Into the Drowning Deep Lib/E (Rolling in the Deep #2) (Compact Disc)
When most people think of mermaids, they think of long red hair, a talking crab, and clothing made from clamshells. While that’s a very comforting picture to paint of what lies beneath the surface of the ocean, Into the Drowning Deep is a far more realistic and terrifying portrayal of the deep sea. A scientific voyage to the Mariana Trench attempts to uncover the truth behind the legends of lost sailors and the monsters that took them under, and they end up finding exactly what they’re looking for. Imagine Ariel on meth with a mouth full of teeth and a ravenous appetite and that should give you a good idea of what to expect. Suffice to say, I won’t be swimming in the open ocean anytime soon.— David

“In Into the Drowning Deep, Mira Grant has conjured up scary mermaids living in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. An expedition sets out to learn if mermaids truly exist and to uncover the fate of a previous expedition. The new crew is being recorded for a documentary, with the hope it will prove mermaids are real and clear the network of wrongdoing. Both Tory, whose sister was killed on the first expedition, and Jillian, who has been teaching about mermaids for years, are going out on the state-of-the-art ship; however, that ship has one major flaw. You will not look at The Little Mermaid the same way again!”

New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant, author of the renowned Newsflesh series, takes us to a new world of ancient mysteries and mythological dangers come to life.
Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a mockumentary, bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.
Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they're not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life's work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart, this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.
Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the waves. But the secrets of the deep come with a price.
