Three thousand years after a chunk of iron the size of Khufu’s pyramid collides with Europa, Jupiter’s sixth moon, an asteroid borne of the collision crashes into Earth’s Arctic ice shelf carrying extraterrestrial microbial life. The first man to come into contact with the microbes hears voices—and then dies. After determining the meteorite originated from Europa, the Global Exploratory Corporation sends oceanographer and biologist, Kathy Connelly, and her crew to the moon aboard the Surveyor, an experimental spacecraft. They are charged with the task of melting through miles of ice to the hidden ocean beneath, where the search for alien microorganisms begins. But a startling discovery awaits them on the surface of Europa. Life. Vast fields of red, plant-like organisms fill the cracks crisscrossing the moon’s surface, surviving on nutrients welling up from the waters below. Intoxicated by thoughts of what might lie beneath, Connelly and her crew activate the Thermal Exploratory System and melt through the ice—toward a world that does not want to be found, toward a force that will do anything to make sure they never leave. They search for life. They find death. PRAISE FOR BENEATH: "Here's a near-future space adventure that's as frightening as it is smart. Jeremy Robinson's BENEATH is packed with believable tech, a page-turning story and an alien intelligence so creepy, you'll pray NASA never makes it past the moon." --J.C. Hutchins, author of PERSONAL EFFECTS: DARK ART and 7th SON: DESCENT "Jeremy Robinson hits his stride in BENEATH. His story-telling is as tight as ever, delivering thrills that raise the heart rate and science detail that gets the mind cranking just has hard. An evocative blend of Crichton and Clarke, BENEATH is destined to become an instant new media classic." --Phil Rossi, Best Selling author of CRESCENT, HARVEY, and EDEN "Isolation, cold, and the unknown: Like The Thing, Into the Void taps into those fears, and a couple more we never know we had. Robinson strips away all that we hold dear, sends us into the deep dark, and dares us to make our way out of it." --Mur Lafferty, author of PLAYING FOR KEEPS and award-winning podcaster of I SHOULD BE WRITING and the HEAVEN series “Robinson grabbed my attention in the first chapter, and kept hold of it. BENEATH isn’t your run of the mill way distant future fantasy sci-fi. It reads like its real, like it could happen today…but we hope and pray it doesn’t.” --Basil Sands, author of 65 BELOW and FAITHFUL WARRIOR "Masterful Craftsmanship...a chilling tale that finally answers the question: Are we alone?" --thenovelblog.com PRAISE FOR ROBINSON: "There's nothing timid about Robinson..." -- Jeff Long, NY Times bestselling author of THE DESCENT and YEAR ZERO "How do you find an original story idea in the crowded action-thriller genre? Two words: Jeremy Robinson." -- Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of CONTAGIOUS and INFECTED "Jeremy Robinson is an original and exciting voice." -- Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of THE CHARLEMAGNE PURSUIT

All previous reviewers and potential readers take note! -- From the author
This podcast novel is COMPLETE. As many of you know, podcast novels are serialized with weekly releases. BENEATH came out weekly for about ten weeks without missing a release date and the last three episodes went up all together. SO, please finish listening and, if you get a moment, update your reviews! :) Thanks. -- Jeremy Robinson
Jeremy Robinson's Beneath has me hooked! Great characters and excellent storyline! If you love sci-fi (real sci-fi, if you only read the Warhammer and similar books don't bother) you will love this book!
But just wish it was complete. I am a little impatient and want to know how it ends. It is a very interesting book and keeps you on edge.
