As someone who has fully bought into the fad of ghost hunting TV shows, the idea of a book about a crew lost at sea while filming a mockumentary felt right up my alley. I had no idea what I was in for with this book. It is so smart and prioritizes scientific study as a way to find and understand the creatures they seek. It is beautifully written as well as a pulse pounding thrill ride with a varied cast of characters and a story that never fails to surprise. If we are at the start of a new trend in the genre I’m not sure any book can top this one. If you like audio books, this one is stellar.— Kaitlyn

“In Into the Drowning Deep, Mira Grant has conjured up scary mermaids living in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. An expedition sets out to learn if mermaids truly exist and to uncover the fate of a previous expedition. The new crew is being recorded for a documentary, with the hope it will prove mermaids are real and clear the network of wrongdoing. Both Tory, whose sister was killed on the first expedition, and Jillian, who has been teaching about mermaids for years, are going out on the state-of-the-art ship; however, that ship has one major flaw. You will not look at The Little Mermaid the same way again!”
