I enjoy fast past thrillers even if they require some suspension of belief. James Rollins has provided me with just such a book. Beneath the ice at the bottom of the world is a huge subterranean labyrinth, a place of breath taking beauty and terrors beyond imagining. A team of specialists headed by archaeologist Ashley Carter is handpicked to explore this secret place. But they are not the first to undertake this risky venture and those they follow did not return. There are mysteries here older than time and surprises that could change the world and things that should not be disturbed. Ashley and her team discover a devastating truth that could doom them and their expedition.

Folks who enjoy books by Clive Cussler will enjoy this book as well. It is action packed, fast moving, and an interesting tale. The characters were quite well developed and there is enough suspense and tension to keep me reading well into the night wondering how the story would end. Rollins writes with clarity and intelligence. I definitely will read more by this author.
