Desron 22 was on standard, shakedown maneuvers when the squadron discovered the Pleasure Bound. The massive cruise liner was adrift, everyone aboard her, dead except for a single survivor. The man’s wild tales of monsters from the deep were hard to believe until those very monsters came after the squadron itself. Now a desperate battle for survival rages on the waves as the firepower of the United States Navy goes head to head with unspeakable terrors no human was ever meant to see and live.

With so many different novels either called Kraken or have the name Kraken as part of the title, I was please with the way this book went. Reading the synopsis, I knew that this would be a story that could have been a really good B-movie. It had all the characteristics of a creature feature, but with some surprises within it.
The story deals with a Cruise ship that is drifting listlessly in the open ocean. There is no activity on board and no engines are pushing the ship. The only ones on board are a man and woman trying to survive against the invasion of creatures from far below the sea. Creatures that had come aboard and killed and eaten everyone they could find. At the same time, not all that far away are a group of war ships on practice maneuverers that detect a large vessel heading their way and about to enter their perimeter of war-games. Trying to contact the ship proves un-fruitful and decide to investigate. What happens next is something no one could have...
Rely fun read. It was suspenceful at times however its similarity to that movie Deep "somthing" is what made me give it a three.
Enjoyed the book quite a bit. A solid, no-frills sea-monster tale.
