A phenomenon known as crustal displacement shifts the Earth's crust, repositioning continents and causing countless deaths. In the wake of the global catastrophe, the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions. But Antarctica, freshly thawed and blooming, has emerged as a new hope. Rather than wage a world war no nation can endure, the leading nations devise a competition, a race to the center of Antarctica, with the three victors dividing the continent.
It is within this race that Mirabelle Whitney, one of the few surviving experts on the continent, grouped with an American special forces unit, finds herself. But the dangers awaiting the team are far worse than feared; beyond the sour history of a torn family, beyond the nefarious intentions of their human enemies, beyond the ancient creatures reborn through anhydrobiosis--there are the Nephilim.
...ONLY TO FIND IT ALREADY TAKEN.
THE STORY CONTINUES!

Great sci-fi tale
First time listening to this author, and pleasantly surprised. Robinson spins a very good mix of sci-fi, ancient legends, religious stories and likeable characters. Definitely recommend. R C Bray was phenomenal as narrator.

Enjoyable tale of apocalyptic disaster.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Totally. This book was a very enjoyable listen. It contained a lot of suspense and action and most of all an interesting story. The story interwove, Biblical myths, horror, adventuring and survival.
What did you like best about this story?
The story continued to grow. It didn't just go down one direction i.e. apocalyptic disaster; it went from there onto the next twist and then onto the next. It kept the story interesting and fresh rght to the end.
Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
R.C. Bray. Is a MASTER narrator. In my opinion he is in the top 5 narrators I have ever listened to. He is the first narrator where I searched to buy a book on Audible by narrator rather than author. He is that good.
Could you see Antarktos Rising being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I could definitely see this book being made into a movie. It has all the elements necessary, in addition it isn't too long, so it wouldn't be totally butchered on the silver screen.
Any additional comments?
This book was a good listen, listened to it in one sitting (day) over the weekend. There are several other books in this series apparently and I am excited to see if they continue the interesting story.

Left behind pulp fiction...
Cheesy and cliche writing leading to an adventure that calls to mind the 1930's and 40's pulp fiction writing. Only the cheaper kind.
Dinosaurs and communists, terrorists and demons, all with a ever increasingly shoehorned Christian backdrop. It left me remembering the left behind series fondly.
The author goes out of his way to make characters racist caricatures. The only Arabs, terrorists, the Hispanic marine always has to be relatively uncultured, cocky, and insensitive. The African American always has to be sage yet sassy.
I will admit I did have fun listening to this, it had some good mindless adventure in places. Although I was waiting for him to slip a nazi in for good measure to give it that
The performance was a little better than the writing but not by much, what with the inability to pronounce the names of well known ancient gods, the names of common supernatural creatures( in literature that is) and various other things took away from the performance and left me gritting my teeth whenever I heard them.
Worth the 4.99 blue moon special, but only if your not paying close attention.. Not worth the full price.
