Product Description

THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE WATER. . .

After his brother's mysterious disappearance, Patrick Russell is told it was a routine drowning. But he feels something much more terrifying is at work.

A BEAST WITH A LUST FOR KILLING . . .

He believes that a rogue creature has risen from the depths and is terrorizing the local beach community. In order to protect the tourist dollars flooding in, the city's politicians and business leaders are unwilling to acknowledge the creature's existence; leaving Patrick as the sole voice of reason as the bodies pile up.

ONLY ONE MAN CAN STOP IT . . .

Risking his life and his sanity, he sets out to uncover a monster that knows neither fear nor compassion, and that has developed a taste for killing . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book July 27 2011
By L D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
PERFECT book for summer. It was a quick read with action from the first page to the last page. I wouldn't say this is a work of Dostoyevsky, but if you want action and an enormous squid eating people and attacking boats, this is the book for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars The second best squid book (there are only two...) May 2 2012
By pepak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I am crazy into giant squids and giant octopuses and generally anything big with tentacles, I just had to buy this book - no matter how good or bad, there are so few of them (well, I only know of Peter Benchley's Beast) that there really is no choice. Unfortunately, Sea Creature is poor. Story-wise, it has everything one would expect in a giant squid book, but it just doesn't compare to Benchley's book. I can think of two comparisons:

1) Sea Creature is to Beast as Shark Swarm (or any other of the 10-15 recent Asylum and/or SyFy Channel shark movies) to Jaws - a lot of action, a lot of blood, but little real substance. As far as squid realia is concerned, it feels very much like Methos watched the horrible The Beast TV adaptation and derived all his "facts" from that. Although even the miniseries didn't go as far as the squid snatching unsuspecting people from dry land.

2) The book is VERY reminiscent of these low-cost abysmal-quality shark movies, by the way. In many aspects: The storyline pretty much leaps here and there so that there is plenty of action, but quickly abandons each setting for a new one (e.g. the Hero and His Girl get abducted by villains, but ten pages later, all is solved; the Hero develops a major enemy, and five pages later all is solved; a Friend betrays the Hero, and, guess what, ten pages later all is solved). The author tried to overcome the shallowness of the plots and subplots by graphic gore (and don't get me wrong, I *like* pointless over-the-top gore), but it just doesn't work in a book, just like 20 liters of red bubbling water doesn't work in the cheap shark flicks. Basically, if someone told me that Sea Creature is a script for a soon-to-be-released SyFy movie, I wouldn't doubt that for a minute.

To technical matters: The book is self-published. Methos seemed very happy about this development in book-publishing industry, but I am afraid I can't share his enthusiasm. Plot loopholes aside, but Sea Creature apparently wasn't read by ANYONE, including the author, before being published. The punctuation seems random, grammar is atrocious, incorrect verb forms and incorrect words are the standard, not the deviation, character names tend to get mixed every few chapters etc. etc. (and this in the paper book). Even if the publishers are vampires who suck both the authors and the readers dry, I am all for giving them some blood if it means next time I will buy a finished product with the most obvious errors fixed.

Overall, I am very disappointed by this book, and I am not giving it a one star rating only because I have read even worse. I need to read Beast again now, to get the aftertaste of Sea Creature from my mouth.

5.0 out of 5 stars now this is what i'm talking about! Aug. 4 2011
By starwarsfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i absolutely loved this book! if you enjoy the old type creature stories, this book is for you. it was like sitting at the drive-in movie for one of those old b movies. i did have a couple of problems with the book, but as you can tell by my 5-star rating, they weren't enough to spoil the book for me. at a third of the way through the book, the author got his characters mixed up. he had patrick in two places at the same time and christopher left out. i had to re-read the page a second time to figure out what had happened, but no big deal. also, i didn't like the scene with christopher and the boy and i didn't think it added anything to the story for the disgusting predilection of hamilton. i felt those two things were just added for shock value and they were useless beyond that. that being said, i sincerely hope this author brings us more like this. a sequel, perhaps? loved this book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impresses Feb. 1 2012
By Janeyl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really can not recommend this book. It frankly was terrible. It was not edited at all. There were spelling errors, grammatical errors, no plot line, no character development, no continuity at all . I always finish books I start, and love creature fiction. it was impossible to get more than 2/3 of the way through this novel. Even at this price, not worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story Poor Editing Oct. 17 2011
By Dave Avis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Victor Methos has another great creature feature here. He develops his characters nicely and weaves a main story and sub stories. It is a good read for us creature type fans.
Someone really needs to edit the story. There are many misuses of words, poor grammar, and when you're least expecting it, a poor sentence structure makes you go back and reread the line again.
I've never heard a squid's tentacle called a leg.
It's a good story tho and I'd recommend it to any fan of creature features.
