Comments: The cover is beautifully rendered with lots of detail that make it worthwhile to pick up this book just for that alone. The colors are beautifully rendered and everything just works on this cover.
Clay Olsen is illustrated in a fast-paced race. It is thrilling. Yet a bit of a let down not to see his final race.
The base for the sub is an impressive set-up.
The people are drawn with pasty faces that need more focus. The closer up the shot the better the faces are drawn.
The other main characters are introduced. Dr. Audrey Howard the one who created the sub and the Co-Pilot Grant Roth.
Now there appears to be some sort of race to get the subs done and fighting ready. It looks as if the American’s will be facing off against the Russians. A mission to get intel and destroy does not go off so smoothly. The men Clay and Grant though are shown working good together as they become buddies.
This story seems to go back and forth with not enough focus on the direction of the story. So the Russian is selling the subs. Now the story is moving ahead smoothly as the American’s make ready to take on the other subs.
The story gets really hard to follow while the subs are under water and a battle is going on. The characters are fun as you get to know them better. You can identify with each one and you will end up caring about what happens to them.
The subs are designed nicely and do give this book a great underwater adventure feel. You are going underwater and you will find excitement beneath the waves.
