The South Pole in winter is one of the deadliest places on Earth. The seven person crew of the US Freedom Base lives alone in months of utter darkness with no hope of help or rescue. A freak storm batters the walls and threatens to expose them to the deadly cold. All they can do is wait…and pray.
The ground quakes. An alien screech rips through the night. There’s something, or someone, lurking outside. Fists bang on the walls. Each tiny crack in the base spells death by hypothermia.
Untold horrors have come to Freedom Base…and they want in!
So this month Two Bloggers One Book is being taken over by Hunter Shea books as we decided to read a couple of his books and make a month of it instead of just the one book. You can also join in a well, just grab a book of Shea’s and give it a read! Once you have read my review go check out Barbs!
Here is what I thought
This was a really strange book and I think you either liked it or your on the fence about it and I fell more on the fence side of things.
It’s told in multiple points of views about a team in the Antarctic and how all of a sudden their very quiet life surviving a storm becomes very chaotic after an earthquake happens. They go from worrying about the next winter storm that was going to hit and how they will hold up against it to fighting off a horde of pale naked muscular men with very large eyes. ?? Yeah. But that is not it.
They have no idea how these guys got there or what they are doing there or how they are surviving the frigid cold naked. Things start to go terribly wrong and a lot of things happen. Then more men come to their site but not just them they also have beast that are described as being a combination of other animals.
I felt very bored at first and then it got exciting and then it got weird and then I had no clue what was going on and then I thought I did and then it ended and I was left very confused. It was definitely a book you had to just go with as it was very unbelievable that all this stuff was coming out of a whole in the ground because of an earthquake. There was thousands of men, and all sorts of weird creatures, then even BIGGER men and stranger creatures. They all are sure they are going to die so they find it strange that they are taken into the large cave like hole where they witness all the strangeness.
Okay so this is hard to explain without feeling like I am going to give things away so I will stop rambling about it. I really liked the creatures and the strange things but there is a death that I felt was kind of overkill and it upset me. Overall it was just an okay book for me. I liked parts I didn’t like parts and the end just totally confused me. So I can’t say don’t read it but I can say be prepared for some weird stuff as I think some will like it more than I did. 🙂
