Publisher's Summary

Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than 70 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.

Scooby Doo With Scarier Monsters

This is a fun book with a great premise, and some seriously creepy monsters.

It's also kind of repetitive, because essentially, the bulk of the book is one huge chase scene with people getting separated, finding each other, and losing each other again, against the same background, over and over.

Essentially, it's kind of like a Scooby Doo episode, where everyone's running through a haunted house, and Velma disappears, then they go looking for her and then Shaggy disappears but Velma pops out from behind the secret door and now it's time to look for Shaggy, and they find him, but Scooby and Fred have disappeared.

The first half of the book is totally great, the second half is a little draggy. The narrator was good, and all in all, I enjoyed Ice Hunt, and would certainly recommend it.

Great Book!

This audiobook was awesome! Action-packed, interest-grabbing, heart-stopping, breath-taking.....there was never a moment in this book that didn't keep me thinking and trying to figure things out. Surprise moment very well planned and executed. Characters are very realistic and easy to relate to....I got so into the story, that I couldn't wait to see what was gonna happen next.
