Book Review: Breakthrough by Michael C. Grumley
Recommended: When science, fiction and nature collide
A great tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It weaves between science fiction and reality in such an ingenious way that it is all taken in stride as believable. Whether you are most interested in marine biology and inter-species communications, enjoy a bit of naval action or even want to dapple in science fiction and extraterrestrial humans, this story has it all.
The main characters, John Clay, an honorable and chivalrous naval investigator, and Alison Shaw, a strong-willed biologist watching out for her beloved dolphins, work at times against and at times together in solving the mystery of the secret object discovered on the ocean floor. Ultimately, the world depends on this duo.
The scenes move quickly and the story flows without interruption. There are many characters but they are introduced in unique settings which helps keep them straight. The writing is simple and easy to follow. Some of the characters and plot developments were a bit predictable, which is the only thing bringing this rating to a four star, in my option.
But overall, by the end of the story, you will find yourself eagerly downloading the next book in the series.
