Chimera Island by Martin Roy Hill is an exciting science fiction thriller. Strange things are happening on the isolated island called Chimera. This is the story of the special team of American Coast Guard soldiers who are sent to investigate. Think Bermuda Triangle confined to an island rather than in the middle of the ocean. Commander Gates and his small team of soldiers land on the island, expecting to find a logical scientific explanation for all of the strange occurrences. It doesn’t take long, though, before they find themselves surrounded by supernatural forces beyond their understanding. Soon, their goal shifts from scientific study to finding a way off the island.
Chimera Island has just the right mix of intense plot twists and well-rounded characters. The story moves at a good pace with new dangers appearing around every corner. The eventual explanation of the strange occurrences was not what I expected, making it a fun surprise for me as a reader. A good story is nothing, however, without interesting human beings for the reader to care about. Chimera Island delivers with an exceptional cast of characters. Every man and woman on the investigative team is unique with fully developed personalities, each adding a layer of richness to the story. I found it easy to relate to each member of the team, and root for them to make it out alive. I highly recommend Chimera Island by Martin Roy Hill for anyone who likes a solid thriller tinged with weird science, in an eerie tropical setting.
