Terminal Freeze (Jeremy Logan #2)
A breathtaking discovery at the top of the world . . .
A terrifying collision between modern science and Native American legend . . .
An electrifying new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Lincoln Child.
Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle lies Alaska's Federal Wildlife Zone, one of the most remote and inhospitable places on Earth. But for paleoecologis
'Testost(erone) tosh' is self-evidently the male version of chick-lit and I must admit I much prefer the manly rubbish compared to the entirely unpalatable (IMHO) female polemic. This genre is always fast, furious, vicious and improbable - wonderful comfort reads.
But they don't leave. Many die. aaaahhhaaaa, And the afterthought is just.... creepy.
understood the general flow of the story, not enough to critique it, though;
i must say that logan chap's a lot less frisky than their (him and preston) other heroes
i do hope to see the aurora borealis for real someday
There are many interesting and flawed, likable and unlikable characters.
But too soon it was all too easy to figure out, what was going to happen next. It was still entertaining to find out, whether I was right or not (Btw. I was.). Only the ending was aggravating: overwritten, and consisting mostly of blood and gore. Nothing wrong with that, but it left too many questions open.

This book was not my favorite of their works. The exploration of the arctic and the assembly of the documentary crew, the scientists, the military and the Tunit shaman made for an interesting cast of characters. I read this book more quickly than many other thrilers that I read and this is a huge gauge for me as to how much I enjoy a book. As much ...more

I think the big thing was listening on audio instead of actually reading a book. With Deep Storm, my only option was to do an e-book. Here and with The Forgotten Room, I opted for the audio option. I'm thinking with The Third Gate I might just do another e-book because this na ...more
The only spoiler I'll grant you is that it is NOT a Smiledon..

This book has a lot of good suspense and it does keep you on the edge of your seat. So in that regard it was a fun book to read.
Not Child's worst solo book, but not his best solo book either.
Pues bueno, al parecer su libro es una mezcla de texto de divulgación científica y novela. Basta con leer los últimos capítulos donde a la vez que explica el desenlace, alecciona sobre temas científicos...pero con un desbalance a la hora de plasmarlo.
No me convenció.
Lincoln seemed to have acquired an interest in writing as early as second grade, when he wrote a short story entitled Bumble the Elephant (now believed by scholars to be lost). Along with two dozen shor ...more
