John Bandicut and his company have been rewarded for their heroism in saving Shipworld. The prize: to be flung back into inhabited space—not to their home planets, as they had hoped, but to the bottom of an alien sea. Helpless and sinking, they are rescued by strange mer-creatures and brought to an undersea city, where a race of sea-people known as the Neri live in perpetual twilight. The Neri are well adapted to their world, but their survival is in jeopardy. They face danger from a warlike surface people called the landers, from a failure of their irreplaceable deep-sea factories, and from a terrifyingly powerful entity called the Maw, stirring to life in the abyss beneath their cities.

Was the company brought here to help the Neri, as alien powers once came to the aid of Earth? What help could they, or perhaps their translator-stones, offer these imperiled sea-folk? For Bandicut, the discovery of the true nature of Maw of the Abyss is the beginning—but only the beginning—of an answer.

This undersea chapter of the immensely popular Chaos Chronicles is not to be missed! Another interstellar adventure from a master of the craft, Jeffrey A. Carver.

Synopsis Since John Bandicut saved Earth from collision with a comet in Neptune Crossing and saved Shipworld from the boojum of Strange Attractors, his life has become one confrontation with chaos after another. No sooner has he survived a harrowing escape from Shipworld than he and his eclectic band of aliens find themselves struggling to survive beneath the waves of a distant ocean world. They quickly discover they are not alone. A race of deep-sea humanoid amphibians, the Neri, are in trouble of their own. Long under attack by beings from the surface, they now face an even greater peril from the seafloor depths, a powerful force known as the Maw of the Abyss. If Bandicut cannot solve the riddle of the Maw, the Neri's beleaguered world will die. And Bandicut and his friends will die with it. This book is a great continuation to an already joyful read. The inclusion of a new companion and a few suprises make this a great 3rd book and wonderful lead into Sunborn, the latest book in the Chaos Chronicles. These books should fullfill any Sci-Fi fan. They are wonderfully written with a bit of humor and a lot of Wit!

Notably better than the two predecessors. Not without a few minor quirks of it's own - the female alien is particularly cringe worthy, and even worse predictably so. Meanwhile the interludes to John's ex-lover are unexplained, particularly as nothign comes of them. The 'voice' jumps about a bit more through several characters. However the plot is centred on just one location, which makes it directer and more action centred.

I started with 'Neptune Crossing' and have not been able to stop experiencing these wonderful characters and stories.
