Deep Madness: Shattered Seas

By Byron Leavitt

(20 Reviews)



His muscles elastic and his mind fragmented, Connor Durham awakens on an unknown beach. In the distance before him is a black tower whose peak rises to meet the clouds. In the water behind him are beings who used to be human, their bodies warping and twisting into horrific new configurations. With nowhere else to turn, Connor runs for the tower. In the Kadath deep-sea mining facility, Lucas Kane feels haunted. He dreams of lives he never lived and hears whispers from people who don’t exist. During his days, four gray figures vibrate in and out of focus behind him, their words mostly unintelligible mutters. But there’s something else that he sees while both awake and asleep: a sphere, massive, metallic, and beautiful, which awaits him outside Kadath’s walls at the bottom of the ocean. Separated by dimensions, these two men – and their unfolding stories – are intrinsically linked. As they descend deeper into the dark terrors of the unknown, they will draw inextricably closer together until, at last, both men find themselves trapped in the very depths of otherworldly madness. Welcome to Shattered Seas.

Featuring the ENTIRE Soundbooth Theater cast and original music by Aaron J. Morton, Deep Madness: Shattered Seas will allow fans of the popular tabletop game to follow their favorite characters in a new and exciting way.

Amazing production quality, the story is awesome. Can’t wait to listen to more!!

Very impressive

The Deep Dive really adds another narrative layer to the audiobook. A lot of work went into this, and the whole package is truly a nice surprise.

This is a simply sublime production of the highest category. The story is brilliant as well. A truly horrifying mix of The Thing, Dead Space, Leviathan and the most twisted Cthulhu tales. Excellent companion piece to the Deep Madness game.

Awesome and epic story made even better having audio.

Can’t play any audio. App crashes every time I try to play anything.

Great book in the Deep Madness world. Extremely fun with the Deep Dive!!

Fantastic story and production, but please fix the app so i can pick up the book where i left off. Everytime i try to listen to the book it restarts from the opening credits. This is unacceptable!

Excellent work. I loved every minute!

Lovecraftian story in a modern science fiction setting

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. The story is interesting and kept me curious for the next chapter. I very much enjoyed the different voices and sound effects and I think they add to the story engagement.

Good audio performance but I really have no idea what happened at the end…

Amazing book of madness

Great book

complete awesomeness!

Liked it a lot!

Well narrated and acted Deep Dive. Liked the story too.

Scary and Entertaining

Really enjoying it!

Love the story and the narration. Excellent!

The writing is amazind, and the voice actors really being the characters to life. Loved it

Purchased blindly off of a trusted recommendation. I listened to the deep dive variant which did a great job providing an immersive experience. The story was an intriguing and trippy semi horror psyche thriller that I throughly enjoyed. I don’t want to give anything away as I think going in blind is far more enjoyable than having some kind of expectation.

Great start, looking foward to the chapter of Maggie and Joe

Got the deep dive free as a backer of the Deep Madness board game Kickstarter. Levitt and the SBT staff did an incredible job bringing to life the themes and characters from the game. I enjoyed the performance so much that I started buying other deep dive books as well. Keep up the great work!

oh my God. this book was worth every penny! get the deep dive you will NOT be disappointed!!!!
