Product Description

An unearthed scientific secret will bring humanity to its knees.

Aboard a clandestine ship with unparalleled technology, Captain Dominic Holland commands a crew of skilled covert operatives and talented scientific personnel dedicated to fighting biological and chemical warfare. Their missions have taken them all over the globe to combat sinister plots and dangerous adversaries. But a new assignment leads them to a genetic engineering laboratory on an abandoned oil rig where they discover the most disturbing threat to mankind they have ever seen.

Back in the United States, CIA analyst Meredith Webb exposes a frightening connection between the agency she has devoted her life to and the abandoned oil rig. Her investigations are short-lived when terror spreads across the country. Something is turning humans into nightmarish creatures hell-bent on destruction.

Dominic and Meredith face impossible odds in a perilous effort to fight the impending apocalypse. But will their efforts be enough to turn the tide—or is humanity’s fate already sealed?

"A thrilling, pulse-pounding addition to the genre with compelling science and a frightening twist." -- Nicholas Sansbury Smith, USA Today bestselling author of the Extinction Cycle series and Hell Divers.

What won me over was the author's obvious enthusiasm for the premise. This overcomes any small flaw. The Tide takes off at breakneck speed and never slows. The only downside is the multi-subplots and locales. That approach appears to be chosen to establish the series and give a global feel a la World War Z.

That leads me to Melchiorri's choice of creature. It is a zombie/monster hybrid that is refreshing for the genre. The being's capabilities set up more challenges for the human race than the usual shambling hordes. I always gravitate to the elite soldier angle and this is served up in large doses. At times this outing reminded me of a Jeff Long or Matthew Reilly novel. That is high praise as I love their books.

This last comment/question is for the genre overall...why all the series? I know the answer of course but wish there were more brilliant standalone efforts. Why? Because as much as I enjoy the first in the series I always grow bored as they go on.

It started with an historical event that got you interested and evolved into a full mystery as to why someone would make a plague that would deform and enrage people. Unlike many Zombie stories, this one is up close and personal. The people who discover this historical plague try to reconcile their lives with what has happened and are determined to find a cure. Just when they believe they have the cure, things change and the creatures they refer to as 'skulls' become even more. I cannot wait for the next enthralling installment by Melchiorri to find out how the world copes with and finds answers for this diabolical malady.

If you are a fan of Mathew Reilly, Greg Bieck, Clive Cussler, you will enjoy this novel. Anthony delivers a fast paced believable plot. The characters are anything but shallow. You receive a lesson in biology. Plenty of military hardware to keep us action fans salivating. Will be devouring the next two installments. I highly recommend this series to those readers who like to be "on the edge of their seats!"
