Book Description

The ORIGINAL Report from Europa...

When evidence of microscopic life on Europa—Jupiter’s sixth moon—is discovered, a crew of astronauts and scientists embark on a mission to discover its source. Led by oceanographer and biologist, Kathy Connelly, the crew is charged with the task of melting through miles of ice to the hidden ocean beneath, where the search for alien microorganisms begins. But a startling discovery awaits them on the surface of Europa—life.

Vast fields of red, plant-like organisms fill the cracks crisscrossing the moon’s surface, surviving on nutrients welling up from the waters below. Encouraged by the discovery of life on the surface, Connelly and her crew activate the Thermal Exploratory System and melt through the ice toward a world that does not want to be found, toward an intelligence that will do anything to make sure they never leave.

BENEATH takes all of the action, thrills, imagination and strange creatures that Jeremy Robinson is known for and puts them in the most extreme environment imaginable: the surface and sub-ice ocean of a moon four hundred million miles away from Earth.

This updated edition has been re-edited, revised, repackaged and expanded, making this new edition of BENEATH superior to all that came before. Be sure to look for Robinson’s early standalone novels, which have likewise been revised.


This e-book contains and excerpt of ORIGIN by J.A. Konrath

Editorial Reviews



<img src="//" align="left" />

"Here's a near-future space adventure that's as frightening as it is smart. Jeremy Robinson's BENEATH is packed with believable tech, a page-turning story and an alien intelligence so creepy, you'll pray NASA never makes it past the moon." 
--J.C. Hutchins, author of PERSONAL EFFECTS: DARK ART and 7th SON: DESCENT

"Jeremy Robinson hits his stride in BENEATH. His story-telling is as tight as ever, delivering thrills that raise the heart rate and science detail that gets the mind cranking just has hard. An evocative blend of Crichton and Clarke, BENEATH is destined to become an instant new media classic." 
--Phil Rossi, Best Selling author of CRESCENT, and EDEN

"Robinson grabbed my attention in the first chapter, and kept hold of it. BENEATH isn't your run of the mill way distant future fantasy sci-fi. It reads like its real, like it could happen today...but we hope and pray it doesn't." 
--Basil Sands, author of 65 BELOW

"Masterful Craftsmanship...a chilling tale that finally answers the question: Are we alone?"


"Jeremy Robinson is the next James Rollins"
--Chris Kuzneski, NY Times bestselling author of THE SECRET CROWN

"There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom." 
--Jeff Long, NY Times bestselling author of THE DESCENT

"Jeremy Robinson is an original and exciting voice."
--Steve Berry, NY Times bestselling author of THE EMPEROR'S TOMB

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't fire your editor just yet, Jeremy April 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I understand that Jeremy Robinson posted this unpublished, unedited novel for sale on the Kindle as an experiment, but it really isn't in shape to be sold. There is a reason why authors work with editors--they help strengthen the work. Then again, I'm biased; I'm an editor.

Ultimately, I give this novel three stars, because my frustration with sloppy story-telling, ridiculous science, and unforgivable typographic errors was balanced by Robinson's pulpy inventiveness and a sense of fun. This novel was completely ridiculous, but I just can't deny that I had a good time reading it. And it was a quick read, so I'm being generous. (BTW, Kindle readers--it's a REALLY quick read, as the novel stops at the 84% mark. The rest of the file is filled with promotional excerpts of other novels.)

The story opens with a team of researchers in the Arctic. A meteorite hunter witnesses a meteorite's fall to the ice. He and his colleagues find the rock, but close contact with this object spells disaster. In the worst way imaginable, we may just have found proof of life on other planets--or moons as the case may be. The meteorite fell from Europa, one of Jupiter's moons.

On the other side of the planet, Kathy Connelly and her colleagues are about to finally fulfill a goal years in the making. They're about to engage their innovative ice drilling technology to reach liquid water deep under the Antarctic ice. It'll be the discovery of a lifetime! But at the penultimate moment the organization that funds their research calls them back.

And as suddenly as that, this team of researchers is on a crash training course for a space mission. Forget finding liquid water in Antarctica, they're going to drill for water on Europa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected November 9, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book with the understanding that it was self published because Jeremy Robinson couldn't get a publisher since the book is science fiction. What a shame. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were many twists and turns that I didn't expect and it was very well paced. I judge a book on some pretty simple criteria: 1. Was it fun to read? 2. Did I like the characters? A resounding yes to both.

I highly recommend this book to any fiction fan. Although it is classified as Sci-Fi, it is really more of a thriller in a setting other than Earth. The entire time I was reading I had a picture of what this would look like as a movie. Very well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars BENEATH by Jeremy Robinson February 2, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Every now and again I'll stumble across an author that will completely shake up my world of reading. Jeremy Robinson is one of them. His writing is among the ranks of authors like Stuart Woods and Douglas Preston. He's a master at writing, with each page playing out like a movie in your head.

Pulse (A Chess Team Adventure) was an incredibly fun and entertaining read, so when I was given an advanced opportunity to read BENEATH I jumped at it. Three words can describe what I thought of BENEATH: Scary as hell! What a crazy story. A metorite crashes on earth, lending credence that perhaps we're not alone in this universe. After an incredible elevator ride into space (based on fact mind you) a research team is off to discover life on another planet, life that exists beneath a hellish-surface that has remained untouched by man since creation. What follows is a mass of insanity that'll have you talking and thinking long after you've turned the last page.

BENEATH is a science fiction thriller with a twist of fear that will leave you holding your breath and a MUST HAVE for any fiction-lover's library.

- Dan.[...]

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it...Movie Material! October 29, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read most of Jeremy's books and look forward to more like "Beneath". I was glued to it the entire time. Who other than Robinson can make a cucumber creepy...even deadly. I loved it. And for under $3! Why is anyone complaining? Great characters. Great vision. Great work.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Robinson's best February 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read most of Jeremy Robinson's books and liked them all so far. He mixes action with science and the subjects of his stories are always intruiging. Beneath is about alien life from Europa, Jupiter's frozen moon. The moon has oceans under the ice that we have yet to explore. It's the best possibility for life in our solar system since we know there's none on Mars. The pace is fast from the first chapter on. And there's plenty of action throughout. When I heard about this one only being released as an ebook it was frustrating. (Kindles are a bit pricy) Then I found out the ebook can be bought and read on the computer. I usually read a book a week, this one took two sittings. If you are a fan of James Rollins or Preston/Child, I highly reccomend Beneath. Also check out Pulse, the first in Robinson's Chess team series. Instinct, the sequel comes out in April.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea, but stupidty should die December 29, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There were a number of typos/word swaps in it that I could ignore (There/they're/their for instance). And the idea and concept were interesting. But after a while the characters just kept making stupid decision over and over and over again. I'm about 54% thru the book and don't know if I'll finish it. For folks who are supposed to be the best of the best, very clinical, etc, they're a bunch of IDIOTS!!! After a while you kind of just want all of them to die because they're too stupid to live. Ugh.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not hard-SF at all, more on the not-so-well-documented technothriller...
Nice scifi thriller on a first contact at Saturn moons. Enjoyable, but not hard-SF at all, more on the not-so-well-documented technothriller side.
