When a plane crashes into the Antarctic ice, exposing a massive cave beneath, a rescue and research team is dispatched. Twenty-four hours later, all contact is lost. Captain Alex Hunter and his highly trained squad of commandos are fast tracked to the hot zone to find out what went wrong - and to follow up the detection of a vast underground reservoir. Accompanying the team is an assortment of researchers, including petrobiologist Aimee Weir. If the unidentified substance proves to be an energy source, every country in the world will want to know about it - some would even kill for it. Once inserted into the cave system, they don't find any survivors - not even a trace of their bodies. Primeval hieroglyphs hint at an ancient civilisation, and an ancient danger. Spectres of the dead haunt the tunnels. Within hours, one of the party will die. To bring his team out alive, Alex will need every one of his mysterious abilities beneath the dark ice.

Yes. It is like Jules Verne meets HG Wells.
Excellent voices for the women. A lot of times male readers do a bad job with the women's voices.
Good read. Kept me interested and suspenseful.
This was an okay read. Not fabulous, but it kept my attention. Stupid on my part, but I had a hard time getting past the direct copy from Clive Cussler. The story set up starts hundreds of years in the past . . . Really? . . . Really?
Anyway, I always like stories that take place in exotic places and this was Antarctic, spelunking, and creepy creatures. Stories like this are just great, no-brainer, escape. No high expectation results in a few hours of entertainment.
It is exactly what you expect. Easy to listen to, keeps you entertained! Will definitely check out more from this author.
Yes - I'd like to see how he matures as a writer.
This is an exciting adventure-thriller; plenty of action. Plausible scientific and archaeological theories help the story along as well. Like an action movie with brains.
When the insufferably annoying Dr. was killed. I know it's wrong - but he was such an annoying character.
The story is good, pacing is good - sometimes the dialog seems stilted and simplistic or transitions are sometimes halting. All in all, an above average read. C+ - B-
I love to be scared, does anyone write anything scary anymore? Maybe I have just become numb.
I think I will need a SciFi after this.
Probably, I don't really notice the narrators unless they are really good or really bad, he was average. Maybe the fact that the story was not that great, made him seem not that great.
Yes. I usually don't care for movies that come from books that I have read, but in this case I think a movie version would be a great improvement.
If you are a fan of thrillers or horror on the ice, I think you may be disappointed, I was.
never read the book
