Surface Tension #3

   I love a mystery!

   And there's lots of it to go around in the offbeat science fiction adventure Surface Tension.

   It takes place on an island that faces a strange menace - one direct, the other a bit harder to sort.

   The direct one is the monster on the cover (the big ugly one), a powerful creature that is searching for something.

   The one that's hard to sort involves some gigantic coral structures in the ocean, the horrific transformation of two residents on the island, and an attempt to unlock hidden memories.

   This isn't a series for young readers - there are some disturbing images - but it's that rare treat: an intelligent science fiction story and an actual mystery, slowly unfolding before the reader's eyes.

   So far, so good!

Grade: A-
