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.

Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child

Lincoln Child tends to write about improbable but entertaining "strange" occurrences.  I'm never sure whether to post my reviews on Azure Dwarf which is my Sci/Fi/Fantasy site or here.   This book is set deep in the arctic circle and alludes to global warming.   The glaciers and snow pack are dwindling at unprecedented speed.  A team of scientists are exploring that impact on the ecology and are sponsored by a "science"  cable channel.  What the team uncovers changes the parameters of the study and escalates into mayhem. 

There are no truly central characters in the book.   There are some characters that get more page time than others but none are truly memorable.   The story follows an Alien type of format.   As too much detail tends to lead to spoiling the story, it is sufficient to state that blood, guts, mayhem, fear, secret research and government cover ups are all included in the plot.

I recommend the book.

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