The Final Voyage of the Sea Explorer takes the reader into a world well beyond that of Cousteau’s startling adventures by mixing a treacherous watery mystery with sinister realism. Adventure, excitement, fun – this one has it all. You won’t forget the adventures of Josh and Jimmy as they embark on a simple scuba diving vacation. Who knew that death stalked them from below -- in the water. And above it...
--DP Roseberry, author of Rodenticider, and No Way Out
Douglas Boren paints a breathtaking landscape of the sea; her majestic beauty as well as her penchant for danger. The characters come alive on the page and his dialogue, as usual, is sharp and realistic.
I swear I could taste the salt water and feel the ocean's warm breezes in my hair! The man knows of what he writes! An exciting tale for readers of any age, Sea Explorer should be on anyone's reading list who cannot quite bank that Bahamas vacation! They say 'write what you know’; well obviously Douglas Boren has done just that with this thrilling action/adventure!
A true adventure in the old-fashioned sense of the word. Highly recommended!
--Terry Vinson, Author of Sidekicks Incorporated
Douglas Boren has captured the essence of the sea in this novel. He makes you care about the people in his story as well as the ocean life. You feel as if you are seeing what divers see on each dive. You feel the beauty and majesty of the ocean as you take the seven day journey with the crew and guests of the Sea Explorer. Clearly he is speaking from experience. Excellent book!
