This is a wonderful story. The characters remind me of folks I know and knew, relatives and friends, growing up in New Orleans. The ladies in this book are so real that I wanted to give them a hug or cry, or celebrate with them at different parts of the story. I think this book could easily be a movie of the week or an HBO original production. Great job J. J.!!!
This was the epitome of hard core sci-fi. It was unique and engaging - it was a space Odyssey, only underwater! There is so much that can be developed from this expansive story line... The development of a new race of human life below the waves... the re-establishment of human existence on the post-apocalyptic surface of the Earth... I can't wait to see what this author does next with with this intriguing world she's created!
