This novel was quite unlike anything I’ve read before. Cherie Priest quickly became one of my favorite authors with her Clockwork Century series. I breezed through Boneshaker, Clementine and Dreadnought, and loved them all. That said, this work by Priest is an entirely different beast from those novels. However, it is worth mentioning that it is still undeniably Priest. The styling is masterful, and her great skill at story-crafting makes the book an interesting and enjoyable read. Having always been a bit of a mythology geek, I very much liked the idea of the gods, goddesses, and the like. Crafting a story about these beings into one about Florida takes skill, and Priest manages it more than capably. One of my favorite things about this book is that, near the end, all of the many story threads and arcs come together to form a nice, neat close. As I reader, I enjoy the realizations of “oh, that’s why the that happened the way it did!” I would recommend this novel to readers who enjoy fantasy, particularly if they enjoy urban fantasy, dark fantasy, and a heaping dose of mythology.

Fathom is one of those books that starts right off the bat creepy. Priest's gift for putting you on edge is very evident in this book. I must have muttered ' Oh Oh' at least ten times in the first 50 pages of Fathom. A departure from the Eden Moore series, Priest's well honed story telling skills are top notch in Fathom..And seriously old gods, sea monters and witches...What's not to like?

Priest has reallly captured the lovecraftian universe in this wondetfully dark and terrifying book. I was seriously staying up way too late just to spend more time with this book! I love the way she uses the lovecraftian mythos to tie Fathom and Maplecroft together. Definately a must read for any fan of the lovecraftian universe!
