Cover for 'The Leviathan Chronicles'

A hidden city called Leviathan lies deep within the dark trenches of the Pacific Ocean. The city is home to a community of immortals that sought to create a utopia over 1,000 years ago. For a millennia, they lived in peace and secrecy, gently influencing world events to aid the advancement of mankind. But a terrible secret has been kept deep within the catacombs of Leviathan that threatens the existence of the immortals, and quite possibly the entire world.

One woman named Macallan Orsel, a young genetic scientist in New York, discovers she is descended from a group of immortals that rebelled against Leviathan and are now waging a civil war around the globe. As the immortal war spills into the realm of mortal man, Macallan realizes that she holds the key to stopping the battle and bringing peace to Leviathan. But a clandestine government agency called The Blackdoor Group is trying to exterminate the immortal population and has identified Macallan as their critical target.

  • A highly advanced submarine called the Hei Ten Shi leaves China on a secret mission to deliver an otherworldly cargo to the Mariana Trench in the South Pacific. But when something goes mysteriously wrong, the clandestine ship is discovered by patrolling U.S. Naval forces aboard the SSN Dakota which detect the ship's unusual acoustic signature. But before Dakota can investigate further, the Hei Ten Shi explodes. One year later, a CIA operative named Whitt Roberts is called down to a highly classified division of the CIA known as The Blackdoor Group. He has been charged with investigating the disappearance of the SSN Dakota and the unexplained illness still plaguing its crew. But the Blackdoor Chief knows more than he's letting on, and soon has Whitt deployed on a much more dangerous mission.

  • A young woman named Macallan Orsel is a genetic scientist living in New York City. She and her research partner James Saltzer are searching to the answer to human longevity. While working in her laboratory, she is urgently called to come to the bedside of her ailing grandmother Amelia Orsel who has been suffering from a mysterious disease causing her to experience strange hallucinations and hear voices calling to her. She keeps repeating the word "Leviathan" which has no meaning to Macallan. After watching her grandmother fall asleep, Macallan decides to spend the night in her grandmother's grand apartment and during the night makes an astounding discovery.

  • Macallan awakes in her grandmother's apartment and realizes she is late to teach her class at Rockefeller University. She rushes to campus but meets a strange doctor along the way that says he is treating Macallan's ailing grandmother. He also claims to have knowledge about Leviathan. But before he can explain, Macallan is kidnapped by four individuals that claim to be immortal. These immortals are part of a community known as Leviathan that desperately need Macallan's help to find something called The Key. When she rushes back to tell her partner James Saltzer what has happened, she makes a horrible discovery.

  • After finding her boyfriend dead and being accused of murder, Macallan flees New York City and heads towards Alaska where the Leviathan Group has sent her. But disobeying the immortal's instructions, Macallan chooses to journey to the port city of Homer, instead of Anchorage where she was instructed to go. There she finds the Hail Mary, a dilapidated salvage boat captained by Jeffery Tulley and his First Mate Oberlin St. Clair who are down-on-their-luck treasure hunters. After reluctantly agreeing to help Macallan find a shipwreck called the Cedar Elm, an assassination team arrives at the harbor and launches a massive assault on the Hail Mary driving Macallan, Tulley and Oberlin out to sea in the middle of a dangerous storm.

  • Macallan and Tulley assemble what’s left of the Hail Mary’s damaged reconnaissance gear to make a run at the Cedar Elm, a mysterious shipwreck that has been detected in several different locations. Seinshun has told Macallan that the key to saving her grandmother’s life lies within the wreck. In the meantime, the immortals in Sutton Manor are desperate to locate Macallan since she went undercover several days ago.

  • Oberlin awakes from a chemically induced fog to find himself tied up in an abandoned oil rig. A strange voice begins interrogating and torturing him. The person wants to know one thing: Where is Macallan Orsel? Macallan and Tulley are badly injured by the sudden explosion on the Cedar Elm. They find themselves trapped in a dead sub that is upside down wedged beside a deep overhang in the ocean canyons. The positioning of the sub makes using the emergency lift bags impossible, and not enough power remains to attempt other rescue protocols. But despite their dire predicament, a far deadlier threat lies waiting for them in the surface.

  • Macallan activates the communications device secretly given to her by Anton and Othello. The pair immediately rush to her aid and rescue her and Tulley from freezing to death in the Gulf of Alaska. During the flight, Macallan examines the sarcophagus, which represents the supposed Key that the immortals have been searching for. The sarcophagus opens to reveal a cavity inside into which Macallan climbs. Once inside, she finds her body transformed as her recessed immortal genes become activated and she becomes a full-fledged member of Leviathan.

I've listened up through Chapter 10 so far. I've really enjoyed it for the most part. The writing has been tight and effective. The cliffhanger in the minisub was very well done. Mr. Laputka has a well-developed talent. But... The flashback to Merry Old England was awful. Dialogue was painfully ...
Finally! I've heard that season 2 of this stellar story is finished and is being released. If it's half as good as season one we're in for a treat. Yay!
An epic podcast with a brilliant plot, great narration and an amazing cast! An audio drama (rather than a "mere" audio book) indeed. Thank you, Christof, and the entire LC team and cast for all the work you have done to provide your listeners with so much high-class entertainment! I ...
I very much enjoyed season one and look forward to season two. The story, voice acting, and production quality were brilliant. I am having fun with this. But if Mr. Laputka has a single file with the full text, I would love to know the total count on his use ...
@Arioch Morningstar- I don't consider myself to be an 'audiophile' but I do know what you mean, and I'm not overly bothered however, I have spoken to Christof in person and once the second season has been completed, he and Nobi will be going back and 'remastering' season 1, fixing ...
@Arioch Morningstar - i definately have to agree with you there - ive done my fair share of audio work over the years - both in studio and live work, production and generalm assitance, and you are indeed correct. but yer also right that 80 percent of listeners wont be ...
Leviathan Chronicles is certainly an engaging story, but I was unable to even finish listening to the third episode. And I *really* wanted to because of all of the great things I've heard about this "unbelievable" audio drama. The producers succeed at creating a 'big budget' sound, but unfortunately, they've ...
I agree with pretty much everything said so far - the production values are great, and as someone who has worked with sound a great deal over the years, it's not too easy to impress me. My main problem is the writing in terms of certain scientific facts (as mentioned ...
Sometimes I just wanted to scream....SHOOT HIM! I know that advancing the plot required that characters make certain bone-headed choices (like a trained operative would ever leave a receipt for train tickets behind), but how many times was Whit in the crosshairs and one character or another didn't just SHOOT ...
Just finished listening, and while I was very impressed overall, I did have one part that kept haunting me throughout the entire book. Everytime one of the characters became injured, it seemed that it did not bother them after the immidiate problem. This did not just happen with the immortals, ...
