The Event Group is faced with an impossible mission in the latest heart-pounding hit from the New York Times best-selling author of Carpathian.
In 267,000 BCE the continent was its own world, untouched by the planetwide catastrophe that ended the reign of the dinosaurs over 65 million years before. A traveler arrives in the jungles of this ancient world who will fight to survive carnivorous creatures in a land never meant for humankind.
In another time and in a land far distant, men and women struggle to recover from the loss of so many of their own in a battle. Inside of this group, Colonel Jack Collins has summoned the best of the best from the most secretive organization in the United States government, the Event Group, to help him in his quest. The new mission is to recover one of their own: to bring home a lost soldier from a world that existed in the distant past.
To accomplish the impossible, Department 5656, the Event Group, will have to travel to a place and time far removed from their own world - almost 300,000 years in the past. The trail to find the technology to accomplish time travel will be ripe with treachery and murder as the group fights to bring home their friend, Captain Carl Everett, a man who was lost in a battle to save the world. This will be a fight that, if lost, will change the very history of the planet and thus our present.

overall this was an interesting read but I wished there had been more character sub.plots
Richard Poe for one, who always brings it. Just the overall experience of the Event Group, and the interplay of the characters, is always a good time.
The descriptions of the Antarctic were compelling, esp. the wildlife.
Everything. He is consistently one of the most professional and listenable performers on Audible. His reading of the Russians, and the Frenchmen, are compelling.
The epilogue was damn good work.
OK so they use the words" a**" and "frozen" far , FAR too often ( not offensive, just tiresome )> Not sure the use of "rock" was correct either. There were more than the usual number of little hiccups and such, and it could have been edited better.
That said, it is a strong contributor to the series, and well worth the credit!
I'm a Cardiac Anesthesiologist with two college aged children. I used 2 check my kid's books for appropriateness & now enjoy those books 2.
I always prefer paper for every story. The surroundings and performer place their interpretation upon the story; impeding my own imagination.
Now if you can't read, listen!
No. The event series is not going to make anyone cry. There will be chuckles and "great jobs" though.
The series is fun. I enjoy the writer. He has grown the characters in fantastic ways. They have changed as people should after their experiences.
The Event Group have become dear friends with whom I have spent many pleasurable hours. I have read the entire series and am a devoted fan. The writing is intelligent and the pace moves swiftly enough to keep the reader's attention. I hope David Golman continues to write Event books for many years to come.
Have not read print version.
Carl and his 'chickens'.
His narration was engaging, characters had personality.
What's under the ice?
I certainly hope there is another book coming out in the Event series. I listened to all from book 1 to Traveler. Going through major Event withdrawal. I read/listen a lot. By far and away the BEST series ever. What a great series for several movies! If they make a movie I vote for Alec Baldwin as Jack.
