Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking discovery at the top of the world...
A terrifying collision between modern science and Native American legend . . .
An electrifying new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Lincoln Child.

Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle lies Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. But for paleoecologist Evan Marshall and a small group of fellow scientists, an expedition to the Zone represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the effects of global warming.

Everything about the expedition changes, however, with an astonishing find. On a routine exploration of a glacial ice cave, the group discovers an enormous ancient animal, encased in solid ice. The media conglomerate sponsoring their research immediately intervenes and arranges the ultimate spectacle: the creature will be cut from the ice, thawed, and revealed live on television. Despite dire warnings from the local Native American village, and the scientific concerns of Marshall and his team, the "docudrama" plows ahead...until the scientists make one more horrifying discovery. The beast is no regular specimen; it may be an ancient killing machine. And they may be premature in believing it dead.

In this riveting new thriller, Lincoln Child weaves together a stunning Arctic landscape, a terrifying mythic creature, and a pervasive mood of chaos and fear. With Terminal Freeze, Child demonstrates why he has become a major best-selling author, and why his novels electrify and enthrall so many.

    "I like Lincoln Child"

    Another very interesting book by Mr. Child, I pretty much enjoy all his books and this one is no exception. The story was interesting and the ending actually ends not the usually what happen next thoughts going through the mind as you close the cover on it.
    I'd recommend the book to anyone who likes this kind of read/listen.

    "Beware the monster from he ice!"

    I found that this book reminded me very much like the 1951 movie: The Thing from Another World; with the setting of it being set in the ice and that there was a monster lurking around. It also reminded me a little of a slasher movie with how there were people mysteriously being gruesomely murdered. I think that this would make a good movie if it had the right director. Terminal Freeze is not an orginal idea but it was a good story and I recommend it

    "Reads like a hollywood movie"

    The narrator does a decent job. I like him reading other works too. But the material is mediocre. It reads like a Hollywood sci-fi with predictability and lacking much suspense or tension. For my one-credit per month I think I could have skipped this and checked it out from the library as some summer-fluff reading instead.

    "Perfect mix of science and myth"

    Scott weaves together a believable story of science in the begining and then stretches it into myth that pulls you into the story. One can identify with many of the characters and big business types as well as the sterotype navtive's spirit world...the not so good, greedy, and the saints. Great read!!

    "Edge of your seat."

    This story kept me on the edge of my seat just like of Child's stories do. High intensity and panic at all times.

    "A good listen, but not one of Child's best"

    The story moved slowly and was basically a rehash of the '50's movie classic "The Thing". It was pretty predictable and I found it difficult to maintain my interest through the story.

    "Disappointing and obvious conclusion"

    Child's book Deep Storn is a brilliant scifi novel that is hard to put down. Terminal Freeze is just one big disappointment. It's more an attempt at horror than scifi. Unfortunately the build up is poorly done. The plot is way too obvious. It just lacks any depth. Hope the next one is more like Deep Storn.

    "Like fantast/sci-fi?"

    This story is easy to listen to and has good characters and a reasonably plausable plot for a fantasy/sci-fi story. The arctic event is another great one, if you this is your type of book. Add it!

    "Entertaining brain candy"

    What Barbara in Elgin said although not everybody dies, and there's an entertaining twist at the end. Borrow this from your local library for free - probably not worth the $$ to own.
