Return To The Deep by Michael Bray [4.5 stars]



From the Description:

Held in captivity for five years, the offspring of the creature which brought devastation to the oceans has existed in solitude as the government continue its attempts to genetically engineer without success.
Henry Rainwater has become a drunk and a recluse, a broken man plagued by guilt over the devastation caused by his quest for the creature which ultimately cost his friends their lives.
After a security breach necessitating moving the creature to a new facility is disrupted by a group of animal rights activists, the beast is set free into ocean, forcing those who vowed never to return to face their demons one last time, and for one man whose life was devastated by the first creature to formulate his lethal plan for revenge.
Unbeknownst to them all, flamboyant billionaire Charles Decker had designs of his own on the creature, and will stop at nothing to take it for his own needs no matter the cost, financial or otherwise.
As the creature decimates all that is set before it, unlikely alliances will be formed, trusts broken and lives risked as the individual groups seek to find the creature first for their own agenda, unaware that they will soon become the hunted rather than the hunters…

Usually sequels aren't as good as the original story, but with Return To The Deep Michael Bray has done it again. Created a super fun thrill ride that more than lives up to the expectations created by From The Deep. In this novel we get to catch up with some of my favorite characters and meet a few new ones. My Favorite was Ross Mackay, I really look forward to reading more about his adventures with Henry Rainwater! If you love creature features or just fun action/horror then grab this book! A solid 4.5 star read.
