The Ocean King by Russ Watts is a deep sea thriller. Retired Navy SEAL Don O’Reilly is working as a security guard for The Wild Seas Park. He drinks to forget his past, living out his life in a tiny apartment, suffering through nightmares every night. But nothing, not even the best military training could prepare him for what he is about to face. An unknown creature is found, half dead, floating in the Pacific Ocean, close to some wreckage. Brought to the Wild Seas Park, the creature is enormous, with a mouth full of razor teeth. The owner of the park, Zola Bertoni, decides that she wants to make her fortune out of this creature but no one could predict the terrifying consequences of putting the Kaiju on show.
The Ocean King by Russ Watts was a stunning story, a book that might just make you wary of setting foot in the sea again. Jaws, Lake Placid, move over. The Ocean King is more terrifying than both of them put together. Loved the story and I found it to be exceedingly well written. The characters were believable and, dare I say it, so was the story – there really is no knowing what lives in the depths of the ocean and who knows, maybe there is a Kaiju down there somewhere! Excellent story, this was one book I did not want to put down until I had finished it. Looking forward to reading more from Mr. Watts in the future.
