Publisher's Summary

A group of 27 scientists and explorers are stranded in Antarctica.

Residing in a station known as Shackleton, they are studying the seismic activity of the region. An eruption of the nearby volcano, Mount Erebus, soon sends quakes throughout the continent with devastating results.

All radio communication has been disabled by the breakdown of the magnetic field. Evacuation is unlikely. No one knows whether they survived the icequake, and their station is now moving two kilometres north each day with the strong aftershocks. They are on their own, with limited food and resources.

Do they stay put and risk being caught in the next series of icequakes and avalanches? Or do they pack up and trek over dangerous territories to the neighbouring station?

Icequake is a gripping prophetic sci-fi disaster novel, full of excitement and danger in every chapter.

If You Like Science In Your Science Fiction

It took me a while to warm up to the idea of Antarctica as the scene for such a wildly extreme climate change disaster epic. But it turns out the catastrophes described here are perfectly possible. Even relatively likely under the circumstances, sooner or later. And that makes the cast of "ordinary" scientists unusually provocative protagonists. They are normal human beings with the usual wide variety of personal characteristics. There are no superhuman powers on display: just the ones we humans have always had to rely on in catastrophes.There are no cartoonish people here, but a very realistic and well-described variety of personalities. And I found this aspect of Icequake to be a crucially valuable contrast to the action.

I give extra credit to the unobtrusively excellent narrator. His fluidly intelligent performance makes a great difference in how this long and very complex story is seamlessly and enjoyably knit together.

intense

Enjoyed listening to the book. Plenty of action, science, brilliant descriptions, and excellent explanations. Lots happening with nature taking the lead and man reacting.
