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. If the unidentified substance proves to be an energy source, every country in the world will want to know about it. Once inserted into the cave system, they don?t find any survivors. Primeval hieroglyphs hint at an ancient civilisation, and an ancient danger. 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.… (més)

Technothriller gun-porn for people who like ancient monsters.

Does it sound like it's up your alley? Then good, this one's pretty decent at what it does. Plenty of action, some political commentary, but what it really has a lot of is super-competence and/or super-powers for its main character.

Alex is a freak of nature thanks to that bullet in his brain. Woo!

Now let's keep him in charge of his team of crack commandos and watch as the scientists they're protecting die in horrible ways deep in the ice. Woo!

Like I said, if this is your cup of tea, it's pretty decent.

If you like more ideas in your SF or you want more magic in your gun-fantasy or if you want sheer terror in your horror, you might want to look a little further afield. This book covers a lot of rather a lot of familiar territory. Even the main characters fit the mold perfectly. There's not a lot of surprises to behold. At all.

But it's Gun-Porn! Woo! It's all about setting the right expectations. :) ( )

A little like Andy McDermott and Matthew Reilly. Fun read. ( )

Not bad at all. Alex Hunter, badass marine (or HAWC’s as they are referred to in the book) with a interesting twist making him a bit more than a “ordinary” commando solder. This caught my interest fairly early on in the book.

They are sent on a rescue mission deep under the Antarctic ice where the discover…well you have to read the book to learn what they discovered but I found it quite a good read and not exactly what I had expected. The team consists not only of Alex’s fellow commandos but also of a bunch of researchers out of which one of them is the typical tiresome asshole that you just hoped would get “disposed of”. Preferably as painfully as possible.

Just to complicate things further the author throws in a competing Russian command team lead by a sadistic psychopath with a grudge against Alex. Actually I felt this was a bit over the top. The rest of the story was good enough to keep my interest.

The basic story is a fairly classical one of team-goes-into-confined-area-not-all-of-them-comes-out. As a matter of fact, quite a few of them doesn’t come out. The story is well written though and has enough interesting elements to not give you a yet-another-one-of-those feelings when reading it.

I am fairly sure that I will give, at least, the next one in the series a go as well.

Just what I was looking for. Escape literature.

Just think jurassic park meets arctic under ice monsters. Not sure how to score. Well done for what it is. ( )
