Nick Cutter, is one of the Cutter brothers, and is as close to them as anyone can be. He considers them to be his closest friends and partners in their business Cutter Salvage. Nick knows diving like its breathing air, Nick and his closest friend, are working together on their latest salvage project. Nick Cutter, is logical and is well nicknames as “spock” for his mannerisms and personality that is very similtar to the fictional character. Nick Cutter is the brother I was most excited to read. After seeing him in the first book, I loved mostly his relationship with his brothers, but I also admired his tenacity and his practical manner. What we see in this story is quite a bit more depth to him, and we see a side of him that we don’t see in the first book. A side of him that Bia brings out in him….a man that can be playful and sweet.
Bia, is a princess, but when she was a girl her parents were murdered by terrorists who were after their country, and she barely made it out of there alive. She was raised in the states, by her bodyguard, who was more like a father to her. Bia, the moment learning of her brother’s foolish decisions that will cost them everything they have gained recently, she will fight for their country, even if her brother won’t see reason. What I really admired about Bia is her determination to save what is left of her family. She is strong willed, passionate, intelligent and driven. She beautiful both on the inner part of herself and on the outside. Her personality was easy to be endeared to, and I loved the way she fights for what she believes in. She has this zest for life that is contagious.
