Publisher's Summary

THE WORLD RACES TO CLAIM A NEW CONTINENT...

A phenomenon known as crustal displacement shifts the Earth's crust, repositioning continents and causing countless deaths. In the wake of the global catastrophe, the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions. But Antarctica, freshly thawed and blooming, has emerged as a new hope. Rather than wage a world war no nation can endure, the leading nations devise a competition, a race to the center of Antarctica, with the three victors dividing the continent.

It is within this race that Mirabelle Whitney, one of the few surviving experts on the continent, grouped with an American special forces unit, finds herself. But the dangers awaiting the team are far worse than feared; beyond the sour history of a torn family, beyond the nefarious intentions of their human enemies, beyond the ancient creatures reborn through anhydrobiosis--there are the Nephilim.

...ONLY TO FIND IT ALREADY TAKEN.

THE STORY CONTINUES!

If you enjoy Antarktos Rising, be sure to check out The Antarktos Saga, also by Jeremy Robinson. The first two books in this brand new series are prequels to AR. The third book parallels AR. And the last two books finish both story lines as the merge.

The Antarktos Saga, in order:

  • THE LAST HUNTER - DESCENT
  • THE LAST HUNTER - PURSUIT
  • THE LAST HUNTER - ASCENT
  • THE LAST HUNTER - LAMENT (coming 2012)
  • THE LAST HUNTER - ONSLAUGHT (coming 2012)
  • PRAISE FOR ANTARKTOS RISING:

    "Jeremy Robinson is an original and exciting voice. Antarktos Rising has just the right blend of menace and normality---a tale full of intrigue, treachery, and a wealth of secrets. A good old-fashioned suspense story set in one of the most desolate places of earth. It fires on all cylinders in a smart, taut thrill." (Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Venetian Betrayal and The Charlemagne Pursuit)

    "Apocalypse comes to Antarctica. Jeremy Robinson balances Biblical speculation upon a dagger-edge of suspense and adventure. With Antarktos Rising, Robinson opens a new dark continent of terror. Trespass at your own risk." (James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Black Order and The Judas Strain)

    "An awesome journey into the beating heart of a legend. Jules Verne would be proud." (Stel Pavlou, bestselling author of Decipher and Gene)

    "A fast-paced chiller that delves into new possibilities about our future...and past." (Steve Alten, best-selling author of Meg and The Shell Game)

    "How do you find an original story idea in the crowded action-thriller genre? Two words: Jeremy Robinson. Antarktos Rising combines history, science and myth about Antarctica to create a jaw-dropping concept so real it will have you Googling like mad to learn more after the story is finished." (Scott Sigler, bestselling author of Ancestor and Earthcore)

      Story
      "There is so much going on in this book"

      There is so much going on in this book it can get a bit overwhelming.Professor Merel Clark believes he is right about the Antarctica ice covering ancient fossils. It is a fact that Antarctica is a continent, unlike the North Polar region which is all ice. He sets up camp in a valley and searches for signs he is right. Merel is also a devout christian. Prayer is part of his evening ritual. He never goes to sleep without praying to God.

      Mira Whitney is a wild life photographer. She has traveled all over the world for her pictures and is well known and respected in her field. Mira has been on several excursions with Pro. Clark in Antarctica. After the apocalyptic crust shift the earth is devastated by tidal waves, volcanoes, searing heat waves and deadly cold. Billions of people have died. One continent however has changed. The frozen Antarctica has become a lush jungle teaming with unknown flora and fauna.

      This is one of the best end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it thrillers I have ever read. It has everything, devastation, treachery, lost love, found love, horror, monsters and even daemons. All this and it is totally believable when blended with science facts. I liked the anhydrous idea. I’ve seen nature shows that document desert bloom and Africa, when the rains start, frogs and other life re-hydrate.

      The characters in this epic work of “fiction” are very well developed. You want them to succeed and feel the loss when one of them dies. You even feel sorry for some of the bad guys. The dialogue is not overly technical, easy to follow and carries the story with ease.

      If you like Cussler, Rollins, Ludlum and others like them you will LOVE Jeremy Robinson. A must read hardcover or audio book for all thriller/apocalyptic/adventure fans.

      I was enthralled with the narration. I listened almost straight through. R. C. Bray really got into the story. Brought it to life. No problem with the production either. Every word was clear and precise. No static or jumps. Very smooth.

      Audiobook provided for review by the narrator.

      "Another Great Adventure"
      If you could sum up Antarktos Rising in three words, what would they be?

      Fast, exciting, and suspenseful


      What did you like best about this story?

      I love how historical elements can get wrapped in to a work of fiction


      What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      I love the interpretation on the voices he carries out to bring the story to life


      Who was the most memorable character of Antarktos Rising and why?

      Dr. Merrill Clark, because his knowledge of the Bible and the Nephilim helped to drive the story and keep it on track.

      Story
      "Freakin' loved it!!!"
      Would you listen to Antarktos Rising again? Why?

      Not really, but only because it isn't that kind of book, but man it was still good the first time!


      What other book might you compare Antarktos Rising to and why?

      Some of the Lincoln Child books have a similar style.


      Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      No this was my first one, but won't be the last.


      Who was the most memorable character of Antarktos Rising and why?

      Mirander.

      "Awesome."

      This book works as a stand alone and also as apart of a The Last Hunter series, It was really fun being able to hear the other side of Last Hunter and really interesting. I think it was very cleverly done. As always the characters are well written and putting it down was tough. R.C.Bray did such a great job bringing the characters to life.

      Story
      "Not a Story for Christians"
      What disappointed you about Antarktos Rising?

      Up front, I acknowledge that I researched this author prior to beginning to listen to this story. Therefore, I knew the author's beliefs and stance from the beginning.

      Overall, I was disappointed by the author's use of profanity and of lustful statements to tell a story. The author claims to be a "Christian" (see Jeremy Robinson's responses to FAQ on his webpage); therefore, I gave his story a try (plus I enjoy science fiction). Unfortunately, by the author's own story writing and claims on his webpage, he is comfortable walking in and being associated with the world and it's ideologies while proclaiming to be a follower of Christ. This attitude goes directly against what the Word says and apostles teach (1 John 2:15-17; Ephesians 5; 1 Corinthians 10).


      What do you think your next listen will be?

      Nothing from Jeremy Robinson, unfortunately.


      Which scene was your favorite?

      I didn't get far enough into the story to claim a "favorite scene"


      What character would you cut from Antarktos Rising?

      I didn't get far enough into the story to fully, completely identify the characters.


      Any additional comments?

      I know the author makes known his ideology and beliefs; however, the author needs to seriously examine himself and test his life in light of claiming to be a follower of Christ (2 Corinthians 13).

      "A great fast paced story narrated brilliantly"
      What did you like most about Antarktos Rising?

      The build up was well timed along with the realisation of what had happened. Then the journey. I don't want to add to much so as not to ruin it for others.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      The book has multiple characters all with there own strong personalities, it is hard to choose one when 6 stand out.


      Which scene did you most enjoy?

      I am not going to say as it would ruin it for others


      Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      Just the enjoyment of the story


      Any additional comments?

      Either read it or listen to it, it is a great book.
