Frank Schätzing's amazing novel is a publishing phenomenon with translation rights sold around the world, drawing rave reviews for both pulsating suspense and great scientific knowledge.

The world begins to suffer an escalating and sensational series of natural disasters, and two marine biologists begin to develop a theory that the cause lies in the oceans, where an entity know as the Yrr has developed a massive network of single-cell organisms. It is wreaking havoc in order to prevent humankind from destroying the earth's ecological balance forever.

The Americans, under the ruthless General Judith Lee, take a more pragmatic approach than the scientists, seeking to wipe out the being of the deep.

The scene is set for a massive confrontation...

Review:

A suspense-packed ecological thriller (Financial Times)

This thriller is a space-ship bound for another world. (Die Zeit)

A rip-roaring monster movie of a plot with unexpectedly credible human characters (The Times)

An international blockbuster . . . But think twice about making it your beach book. However hot the vacation sun, this novel may give you the shivers . . . enjoy (Evening Standard)

Good fun, written in fluent thrillerese, and there are some vivid action-thriller moments (Metro)

An effervescent cocktail of adventure (Der Spiegel)

A gripping thriller starring nature unleashed (Stern)

A gigantic thriller (Die Welt)

'A massively good read. A gripping marine biodiversity thriller the like of which I have not seen since "Jaws". I particularly liked the portrayal of biologists as interesting, sexy human beings, rather than just evil or hopelessly mistaken gene-manipulators.' (Dr James Mallet, Professor of Biological Diversity, University College London)

A mind-bending, Crichton-esque fate-of-the-planet thriller that whiplashes the reader from micro- to macro-terrors faster than you can say 'ecosystem'... never ever predictable... enormously entertaining science fiction / horror epic... I recommend you dive right in (Fangoria)

Book Description:

More gripping than Crichton, classier than Cussler, Frank Schätzing's record-breaking ecological thriller is now in paperback.
