    If you like action and adventure, this is the book for you. It takes place in the coldest part of the world, it's roof! There are russians, spies, intrigue, science, mystery, and action packed adventure. With that said, the characters themselves are mostly one-dimensional with exceptio...

    This book has sat inconspicuously next to my computer desk on it's shelf for two years and I don't know what exactly propelled me to pick it up but I'm glad I finally did! I tend to collect adventure stories that reach all corners of the Earth, even go between the layers and I especial...

    I enjoyed this book more than I expected to. It is the second James Rollins book I've read, the first being "Subterranean." I was not especially impressed with that one, but liked the premise of this one, so decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. The characters were interesting, and...

    On a research mission in the Arctic Ocean, a US Navy sub discovers an ?ice island,? an inverted mountain 1.4 miles deep. Inside is Ice Station Grendel, an abandoned Russian research station. When the Navy team and polar scientists open the station, they discover horrors that have b...

    What an exciting and enjoyable read! A hidden research station in the Arctic Sea certainly makes for a thrilling setting! Rollins? characters are fully described and come to life within the book?s pages. The monsters add a lot of excitement - and Rollins balances the facets of his ...

    is it me or do some lines repeat themselves? it was like having a deja vu feeling all over the book that sno-cat performing a wheelie, though! and a scene before that, where the cat's driver used the backstreet boys' music as a threat... p24: then the small male cub--if you cou...

    As I listened to this audiobook narrated by Ron Dryer, I couldn't help but think that Ice Hunt is modern day black ops meets Jules Verne. The book is full of action, intrigue, vehicle chases, and plot twists, and there are enough explosions and incendiary devices to melt the polar ice ...

    You know that feeling you get when the roller coaster starts up that first hill? Not one of those magnetic shoot you out of a cannon starts, I mean a good old style wooden gravity driven roller coaster. You know what I mean, that feeling in the pit of your stomach that sees a thrill b...

    I went back and added a star to this book's rating. I had read it quite a few years ago but it stands out as one of my favorite of all of the James Rollins novels. You have an extreme environment, animals that have fallen off the evolutionary ladder and plenty of running and death. Wha...

    James Rollns is my go to thriller author and I have yet to be even mildly disappointed in any of his novels that I have read. Even among the embarassment of riches, this book stands out as one of my favorites. A political, race against the clock page-turner featuring buried secrets, go...

    Yes, I forged on with the book, finishing it this afternoon. Let me share what Goodreads says before I tear it apart: Buried deep in the earth's polar ice cap - carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States - is a secret place, the site of a remarkable aband...

    A very enjoyable book hard to put down. Yes, the plot is about the same thing as usual, and you won't find any psychological depth or philosophy or whatever but, let's admit it, a book can be highly amusing even without those :) When you feel like you don't want your mind to be overloa...

    4.5 Stars. A very enjoyable all-action adventure book set in the frozen north. Great political intrigue with a bit of an historical backdrop. Events that happened in the past come back to haunt both the US and Russia. Throw a threat to existence on earth and creatures that add an extra...

    Publishers Weekly was quoted as saying "If Cussler is the gold standard, then Rollins is the silver." I take massive issue with that. Rollins surpasses Cussler by an order of magnitude. Particularly with this book, whereby Rollins surpassed all the other books he's written! This was ...

    I'm struggling to finish this. I can usually finish a book in a few days. A week or two if I'm sidetracked somewhere else. When I do have time, I'm rarely drawn back into this book. It has an interesting start, but the more I'm into it, the less interested I am. I don't care for the ch...

    This book is all about Americans and Russians chasing and shooting at each other. The introduction of a bunch of big beasties, who chase both Russians and Americans, doesn?t save it. The two lame romantic entanglements don?t save it either. If you are in the mood for nonstop, brain...

    I really appreciate how much research Rollins does for his novels. Making certain that the science is plausible, that the schematics of places make sense, and that the cultures/ languages used are accurate all really suck me into his stories. I could really picture this happening all u...

    Middle of the pack thriller for me. The novel was honestly a bit too long; James Rollins could have accomplished a lot of the plot in probably 200 fewer pages and have held a quicker pace. There are parts in there where it gets bogged down pointlessly with extra stuff, seemingly to...

    Probably the best book by James Rollins I have read yet. It is either this or Subterranean another great book. I loved every moment of this book especially the ending. It got me through those long periods after PARCC was over. It is a great story about redemption, revenge, dehumanizati...

    I enjoyed the story but did have some difficulty with the visuals. Without giving any spoilers I would just say that what was often being described and a major point of the story, I never really could "see" it. Other than that the story moved well and had a good mix of plot/action. I'm...

    The third book I have now read of James Rollins and my reaction to Ice Hunt is, ok. This book centers around the discovery of a research station in the Artic that holds massive secrets that the Russian's and American's want to hide. Sounds pretty interesting so I picked up the book and...
