DW: The Silurian Gift

This is a Quick Read, not even 100 pages. The Silurian Gift by Mike Tucker. While this doesn't feature Ace, this does feature explosives, so there are some similarities there.

In the Antarctica, Relham has a base... and guess who shows up? Intentionally as it happens, in that Pelham got in touch with some Silurians who offered him Fire Ice as a power source (what Fire Ice is is never explained). However, Pelham is a dick, and so one of the Silurians turns on him (after he nearly kills her), and wakes up some Sea Devils. And Myrkas. And the battle goes on from here.

So yeah, Sea Devils. They are on the cover, but we don't get a good look at them. I don't know if they are just artistic impression, or if these are they new designs. Certainly they don't get a lot of characterisation, and one is reminded of Warriors of the Deep a lot, but without the full pantomime horse effect of the Myrka.

Very much a quick read, and feels more like a mini-episode than most of them do.
