Book Review: Teeth of the Sea By Tim Waggoner

Teeth of the Sea
By Tim Waggoner
October 3, 2017
ASIN: B07652R299
ISBN: 9781925711196
They glide through dark waters, sleek and silent as death itself. Ancient predators with only two desires – to feed and reproduce. They’ve traveled to the resort island of Las Dagas to do both, and the guests make tempting meals. The humans are on land, though, out of reach. But the resort’s main feature is an intricate canal system . . .

. . . and it’s starting to rain.

Tim Waggoner’s novella has prehistoric creatures, pliosaurs, that hadn’t died out like people believed. These aquatic monsters are alive and return to their spawning grounds, the resort island of Las Dagas. Unfortunately, there are people vacationing there.

When the first four (two males and two females) of the returning pods manage to get into the canal system from the ocean, they begin stalking any human as food. Before long, it is hard to deny there aren’t murderous giant reptiles eating people, or maybe they really are “devils” as one Hispanic worker claims. An online crypto show, Hidden World, flies in to tape a show about the “real” monsters. Then scientist Andrew Rivera, and his daughter who has a past with the leading crypto hunter, Joel Tucker, show up, things get even more sticky, along with horrifying.

If you enjoyed watching those sea monsters sci-fi movies of the 50s and the dinosaur ones of the 60s, you’ll enjoy this story. It’s a quick read, too. Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water again, Waggoner has the reader rethinking that.

I give Teeth of the Sea 4 1/2 "sheep of the sea"
