The book starts off with a cataclysmic natural event which changes the world forever (something "The Day After Tomorrow" promised but didn't really deliver) and then falls headlong into a non-stop rollercoaster ride to the end! On several occasions I actually found myself holding my breath in sympathy with the characters!
There are religious references throughout the book and, being a non-believer, I was worried these may affect my enjoyment of the book somewhat but I'm pleased to say they were always used to push the plot along NEVER to preach.
Also, parts of the book were so descriptive and chilling that I actually freaked myself out reading them, thinking the Nephilim were somewhere in my flat! This really is quite an achievement considering I'm 38 & 6'4" and live in a flat with 2 secure doors between me and the real world!! A testament to Jeremy's writing to be sure!
If you like the books of Steve Alten (Meg, Domain, Goliath etc) or Matthew Reilly (Contest, Area 7, Six Sacred Stones etc) then you should LOVE this book!
A few reviews on here have been quite negative towards the book but I think they need to relax on the science bit and just enjoy the book for what it is - a rollicking good time on the ride of your life!
I really like this book, but back when I first read it, not quite as much. It felt unfinished in many ways. It was a complete story ripe with action and mayhem and dinosaurs and gigantic foes- more than a match for humanity's dwindling attempt at staking a claim in the new Antarktos.
But too vague, it just didn't seem like the whole story.
Apparently, Jeremy Robinson thought so as well. He expanded, and finished the story in Antarktos Rising, with the series/story, "The Last Hunter". It comes in novellas and a very fancy Collected Edition, which has artwork and a short story and an interview.
The Last Hunter is the epitome of epic to me. I recommend reading Antarktos Rising after book 2: Pursuit- it fits right in, but reading it before The Last Hunter works, too. But Antarktos Rising is the core of it all and you won't go wrong with it by itself. Even though I wasn't as happy with it then as I am since the Last Hunter came out, I still would have given it 4.5. It's damn good on it's own. Because of The Last Hunter, it gets a 5. Check them out!
Most of the world, what's left of it anyway, now sees Antarktos as a much nicer place to live than where they now reside. Instead of a full out war over who gets the continent, they agree for each country to race over land to the centre of Antarktos with the fist 3 groups claiming a 3rd of the continent.
Most of the teams are prepared to use lethal force and dirty tricks to reach the centre first. However they don't know about the Freaking monsters which have now emerged on the surface and pose a greater threat.
The book follows the American team across the Antarctic, and is a jolly fun read. "The Last Hunter" is another book in this series, set slightly before this one, but it should not matter which order they are read in.
An interesting concept, well put together. If you like a fast-paced fantasy thriller, then this is for you.
I've not been disappointed by any of JRs books, and so looking forward to his new releases. This guy is definitely a star in the making.
If you have already read 'Raising the Past' and 'Didymus Contigency' then you'll love this fine work. It's got more action than 'Raising the Past', more religious undertones than 'Didymus Contigency'.
If you like a good science fiction novel that isn't too far fetched then you'll love this read.
The plot, layout and readability are also worth mentioning, I'm not into really heavy books that take a PhD to read and understand but Jeremy (as always) finds a way to highlight coincidental and historical events with the story and I found that just envelopes the reader even more and encourages you to read on.
