Review: Somewhere in the Shallow Sea: A Novel of Suspense

Somewhere in the Shallow Sea: A Novel of Suspense Somewhere in the Shallow Sea: A Novel of Suspense by Dennis Macaraeg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dennis Macaraeg, you pulled off a nice one!

I will begin with saying that I enjoyed this book. I won it as a Giveaway and this one did not disappoint me. Engaging and making your fingers snap page-after-page.

A scientist is kidnapped somewhere along the seas and thus the name.

The quest is well written and involves the romance of two forlorn-reuniting lovers :)

I love these kinds of stories with happy endings. So no problem with :

A. The Plot

B. Characters

C. Events

For a debut novel, this pretty much does a fair job. Although, I will say that Dennis' best work is not this but yet to arrive at the big stage.

He has shown great plot capturing and had me interested till the last page. I would have liked it better had there been a diversity in episodes with different characters the protagonist went to.

Put this apart, and this is one fab novel. You can place your money on it. To be fair to the author, this was not a mystery book but rather a thriller. So, don't expect the unexpected but live the various ups and downs that make-break a hostage situation!

I started my review by saying that I enjoyed this book, remember.

Well, for the entertaining and eye-catching description of Philippines, this one gets 3.5 +0.5 stars.

Verdict : A free-flowing thriller. You may will like it for sure.
