So, I decided to take a break from vampires and werewolves and all things paranormal. I picked up The Silent Sea because I have enjoyed all of Clive Cussler's books. I was not disappointed. Clive Cussler has a way of creating great action stories, full of suspense and lots of firepower and explosions. This story starts on an island off Washington State, moves to Argentina, Texas, and Antarctica. And just when I thought I would read a book that was vampire-free, there was a reference to the Twilight books, as the action moved to the town of Forks, Washington.It doesn't really matter what the story is about. It's about all the gadgets and machinery that the Corporation uses. It's a fun read and that's all.
