Blood Tide is the second installment from the Aquarius Rising series of Brian Burt. It was published last August 7, 2015 with 340 standard pages. The genre is Sci-Fi/Fantasy.
Megalops is an Aquarian, a human-dolphin hybrid who lives in one of the many reef-cities that thrive beneath the waves on an Earth ravaged by climate change. Some of the Humans who cling to the barren lands blame Aquarius for their plight and unleashed the Medusa Plague that entombed Megalops’s wife and daughter in stone. Tormented by that loss, Megalops dedicates everything to avenging his murdered family, no matter what the cost. He unleashes a Vendetta Virus as cruel and lethal as the Medusa Plague, a bio-weapon that transforms living Humans into Aquarian corpses. Ocypode — one of the heroes who stopped the Medusa Plague — and his band of Human and Aquarian allies battle desperate odds to prevent Megalops from committing an act of genocide that will escalate into global conflict, dragging the Earth’s other humanoid species into the chaos. War demands sacrifice. If Mother Earth and Mother Ocean wage war against each other, will anyone survive?
The book cover of Blood Tide is catchy and interesting. The title was perfect for the second installment of the series. The book is fast-paced so I never felt the book was dragging. Blood Tide is not a stand-alone book. To understand the story, the reader must read book one, or you’ll be lost. I love the writing style of the author. If you are a fan of Sci-Fi and Fantasy books, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. The book is also perfect for all ages because it doesn’t have sexual scenes, profanities and not too violent. I am not quite sure on how the author can improve his writing because overall, I love the book and story. Overall, Blood Tide is a great continuation of the Aquarius Rising series.
