Blood Tide : Book Two of the Aquarius Rising Trilogy by Brian Burt #review
Posted by mindygrindstaff
Megalops is an Aquarian, a human-dolphin hybrid who lives in one of the many reef-cities that thrive beneath the waves on an Earth ravaged by climate change. Some of the Humans who cling to the barren lands blame Aquarius for their plight and unleashed the Medusa Plague that entombed Megalops’s wife and daughter in stone. Tormented by that loss, Megalops dedicates everything to avenging his murdered family, no matter what the cost. He unleashes a Vendetta Virus as cruel and lethal as the Medusa Plague, a bio-weapon that transforms living Humans into Aquarian corpses.Ocypode — one of the heroes who stopped the Medusa Plague — and his band of Human and Aquarian allies battle desperate odds to prevent Megalops from committing an act of genocide that will escalate into global conflict, dragging the Earth’s other humanoid species into the chaos. War demands sacrifice. If Mother Earth and Mother Ocean wage war against each other, will anyone survive?
Let me start by saying this book is definitely not a stand-alone to understand everything that’s going on and what has happened before you need to read book one. Book two Blood Tide picks up right on the heels of book one In the Tears of God. It’s a new day and a new battle. Megalops is out for revenge, because of the loss of his wife and child. He unleashes an outbreak that attacks the Earth’s surface and the ocean below. I loved that this book spent more time with Ocypode and Sapiensn. I really like their characters and I like that Ocypode once again involved in helping the Aquarian species. There were a few good twists in the book and the biggest one setup for a book number 3 which I hope is coming soon. Read this book if you like Sci-fi and action you won’t be disappointed I know I wasn’t.
