Main Characters
Choose 1 main character to describe: What do they look like?
Xev: He has jet black hair, shaggy and a large fringe across his forehead. He has a light tan to his skin and a teardrop shaped birthmark on his back.
Monty: Bright vibrant red hair, and one crimson coloured iris and another deep brown one.
Xev and Monty have been chosen to go on an expedition in an unknown area of the Pacific Ocean, whilst caught in a hurricane Xev catches a glimpse of a large shape underneath the ship, and is knocked out soon after by a stray piece of wood planking, resulting in him being thrown off the ship into the ocean. Monty is left hanging on to a mooring rope left on the side of the ship, finding a ledge and crawling into it, falling into a deep slumber. Afterwards Xev wakes up a makeshift raft made out of broken pieces of timber and bits of tied rope, with Monty rowing with scavenged oars, the rest of the story is mainly based around finding a fabled creature called the Leviathan, and destroying it from the face of the world.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
To be honest I didn't find this book quite appetizing, the main events happening towards the end of the book and a large lack of descriptive capabilities. I wouldn't recommend this book to any relatives or friends or mine because of the way that the book leaves out major details to help read it and enjoy it. The only part which I found up to standards was the introduction the the setting of the book, nevertheless I didn't find this book entertaining at all.
