Here's the thing, I'm an unabashed Greig Beck fan. I love his writing style, and his original works are truly amazing reads.
My gripe with this novel is that it isn't all that different from his Center of the Earth and Primordia series. He's a bit too into Verne at the moment, IMO, and it's affecting his storytelling. The innovation and imagination of his other works are lacking in this book.
The book is well written. This isn't a knock on his talents, but just a statement that we're in a rut as far as storytelling goes. Need to shift away from hidden worlds and back to his strengths of cryptozoological mysteries, myths, and legends.
