Publisher's Summary

East Antarctica: the coldest, most desolate location on earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a 6,000 square mile liquid lake, over 1,000 feet deep, left untouched for more than 15 million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life-forms long believed extinct - and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man.
In this sequel to The Loch and prequel to Meg: Nightstalkers, New York Times best-selling author Steve Alten offers listeners a crossover novel that features characters from two of his most popular series.

Slightly disappointed

As a huge Steve Alten fan, I have been waiting ages for The Loch and Vostok to become available on audio format.

While Vostok isn't a bad book it's falls far short of The Loch, I can't really say for what reason without ruining the book for anyone else. Lest just say the big bad under water monsters don't get much of a look in. As a tie in to the Meg series it could have done that on a much bigger scale. I have to say I am disappointed, after The Loch which was superb.

Big hopes for the upcoming Meg Generations book

Awful book with a good performance.

First third of the book is a fair to middling monster story that unfortunately gets caught up trying to one up is predecessor. After that the supposedly based on facts book takes a left turn in to aliens, UFOs, science is magic and New World Order conspiracy theories.

In the 3rd part the book totally loses the plot and turns into a mix of religious pap, new age spiritualist nonsense and time travel. I had to take a couple of days off at one point just so could bring myself to finish it.

To be blunt, it's tosh. Sadly not even entertaining tosh like The Loch or Meg books. It makes Dan Brown's work look rational and believable.

The performance however is very good. Shame really.
