Nature morphs and twists, and beasts that shouldn’t exist stalk the sea. At the edge of the abyss, where the Blake Plateau abruptly gives way to the deepest parts of the Atlantic Ocean, biologists investigate the largest marine die-off in history. An Everest-style base camp supporting scientists, staff, and eco tourists sits at the edge of the drop off, but the scientific mission turns to one of survival when mutant sea creatures threaten the base. Steven Hunte is a sea dog for hire, an ex-Navy biologist turned environmental activist whose been hired to support scientists studying the die-off. When the base is attacked and overrun Hunte must fight for the sea he loves, or watch it be destroyed along with everyone he cares about. At the drop off the fate of the world’s oceans will be decided.
