Buried deep in the earth's polar ice cap--carved into moving island of ice twice the size of the United States--is a secret place, the site of a remarkable abandoned experiment that could have frightening ramifications for the planet. The brain trust of the former Soviet Union who created the seventy-year-old Ice Station Grendel would like it simply to melt from human memory. But that becomes impossible when an American undersea research vessel, the Polar Sentinel, inadvertently pulls too close to the hollowed-out iceberg ... and one of the crew sees something alive inside. Something that never should have survived. It is a discovery that sends shock waves through the intelligence communities of two powerful nations, as American and Russian scientist, soldiers, and unsuspecting civilians are pulled into Grendel's lethal vortex of secrets, violence, and betrayal. The covert battle over Grendel is spinning out of control, and the future of all human life on Earth will be altered -- or destroyed -- once its nightmarish truths are revealed.

A Fish and Game warden rescues a survivor from a plane crash in the Alaskan bush and an experimental submarine finds a secret base frozen inside an iceberg. Pretty soon a cast of sympathetic heroes and villains is duking it out above and below the ice of the polar sea. Crichton-esque, but with a cast that's not just cannon fodder.

Basic writing - lacked smooth transitions. The character discriptions and development consisted of heavy handed paragraphs interjected for no reason other than to remove the burden of a more skillful revealing of personality traits, physical descriptions, and past interactions. Most of us prefer to be shown something instead of told.

Fun, entertaining, fast-paced. When you pick up a Rollins book you know you have to put on your gullible hat and enjoy the ride

I have read all of James Rollins books and to be honset the more books i read the less i was interested. the first book I read I thought was great, it was exciting and I didnt want to put it down. But as I kept reading his books I noticed that they are all the same book just with different names and places. He became so predictable i found myself skipping whole chapters because i knew it really had nothing to do with the plot. Dont get me wrong its not that the books are bad, if you just picked one of his books and read it you would be pleased for sure, the action and adventure keeps your attention,its just once you read a few of them you see that they are all basically the same. Also they all seem to be 20 pages too long.
