It started with fireballs raining down from the sky and crashing into the oceans' deeps.
Then ships began sinking mysteriously and later `sea tanks' emerged from the deeps to claim people . . . For journalists Mike and Phyllis Watson, what at first appears to be a curiosity becomes a global calamity.
Helpless, they watch as humanity struggles to survive now that water - one of the compounds upon which life depends - is turned against them.
Finally, sea levels begin their inexorable rise . . . The Kraken Wakes is a brilliant novel of how humankind responds to the threat of its own extinction and, ultimately, asks what we are prepared to do in order to survive.
