Overview

May those who curse days, curse that day

Those who are ready to rouse


LEVIATHAN

Kept hidden from mankind forever, it is about to surface.

'When it rises up, the mighty are terrified.'

After a rash of violent attacks throughout the Caribbean, marine biologist Kelly Andrews captures evidence of an unidentified predator species in the Atlantic. Something unknown to science, something altogether new . . . or else something very old.

'It makes the depths churn like a boiling cauldron and stirs up the sea.'

Billionaire Oscar Wright learns of the sea monster’s existence, which he considers to be the Biblical Leviathan. Driven mad by grief, the old man devotes his vast fortune to kill the beast for a personal vendetta and harvest its hide as the ultimate trophy.

'Nothing on earth is its equal -- a creature without fear.'

Two separate expeditions race across the ocean to find the animal. And when it’s finally located, one thing becomes clear: humanity no longer tops the food chain.

Leviathan by Jared Sandman is a thrilling novel. The main setting of this novel takes place in the Atlantic Ocean. This is where the mysterious creature with a voracious appetite lurks in the water. Two people are out searching for this mysterious creature for very different reasons. The hunt is on but who is hunting whom? Leviathan has some very interesting characters in it. Oscar Wright is a multi-millionaire searching for the Leviathan. He believes the Leviathan is the same creature mentioned in the book of Job. Oscar would like nothing better than murdering the creature to smite God. He is out for vengeance and he won't let anything get in his way. Oscar is a cantankerous human being. The only person he seems to care about is himself. He does not hesitate to manipulate and sabotage Kelly Andrews. Kelly Andrews is a scientist. She's searching for the sea creature not to destroy it but to study it. Kelly makes some pretty risky choices along the way. She's willing to take the chance to get close to the sea monster. I like Kelly's character. She frustrated me at times with the crazy choices she made. She's driven by passion and like Oscar she's not going to let anything get in her way. In a way Kelly and Oscar's characters mirror each other. They are in a cut throat competition to get to the creature first. I would also consider the Leviathan a character in this novel. The Leviathan is as mysterious as the ocean it lives in. There are many questions that surround this creature such as: Why is it here? Where did it come from? Is it going to eat me? The Leviathan seems to be an intelligent animal that is at the top of the food chain. Jared Sandman did a great job with making the Leviathan as realistic as possible. The storyline in this book is a whirlwind of suspense. It has some exciting, action packed scenes. I really enjoyed reading Leviathan. I found myself lost in this race to capture this unique creature. This is definitely what I would consider to be a page turner. Jared Sandman does a great job describing each scene to make you feel like you're part of the book. If you like action and adventure with a bit of science fiction thrown in, I would recommend this book. The next time I go to the beach I'm going to try not to think about the Leviathan. This book is fiction but still, you never know what's out there.

I am not good at writing reviews. So, I will say this was a very good book. Excellent story line and lots of suspense. It kept my interest! I read half of it the first day.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read. I could spend the next hour going point by point on what was wrong with it, but instead I will just say save your money. The characters are cardboard thin clichés, his basic research on weapons and capabilities was nonexistent, and his plot was weak and predictable. This a bad read and a waste of time.
