Publisher's Summary

FROM THE ICE....
A mammoth, flash frozen in solid ice 10,000 years ago is brought to the surface by a team of scientists. An act of sabotage frees the giant from its icy tomb and reveals the secret held inside.
OUT OF THE MAMMOTH....
The body of an ancient woman, cloaked in furs, slides out of the mammoth's belly. But it is not the woman that holds the team's attention - it is the object she is clutching: a device created by an advanced civilization.
THE HUNT IS ON....
The device is accidentally activated, summoning forces who seek its destruction. It is the key to mankind's salvation and freedom from the sinister force hiding behind the curtain, pulling the strings, and leading humanity towards destruction.

What the Critics Say

"Jeremy Robinson's novel Raising the Past is a rollicking Arctic adventure that explores the origins of the human species. Written in a solid cinematic style, it starts with the excavation of a frozen mammoth in the wilds of the Canadian tundra and ends with a pitched battle for the future of mankind. A story not to be missed!" (James Rollins, best-selling author of Altar of Eden)
"Raising the Past by Jeremy Robinson is a taut thriller that zooms. It's a wonderful mix of prehistoric intrigue, a modern-day love story, and a futuristic conspiracy bound to envelop any reader. Highly recommended." (Jon F. Merz, author of the Lawson Vampire series)

Disappointing

As a writer myself, I do not like being the critic a great deal. From a rather implausible yet interesting scenario, the story fades away to a ho-hum account of apparently 2 opposing alien races lurking on Earth waiting for a beacon of sorts to be activated, thus plunging we homo saps into another galactic battle. We are saved by an intrepid team, led by a guy with serious personal problems, including an emotional freeze, but shucks, it comes good for him by the end. With regret, I'm sorry I wasted a credit or money on this book. It should qualify for the next $4.49 sale. Furthermore, the narration was a little strange with different pronunciations of the same word but put this down as an oldster being pedantic.
Again with regret, this book doesn't meet the standard.
