I’ve had the opportunity to read Ocean by indie author Dave Blackwell. The premise describes a young woman lost at sea in a futuristic world. Alone and near death, the survivor is picked up by an automated ocean reclamation ship.
That’s when things go off the rails. We quickly become aware that things are not as they initially seem, that there is a growing disconnect as expectation and the discovered reality drift apart. As the story develops, so do the questions regarding what is going on.
Overall, this story may appear linear, but there are enough twists to keep you guessing. You’ll have the opportunity to visit a futuristic version of Earth that would be best not to emulate.
If you are looking for a story that works within the realm of the possible and keeps you guessing, then this book is highly recommended.
