Publisher's Summary

For lovers of John Carpenter’s The Thing comes a tale of alien horror from international best-selling author Greig Beck.  

100,000 years ago the object hit the lake at the deepest point, quickly sinking into its mile-deep Stygian darkness. The sheets of ice closed, time moved on and the land forgot.  

But over the centuries, legends grew of people vanishing, of strange, deformed animals and of an unexplained luminescence down in the lake depths.  

When Marcus Stenson won the lucrative contract to create a sturgeon fish farm on the site of disused paper mill on the shore of Lake Baikal, he thought he had won the lottery and refused to listen to the chilling folktales, or even be concerned by the occasional harassment from the local mafia.   

But then animals were found mutilated in the frozen forest and people started to go missing. And worse, some came back, changed, horribly. 

In the depths of the lake, something that had been waiting 100,000 years was stirring. And it needed the warmth of mankind to survive.

The Siberian Incident

Greig Beck has written yet another very interesting book, I’m liking all his novels, and this book is fantastic. These books that Greig writes, they’re suspense, they keep you at the edge of your seat. I can’t wait for his next book to come out, maybe another Alex Hunter series. It is very well worth the price for a great story.

Another Exceptional Tale

He did it again. This was another gripping tale that I found myself listening too far too much, more than I planned as I had great trouble putting it down.

The narrator mispronunciations are distracting

Narrator is fine but the direction is terrible mispronunciations abound , good story though and worth a credit.

Just so disappointed

This story is chocked full of disjointed connections. As if the author was grasping at anything that would fit and make some sense to move the story forward to the finish deadline. I kept catching incidences of this, paused, and wondered what was up with that?
I like Greig Beck as an Author, mostly. Sometime the pressure of producing something, anything, really shows! I am just so disappointed with this book.

Fun story, decent narrator, terrible dialogue.

Writers tend to struggle with dialogue, and this author certainly does. Also, you don't need to TELL me how badass a character is so constantly. You simply need to show me. It makes it really hard to believe when I'm being told how to think of a character instead of letting me get there by myself.

This has been one of the best audible books I’ve listened to yet. I can’t wait for the sequels. Movie potential here! 😉

Seems as if changed writer halfway through

Starts as a horror inspired by The thing with a god mixed of characters and an interesting monster.

However by the end it becomes just a shoot em up with cheesy characters and an really obvious ending.
