Into the Drowning Deep
Into the Drowning Deep | Mira Grant
The voyage of the Atargatis set off on a journey to the Mariana Trench to film a 'mockumentary' bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. She was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others a maritime tragedy. Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they're not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life's work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart, this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost. Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found beneath the waves. But the secrets of the deep come with a price . . . New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant takes us on a journey into the unknown in this gripping stand-alone novel in which myths come to life.

Tons and tons of fun!

I really enjoyed the original Newsflesh trilogy, but couldn‘t get into Parasite at all. This seems like a return to form for Grant complete with a spirited cast of protagonists, side characters and oddballs and an excellent take on the monster attack at sea genre.

Given the ending, I suspect a sequel will happen but Grant/McGuire has so many series going at this point, it may be a while! That‘s okay, I‘ll keep busy!

Exbrarian Newsflesh is one of my all-time favorite series. Parasite, I finished the first book, but not the second. I have just started Into The Drowning Deep and I am enjoying it so far. 2w

Did you ever think to yourself, 'I want a action-packed-monster-thriller filled with political & corporate intrigue, kind of like Feed but with deadly MERMAIDS instead of zombies!'? No of course you didn't, because that's just plain banana-pants! However Mira Grant (aka Seanin McGuire) KNOWS what you really want, even though you don't - and what you want is terrifying killer MERMAIDS of the SEA! Only 1/3 through and this is cracking-good!

Interesting plot and characters but the pacing was so slow that by the time things started happening I had lost interest. Didnt feel the suspense and dread I anticipated and associate with this genre.

A ship is lost at sea while filming a mockumentary about the lovely ladies of the sea at the Mariana Trench. Years later, the film company sends another crew in the hopes of proving that the terrifying footage from the first trip was not a hoax and mermaids are real.

Action-packed and gory. You will never think of mermaids the same way again.

A solid 4.5/5 for me. The remaining .5 is from getting some science wrong (not anything that can be speculated) and taking forever to get to the monstrous mermaids.

Really enjoyed it and I really appreciate Ms. Grants attempt to flesh out some of the life history of the #mermaids And her attempt at explaining the pressure change.

i was immediately intrigued by this premise and Ms. Grant (aka Seanan Macguire) packs a ton of plausible science into this SF, extrapolating it all into some truly terrifying and fascinating creatures and ideas. BUT i found that i had to slow down too often to read exposition or abt internal motives etc. of a character i didn‘t care abt/for.

I enjoyed this one a way lot more than Feed! I still think Grant writes her human relationships in an off-putting way but I found the story so interesting that I was able to flow through the story quickly. It helps that I found the characters to be more interesting. I hope more stories are told in this world. I‘d love more recommendations about monsters in the sea.

I read like 80-85% romance. The rest is a general mix.

Because of this I am NOT at all prepared to handle deaths of people I like and connect with.

Ever have one of those introvert days where you can‘t be bothered to socialize? I‘m having one of those and of course, we‘re having a day long office meeting. I‘m hiding in my office until the last possible second. This book ain‘t bad so far. I like it a lot more than Feed.

This is one of the best horror/ sci fi books I've read recently because not only was the science behind it sound but the cast was diverse and intriguing. My only complaint for the audio is that the narrator could not pull off accents, but she was otherwise good. I will definitely be looking into more from this author.

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book. I couldn't tell if it was going to be more of a fantasy or more of a horror/thriller. I soon found out that it was definitely a horror/thriller. Being someone who loves creature features, I was immediately hooked. Reminding me a bit of Jaws, Anaconda (with J Lo!), Lake Placid, Deep Blue Sea, Piranha 3D, and the Meg, I really enjoyed this book.

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant is a heart-pounding, spine-tingling tale of horror set in a remote area of the sea far beyond the reach of fast-acting rescue. This book is one of those rare finds that is just so wonderfully written and perfectly horrific that I want to shout about it from the rooftops to make sure horror fans go out and snag a copy immediately.

4/5⭐ Oooh, yes this is exactly the type of horror I enjoy: a combo of creepy, smart, and dangerous. The author balanced science, plot, horror, characters, and relationships really well. The bouncing around from POV to POV was almost too much but didn't detract from my overall enjoyment. The representation as far as neurodiversity, sexuality, and race/ethnicity was refreshing. Definitely recommended. #bookemon

I started off loving this and eventually, I couldn't wait for it to end. The story was original and well written but got bogged down with detail. It was WAY too long and I felt it was very repetitive. The ending felt rushed, there was all this build up and then it was over so quickly. Also, the little bit of romance felt forced and in my opinion was totally unnecessary.

The premise was fun and I really enjoyed the first half, but it got very repetitive to me. Most of the characters kept making dumb decisions based on hubris (a particular pet peeve of mine) and the resolution was super rushed. Plus, it bugged me that so many conservationist/scientist characters were like "KILL AN ENTIRE SPECIES FOR REVENGE!!!!"

I tried to read the first one after the first season of the show and didn't get very far, just wasn't into it. I just lost interest in keeping up with it between seasons (especially with the ever escalating violence--I can deal with that in a movie or novel but when you keep having to up the ante over that duration it gets pretty rough). 7mo

Seanan McGuire's work (Mira Grant is a pseudonym of hers) has always been kind of hit or miss for me, but this one was definitely a hit. Killer mermaids! Scientists who are believably written! Scenes out of an unusually well-written monster movie! A romance between two women who don't die! Truly this book lives up to its promise.
