About the book: For decades, tales of mysterious disappearances and strange phenomena in the Bermuda Triangle have captivated the public. Now, a fascinating new science-fiction novel offers a plausible explanation for this enduring enigma.
Through the Triangle, from physics educator C.P. Stewart, packs a high-energy roller coaster of a story into a well-researched and fascinating book that might make you think twice before boarding that next flight or boat through this extensive region of the Atlantic Ocean. The book follows Jake Myers and his teenaged son Nathan, whose fishing trip to Florida takes a detour when their boat runs into a major storm. Little do they realize when they emerge that they're in the right place, but at the wrong time-the Florida coast, nearly 300 years in the future.
Now, this group is about to confront a terrifying part-human, part-animal species that can see in the dark. Together with a loose association of other humans, they'll have to rely on instinct and cunning to survive while they discover the frightening truth that has occurred over the past centuries. But an even greater threat might be one of their own.
Stewart's first book takes readers through the Bermuda Triangle to the other side and, while fictional, is based on research. He analyzed writings of well-known physicists on the subject of spacetime and M (formerly string) theory, along with reports by some of the fortunate people who were caught in the Triangle and survived to tell about it. The result is Stewart's conviction that people and objects don't cease to exist, but rather are propelled into another time.
It all combines for a savvy time-travel thriller that will keep you guessing right up until the shocking finale.
Before I started reading this book I didn’t have too high of expectations. I figured it would be more of a “men’s” book. I have to say I was VERY pleasantly surprised. The only thing I didn’t like was when the book ended – I wanted more! We’ve all heard of the Bermuda Triangle and the book used that idea as a starting point. A fishing boat is caught up in a strange storm and ends up almost 300 years in the future. The author’s imaginative ideas about what had happened to the world in that time were very well developed. His characters and the dialog were interesting and drew you into the story. There was a twist towards the end that made me go, “Oh, no!” but the story finished well. I think this may be one of the best books I’ve read this year.
Thanks to Bostick Communications, Outskirts Press and C. P. Stewart for providing me with a copy of this book to review.
I'm an Iowa gal and live on an acreage with my hubby and several cats. My husband is bi-polar which makes life interesting and frustrating at times. We have 1 son who also lives in Iowa. I've always liked to read and I'll always give my honest opinion about books and everything else (which sometimes people don't appreciate). I also love to enter sweeps, do different crafts, garden, and spend time with friends and family. You can reach me by emailing winterset AT peoplepc.com
