In this riveting, high-octane thriller from Lincoln Child, an ancient creature is inadvertently released to wreak havoc on the inhabitants of a desolate arctic landscape.
Alaska's Federal Wilderness Zone is one of the most dangerous and inhospitable places on Earth. For paleoecologist Evan Marshall, an expedition to the Zone offers an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the mounting effects of climate change. But once there, Marshall and his intrepid team make an astonishing discovery: an enormous prehistoric animal encased in solid ice. Despite repeated warnings from the local village, and Marshall's own mounting concern, the expedition sponsors want the creature cut from the ice, thawed, and revealed on a live television spectacular…But then the creature disappears and an unspeakable horror is unleashed.

This was a mildly interesting read, a bit shallow, and the characters were only moderately developed. Some of the main characters were only straw men and one dimensional. Seems like this was a novel based on a b-movie idea. Disappointing, but not radically so.
Sitting here at midnight, couldn't stop
Great easy read
I loved this book. It's not incredibly deep or anything, but that wasn't what I was looking for. If you want to read a good supernatural thriller this is the book to read!
