Publisher's Summary

IT HAS SURVIVED.

At a research station in Antarctica, scientists discovered a strange and ancient organism. They thought they could study it, classify it, control it. They couldn't.

IT HAS THRIVED

Six months ago, a secret paramilitary team called Unit 51 was sent to the station. They thought the creature was dead, the nightmare was over. It wasn't.

IT HAS EVOLVED

In a Mexican temple, archaeologists uncover the remains of a half-human hybrid. They believe it is related to the creature in Antarctica, a dark thing of legend that is still alive-and still evolving. They believe it needs a new host to feed, to mutate, to multiply. They're right. And they're next. And the human race might just be headed for extinction...

Suspenseful

Enjoyed the story line. I initially thought I wouldn't just because of how out there the story was, but it grew on me.

And We Thought They Were Mad 1st Time!

Excellent book. Quite a few returning characters. I have only two books by Michael McBride, but if the first in this series are any indication of the quality to come, then but them now!

Also, buy the Audible version of this if you can. I highly recommend it.

Incredibly boring

I had high hopes for this book but was very disappointed. The book was really boring. Also, there was just too much bouncing around between characters for me to keep things straight. Did not finish book.

It's the end of the world and I don't care

This is book two in this series with threats to the human race, alien creatures, evil terrorists. The stakes are pretty high... and yet... I find myself not caring. I felt like this after book one and chalked it up to lots of setup for the next volume. Unfortunately, I was no more enthusiastic after listening to the second volume. I am disappointed. I really wanted to enjoy this story, but it is just not pulling me in. I think I am done with the series, which is something I typically don't do.

The most annoying part is that I can't really tell you why I don't care for it.

I hope those of you who do give this series a try really enjoy it. But I'm afraid I won't be joining you. Good luck.

Bad narrator

Couldn’t get into the story because I couldn’t get past the horrible narration. It’s so sad that the author spends so much time and effort into a book and ruins all his efforts with bad narrator choice.

Not For Me

Premise sounded good, but the book didn't really engage me. It starts off with the creature (in the introduction) and then drags on chapter after chapter with the group trying not to get eaten. There is some ancillary plot items thrown in, but none of it for me was suspenseful. Sorry. It just wasn't a thrill ride like some of the original Lincoln Child or Robin Cook or Michael Crichton.

poor quality

The audio on this book is the worst. it is hard to understand and makes following the book almost impossible. Very disappointed in my purchase.
