5.0 out of 5 starsA white-knuckle read!
Reviewed in the United States on November 13, 2017
I am a long time fan of Phillip Tomasso's work. When I heard he was writing a sci-fi horror novel I couldn't wait to read it. The worst part is I devoured the book in a couple of sittings! It was non-stop action. The book mostly takes place on Neptune's surface. A diamond mining operation gone awry. There are hostile aliens, and space pirates. Para-military battles, and amazing characters. I cannot wait for -- and sincerely hope -- there is another installment in this space saga! Tomasso has created a world that has endless possibilities!
5.0 out of 5 starsImpressive and entertaining.. Highly recommend!

This is my first read by this author, and definitely not my last! The description was so good I had to try this book, and I was thrilled that it didn't disappoint. The writing is smart, quick, and descriptive. The characters are strong, instantly likable, and well developed. The plot is riveting and fast-paced. I couldn't stop reading! Through the twists and turns, you begin to root for these teams and individuals who are fighting for their lives against corporate greed and terrifying circumstances in an unthinkably harsh environment. I could see the planet and conditions the author created in horrifying and fascinating detail. I love it when a book transports you so skillfully! Great read, very highly recommend!
This book was so thrilling that I couldn't put it down! The crew of the Eclipse is sent on a mission to check on the distress signal sent from the colony on the planet Neptune where diamonds are being mined.They find a lot more on Neptune than they get expected! Don't miss this exciting book!

Reviewed in the United States on December 30, 2017
I have been reading this book on and off for several weeks. Phillip Tomasso starts this novel with action right out of the gate and it never stops. The author's back stories for the characters from a dystopian society in the future, however not far enough in the future to not be able to relate to the characters, are excellent. This book is Scifi/Horror genre. I wanted to finish reading this book for this review so when I had time I began reading it about 1:30 AM last night, picking up where I had left off and I realized that time had flown by through sheer involvement with the book and it was now 5:30 in the morning when I finally completed it and then went to bed. The action packed last chapters kept me so engrossed I had literally stayed awake all night reading. Tomasso has a great talent for writing about the details going on with all of the characters in their thoughts, dialogue, and the action. His descriptive writing is excellent. Looking at this from a writer's perspective, I feel that he puts a great deal of thought and energy into his ideas for each chapter in the book and the actions that are going to occur between characters.
I enjoyed this book and I will be reading more books from Phillip Tomasso in the future. After reading Absolute Zero, I was researching the other novels he has written and will be buying them in the future.
Read six pages before I gave up. The planet Neptune is a gas giant and may not have a surface as such. If it did it would be so deep in the atmosphere that the incredibly low temperature and colossal pressure would destroy anything made by man so there can be no diamond mining. It is also so far from the sun that it's effect is negligable yet somehow in the story it can affect the planets surface. This book is science fiction, fiction it is but science it is not. Mr Tomasso you are a lazy author please try a little research next time.
