Join Marty and Grace in the thrilling sequel to Cryptid Hunters—Tentacles by Roland Smith.

Author: Roland Smith

Grace and Marty’s last adventure was life-changing. Travis Wolfe’s team of Cryptid Hunters found two dinosaur eggs in the Congo, while narrowly escaping Noah Blackwood (Grace’s grandfather) and his politically powerful cronies. Weirdest of all, Marty and Grace discovered that they aren’t twins like they had been raised to believe—they’re cousins!


Aboard the Coelacanth

Now Grace, Marty and his best friend Luther are joining the Cryptid Hunter’s on their journey by sea to New Zealand. Their ship, the Coelacanth (see-la-kanth) is fit to burst with high-tech security equipment, hoping to thwart Noah Blackwood from infiltrating their ship. But a man with as much money and influence as Noah Blackwood is hard to keep at bay.


Giant Squid

The team sets sail in search of another creature of legend—a giant squid. Meanwhile, they prepare for the dinosaur eggs to hatch. But there’s some suspicious activity going on aboard the ship. Cameras and security gadgets are going missing. It’s rumored that there may be a stowaway.


Evil in Disguise

Butch McCall, Noah Blackwood’s main man, has disguised himself as a scientist and boarded the ship. With so many faces on board, he’s sure to blend into the crowd. When the timing is right, it’ll be his job to kidnap Grace, steal the dinosaur eggs, and sink the Coelacanth. Is he up the challenge?


The Bottom Line

Tentacles by Roland Smith is non-stop entertainment. The book mentions a lot of high-tech devices and ship operations, but it’s easy to follow for those who aren’t familiar with the equipment. Adventure lovers and sci-fi buffs won’t be able to put Tentacles down.

    Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl named Cinderella. She lived with her wicked stepmother and two stepsisters. They treated Cinderella very badly. One day, they were invited for a grand ball in the king’s palace. But Cinderella’s stepmother would not let her go. Cinderella was made to sew new party gowns for her stepmother and stepsisters, and curl their hair. They then went to the ball, leaving Cinderella alone at home. Cinderella felt very sad and began to cry. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appeared and said, “Don’t cry, Cinderella! I will send you to the ball!” But Cinderella was sad. She said, “I don’t have a gown to wear for the ball!” The fairy godmother waved her magic wand and changed Cinderella’s old clothes into a beautiful new gown! The fairy godmother then touched Cinderella’s feet with the magic wand. And lo! She had beautiful glass slippers! “How will I go to the grand ball?” asked Cinderella. The fairy godmother found six mice playing near a pumpkin, in the kitchen. She touched them with her magic wand and the mice became four shiny black horses and two coachmen and the pumpkin turned into a golden coach. Cinderella was overjoyed and set off for the ball in the coach drawn by the six black horses. Before leaving. the fairy godmother said, “Cinderella, this magic will only last until midnight! You must reach home by then!” When Cinderella entered the palace, everybody was struck by her beauty. Nobody, not even Cinderella’s stepmother or stepsisters, knew who she really was in her pretty clothes and shoes. The handsome prince also saw her and fell in love with Cinderella. He went to her and asked, “Do you want to dance?” And Cinderella said, “Yes!” The prince danced with her all night and nobody recognized the beautiful dancer. Cinderella was so happy dancing with the prince that she almost forgot what the fairy godmother had said. At the last moment, Cinderella remembered her fairy godmother’s words and she rushed to go home. “Oh! I must go!” she cried and ran out of the palace. One of her glass slippers came off but Cinderella did not turn back for it. She reached home just as the clock struck twelve. Her coach turned back into a pumpkin, the horses into mice and her fine ball gown into rags. Her stepmother and stepsisters reached home shortly after that. They were talking about the beautiful lady who had been dancing with the prince. The prince had fallen in love with Cinderella and wanted to find out who the beautiful girl was, but he did not even know her name. He found the glass slipper that had come off Cinderella’s foot as she ran home. The prince said, “I will find her. The lady whose foot fits this slipper will be the one I marry!” The next day, the prince and his servants took the glass slipper and went to all the houses in the kingdom. They wanted to find the lady whose feet would fit in the slipper. All the women in the kingdom tried the slipper but it would not fit any of them. Cinderella’s stepsisters also tried on the little glass slipper. They tried to squeeze their feet and push hard into the slipper, but the servant was afraid the slipper would break. Cinderella’s stepmother would not let her try the slipper on, but the prince saw her and said, “Let her also try on the slipper!” The slipper fit her perfectly. The prince recognized her from the ball. He married Cinderella and together they lived happily ever after. Anne was a poor girl who lived with her mother. Every day, an ice cream man would pass by her house but she had no money with which to buy one. She would look at other children licking large cones of ice cream and wish she could also be one of them. Ice-cream cart                                                                                                                                One day, the ice cream man took pity on her and gave her the whole ice cream cart. He said. “This is a magic cart. You can ask it to make any kind of ice cream. But when you want it to stop. you must say, ‘Enough now’.’* Anne was very happy; she ate ice cream all day. One day, while she was away at school, her mother asked the cart to make some ice cream. The cart started doing so. But Anne’s mother did not know how to stop it, so the cart went on making ice cream. Soon, the whole house was filled with ice cream. When Anne returned and saw ice cream everywhere. she had to lick tier way to the cart and stop it!
