A novella by Jeff lane called Crush Depth starts off his Origins of Legends series:

Marylou Kelsum is a young scientist about to embark on the journey of a lifetime on-board a first-of its-kind research submarine on its maiden voyage to the bottom of the Atlantic ocean.

But not long after they get under way, Marylou’s professional dream come true turns into a nightmare. A face appears, looking into her cabin porthole at the impossible depth of 5,000 meters below the ocean’s surface. And worse, she thinks she recognizes the face as that of a fellow crew member.

From the mind that brought you This Paper World and ONE WAY, Jeff Lane now invites you to dive to deep into the dark, cold waters of… Crush Depth.

good storyline

(4 stars)

maybe if i was to have read this prior to reading the world series I would have rated this higher. Those are a hard book to follow. But all in all an entertaining story. Definitely worth the read.I certainly do enjoy the way he narrated his books.

Mr. Jeff I really enjoyed this book. It was very gripping and suspenseful and the narration was done brilliantly! Thank you for sharing your work with everyone. My only complaint was I wish it was longer I did not want the ride to end. Thanks again!

Thank you for a great story! It was thrilling and I was very shocked to feel like the main character while listening, going short on oxygen and the lot. Wow! Looking forward to hearing more of your work.

Wouldn't be my favorite story but I enjoyed it anyway. I loved the AI. Where can I get an Ace? Please write a sequal. Does she decide to join the man? Is there still contact between them?

(4 stars)

good concept, well narrated, great sound effects. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the story fell short. I feel there should have been another six chapters still to come. You left me hanging on the edge of the seat!

Very entertaining but short.
