RickMiddleburg, FLAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Review from a Man's PerspectiveAugust 24, 2013RickMiddleburg, FLAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I always like to give a personal insight into any book that I'm reviewing. For this one, I met the author during a chat one evening on the Book Fun Network (www.bookfun.org) We were discussing his new book, "30 Days Hath Revenge", and he agreed to send that book to me to review. When the book arrived, I found that Mr. Thompson had been nice enough to include "Serpent's Grasp" as well. Long story short, I reviewed "30 Days Hath Revenge" and forgot all about "Serpent's Grasp". The other night, while ribbing Mr. Thompson about getting his sequel written for "30 Days Hath Revenge", he mentioned that I hadn't yet reviewed "Serpent's Grasp". So I picked it up from my church library and had it done in a few short days.
Dr. Evelyn Sims seems to be barely hanging on. Her scientific views aren't the "norm" in the science world, her science lab needs some serious updating and her marriage of 6 years appears to be falling apart. When a boat is attacked off the Florida coast, her lab is sent in to investigate what may have attacked the boat. Unfortunately, this isn't just any regular boat, this is her husband's boat. Micah Gregson is the captain of the vessel that intercepted the distress call from the boat. With a background in Naval Intelligence and many years on the seas, this is the first such attack that he's ever seen. Micah and Dr. Sims join forces to find out what exactly is happening in the ocean, especially when another ship is attacked. A roadblock to their joint effort, though, is FBI Agent Jackson. Jackson runs an elite group of FBI Agents that track down and investigate "paranormal" occurrences. Agent Jackson will do whatever it takes to keep the truth hidden, even if it means murder. What is in the ocean attacking these ships? Can Dr. Sims and Micah expose the truth? Is Agent Jackson able to keep the facts from being investigated? Who really is Agent Jackson? Pick up the book and keep reading and you'll find all of these after you BUY THE BOOK!
I read a lot, so I like a lot. It really takes something really bad in a book for me to say that it didn't bring me enjoyment. "Serpent's Grasp" is one that not only brought me enjoyment, it held my attention and give me some great research material. This book, while being a great mystery/suspense novel about a creature under the sea, is also a book about evolution and thoughts on science in general. As this is a work of fiction, I understand there are times when the creative license gets to be used, so keep that in mind while reading this book. The pace is very fast, the author breaks down time lapse by doing mini chapters within a main chapter. This keep everything moving quickly and the action never time to stop. Mr. Thompson provides some witty repertoire for his characters so I found myself chuckling at their interaction sometimes. I enjoy a book that gives me a comedic pause in the midst of all of the suspense. It's almost like being on a rollercoaster and having a chance to catch my breath before the next big drop.
Is this a man's book? With the suspense and the intrigue, this book would fit into any man's "to be read" pile. This book has government conspiracies, fishing and monsters. Everything you need to make it a perfect book for a man to read

Great read!February 6, 2012bookreaderDHTavares, FloridaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5â€Ž4:15 PM Just finished book. It's so good you have to keep reading and finish. I read until almost 2 AM then got up at 8:30AM (early for me) to read more. I got stopped with babysitting and lunch out with husband (It's his birthday!) and finally got to get back to it about 1PM. I really really enjoyed it and it's intriguing plot. I won't say alot about it so I don't ruin it for others. But I will say you won't want to put it down and in my book that means it's a book you want to read!

Tell us a little about yourself. C. KEVIN THOMPSON is an award-winning author, a drummer is his church's praise band, and an educator. He is also an ordained minister and holds a B.A. in Bible from Houghton College (New York), an M.A. in Christian Studies from Wesley Biblical Seminary (Mississippi), and an M. Ed. in Educational Leadership from National-Louis University (Illinois). When he's not writing, he's spending time with his wife, Cindy, of over 33 years. He has three daughters, two sons-in-law, and five grandchildren.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wrote this book to bridge a gap within the Christian fiction market. Guys like me love to read the Michael Crichtons and Douglas Prestons in the secular market, but as Christians, we get weary of dealing with the language and the anti-biblical views often portrayed in the characters and overall storylines.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? An appreciation for God's Creation from a scientific perspective.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? By how current God's Creationary Work is. Everywhere you turn, there are new discoveries being made which confirm His handiwork. You just have to have "eyes to see and ears to hear" what the discoveries are telling mankind as it searches for answers to the meaning of life.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I've been heavily influenced by John Wesley, John MacArthur, and Chuck Smith. Their biblical insight inspires me. As for fiction, there are many. Too many to list here. Music? Most praise & Worship (Tomlin, Redman, etc.). Downhere. PFR. Steven Curtis Chapman.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I write edgy fiction. Edge-of-your-seat fiction. Fiction that makes you think. Ponder. Question. Seek. It's a ministry as much as it is a profession. I want it to be an extension of my life (as salt & light). Not just something people read JUST to find pure enjoyment.
