A classic adventure from James Rollins, the author of The Doomsday Key, The Last Oracle, The Judas Strain, Black Order, and other pulse-pounding, New York Times bestselling thrillers, Ice Hunt carries readers to the top of the world, where nothing can survive…except fear.

Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than seventy years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close—and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law. And now, as scientists, soldiers, intelligence operatives, and unsuspecting civilians are drawn into Grendel's lethal vortex, the most extreme measures possible will be undertaken to protect its dark mysteries—because the terrible truths locked behind submerged walls of ice and steel could end human life on Earth.

    This one had action going on almost from the beginning. Of course, there were many impossible situations that the main characters somehow escaped, but it was fun to see how it happened. Didn’t want to put the book down until it was finished.

    I've read a handful of James Rollins books and I think this one might be his best. I've never come across an author that's as skilled as he is at writing action. He's so clear with his descriptions and keeps the scene moving that I feel like I'm right there with the characters. Ice Hunt hit the ground running and didn't let up until the last page. I almost felt exhausted along with the characters that had to keep running from the next danger. There were plenty of emotional connections between the characters as well as inward struggles with themselves that I found myself rooting for nearly everyone in the end. Rollins added enough of his scientific knowledge (which always impresses me) that I learned quite a bit, which I always appreciate. How an author can be so knowledgeable about science and history equally and still create loveable characters is something that amazes me and that I really love about Rollins. Highly recommend taking the time to read Ice Hunt!
