The Deep Novels by Tom Taylor Review

My kiddos love comics and action heroes and The Deep, now available to stream on Netflix, based on the Aurealis Award-winning graphic novels from #1 New York Times bestselling comic book author Tom Taylor, might be a great summer watching or reading choice.

The Deep is a visually stunning underwater adventure series for kids ages 6 – 12 and their families!

The Deep follows the adventures of the Nekton family—a brilliant team of underwater explorers.  There’s 12-year-old Antaeus (Ant); his analytical 15-year-old sister Fontaine, an astute navigator; and their parents Will, an oceanographer, and Kaiko, a marine biologist; and, of course… Ant’s pet fish!

The Deep Synopsis:

Continuing a long family legacy, the Nektons live aboard a state-of-the-art submarine, the Aronnax, while exploring uncharted areas of the earth’s oceans to unravel the mysteries of the deep sea

While others look up to the stars, this family knows that an infinite number of things shine brightly in the darkness below. The Deep is a place where sea monsters swim through sunken cities, pirates lurk amidst floating black markets, and where a mysterious group of Guardians hide long lost secrets.
