‘Nemo Rising’ A great sequel to a well known story
I have not had a chance to read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Yet I know a bit about the story. It tells the tale of a captain who created a one of a kind submersible, and saw all kinds of fascinating things. When I heard of Nemo Rising, I thought it sounded pretty good. I was able to read this book early, and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Nemo Rising here:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.
Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
Nemo Rising was a very good book. I will admit it starts off a bit slow, but once this story gets started it took me on an impressive journey. Readers go deep into this amazing submersible and all the wonders it possesses. This is a tale full of mystery, and a few surprises.
