The Atomic Sea: Omnibus of Volumes One and Two Publisher's Summary

What is the secret of the Atomic Sea? Toxic. Mysterious. Lightning shoots up from it. Just to breathe the air above it causes mutation. Now, in a time of world war, one man will be pressed to discover the truth and unlock the secrets of the Atomic Sea, or the whole world will be plunged into nightmare. Join listeners around the globe in delving into the mysteries of this strange world.

A thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread.

Dr. Francis Avery is aboard a military whaling ship far out on the eerie Atomic Sea when a series of murders onboard propels him down a rabbit hole of danger and terror. For years he's tried to forget the deaths of his wife and child at the hands of the Empire of Octung, which has declared war on the world. He's fueled his anger into helping the defense against Octung and drowned his sorrows with whiskey. Now he becomes aware of an Octunggen spy on the ship. When his friend is murdered, he has no choice but to track the killer.

As if this wasn't enough, suddenly a mysterious woman is pulled from the toxic, lightning-wreathed depths of the Atomic Sea. Though weak, she's alive and unaltered by the waters - which should be impossible. Her name is Layanna, and only she can stop Octung.

As her doctor, Avery brings her back to health and in time grows to form an attachment to her...an attachment threatened when the spy who killed his friend is ordered to assassinate Layanna, too. Avery must save her and help her accomplish her mission, or the whole world will fall under Octung's shadow - and that of its enigmatic rulers.

That's just the beginning. With Layanna and the grizzled whaler Janx, Avery will embark on an epic, globe-spanning quest through a strange world to save it from Octung and unravel the secrets of the Atomic Sea. Get ready for high-flying action and excitement featuring zeppelins, romance, Lovecraftian horrors, and more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at.
