Murphy’s Law: If anything can go wrong, it will, at the most inconvinent time.
That seems to be the theme of “Mega: Deep Sea Thriller. From t..Show More »he first page to nearly the last that is what happens.
Ex-SEAL, Darren Chambers, hoped he had his financial problems in hand. OOPS, the bank repos his ship and leaves him and his crew high and dry.
Here comes Mr. Balentine, corporate money man with his own agenda, and his bodyguard Darby(female ex-Mosad).
Balentine hires Darren and his men to aid in the rescue of kidnapped sailors from Somali pirates. Then they would search for the monster whale that Darren has been looking for. He even makes Darren the captain of his new, larger, research ship named “Beowolf II”. Which BTW also has all the equipment and files from Darren’s old ship. (Don’t ask what happened to Beowolf I)
Balentine has also hired a team of ex-Seals, named them his Team Grendel, to run the rescue operation. Yup, Murphy’s Law.
At least none of them got killed, this time
This book is so filled with corporate intrigue, backstabbing, lies, and bickering you might think you were in a session of Congress.
The banter among the crew and Seals is quite funny at times. I liked the twins best. There are so many people to try to keep track of it is almost a relief when some of them are taken out.
Oh yes, there is a really big shark too and don’t forget the really big whale that Darren is searching for, and when they find them, it’s action,adventure, blood, and terror.
This book has it all and it is also fun to read, in this case listen too. The narrator was fantastic. He really got into it bringing the characters to life. I like it so much I kept repeating parts. The production of the audio was flawless. I’m going to get Bible’s other books.

I didn't read much about the plot before reading this, especially since I enjoyed the first one so much. Believe me, it ..Show More »is a blast. If you are a fan of Archer or the other Mega book -- this book is definitely for you.
The narration for Mega 2 Baja Blood was done by Lee Strayer who does a great job again. His narration really moved this story along and allowed me to get lost in it numerous times. I listened to this on a 2-hour drive (more than my normal 30 minutes to work) and it just passed the time perfectly. Strayer was able to portray all of the different characters with their different nuances and different outlooks perfectly.
I have never read a book that could have been an episode of Archer more in my entire life. Don't get me wrong here, I LOVE Archer, and I found myself laughing at it and even comparing characters to the people of Team Grendel. But, seriously. If anyone else has read this book and is a fan of Archer... tell me I'm wrong?
Other than the obvious Archer plot. Mega 2 was fun. I think that's what the author was going for. You can't have a plot like this without hoping that the reader will enjoy it. Sure, there are "serious" parts, but I honestly think this book was written more for fun than its seriousness.
Team Grendel is awesome, the dynamics between them always make me laugh. They are the most random collection of people I've ever read, and that's what makes them awesome.
Overall, Mega 2: Baja Blood was a blast. Serious fun from a not-so-serious group of ragtag individuals.
