The navies of the world start a frenzied search, but even these ships disappear without a trace. Enter the Event Group, the most secret organisation in US history. Armed with proof that history is repeating itself, the Group finds themselves in the grasp of an insane genius straight out of the pages of Jules Verne. They are up against the descendent of the man who was the inspiration for the captain of a vessel known to the world as Nautilus. Legend comes to life in the form of Leviathan, the most advanced undersea vessel in history. She will stop at nothing to save the seas and to render justice to humankind for a world that has long been dying, a world Leviathan plans to alter forever, unless the Event Group can stop her!… (more)

This series comes with a lot of twists and turns. I am in awe of David Golemon. His imagination knows no bounds. He writes in a way that you feel this might be possible. This book was no exception. He took Jules Verne and made it more and better! Loved every minute of this thrilling nail biting ride! ( )

Leviathan by David L. Golemon is the fourth novel in his Events Group series. After a prologue set back in time which touches on several historical events, we are in the present day and the ships of the world are under attack. The Event Group has been pulled into the fray and must find the answers to stop the conflict.

This time Golemon has taken his inspiration from literature. In the prologue, The Count of Monte Cristo inspires the setting in a French Prison in 1802. Most of the novel, however, is inspired by Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, with Golemon recasting Verne's characters and taking what was Verne's Nautilus forward through time, now as the Leviathan.

The series is all about escapism and entertainment - science fiction mixed in to an action/adventure novel. Leviathan is a much stronger book in the Events Group series than the previous novel, Ancients. I felt that the plot and action were more carefully conceived and planned out. While you still need to read the series in order to know and have a deeper understanding of all the characters, Golemon did do some added character development this time around, adding a little depth to several of his recurring characters.

All in all this was a strong addition to the Events Group series.
Highly Recommended; http://shetreadssoftly.blogspot.com/

I really enjoyed this book. Golemon gives us a fast-paced thriller that picks up just 6 weeks after the last book ended. The events in the previous book are not forgotten or fixed do and impact this story.

If you have been enjoying the Event Group books you won't be disappointed. If you have never read any of Golemon's books, Check out [The Event].

Well written and fast paced. ( )
