My top three favorites in this collection are:
The Ocean Provides; by David Rider. This relatable tale tells of a father’s unending devotion to his son and the ocean. His anguish at his young son’s brain tumor and unknowing fate is evident, and I truly disliked the mother character. The MC is likeable and believable and I loved that the author made orcas part of the story too.
By the Sounding Sea by Scotty Milder. I just loved this one because the premise is so totally wacky! Horrifying but wacky! 6 friends find themselves stranded on a deserted island where creatures made to look like their fantasies/imaginations take them into the ocean one by one, I mean, Angelina Jolie from Beowulf?? You gotta love that!
Pressurized by Andrew Hughes. The one shark story in this collection kept me on the edge of my seat. I have a terrifying but fascinating obsession with sharks so I really loved this one. It reads quickly and is very tense. I found myself rooting hard for Carmelo to make it. You will have to read the story to find out if he did!
All in all, I was completely blown away by ALL of the writers who submitted to this collection. I can’t wait for the next one!
