Jeremy Robinson is not afraid to push the boundaries of fiction – here is an author whose books often have strong Biblical storylines that explore new territory and then take it to the next level. Antarktos Rising (Variance Publishing) is no exception. A positive look at the Bible written in a mainstream style has been sorely overlooked, but not by Jeremy Robinson whose latest novel goes where both Christian and typical fiction writers rarely dare to venture. Antarktos Rising is the story of an epic journey to a new world after a phenomenon, known as crustal displacement, shifts the earth's crust and repositions continents, leaving countless dead in its wake. As the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions, Antarctica emerges as a new hope. The leading nations devise a competition - a race to the center of Antarctica - with the three victors dividing the continent between them. Mirabelle Whitney, a survivor of the displacement and an expert on Antarctica, is recruited to guide an American Special Forces unit across the thawed-out continent. But they discover the continent has already been claimed by an ancient enemy of humanity and God—the Nephilim. As survivors of the Genesis flood (Genesis 6:4) and frozen Antarctic, they have re-emerged to continue their dominance of mankind. As the offspring of human mothers and demon fathers they were feared due to their giant stature and evil nature. As Mirabelle and the world race to claim a new continent, they realize there is a danger far more frightening than the evil intentions of their fellow man. Antarktos Rising explores the science behind the Genesis flood, the reality of the Nephilim and the possibility of God using the flood to not just wipe out a corrupt population, but a human race that carried the Nephilim genetic code.What a Thriller, it pulled me along!!
