Bloodthirsty monsters are emerging from the Antarctic ice, the same creatures that once stalked the battlegrounds of World War I. Back then, a group of soldiers valiantly fought off the beasts—and were never seen again. A century later, an elite military squad stands between civilization and the mysterious return of the enemy.
Captain Charlie Weller thinks she's seen everything—until a man crawls out onto the ice, barely alive and muttering about a place called Illyria. Lysander Davies claims to be the descendant of one of the missing soldiers. He insists the monsters are actually gentle creatures, under the control of beings far, far more dangerous...
Drawn to the stranger, Charlie believes his stories and agrees to help him. But they both know nothing can come of their feelings for one another, for the only way to save earth is for Lysander to return to Illyria and close the rift behind him, forever...

The narrator was horrible. I hate to admit it but a female narrator cannot do a male voice. If it wasnt for the horrible accents the narrator gave to people, i wouldnt have been able to tell who was who. The story itself could have been alot better. there needed to be more back story to the rift, characters and the other side. too much time was spent in the ice base and not enough time about the rift, the enimies and the other creatures. this could have been easily made into a series.
it makes me alot more hesitant to buy a book that has a female narrator.
you couldnt hear the different expressions that each character experienced. it was like she was struggling to just keep their voices the same and was unable to express anything else.
huge disappointment. the summary of the book sounded awesome. but after 5 minutes of listening to the narrator i was already disappointed.
