Publisher's Summary

Here, for the first time, is the complete saga of Krakenstein, the titanic mutant who's out to save the world, whether humanity likes it or not. 

Noble environmental scientist Dr. Max Shepperton's bizarre transformation from nerdy human being to a 300-foot-tall squid-headed monster seems a great tragedy, until the world realizes that his Godzilla-sized new form might be the one thing that can prevent the Earth's vengeance against greedy corporate profiteers from bringing about the extinction of Shepperton's former species - the human race. 

Heroic renegades Jeremiah Savage and Key Sharlayne find themselves along for the ride as Key's sister Deanna, determined to help Max, takes things to an even more cataclysmic level. 

Loaded with immense monsters bent on laying waste to everything they can't eat, this "destroy all humans" trilogy is packed with action (and over a dozen monsters), driven by sharp dialogue and characters and just the right medicine for our 21st century culture, whose scientists and altruists are up against dire capitalists like just like Argiss Valance and Errol Magnus, who callously ravage the world as the heroes fight for a future that won't leave them smashed flat in a bus-sized footprint.

Topical, thrilling, and sharp-witted, the Krakenstein saga will take you to a future that looks all too possible, these days.

I wanted to like this, but couldn't finish

The very first thing that upset me was the author's forward. First, he goes on about how much he hates spoilers. Then, he starts reveling spoilers. What? The part that did me in, however, was the narration. There was no range of characters. There was male and poor, female. All the men and all the women sounded VERY similar throughout the narration. Finally, I gave up. I would try again with better narration. I would like to note that this book was provided as a free copy and my review is honest and genuine with no coercion from the provider of the title.

Monsters!

I loved how Candela told not only the battle of the monsters but how they developed. The evil billionaire seemed a little, no, more than a little, insane. The narrator was excellent, easy to listen to. The plot was the usual monster against monster, with a little love action threaded with. A good listen,
