A team of U.S. scientists makes an amazing discovery at an ice station in Antarctica: something buried deep within the coastal ice shelf; something made of metal . . . something worth killing for.
The first in the series about Marine Lieutenant Shane M. Schofield, call-sign Scarecrow. I read Scarecrow a few months ago and loved it from the start, so I was curious as to what the start of the series was like.
Let me tell you, it was as good as the third book in the series. It pulls the reader in and it doesn't spit him/her out until the very end. Engrossing, gripping, action-packed, sometimes you'll even need some suspension of disbelief, let me tell you, but I absolutely enjoyed the ride.
The action was wonderful, the suspense gripping, the plot flowed effortlessly, the characters were great (I still love 'Mother' best), the mystery kept on, the intrigue was thrilling...It kept me guessing and at the edge of my seat for the entire duration.
Loved it from beginning to end and I can't wait to start the second book.
