Publisher's Summary

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. Accompanying the team is an assortment of researchers, including petrobiologist Aimee Weir. If the unidentified substance proves to be an energy source, every country in the world will want to know about it - some would even kill for it. Once inserted into the cave system, they don't find any survivors - not even a trace of their bodies. Primeval hieroglyphs hint at an ancient civilisation, and an ancient danger. Spectres of the dead haunt the tunnels. 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.

Jules Verne meets X-man.

I don't know when or why I purchased this audio book. I just found it in my library. ?

One fine day I started listening...

It started out (aside from unnecessary preface by author - I advise skipping that!), as a somewhat interesting adventure story with a fantastical creature element and a government agent back-story. All was okay until the last half when the story lagged and the narrator sounded like he was drinking.

By the end of the story I was no longer able to suspend disbelief (eg.,takes place Antarctica), and the plot held no more surprises.

Verdict: skip it.

Great story and lots of action

What did you love best about Beneath the Dark Ice?

I liked the character of Arcadian and his struggle with his darker, more primitive nature as he tries to protect his group.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, though sometimes it got almost tiring as the group kept running and hiding from the same creature.

Which scene was your favorite?

I really liked the ending....but if I describe it I'd be giving it away.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, just an enjoyable adventure story

Any additional comments?

The story is similar to James Rollins', "Subterranean" but it had some different twists and turns. I was very glad the author didn't extend the Russian "bad guy" encounter any further, because the drama with the creature was enough to keep my interest. So many "action/adventure" authors overdo the conflict by inserting too many antagonists which actually takes away from their stories, for example David L Golemon's books. My only complaint with this novel, is that some of the run, jump, hide scenes could have been shorter. I didn't quite get the need for the epilogue, which was out of context with the ending.I had read this in paperback a few years ago and hearing it on audio was even better Very good narrator.

Loved it

I loved everything about this. I discovered Grieg because I was after audio books narrated by Sean Mangan and I wasn't disappointed.
Anyone who loves Matthew Reilly will love Greig.
