Fantastic to read the events from another point of view. Really loving this Last Hunter series. Well worth the read.

Was really entertaining and fast reading. I had to pull out the bible a few times to follow the books references.

I don't write very many reviews but this one is one of my favorit books I just had to write a review. Jeremy Robinson is one of a handful of authors that I can pick up one of their novels and know I am going to love it. Antarktos Rising is for anyone who loves Adventure, Action, suspense, and monsters. This book starts off quick and never lets up. Robinson, please keep these books coming, I hang on every page!

Great read with a twist to the fallen and precursor society genre.
Twists and turns make it a Page Turner.

entertaining. Based on lots of historical theory with authors embellishments. A good read.

This is a fantastic book and I can't wait for another of Jeremy Robinson's books. Put me on the waiting list. This is a must read is you like James Rollins books. Jeremy Robinson is a incredible story teller and makes his characters shine. Jeremy Robinson is now on my must have hardcover list.

This book was a great read. I would recommend it second only behind Stel Pavlou's Decipher for Hollywood to produce. I have corresponded with both authors and they are truly talented artists. May the Mayans be wrong or may their fruits become movies before 2012. The book was full of action and mystery. It centered around one of my favorite topics, the origin of civilization. I am glad Mr. Robinson ran into me on the internet.

i really hoped this book, this author would become one of my new favorties. i saw so many four and five star ratings and thought it must be a great read but not so much. written as if based on a sort of canned formula. very very predictable and the author's grasp of the most basic science facts is horrible. sad my youngest now in fourth grade read the book after i did and even he noticed how many facts the author got wrong. i love science fiction and have most of my life which is why it is so disappointing to read a book with so much potential only to be let down by an author who for example knows absolutely nothing about the richter scale yet uses it within the book. sorry but a 6.0 quake is not the largest ever on this earth nor is it as in this instance capable of,...its just sloppy so many errors that could so easily have been avoided. i can and have read good "B Movie" type books before but this is NOT one of them nor is it in the same league as what one would expect from classic sci-fi either. i should have paid more attention to the warning on the author's Wiki page,take a look at the warning there and you'll understand. this was my second book by this particular author wanted to give a second chance but no matter the stars given by others this really is poorly written book. so much unrealized potential and thats sad because it could have been so much better if only he'd taken the time to get the science basics/facts right or at least up to a level that doesn't insult the reader's intelligence. the author is a very prolific writer and he is creative i will give him that and for those who can read a book and aren't bothered by "the details" you may well find reading this book to be a much more enjoyable experience than i did. a good analogy, think bad 1950's B movie.

Overall I liked the book. The premise -- an apocalyptic crustal-shift leaving Antarctica as the new hope for civilization -- was very interesting and backed up by enough thought to make it somewhat plausible. Additionally, the intertwining of religious thought and history into the plot was done very well and is what I believe to be the book's strong suit.

That being said, don't shy away from this read if you are worried that it will get too "preachy." It doesn't. The author incorporates a great deal of Biblical history -- well as pagan history -- very well into the story line without making it seem like an apologetic work or that of an average Christian fiction work. To be honest, I have no idea if the author is Christian; he just incorporates Biblical history into his plot in a very easy manner.

The writing is fast-paced and never seems to slow down or get boring. The characters are fairly basic, but a connection is well-developed with a couple of the main protagonists.

And on that note, my one complaint: why, oh why must current action stories -- be they movies or novels -- always include the "strong chick" who is better than any man at things like shooting/fighting/soldiering? One of the women in the book was a mercenary sniper (tons of those out there) who was, according to the plot, better than anything the US Army had at its disposal. Oh and then what came up? The *only* person in the world who was as good as her was, wait for it...another female gun-for-hire, trained by the same person.

Seriously, can we stop with that, already? The entire planet being covered in snow and Antarctica turning into a jungle is far more believable than that already-tired character line. It didn't make it a bad book; rather, it was distracting from the story and added absolutely nothing.

But back to the book, I recommend it for anyone who liked, for example, Jurassic Park and James Rollins novels. It is a quick read with some definite educational potential, as well (without giving too much away).
