Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking discovery at the top of the world...
A terrifying collision between modern science and Native American legend . . .
An electrifying new thriller from New York Times best-selling author Lincoln Child.Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle lies Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. But for paleoecologist Evan Marshall and a small group of fellow scientists, an expedition to the Zone represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the effects of global warming. Everything about the expedition changes, however, with an astonishing find. On a routine exploration of a glacial ice cave, the group discovers an enormous ancient animal, encased in solid ice. The media conglomerate sponsoring their research immediately intervenes and arranges the ultimate spectacle: the creature will be cut from the ice, thawed, and revealed live on television. Despite dire warnings from the local Native American village, and the scientific concerns of Marshall and his team, the "docudrama" plows ahead...until the scientists make one more horrifying discovery. The beast is no regular specimen; it may be an ancient killing machine. And they may be premature in believing it dead.In this riveting new thriller, Lincoln Child weaves together a stunning Arctic landscape, a terrifying mythic creature, and a pervasive mood of chaos and fear. With Terminal Freeze, Child demonstrates why he has become a major best-selling author, and why his novels electrify and enthrall so many.

a gourment meal for us lovers of horror fiction

Lincoln Child always delivers. A great story taking place in an arctic environment, which always adds gothic overtones, you can't beat that.
The Reader is excellent, too.
I listened to it overnight in less than 20 hours. In the wee hours, I had to turn it off because when you get sleepy you start to miss the story. So I turned it off, even though I did not have the will to, by myself. I think it was about 4am.
If you are a horror fan, or a fan of Douglas Preston and Child's "Penderghast" stories, you will love this one, too.
Audible has a good number of their audiobooks. Unfortunately a good number of them are 'abridged', which I will not buy. No one should buy abridged audiobooks. Why only get 'parts and pieces of the story?

Child's poorest effort

Lincoln Child suffered from writers' block when he penned this poor example of a SciFi novel. I've read all his books including many he coauthored with Douglas Preston... all of which were thrilling page turners. This book, however, fell far short of his usual excellent plots and interesting characters. This time around you're offered a choice of protagonists who when they inadvertently get in the way of the monster, elicit not as much as a yawn from the survivors (or you dear reader). The "monster" is an equally silly creature (or apparition?) that exists (or doesn't?). The conclusion offers a ridiculous SciFi channel ending which might have been salvaged if everyone had died. But one bad effort from Lincoln Child should be excused. I'd give him an overall rating of 4+ for his past efforts. Deep Storm is noteable in this regard.
