Publisher's Summary

Scientists Dr. Eccleston and Dr. Lerner have done many routine expeditions for the Skurzon Corporation in the past, helping the company search the ocean for newly available resources freed by melting ice. They're expecting to maybe find oil at the bottom of the Arctic Sea. What they aren't expecting is a lost island that defies all scientific understanding.

Great Little Story

Well worth reading and highly recommended. I thoroughly enjoyed this short story, it had great characters and the story flowed nicely. Matthew Crow is an awesome narrator and once again he did a bang up job. IMO more authors should consider using Matthew, because so many great books are ruined by using the wrong narrator for that particular story. And so far everything I have listened to from Matthew has been enjoyable. I was provided this audiobook code for free in a promo, and I am also voluntarily writing this unbiased review.

Plan on leaving reality behind with this book

The author and narrator start off in a place of just another day working near the north pole and then they take your on a severe left turn from reality. The book is fast paced and has just enough reality kept in to make it believable as you travel along with the crew from the from the exploration ship. The emotions and greed are all realistic and keep you also grounded to pseudo reality. Looking forward to the next book in this series and listing to other books narrated by Matthew Crow.

Short fantastic story

Sometimes less is more and that is true with this book.

The characters are developed in a believable way and the environment is interesting.

I wouldn’t mind hearing a longer Verizon.

Matthew Crow is one of the best narrator today.

I received this audio book free for an honest review.

This fast paced novel is non-stop action as an exploration ship gets attached by a strange creature and finds a mysterious island in the Arctic Ocean. Get prepared for a heart pounding audiobook!

Just wish it was longer!

This was a phenomenal book/short story to listen to. It's action packed right from the beginning, and I love that the small details make the book so much more believable. Do yourself a favor and give it a chance.

good plot, poor development

The plot had so much potential but lacked any serious development. Narration was good but bland. This could have been a really good prequel if done better.

Short and cliched

People get stranded on a lost island. Most of them get killed. It's like something I would have written when I was 12. It's nothing offensive, but nothing good or even fun either.

Oh, at least the narrator was fine.

The Lost Island

Was not sure about what to expect from this book, it looked interesting from the cover and write up. It was presently surprising and very well read, It has a good story line from start to end and was a story that you could get into as it was read.

brilliant creature feature

I knew I would enjoy this book from the blurb, it sounded like the best creature feature on a Friday night.

The characters are well defined and I really liked that the two lead characters weren't forced into becoming love interests. it makes a nice change to let characters like that stand in their own right.

I thought the narrator did a brilliant job.

Great stuff

Great stuff, a super story , a crew is shipwrecked on a mysterious island where everyrhing is deadly well written with vicious monsters both creatures and humans and nasty inventive deaths. Excellent narration. I would have loved a longer story, hope there is more to come. I received a complementary copy via the author and have left a voluntary honest review.

Listened in one sitting!

I LOVED this audiobook, if you enjoy dinosaur related booked, this is like Jurassic Park meets the Hunger Games, it was so enjoyable to listen to and kept your attention throughout with little twists and turns, I honestly didn’t want it to end. My only negative is that the book was long enough, I would have loved to have learnt more about the island and the creatures. I really hope there is a follow on book from this as I just want to hear more about everything!
