Sharkwater Beach by Tim Meyer

Tim Meyer wrote a cool guest post for my blog a week or so ago. I hope everyone enjoyed the top ten list as much as I did! Thanks, Tim! Street Sharks was one of my favorite cartoons in the 1990s. Gumby was another, but don't hold it against me. Now, let's get to the review. 

Sharkwater Beach begins at a subaquatic research facility called S.Q.U.I.D that is located 200 miles off the coast of Florida. Scientists conduct experiments, but it goes horribly wrong. It is utter chaos, with scientists running from the predator. This book goes full throttle from start to finish! 

Neil Pickard (a professor) calls Jill McCourty (an old student) to help him find out what went wrong at S.Q.U.I.D. Mangled and shredded bodies begin rising up to the ocean surface. Boats are destroyed. The gigantic shark is hungry for humans. That is when all hell breaks loose on Key Water Island!

If you are an adrenaline junky, then you will like this book! Jaws who? Jaws is tiny compared to the Ocean Queen. I loved reading from the Ocean Queen's point-of-view because it enhances the story. The killings are stomach turning and gut-wrenching. At times, I found myself rooting for the Ocean Queen. The ending was awesome! The second half of the book blew me away! 

All in all, this story is non-stop entertaining! It has ample amounts of thrills and kills! If you like Jaws or Shark Week, then you will enjoy this book!

I highly recommend this book to fans of sharks and horror!

4.5/5 shark fins!

Beneath the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the biggest predator on the planet hunts, craving the flesh and blood of every creature it can sink its teeth into.

Praise for Worlds Between My Teeth

“I loved this book! I really enjoy marine horror (probably because I'm hydrophobic LOL) and this is excellently done. Author Tim Meyer really knows how to delve deep into his characters, several of them in depth, and also fleshes out supporting characters too.” – The Haunted Reading Room

“I liked a lot of this story. Meyer kills it with his action scenes, his gore, and does a great job with a number of these characters. His strengths remind me of Hunter Shea. There's definitely a ton of talent here.” – Glenn Rolfe, author of Becoming
