I LOVE THIS BOOK. It reminds me of the best of Michael Crichton - Grounded in science just enough to be plausible, imaginative enough to stir my sense of wonder, and paced perfectly so that I only want to read this book and nothing else. This isn’t even the first book in the series, but even so, it was a fine point of entry for me. I haven’t been this impressed with a new author in a while, I was really blown away.
I feel as if this is the weakest entry in the series so far. The plot feels inorganic, and a certain Benthic behemoth's proportions find themselves greatly exaggerated. This being science fiction and written in a time of ignorance of the creature's size, I am willing to suspend disbelief forgive that.
What I can't look past are moments when the curtains are pulled back and the strings of deus ex machina are seen as character deaths are rail-roaded. It's almost at a George R. R. Martin level of Murphy's Law abuse. You have your characters who never die, and then you have those that were written specifically to be chum. The fact that I can clearly see who fits what spectrum is a sign that this novel should have gestated longer.
What began as an opportunity to showcase horrific creatures culminated into some throwaway (albeit terrifying) icthy's and a Liopleurodon whose grossly-miscalculated size removes the reader from the intrigue of the story. I would have liked to have seen more of this. Instead, we have a rat-trap of a plot filled with attempts at setting up a grim "Shadows of the Empire" ending to segway into a future novel. I preferred the "Die Hard" approach to Primal Waters' descents into ridiculousness.
If there's one thing that I did love about this book, it was that I was pleasantly surprised by Alten's ability to craft an ire-provoking villain, and in Hell's Aquarium, you get a villain for both the Tanaka Institute's and the Dubai Aquarium's.
Funnily enough, I'm more irked by Angel's death than anything in this book. Out of all the characters in the book, I put the most stake in her survival only to have her killed off cheaply in an offscreen twist. Just read the final scene and you'll be as confused as I was. A Megalodon's death grip somehow loosened by the pull of a super tanker? I mean maybe. I guess Alten just needed the money from that sequel. . .
