Depth is a dystopian mystery where the main character is a private investigator and her simple routine surveillance job becomes much more complicated. In a post apocalyptic flooded word where dry land is a myth.
Rosen drew me in like a moth to a flame. I was hooked from the first sentence. Depth is combination of gritty realism and dystopian fantasy. The combo is a good mesh that helps the world be more real. The incorporation of nautical terms, and describing the different types of bridges used was a great way to describe the world. His way with description of all the elements, such as the crashing waves, the perpetual fog, and what the character saw immersed me into the story. Depth is a fresh look to a well-used genre. The story was well thought out and plausible.
Simone the main character is a good mix of hero and antihero. She is tough, sexy and she knows it. She is confident in herself, and her job. The only thing that rubbed me was the fact that she didn’t trust no one, not even her friends. I think her paranoia was on the extreme scale. It could have been toned down just a bit and I would been happy. On a side note, I would love a gritty story where the character is happy go lucky not cynical and standoffish. But Simone was a good fit for this story. I loved the fact that ¾ of the characters was female. Not only were they female, but they were strong, independent women. There was no damsels in distress, well besides a quick one but it’s not really a D.I.D(damsel in distress) moment.
All in All, Depth is a fresh take on dystopian fantasy. Rosen is a definite author to watch and love. Go for and get this book. It’s a great book to get lost in. I rate this 5 out of 5 flooded buildings. Its only 272 pages long. It took me approximately 3 hours to read. This is based on my reading speed. I cross post on Amazon, and Goodreads.
