Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Good for a first novel"

    I had a hard time getting into this book. The second half was better than the first so that was good! The narration was well done. I don't have any specific complaints or compliments about the book. Just a decently entertaining novel.

    I enjoyed how the author incorporated the idea of sirens and see and unexpected evolution of ancient animals.

    "Suspenseful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is like Jules Verne meets HG Wells.


    What about Sean Mangan’s performance did you like?

    Excellent voices for the women. A lot of times male readers do a bad job with the women's voices.


    Any additional comments?

    Good read. Kept me interested and suspenseful.

    "A good listen"

    I enjoyed the story and the adventure. Really liked all of the detailed background information. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that some of the scenes and things they encountered were a bit grousoome - but I will continue to listen to his other books.

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    Story
    "Jurassic Park in the Dark"

    This is a fast action thriller that if you are going to enjoy you must remember that it is fiction not science. When a group of scientists and special ops officers go missing in the artic while on a discovery mission, another and the next best crew are sent after them on a rescue/recovery mission.

    What starts out as a rescue quickly becomes an adventure of survival miles under the ice cap. The scientists and soldiers alike are amazed and horrified by the entities they encounter, many who may have, most likely, not seen the light of day for eons. Jurassic Park in the Dark is what it reminded me of, a very primitive place where man is not the top of the food chain.

    If you can check science at the door and open your mind to a 007 like character, this expedition may be for you.

    "Endless exposition"
    Any additional comments?

    Typical Hollywood-inspired thriller. After an hour of exposition I started skipping ahead, the pattern did not alter and I returned the book.

    "awesome book!"

    I know some people don't care for these books, but I like how much research the author does on the subjects in his books and compiles it into a outstanding series of books.

    Story
    "Not for everyone, but very much for me."

    This book deals with paranormal events that are then explained using "science". This is in my opinion both where the book is at its strongest and it falls a bit short.
    The group of scientists does an incredible job at explaining everything and makes it sound very realistic and believable. At the same time, I had wished that monsters would stay monsters and didn't have to be "shoehorned" into realism.

    The characters where quite well written I'd say. They might not be the most unique characters but they all stood out from each other and none really felt cliche or generic.

    I really liked Sean's reading. He's got a nice and clear voice. I had no trouble understanding him as a non-native English speaker. He also added a slight voice to different characters. Just enough so that you knew who was talking, but not enough that it'd fit in a children's puppet show.

    Greig Beck has certainly gained my attention. I'll very likely go through this entire series of every book is like this. From other reviews it seems like they just get better, but that's not something I can tell you for certain.
