Antarktos Rising (Origins #4)
THE WORLD RACES TO CLAIM A NEW CONTINENT...
A phenomenon known as crustal displacement shifts the Earth's crust, repositioning continents and causing countless deaths. In the wake of the global catastrophe, the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions. But Antarctica, freshly thawed and blooming, has emerged as a new hope. Rather than wage a world war no nation can endure, the leading nations devise a competition, a race to the center of Antarctica, with the three victors dividing t...more

For those nations that suffered the worst of the disaster, both in loss of lives and resources, the new land offers salvation to whoever controls it. Rather than fighting a...more
The basic plot was good. The crustal displacement event and its effects were cool, and the early scenes with characters such as Anguta, and Whitney, were interesting. The scene with the frozen bodies in the abandoned church was good creepy, as were other scattered scenes.
I agree with other reviewers who have stated that thing...more

Why does it seem adventure novels are always written by authors with little political or religious objectivism? Too often they get tied up in the strictures of Christian religious thought and use its mythology as some sort of reliable historical document on which to build their plots. Less than a quarter way through this, I felt like I was reading the plot to the SciFi Channel's latest horror fantasy movie...more
