The oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and less than 10% has been explored. Sea life long thought extinct could still be out there, just waiting to be rediscovered…The Aquatic Research City (The ARC) had been hailed as a futuristic goldmine for scientific research and a facility adapt enough to discover all there is to know about the world’s oceans. The brainchild of the project, ruthless Billionaire James Maxwell-Baxter Senior, calls for drastic measures as unforeseen financial restrictions halt its construction amid the final steps of assembly.
To aide funding, a special congregation of public figures including the Governor of California are invited onboard the island-sized floating city for a one off tour. During the inaugural visit an unstoppable wave of devastation is set free in the shape of a captive monster sized shark of unknown origin. The shark heads out to the open ocean for the first time and Paleontologist Morgan Read, who alongside the crew of the vessel Wakinyan, heads off on a non-stop edge of your seat thrill ride as they attempt to put a halt to the shark’s terrifying rise up the food chain.
Like most writers, Rudd began writing the story for himself and found he wanted to add his own outlook on sharks to the small and diverse genre from, obviously Jaws, Steve Alten’s Meg series, and Exctinct by Charles Wilson.
Paul Rdd has always dreamed about writing a novel and after a bout of illness a few years ago, took it upon himself to pick up a pen and begin writing. Paul’s main literary influences include Peter Benchley, Steve Alten and J.R.R. Tolkien.
