing.
