    I'm stumped with this review. I'm a bit torn actually. I loved the first 50% of the story, then it got bumpy. I was hoping for something along the lines of Joe Ledger, but The Event Group was fairly ineffective. Besides the fact that some of the storyline was ridiculous, with tentacled/scaled/underwater pirates riding sea turtles, "that was easier to believe than the same pirates riding flying manta rays." I'd have bought it had there been some science behind it, even cheesy science would have w I'm stumped with this review. I'm a bit torn actually.

Besides the fact that some of the storyline was ridiculous, with tentacled/scaled/underwater pirates riding sea turtles, "that was easier to believe than the same pirates riding flying manta rays." I'd have bought it had there been some science behind it, even cheesy science would have worked." But no. Next thing you know I'm singing the sponge bob squarepants theme song! That's where the author lost me. Also, the wording was often off. I'd have to go back and read to figure out what was meant. I don't know if this was the author or editing. Probably both. I think that the worst thing for me was the ending. So many dead, and nothing was changed. Pointless really. I won't be reading the next in the series, or any of the previous books either. My thanks to Thomas Dunne/Macmillan and Netgalley for this e-arc.
