Fatal Depth Review at Shoreline of Infinity

New Review of Fatal Depth at Shoreline of Infinity

It’s hidden behind a paywall, but the magazine issue is for sale here.

Here’s a snippet from the review:

“Canadian author Timothy S. Johnston’s Fatal Depth, like many good science fiction thrillers, whisks the reader off to a unique setting … As Fatal Depth opens … a colossal submarine, larger and more powerful than anything built before, attacks and destroys the United States Submarine Fleet Headquarters, it poses a threat to other nations, both land- and ocean-based. In addition to its massive size, the sub is bristling with weaponry, including some new and heretofore unknown flourishes …

Truman develops a daring plan for attacking the enemy sub, and rallies support for the attempt. The book then takes us through a suspenseful campaign to see if Truman’s plans will come to fruition, and whether the alliance he has cobbled together will hold …

Those who have enjoyed The Rise of Oceania series to date will be happy to know that Johnston has Book Four, titled An Island of Light, in the works. In addition to The Rise of Oceania series, Johnston has also written three futuristic murder mysteries, titled The Furnace, The Freezer, and The Void.”
