Two years after his wife’s death, oceanographer and former navy SEAL, Atticus Young, attempts to reconcile with his rebellious daughter, Giona, by taking her on the scuba dive of a lifetime—swimming with a pod of peaceful humpback whales in the Gulf of Maine. But the beauty of the sea belies a terror from the deep—a horrific creature as immense as it is ancient. There is no blood, no scream, no fight. Giona is swallowed whole by the massive jaws. Only Atticus remains to suffer the shame of the survivor and his inconsolable grief turns to an unquenchable thirst for revenge.
Drawn by the spectacle, Trevor Manfred, a ruthless billionaire, approaches Atticus with a proposition: Trevor will make available all the advanced technology of his heavily armed mega-yacht, the Titan, to aid Atticus in his death-quest. In return, Trevor is to receive the beast’s corpse as the ultimate hunting trophy. But in the midst of the hunt, Atticus makes a terrifying discovery that changes the way he sees the ocean’s creatures and begs the question: What is Kronos? The answer sets him on a new and much more deadly course.
This updated edition has been re-edited, revised, repackaged and expanded, making this new edition of KRONOS superior to all that came before. Be sure to look for Robinson’s early standalone novels, which have likewise been revised.

Good Read, Lukewarm and Predictable Climax
Robinson is an astute and learned author. Secondworld blew my mind, and Kronos put its hooks in me as well. My issue comes from the mediocre climax of this book that was very predictable. I also wasn’t clear on why the theme of Jonah and the Whale made its way in here. The four star review comes only due to the fact that I still had questions after I finished reading. Please don’t let this deter you if you’re a modern sci fi enthusiast like myself. This book was worth every penny and I think you’ll enjoy it as well.
Couldn’t put it down!
