THE SAURIAN WAR RAGES ON Unaware of the brutal battle that has just taken place between Ursula, the giant Megalodon shark, and the macropliosaur designated Typhon, Dr. Derek "Dirk" Braddock seizes upon his mentor Eric Grayson's absence and launches a dual-pronged mission into Earth's bloodstained seas. His brother Garm, commanding the anti-biologic submarine Gryphon, is assigned the dubious task of hunting down and exterminating Typhon. Meanwhile, Natalya Dragunova, captain of the Antrodemus, prepares to penetrate the perilous waters of Diablo Caldera – the Cretaceous-era lake from which the savage pliosaurs originated. Neither of them has any idea what is waiting for them. Soon, Dirk's investigation into his mother's untimely death uncovers a shocking truth: one that, when revealed, will shake the research facility known as Tartarus, and his world, to the core. Malevolent forces are at work that Dirk is unaware of, and he soon finds himself fighting not only for his life, but the lives of everyone he loves. Meanwhile, lurking in the darkness of Tartarus's abyssal depths, the ultimate horror awaits . . .

KRONOS RISING: KRAKEN (volume 2 of 3) based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Again, veteran award-winning author and Master of Marine Terror, Max Hawthorne pens the perfectly crafted blockbuster, taking his readers on the thrill ride of their lives! To say that 'Kronos Rising: Kraken (Volume 2) is a 'page turner' is an understatement! Equally rivaling the likes of Crichton's 'Jurassic World', Benchley's 'Jaws' and Alten's 'MEG' book and movie franchises, 'Kraken V2' truly earns its proverbial place on the shelf!Hawthorne is, indeed, a deserving member of that celebrated group of storytellers, and Hollywood film producers will, no doubt, SOON be all over HIS literary franchise! Hawthorne's 'Kraken V2' reads like a bullet train thrill ride from the first gripping page and takes you hostage until the explosive end! Hawthorne's original characters possess the dimension and sparkle, deserving of a cast of Hollywood's top A-list stars to bring them to life on the big screen! It's brilliant storytelling and THE way a story should be told!
Finished reading it in two days. The Prince of Paleo-fiction has done it again with his latest novel in the Kronos Rising series. This book has a lot of surprises that I did not see coming. It brought sadness and non-stop edge of my seat drama! I cannot wait for book #3. BRAVO MAX......BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!
Max has done it again! Just when you think you know what's going to happen next you find out you have had no idea at all this entire time. This book has so many twists and turns its hard to not finish it in one setting. It keeps you absolutely pulled in and glued to your seat you can't help but tear through it dying to know what is going to happen on the next page. The old monsters are in those pages and some new ones as well, both human and not. This is Max's best work yet I am highly recommending anyone that loves this series or books like these to read it, I promise you will not be disappointed at all. Hail to the Prince of Paleo fiction for giving us another 5 star book it deserves 10 stars and 2 thumbs up! It is absolutely amazing!
