Product description

Product Description

First came Chernobyl, the nuclear power station that contaminated most of Europe. Then Fukushima, pounded into radioactive rubble by a tsunami. And now … Broome?
In northwest Australia a nuclear-waste plant is opening. A boat with a glowing cargo is adrift. A cyclone called Cyril is about to hit. And everyone is lying.

I loved this book. Although it's a thriller and I don't usually do thrillers, it's a clever story about thoughtful, caring people from different backgrounds (there's even a love story or two woven into it) thrown into an unexpectedly terrifying and violent political situation, and how they deal with it with humor and ingenuity. It's set a little way into the future in north-western Australia. The amazing colors and culture of Broome and its surroundings are really well portrayed. I learned a lot. I would like to go there! This book would make a great movie I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and full of heart 17 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Took me a couple of days to get into it, but hit the halfway point and could. not. put. it. down. Great read. Sort of this weird mix of thriller style action, contrasted really strongly with the down to earth Australian thing.

The author also wrote a non-fiction book called Redbill about Australia's maritime history in that region and you get the feeling that all
the colours and textures in Atomic Sea are very carefully and truthfully painted from her first-hand knowledge of the area.

Also, the protagonist is female and in her forties - she's not James Bond, not bullet-proof. Completely relatable. And in a world where there's a lot of men with a lot of guns, it was a perspective that I found pretty enjoyable!

Giving this five stars. The author has a strikingly clear voice - railing hard against jingoism and the insanity of human destruction - and it should
definitely be heard. Also the quoll thing reminded me of the Northern Lights daemons - just beautiful :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Atomic Sea is a novel I loved from start to finish 10 April 2017
By Jay Row - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A surprisingly action-packed and thought provoking look into the near future, Atomic Sea is a novel I loved from start to finish. An absolute page turner, CM Lance expertly contrasts the beauty of Broome and its locals with the cold, uncaring ugliness of those that would harm it. With so many twists and turns one could be fooled into thinking this is a straight up action thriller (and it certainly feels like it is in some parts - in a great way), but what sets Atomic Sea apart from others is the wonderful beating heart of its delightful, intelligent cast of characters who must face very relate-able and human challenges amidst all the carnage around them. From letting go, learning to trust and overcoming old wounds amid the terrifying shadow of a radioactive disaster that feels much more tangible and dangerous in our post-Fukushima world, it is impossible not to be swept up alongside our cast as they struggle to save not only themselves and those around them, but also the beautiful countryside itself.

Smart, thrilling and romantic, I devoured this epic a single and very enjoyable day. Highly recommended.
