Below by Ryan Lockwood is an adventurous, suspenseful thriller that introduces readers to many different aspects of ocean life and coastal living such as: boating, fishing, scuba diving, marine biology, and marine creatures. Move over Jaws, you now have some frightening competition. Readers often find themselves choosing a novel that will leave them "on the edge of their seat," so to speak, and not allow time for anything else but turning pages. Ryan Lockwood's Below offers readers a novel chock-full of many different elements, such as suspense, action, romance, and education. The author introduces characters that are gripping and credible to the not so science fiction story plot. With its scene breaks and twists, readers will find themselves intrigued by the unpredictable situations, happenstances, and characters within this riveting novel.

A cowboy scuba instructor from Colorado, a marine biologist scientist from Mexico, a sheriff from California, and a dirty old local pirate find themselves intertwined in the mysterious outbreaks of attacks by an unknown new monster lurking in the dark depths of the ocean they all have grown to love. Ryan Lockwood has created a new terror of the ocean horror story that will make readers think twice before taking a dive in the ocean at all, let alone at night when the monster lurks. This novel is incredibly addictive. Stopping to do anything but turn the pages is not an option. With its fascinating appeal, Below is a book that will make a reader's skin crawl and eyes squint closed as they read the exhilarating scenes. A book for all readers to read, enjoy, and fear its contents.
