Review: Through The Triangle

Through The TriangleThrough The Triangle by C. P. Stewart

Genre: Science Fiction
Published: August 2009
Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who hasn’t wondered about the Bermuda Triangle, that mysterious area in the Atlantic Ocean where ships and people have vanished into the mist. Where do they go? We discover what happens to one group who leave for a day of fishing and find themselves returning to a much changed Florida coast after sailing through a storm in Through The Triangle, a science fiction thriller, by C. P. Stewart.

The novel starts off with a bang when we meet Manny Contraldo. Manny is an escaped con and up to no good. He ends up assuming the identity of a businessman and takes his place on a deep sea fishing charter with fellow passengers Jake and his son Nathan, the captain, Mason, and his first-mate, Juan. But Manny is only one of the dangers this unlikely group of adventurers will face after they survive the storm and arrive back on shore 300 years in the future. They now need to rely on themselves, their knowledge, skills and each other to survive.

Stewart has created an interesting future world for his characters to explore. It has all the elements of adventure and enough detail to draw you in but not so much as to make your head burst. This was a very enjoyable read which kept me turning the pages in anticipation to find out what would happen next. The story did not become predictable and I was kept in suspense for the surprise ending. I will say this much, without giving up any spoilers, it could have gone in several directions but I was pleased with how it turned out.

I admit I am a big fan of science fiction. I grew up reading the adventure filled books of the 60’s and 70’s and watching television shows like the original Star Trek, places where science solves the problems of the world not causes them as we see in many of the novels today. As the trend in science fiction becomes darker and more dystopian, with characters and plot lines that are confusing and sometimes undecipherable, it’s refreshing to find this fun, fast-paced adventure that will appeal to fans of all ages. Highly Recommended.
