Publisher's Summary

Scar is a killing machine. Born from DNA spliced between the extinct Megalodon and modern-day Great White, he has a viciousness that transcends time. His evil is reflected in his eyes, his savagery in his two-inch serrated teeth, his ruthlessness in his trail of death. 

After escaping captivity, the killer shark travels to the island community Cross Point, where prey is in abundance. With an insatiable appetite, heightened senses, and skin impervious to bullets, Scar kills everything that crosses his path. His reign of terror puts him at war with the island sheriff Nick Piatt.

With the body count rising, Nick vows to protect his island community from the vicious threat. With the aid of a marine biologist, a rookie deputy, and a bad-tempered fisherman, Nick leads a crusade against Scar, as well as the ruthless scientist who created him.

Narration speed is accelerated

I love books about deep sea monsters and Scar fits the bill! The narration speed sounds like it is in fast forward mode at 100% so I backed it down to 80-85% and then it sounded fine. Hope to find more similar to this book.

Chomp

I think more time was spent describing gory eviscerating shark chomping than on the story itself, seriously.

lots of underlying sexism

in a book with a female main, the sexism runs rampant. along with all the long extended gun rants makes it hard to keep listening.

Like fingernails scratching a blackboard ...

Not worth the time it'd take to expatiate. Absurd characters - and even more ridiculous characterizations of Orcas.

Overall wasn't bad

I know it was a mixture of Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, Meg, and a few other shark related genres, but it wasn't bad. I really enjoyed the snarkiness of some the characters while others seemed to be the traditional stereotypical characters. There were a couple sections that reminded me of the novel Meg though the genders were reversed. Overall it was a good book to listen to.

I can't think of one right now

Has stated before the descriptions of the attacks grew rather monotonous and at 1 point I thought it was hysterical that the author actually mentioned jaws spin off in his jaws spin off In so far as it goes it was a good waste of 8 hours I probably wouldn't listen to it again I definitely would not spend money on it or waste a credit on it

Just. No.

Sex, violence, red eyed shark. Seems to have been written by or for a teenage boy. Listen to one of the MEG series books instead.

Should become a motion picture

Very good story. Likeable and unlikeable characters. Has all the elements to a good story, suspense, irony and foreshadowing. Not a fan of the red eyes but it’s original. Story should end on a cliff hangar. Too much of a picture perfect ending. Overall great story!

Bloody Brilliant!

I love a good shark story, so I didn't take much winning over. Fairly standard fare really in terms of general theme but there were a few really stand out parts. I love Barney's character! I like that the writer has two female leads, polar opposite characteristics but I've met people like both of them! Well written and very well performed! Give it a go if deep sea thrillers are your thing!

Another triumph

I personally love deep sea thrillers, and Michael Cole has written some of the best, thus one is no exception, although be it a bit short, but well worth it. The characters where well balanced, the attacks definitely well described, along with Michael’s Thresher this has to be one of my favourites.

Awesome Jawsome!!!!

ok, this is not great literature but if you like sharks, cheesy characters and an even cheesier storyline, this is for you!!! Jaws, Meg and Sharknado in one. I only took a star off because there were too many f words for me. Not necessary at all.

Not for me

This book wasn't great. I found it to be poorly written, badly characterised and predictable. The narrator wasn't the best either so the audio book had no redeeming features; so much so that I gave up and returned it well before the end.

Really enjoyed this, terrific narration.

Good paced action horror, the usual suspects but why not? It works a treat, recommended.

Average but okay

Nothing new here and very much a Benchly and Alten ripoff. If you have read the Meg series then it's worth a read.

Absolute rubbish

Interesting storyline, written poorly. Not sure which reviewer gave it 5 stars, but they can’t have been listening to the same book. If you like this genre, purchase Jaws!

Loved it.

It's great. If you like these kind of stories (you know who you are) I doubt you'll be disappointed. Narration is fantastic, story is engaging the whole time, and the ending, even though there is a touch of foreshadowing, is really good. Also, Scar is a bad***.
