    This novel is a potent mix of cosmic menace, human frailties and dark folklore Two stories take place along different timelines and intersect in a colossal ordeal The writing is masterful, and the reader is literally plunged into a black sea of dire possibilities While the situations encountered are those of nightmares, the characters are fully drawn and wholly relatable This is a captivating read from beginning to end.
