Overview

30 years have passed since the destruction of Paradise Cove. Since then, pliosaurs the size of whales have wreaked havoc on the world's oceans. Despite tragic losses, Garm Braddock and his brother Dirk wage a bloody war of attrition against the voracious marine reptiles: Garm from the helm of the anti-biologic submarine Gryphon and his brother from the top-secret military research facility known as Tartarus.

In spite of ongoing attempts to destroy them, the prehistoric predators that rose from the ashes of Diablo Caldera continue to multiply. They are bringers of death, and via more than just their deadly jaws. Their blood contains a primeval pathogen so virulent that, left unchecked, could spell the end of mammalian life.

Meanwhile, in the icy darkness of the deep, an evil as ancient as the dinosaurs stirs in response to the changes in Earth's oceans. Rising hungrily to the surface, it brings with it an intellect as cold as the abyss and an irrepressible need to destroy and devour.

And conquer.

Editorial Reviews

Richard Reagan
Two years after KRONOS RISING, Max Hawthorne has returned with KRONOS RISING: KRAKEN, the hotly demanded sequel. While most authors would have played it safe and stuck to a formula emulating the successful elements of the first novel (think the "Meg" series), Hawthorne's vision is cast on a larger canvas. Hawthorne knows how to tell and pace a fine adventure tale, in the tradition of Robert E. Howard. Don't miss this wonderful addition to the Kronos Rising series!
Sean Markey
"Our first introduction to the Kraken is an unsettling one. Hawthorne's writing evokes a sense of awe and terror, tapping into a deeply-rooted and primal fear of the unknown. The Kraken possesses an otherworldly aura which is hard to describe, but it really makes your skin crawl. Hawthorne hasn't lost his penchant for crafting an exhilarating underwater battle, nor his ability to craft compelling characters that aren't even human."
Christopher Parker
Until today, the deepest, darkest depths of the ocean remained an impossible mystery. But no more – a violent earthquake has finally unleashed a wonderfully horrific secret waiting to eat you alive. From the opening scene of black market shark hunters invading forbidden waters, Kronos Rising sweeps you onto a surprising, wildly inventive, thrill ride. A fabulous debut by Max Hawthorne. Simply put, it's got teeth. Big ones!
Stan Pottinger
A word to the wise: if you bite your nails, you'd better wear oven mitts when reading Kronos Rising. It will drag you down to the depths of fear and take you back for a breath of air as fast as you can turn the pages. Readers beware: a new master of marine terror is in your bookstore, and his name is Max Hawthorne!
Doug Olander
"Max Hawthorne explores the sinister side of the dark abyssal world with a new kind of beast, one that makes white sharks and giant squid as threatening as guppies and tadpoles."

Kronos Rising: Kraken (Vol. 1): The battle for Earth's oceans has just begun. 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

2 years was a long time to wait but this instant classic was SO worth it. It was like Bladerunner meets Jurassic World, a peek into a warped future with seas ruled by monsters and humanity trying to stem the tide. And not. Great visuals and the characters were either so good or so horrible (in a good way) you couldn't help but bite your nails. Technology advances were utterly believable and the battle scenes had me on the verge of a heart attack. And the monsters? Forget Megalodon Tiamat rules! Can't wait for the second half to see what happens.

This story line is way out there in a good way. Some times a bit "technical " but I could get past that. It had some nail biter parts, and overall a good Science fiction book. My gripe is that just when the story is going really exciting, you turn the page to : "continued in part 2" There is no part 2. I tryed to find it and cant. So they leave you hanging. By the time part 2 is out, I'll have to re-read part 1 . I would have given more stars if there was a conclusion .
