    1. Neal Asher on said:

      The sea bottles are bubbling away under the sea, each seemingly a gateway into another world, steadily raising the sea levels with brine whose touch will turn your skin to shark skin The artefacts of a recently fallen alchemic and magical dictatorship lie under the poisonous waters for anyone brave enough, or insane enough to retrieve them Steamships and sorcerous weapons abound, along with other fascinating devices in a steam punk fantasy world Dragons are addicted to what can only be described [...]

      rantingdragon sea of gFirst in Alan Campbell s new Gravedigger Chronicles, Sea of Ghosts is a mix of different genres The novel starts as an adventurous work of low fantasy with steampunk elements, but soon moves into completely new territories of paranormal and even epic fantasy, with scientific elements that expand to make this novel resemble something I can only describe as epic science fantasy All the while, Sea of Ghosts reads like a marine adventure written by Clive Cussler.Dragons, zombie [...]

      review when read on original publication review copy 2010 I have finished the book yesterday too full rv 2011 around publication date and I was mixed the writing style does not chime with me many times and the characters in the book are pure stock with no depth eg the frightened but very powerful girl, the honor, duty, bla, officer relegated by caricature emperor Hu to exileAlso there are so many over the top action sequences that happen because they need to happenThere were moments I thought th [...]

      Holy shit Just, wow.This book is rich in detail But not in a long winded and unnecessary way The world was so well thought out, half sinking under poisonous seas, half ravaged with war.The magical elements whilst remaining beautiful and colourful also border on science fiction A pairing I do so happen to love.This book starts out with a band of wartime heroes turned mercenary survivors aka the Gravediggers They re a witty, violent and close nit bunch But then they re split up, we follow Captain [...]

      This was a massive let down Massive And looking back, I don t know why I was surprised I have experienced Campbell s writing once before, and came out of it feeling distinctly meh However, from the moment I heard about this book to the moment I started reading it, I was captivated by the ideas that he presented It s just a shame that he let it down Three Stars.Plot Four Stars In concept, this was a five star book, however it s execution felt just like that an execution Set in a world where the h [...]

      removed the review for some reasonabitterdraft 2013 09 sea oI stumbled across Campbell s Sea of Ghosts back in May, and what caught my initial interest was the cover A man in heavy diving gear trudging out of the depths with some fierce looking weapons strapped to his back but the book dropped further and further down my list while books were added It returned to my attention at the words of Stefan of Civilian Reader and after jumping through some hoops to get my hands on a copy, I dove in.Empe [...]

      Whoaaa WHAT I ve just finished reading This one was one of the best fantasy adventure book read in the past years The wholse scenario it s absolutely brilliant with a world in wich the powerfull Magi race has been subdued by the traitor Guild of Psychics and the whole Planet has gone in a distructive state Now from the war all the sea is contaminated,there are a lot of things free out there, but the most amazing thing is that people can actually live under water in something like an undying stat [...]

      I love a dark world and this book s setting is GRIM Poison seas cover the earth, dooming any one even touching the brine , to a painful conversion to a sea creature and or death and the seas are rising Artifacts of a defeated magical race wait under the toxic sea for anyone brave, or desperate enough to plunder search for them a decadent empire, a militant order of telepaths, rule the remnants of a world doomed to a toxic watery death only a disgraced soldier, an opportunistic trove hunter and a [...]

    13. Peter Greenwell on said:

      Fast paced action, weird and wacky steampunk settings, and it is occasionally gripping material What it also possesses is a litany of characters who never transcend cardboard, periods where the writing is pedestrian some poor editing at play too and as with Campbell s prior three books, his imagination gets the better of him and logical flow goes out the window.The good outweighs the bad just, and it is a guilty pleasure of a read.

    15. Catherine on said:

      This is book one of a series The author has created a whole new type of world, and to understand the story you have to grasp the realities of this world I just found the story was moving faster than I could grasp all the differences that I had to learn It was like learning a new language Having said that, it s a good story, just not one I personally want to put any time and effort into to read the rest of the series.

    16. Unravel on said:

      An extremely atmospheric description of a dystopian world The setting is very well realised, the environment nicely described and the pace enjoyable and filled with well spaced and constructed plot turns I like the characters, the depth of their strengths and flaws is refreshing and unusual I could barely put it down and couldn t wait to read the sequel Lost one star for slightly overwhelming bleakness.

      a slow build to a frantic pace an intricate world with surprising features complex characters, many of them downright despicable i get the sense that this book is winding up the spring for one immense narrative, but manages to do this through the mostly smaller concerns of the characters depicted action, magic, philosophy, and bizarre technology are woven in with guilt, avarice, heavy responsibility, and self discovery i just finished it, and i still haven t found a good stopping place.edit upon [...]

      Originally reviewed here bit 10cNH7t with a bit pontificating, if you please D The first in the Gravedigger Chronicles, Sea of Ghosts brings to us another gloriously created world where the sea levels are rising and waters have turned toxic brine a substance left over by the last inhabitants of this world before humans A race called Unmer who were defeated by the human slaves with their psychic telepathic Haurstaf witches who now keep the Unmer under control But the brine is not the only legacy [...]

      The sea is toxic and gradually rising and the world reduced to a few isolated island archipelagoes Society is brutal, exploitative and feudal Thomas Granger is a hunted man and his daughter is a valuable political and scientific commodity Read onI picked this up on no than a whim after spotting it s rather striking cover art on the recommended section at the bookshop and, a few short days later, I put it down again, pretty much blown away OK, so I m no steampunk afficionado so I guess that some [...]

    20. Perry Watson on said:

      This book blew me away, mostly thanks to its excellent worldbuilding In this world, humanity was formerly enslaved by the Unmer, a race of evil sorcerer types When the Unmer were overthrown by the Haurstaf, an order of human telepaths, the Unmer threw millions of magic bottles into the ocean, enchanted to constantly spray out poisonous brine that turns human skin into sharkskin, and ultimately renders those fully immersed in it into the Drowned, a sort of aquatic mindless zombie.It s a bleak wor [...]

      Surprising how much I found myself enjoying this book as I neared the end when it had such a rocky start for me at least as I wasn t able to connect or even like any of the characters If I m to be perfectly honest, I think it was the presence of the Unmer that really snagged me though I have to say that they make a lot of weirdly pointless weapons knick knacks the contrariness of cats, that s the Unmer for you They lured me in with the little Unmer girl in the beginning and then left me adrift u [...]

      I always find it interesting comparing North American SF to the UK SF Some people would say it s just SF , but there is a definite difference in tone For one thing, I tend to find UK SF a little darker in tone, the worlds a little stranger.In Sea of Ghosts, you get both The Unmer are sorcerors who controlled the world for a very long time Then their human slaves rose up in rebellion, mainly aided by a guild of female telepaths who now control the surviving Unmer But in a final stroke of vengeanc [...]

      This is an intriguing fantasy novel which keeps the reader guessing as to where it is going A bit of steampunk, weird magic and fresh ideas assault the reader from almost the first page Set in an intelligently crafted world where the sea is rising and heavily toxic, there are a number of key protagonists a resourceful officer on the run from the Empire, a cunning treasure hunter, a witch and a young girl with some very strange abilities.What is interesting about this is that you can see where th [...]

    24. Matthew on said:

      Sea of Ghosts fits into multiple genres fantasy, steampunk, and even includes some elements of science fiction The author has managed to create a unique fantasy world, something different from standard fantasy it s sometimes bizarre, and there s a constant sense of danger and fascination The whole story has a dark and suspenseful atmosphere About half way through the book, I just couldn t stop reading The urge to find out what happened next was overwhelming I very much look forward to reading th [...]

      I finished Alan Campbell s Deepgate Codex back in 2010 and thought that it was wondrously strange and fun Now he s got a new series going called the Gravedigger Chronicles This first book takes place in a whole new, fascinating world One of the things that s great about this author is that he doesn t fall back on a faux medieval world like so many countless other fantasists He creates a new world from scratch The main character in this story is Thomas Granger, a colonel in an elite infiltration [...]

    26. Brian Steele on said:

      This book started out amazing The first chapter alone was one of the most captivating, original, and bizarre things I ve read in some time Unfortunately, it descended into a somewhat boring tale far too quickly.Campbell has created a unique world, a fantasy universe based off 17th century Europe than the middle ages like we see in traditional fantasy There is a odd, almost steampunkish element, along with the aspect of a flooded earth Sadly, there are almost too many alien concepts thrown in, a [...]

      This was a cover buy.I love the cover Then I began reading, and what a disappointment I couldn t care for Granger, I couldn t picture the world inside my head, nothing was explained.Some bits here and there were interesting, but mostly the story couldn t grip me and every time I picked the book up I d forgotten what had happened and had to reread the previous pages During my reading I often zoomed out and couldn t keep up with all the twist and turns.Almost nothing got an explanation What is the [...]
