    Great sci-fiI have always loved sci-fi movies and tv but have never read any books of this type but what perfect book to chose for my first. Honestly at first I couldn't tell if the story about aliens or the world changing because man doing somethingThere are a lot of characters in the story so you need to carefully read the parts of the story where new characters are discussed. All of the characters are well developed and the ending is unexpectedI understand the author is planning on writing additional books on this storyline. I will be looking forward to these.

    One of the few books that I've truly loved, a wonderful piece, Mr. Kern really captures the confusion and exploration. This book has a lot of the elements in the Destroyermen series, my current favourite. This comes in a close second!

    Excellent storyThis is an exceptionally well written story with great characters and fantastic plot twists. The battles with the pirates will keep you on the edge of your seat and an ending that will shock you.

    Good read In some ways it reminded me of the 1980's movie "The final count down." The characters are diverse but I'm having trouble with the protagonists change of conscious from bad to good that appears to me to be too easy. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.

    OriginalI enjoyed the original plot of this book. It was not at all predictable. I am eager to read a sequel.

    So I had a few minutes to kill and picked this up just to see what it was like. And - I know it's a cliche - but it grabbed me immediately and wouldn't let me go.The story is simple enough - the setting is 2024, and a state-of-the-art cruise liner suddenly finds itself lost in the Caribbean and everything starts to look very unfamiliar...Thus begins a whole string of problems - which, surprisingly, the crew do their best to address professionally and work on, and never act like idiots just to make someone else look like a hero.There is a marine veteran on board who becomes part of the story, though not so much as I might have expected. And kudos for Kern giving a war-scarred soldier very real physical injuries and making them part of his story.There are a couple of nice twists and turns, and although room is left for a sequel, this book wraps up nicely.I've enjoyed Ralph Kern's previous science fiction novels, but in this book we can really see how quickly his writing has matured and become truly polished. The narrative is smooth and fast-paced, and there's not an ounce of fat anywhere.At times - especially with the Marine veteran - I was reminded of Lee Child's writing. However, much of the narrative is more reminiscent of Tom Clancy, with his seamless technical references, grand game plan, and ever increasing stakes.It was especially pleasing that Kern avoided easy cliches, and didn't grasp for easy solutions.All in all a superb book, written to a very high standard, with sympathetic characters, an increasingly complex yet believable plot, and one of the best near-future thrillers I've read in a long while.

    Strong character development. Believable action sequences. Solid research into modern ocean-going technology. An interesting premise. These ingredients all add up to a compelling and exciting read.Mr. Kern doesn’t spend a lot of time on description, but allows the world he’s created to reveal itself gradually. The descriptions used are effective and put the reader in the scene without overdoing it.As a fan of Kern’s other books, Endeavour and Erebus, the thing that struck me while I was reading Unfathomed was that it was not unlike a space opera. The battles at sea could just as easily have taken place in space with some literary manipulation. Mr. Kern states that Battlestar Galactica was an inspiration for this book and it shows through in glimpses aboard the massive cruise ship Atlantica. It grounds the reader in a way you don’t get from a lot of futuristic science fiction. The technology is relatable and indeed, very much based on what we have here today and thoroughly researched. I loved the descriptions and capabilities of the Paul Ignatius.I was reminded in parts of Clancy’s The Hunt for Red October. In part because of the ocean scenes, but also the action sequences are so detailed and believable. You really get a sense of being in the action, experiencing it through the eyes of these characters. There is a palpable realism to the combat.All of it leads us to an exciting, surprising finish. The first of three books, I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment. A thoroughly engrossing read.
