'BUCKLE UP... This is going to be a hell of a ride!' --Jonathan Maberry - Bram Stoker Award winning author of The Wolfman (now a major motion picture)
'Quickly paced, imaginatively detailed, and highly atmospheric, Beck's novel is an entertaining mix of thriller, horror, fantasy, and science fiction' --Neal Wyatt, RA Crossroads, LIBRARY JOURNAL
'BENEATH THE DARK ICE has all the ingredients of a late night page-turner: a remote and dangerous setting, a rugged hero with an Achilles heel, a vicious and deadly villain, geopolitical intrigue and cutting-edge science. Throw in a feisty heroine and a band of elite soldiers, put them in the ruins of an ancient civilization and pit them against a mythological creature, and it's a recipe for compulsive reading' --Lachlan Jobbins, Good Reading Magazine
'Exciting Read! A successful mix of spy thriller, psychological drama, and scientific primeval action novel - with just a touch of the Jules Verne' --Anne Dickson, Rodney Libraries
'BENEATH THE DARK ICE - In a word: GRIPPING' --Malcolm Tattersall, Townsville BULLETIN.
'A nerve-shredding adventure that skilfully blends thriller, horror and fantasy.'
--Peterborough Evening Telegraph, Alex Gordon

I enjoyed this book, as I said, a lot more than I thought I did, and I would certainly recommend it if you want a good action-packed read. Will I be getting and reading the sequel Dark Rising (Alex Hunter 2) Yes, actually I will!
A note on the Kindle version; flawless! No proplems whatsoever.
This is pure popcorn entertainment, so leave your brain at home and enjoy the ride.
Our hero, Alex Hunter, is a super-human (I told you to leave your brain at home) soldier tasked with accompanying a group of scientists and other skilled people into an ice cavern to investigate the disappearance of a previous group of people. Whilst there they meet various creepy-crawlies as well as being pursued by an old foe of Alex's.
The baddies are suitably nasty, the action is frenetic and plentiful and the tension gripping.
Greig Beck is a welcome addition to the action / adventure genre and I can't wait for his next book.
Feels like a Clive Cusslar novel with monsters. Perfect for wasting away a few hours, only draw back is these of brain cells along the way.
