Publisher's Summary

Geology instructor Alex Cave receives the urgent message from a friend in Northern Canada. "The polar ice sheet is mysteriously expanding by thousands of square miles in a matter of minutes!"

He begins a desperate race to find the cause, and joins the crew on board the high-tech research ship Mystic, but Captain Dieter has other plans for the stealthy craft and changes course to an unknown island in the Bering Sea. Dieter expects to find a horde of treasure stashed by the Nazis near the end of WWII, but what Alex discovers is even more incredible than he could ever imagine.

The ice sheet continues expanding at an alarming rate, trapping anything in its path, and will cover the planet in a matter of days! Can Alex find a way to stop the world from entering a new ice age?

Cleaning the Atmosphere

Could it be that one of our ice ages wasn't planned but the work of aliens whose good intentions had been to clear the atmosphere of pollutants? That's the premise of Book 2 of the Alex Cave series. Although it builds on the events in Book 1, these adventures can be read as standalone, since pertinent characters and locations are reintroduced appropriately. A fair amount of Perils of Pauline action leads to an enjoyable frolic through the author's imagination. I am LISTENING to this series [AUDIO] and the superb narration adds to the drama and immediacy of the tale. This story would work well on the wide screen, too.

The Energy Series -a thriller of Energetic Science

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

This audiobook series TOPS my recommendations. It's science and sci fi and a fully developed and delivered diverse plotline.

Have you listened to any of Paul J. McSorley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've only listened to Paul McSorley as he narrates Corkill's books. I listened to him in the first book and will follow him through the series

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent second book in the series. I think Mr Corkill should offer tidbits of the Dead adventure without mentioning the book directly. He explains enough to gleam the highlights, as needed, to relate the characters to one another. The way he mentions the first book is misleading that the books should be read in order. (Except 2 before 3, as it's a continuation). His life in the CIA was pre-Energy and seems to be slowly revealed as the series unfold. <br/>My biggest quirk with the series are the weak female characters who seem to always throw themselves at the men (not just at Alex Cave, but any man). It really deteriorates the otherwise strongly built characters. Thus the missing star. <br/>The moments are brief, but disappointing. <br/>The multiple scenes overlap and strengthen the subplots and plot. <br/>Did I miss the update on Christa? <br/><br/>Mr McSorley is a dynamic narrator choice for this series. His voice complements the author's work. <br/><br/>

Another fine adventure!

Cold Energy is definitely an excellent sequel to Dead Energy! It does a great job continuing some of the plot elements from the first book, while having a well-defined storyline of its own. Each of the main characters are again very likeable, while villainous characters keep you guessing as to what they're up to next. As with book 1, Cold Energy reminds me of the action-adventure style of the early works of Michael Crichton, with details that hint at deeper technical and geological understanding. But, happily, the reader is never bogged down by those details as her/she enjoys the narrative.
