Ice (Dr. Leah Andrews and Jack Hobson Thrillers, #1)

by

Librarian Note: Alternate Cover Edition for ASIN: B01557MW80.

Archaeologist Leah Andrews stumbles upon something inexplicable in southwestern New Mexico: inside a dark cavern lies an undiscovered, Native American cliff dwelling abandoned for 800 years. While twisting through one of the narrow underground passageways, Leah’s flashlight illuminates the remains of a violent massacre.

Ancient human remains—all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre—cover the cavern floor, along with a number of brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare crystals are native to only one place on earth: a frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.

Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years prior to the first known human exploration? If so how? And why?

There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.

At their destination they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.

As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.

    Where do I start? The characters were not fleshed out at all, everyone was drawn only to provide what the author needed. Leah, who never thought about the consequences of her actions, only about her i...

    No Thrills in this Adventure TaleThe worst thing about this is the fact it takes more than half the book before the characters reach their destination - Antartica. Up to that point the plot is all exp...

    The beginning had such promise and I probably would have rated it 4 stars if it had continued. But once they got to Antarctica things began to make a lot less sense. It began to feel that things start...
