It doesn't take long to get to

know Sarah...the author takes you into

her psyche and never gives you

a chance to breathe.

 

–Barbara Slate, graphic novelist, author of Yuppies From Hell

Ross paints a picture of a deep,

dark, secret so vivid, I had to ask myself,

could this happen?

 

– Rob Dircks, Audible bestselling author of Where the Hell is Tesla?

Other than a few Ray Bradbury stories as a teen, in a previous century, I’ve managed to avoid any close contacts with sci-fi or fantasy fiction. But a late-life encounter with “Lost Arrow,” the first installment in Marshall Ross’ “Kalelah" trilogy, convinced me that I’ve been missing out on a wide and illuminating world of visionary adventure. Ross writes with impressive skills, mixing techno-fact and sci-fiction, and in the opening chapters of the first volume, leading to the discovery of  the underwater universe beneath the Mariana trench, he creates an atmosphere of mystery and foreboding, a brisk confluence of realism and other-worldly suspense. Ross reminds me of James Cameron, in laying the groundwork (or in this case the waterwork) for his vividly and credibly imagined plunge into unexplored depths.
