From one of Del Rey's most enduringly popular authors comes the third book in an action-packed new back-to-back urban fantasy series, following Emergence and Resistance, for fans of Jim Butcher and Kevin Hearne.
John Birmingham is the master of alternate history adventure-and now he's mastered a new genre with the volcanically fast-paced and wildly inventive Dave Hooper urban fantasy series. The series is anchored by a thrilling high concept: An oil rig opens a rift deep in the ocean that unleashes terrifying monsters into the world. But perhaps its coolest asset is its hero, Dave Hooper, a tough, bleakly funny, down-on-his luck oil rig worker with an unlikely destiny as a monster-slayer and world savior! With a memorable concept and an unforgettable new hero, the Dave Hooper series will satisfy Birmingham's large fanbase and convert a new legion of devoted fans.
John Birmingham (born 1964) is a British-born Australian author, known for the 1994 memoir, He Died With A Felafel In His Hand, and his Axis of Time trilogy.
