Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Beyond the Ice Limit by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

I've read books from each of these authors separately and I have read books that they have collaborated together for the story.   Each are good separately but together they are excellent.   Reliquary  is a good example and Still Life With Crows was the most recent I read, besides this one, and it was excellent. Quirky and dapper FBI agent Pendergast is not in this book.  This book is part of the Gideon Crew series.  This is the follow up to The Ice Limit which I have not read.   Unlike many others, these two authors provided enough back story to make this an excellent stand alone book.

Spoiler alert for The Ice Limit , a giant meteor that was dropped at the ice limit near the south pole turns out to be a alien seed.  It has sprouted and the characters from The Ice Limit are back.  They are determined to destroy the Baobab, which is what they have named the alien entity.  They are convinced it is only here to destroy the planet.   Gideon Crew is essential to their plan.

The rest of the story is the efforts to destroy the alien and the consequences of their actions.   There is plenty of action and pathos.   Their concept of an alien is thought provoking.

I recommend.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
