Product Description

Product Description

When a series of earthquakes spreads through the Arctic and northern Europe, Inuit hunters bring back rumours from Greenland's interior of a massive rupture in the ice sheet. Zoe Carter, a scientist specialising in abrupt climate change, suspects that something is seriously wrong. Then Zoe, her husband Oliver and her colleague, Amy James, chance upon the giant rift for themselves whilst flying over it with visiting photographer, Lawrence Hewitt. Staggered by the rift's size, they fear that it cold be the factor that pushes an already fragile climate system over the tipping point and into disaster.
But what is causing the ice to fracture in the first place?
Dubbed the Atlantis Rift because of its power to destroy a civilisation, the evidence points to the stirrings of an ancient volcano they call Ningakpok. The seeping lava is destroying the ice sheet, and if the melting ice collapses into the boiling caldera, then an eruption could take place with aforce not seen in historical times, blowing the rift apart and cascading land ice towards the sea, causing gigantic tidal waves and flooding to the coasts of northern Europe. If they cannot stop the lava flow, abrupt climate change could be here sooner than anyone thought. It could be right here, right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extreme events call for extreme measures. 11 Sep 2012

After devestating the U.K.in The Hurricane Drift, it's civilisation itself that is now under threat in The Ice Rift. A really well thought out disaster novel that has that ring of believability that has you thinking this could really happen.An interesting mix of characters that you start to really care about. It's well researched and as the plot unfolds you will find yourself checking out the latest climate forecasts about what's happening to Greenland as the ice starts to melt.I really like novels that make me think and this is one that I find myself thinking about a lot after I had finished it. A really good thing to say about any book. Well worth your time and effort. More of the same please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story 14 May 2014

Pretty good story with convincing characters and good descriptions of the arctic. The plot was a little short on credibility at times, but still readable.

A fairly good book with interesting story,but a bit tame for my liking. it reminded me of The Famous Five books I read 50 years ago,so I say this book should interest the 10 to 16 age bracket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ice Rift ?? 3 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gripping to the end. Great yarn and very topical in view of scientific concers and lack of balanced discussion by world leaders concerning global warming and need for alternative fuels to oil

Brilliant! Just my kind of book! Threatening volcanoes, tidal waves and a bit of romance chucked in for good measure. Fantastic!
