Ghost Ocean by S.M. Peters
This 2009 novel is full of people, monsters and events that interact and spill off the page with no explanation as to who they are or what they are doing or why. Despite a mildly intriguing start this is an arguable disappointment. Where is this taking place? When is this taking place? There is an overall sense of detachment from reality and characters that are dangerous, spiteful and vengeful. Others have righteous fury and this is chaotic. This is annoying and characters are uninteresting ciphers. This potentially fascinating novel of malign influences is dull and not raw, visceral, intense or thought provoking.
“You join a long line of proud venerated dead people.”
“Its eternally locked door.”
