Bloodthirsty monsters are emerging from the Antarctic ice, the same creatures that once stalked the battlegrounds of World War I. Back then, a group of soldiers valiantly fought off the beasts—and were never seen again. A century later, an elite military squad stands between civilization and the mysterious return of the enemy.

Captain Charlie Weller is part of an elite military unit is charge of watching a rift in the ice in Antarctica. They are all that stand between the world and the monsters who want to invade it. When a man crawls out of the rift, Charlie's team rescues him. His tale is fantastic, and will change the fight forever.

This story is a fast paced mix of action and romance. It was perhaps a little too fast paced for me. I found the romance to be almost insta-love. Within a day of meeting and rescuing Lys

After a great experience with Lois McMaster Bujold’s Cordelia’s Honor, I decided to broaden my horizons and give some sci-fi romance a chance. I’ve always loved Star Trek and Star Wars, and I usually limit my sci-fi enjoyment to the small screen, but when I saw Jamie Craig’s A Line in the Ice, I thought I’d check it out. I’m so glad I did, because it was action-packed and a sweet romance. Jamie Craig is actually writing team Vivien
I'm not usually a huge fan of romances in which the heroine is in the military or plays some other gun-toting revenge-seeking government operative. It's not that I don't like the idea, since, actually, I think it's pretty great that women are now able to serve as men do, and demonstrate that they are just as capable as men to serve in a military capacity. My problem is more to do with how women in military/enforcement roles in romances are written in. I find too often they are either completely ...more

STORYLINE: Six soldiers are stationed in Antarctica in close proximity to a rift from which monsters are appearing. A man emerges from said rift claiming he’s from a place called Illyria. His forefather fought in World War I and disappeared along with his squadron, after doing battle with Aquorian monsters.

Captain Charlie Weller is attracted to the stranger, Lysander, who is determined to return to Illyria and defeat the enemy who has wiped out his countrymen. It’s hard for the soldiers to beli

This book definitely gave me the feel of a mid-grade science-fiction movie, a la Ghosts of Mars or something in the same vein. We've got a group of soldiers stationed together in Antarctica. There are six of them, each representing a different country. The conditions are horrible; their accommodations and supplies, meager. But their mission is critical: They're fighting the inhuman beasts appearing in the frigid landscape.

As the book begins, the soldiers discover a man climbing from the rift whe
Wendy *Sebella Blue* Mitchell
The frozen desolate landscape of the Antarctic has become the focal point for a team of 6 military specialists intent on saving the Earth from monsters coming from a rift in the ice. These monsters are not unknown to certain government agencies around the world. They have been battled before, many years ago in Europe during WWI. When Captain Charlie Weller rescues what appears to be a human coming from the rift, it puts the other team members in an uproar. When he claims to be a descendant of M ...more

This book is unique in that the author spins off on the good versus evil plot. A group of soldiers find a freezing and wounded man with a fantastic story to tell. They are forced to believe him after they encounter the beasts that the man speaks of-the soldiers also witnessed the beasts before too. The reader will enjoy getting to know each character quite well. The secondary characters are interesting and have quirks that the reader will come to enjoy. The plot itself is intriguing, not exactly ...more

Shelves: erotica, sci-fi
What really worked for me in this book was the characters. Characters are the heart and soul of any story and, to me, more important than plot. This book delivered both. It’s an interesting and imaginative setting, with just enough sci-fi to make it fun, and not so much that non-sci-fi readers would get freaked out.

The characters are easy to get into. Charlie’s got spunk, but she’s not overdone. Lysander’s sensitive but not a wimp. The supporting cast is varied and believable. It’s a great story
