Beyond the Ice Limit by Preston and Child


No creature comforts here, just lots of underwater suspense.

Preston and Child are back with the fourth thrilling in the Gideon Crew series.

I didn’t read the first books because I wanted to get to the nitty gritty of the encounter and attempted destruction of the creature; however, the authors do a good job of making this a stand-alone book. There are enough references to the previous events that you get backstory to understand their angst, stress (beyond dealing with a sea creature), and what’s at stake, without rewriting the entire series. The creature’s description is detailed enough to spark imagination and provide plausible interaction.

If you are a fan of creature books, like Alien and Meg, and want an easy read (with a sprinkle of gory details), you might enjoy this trip to the bottom of the ocean.
