Publisher's Summary

From Gillian Anderson, star of The X-Files, and New York Times best-selling coauthor Jeff Rovin comes the second book in the thrilling paranormal series Earthend Saga that began with A Vision of Fire, which Marie Claire called "addictive!"

After uncovering a mystical link to the ancient civilization of Galderkhaan, child psychologist Caitlin O'Hara is left with strange new powers. Suddenly she can heal her young patients with her mind and see things from other places and other times. But as she learns more about her powers, she also realizes that someone is watching her, perhaps hunting her - and using her son to do it.

Meanwhile Mikel Jasso, a field agent for a mysterious research organization, is searching for Galderkhaani ruins in Antarctica. After falling down a crevasse, he discovers the entire city has been preserved under ice and that the mysterious stone artifacts he's been collecting are not as primitive as he thought. As Mikel and Caitlin work to uncover the mysteries of the Galderkhaani, they realize that the person hunting Caitlin and the stones may be connected in ways they never knew possible.

Slightly Befuzzled, still I liked it

Not quite as easy to follow as the 1st book, & not to give out any spoilers - I do wonder about the ending... what really happened.

The numerous names of the characters I think made it all the more confusing. "Modern" characters in the last book, with odd names, were easier to follow... but this book had far too many Ancient & Moderns with too many odd names... so I feel like I needed to write it all down to follow. That's really the only thing that was a downside, except for the uncertainty of the lead character in the Epilogue. I think it was done on purpose to allow the listener to write their own ending, which I indeed will.

Overall, a good listen. I wonder what the author plans to do next... oh, wait.. yup, she'll be returning to the small screen, yay :)

OMG!!! What a Sequel!!!

Where does A Dream of Ice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the best!!

What did you like best about this story?

I really got into the story while listening to Book 1. This book drew me more in. I love the characters & how in depth the author's took the story.

What about Gillian Anderson’s performance did you like?

This book would be amazing anyway, but with Ms. Anderson narrating, the story really comes to life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I don't even know. I'm not very good with this question. The series would make good movies.

Any additional comments?

I love Gillian Anderson. I've been following her career, watching her shows for years. It was really a no brainer for me to buy her books. I was hoping I would like them. I LOVE them!!! This is one of the best series I've listened to/read. If you are a fan of this genre, you MUST listen to these books!!!

Apocalypse saved

Memorable story by former X-Files star Gillian Anderson! At times hard to follow if you are trying to multitask, but a good listen nonetheless. I know have to check & see if there is a book 3!

So Glad I Read It After All 3 Written!

I had to read all 3: boom, boom, boom. If one could be said of an audiobook, 'I couldn't put it down!' One could say it of these books.

Captivating! Had to get to end.

Gillian's pacing and vocalizations create a moving script that comes alive visually. I could not put it down. The final saga cannot come soon enough.

new to audiobooks

I have always turned my nose up at audiobooks and ebooks when they first came out. I love the comfort of a book and flipping the pages. I go through phases where I read a lot or not at all. I preordered this book and got a few chapters in and couldn't get into it. I put it aside for a while and wanted to try it again. I think her first book was the best so far in the trilogy.

I got the audiobook it hopes to get more into this story and hearing it in Gillian's voice makes it a different experience and made me really like the idea of audiobooks now.
