Book Description

Deep beneath the Ural Mountains, in an underground city carved out by slave labor during the darkest hours of the Cold War, ancient caverns hold exotic and dangerous life-forms that have evolved in isolation for countless millennia. Cut off from the surface world, an entire ecosystem of bizarre subterranean species has survived undetected—until now.

Biologists Nell and Geoffrey Binswanger barely survived their last encounter with terrifying, invasive creatures that threatened to engulf the planet. They think the danger is over until a ruthless Russian tycoon lures them to his underground metropolis, where they find themselves confronted by a vicious menagerie of biological horrors from their past—and by entirely new breeds of voracious predators. Now they’re rising up from the bowels of the Earth to consume the world as we know it.

USA Today praised Warren Fahy's debut novel, Fragment, as “a rollicking tale [that] will enthrall readers of Jurassic Park and The Ruins.” Now Fahy sets off an even more thrilling stampede of action and suspense, bursting forth from the hellish depths of...Pandemonium.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

“Warren Fahy’s Pandemonium is pure genius, an otherworldly wonder as creative as the best of Jules Verne. Here is riveting scientific speculation paired with bravado storytelling. I want more!”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Bloodline

“What do you get when you cross Jurassic Park with an ancient underground city? The answer is Pandemonium, an exciting read from thriller author Warren Fahy.”
—Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of Meg and The Loch

“Warren Fahy's new novel Pandemonium is probably the best high-tech thriller I've read since The Mote in God’s Eye. My heart was pounding (literally) from page one. Can't wait for his next tale.
—David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of Castro’s Daughter 

“An expertly crafted, heart-stopping tale of darkness and danger that I will not soon forget.”
—Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of The Grays

*********SPOILER-FREE REVIEW************

The first book in the series, Fragment, presented a very unique and original storyline that dealt with an offshoot or "fragment" of evolution by explaining, through real science and speculation, what could happen if a land mass was isolated and allowed to evolve undisturbed for 500 million years. In Pandemonium, Warren Fahy brings us another untouched world deep in the Ural Mountains.

Pandemonium wastes no time jumping right back into the story from where the first book ended. A megalomaniac Russian oligarch has founded an underground city, but something is preventing the power from being turned on. Who does he enlist to help solve the problem but our favorite heroes from Fragment. Once the team is back together in the underground city, all hell, or shall we say "pandemonium", breaks loose.

While Fragment was heavy on the scientific explanations, while still packing a lot of action and adventure, the opposite can be said for Pandemonium. The science aspect is still there but the action has been ratcheted up several notches. The world building in Pandemonium is once again right up there with the complexity of Hender's Island. Warren Fahy builds a completely new ecosystem from the ground up and explains it in a way that makes sense, from the base of the food chain all the way up to the new and deadly apex predator.

My criticism for the novel is short. There were a couple minor errors dealing with timescale in the plot and an ambiguity about a certain characters "armor". These points, however, are so minor as to take nothing away from the broad scope of the novel and, I feel, should have been caught by the editor.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Another World Down There March 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
In Fragment, Fahy created an island, a sliver or fragment of a continent that broke way from the mainland hundreds of millions of years ago. Evolution had taken a twist and a turn and given us some of the most bizarre and fantastic creatures i had ever read about -- or so i thought.

Fahy turns his prodigious imagination to a massive cave system below the Ural Mountains, there another world has been discovered, and this one just as bizarre and deadly as Henders Island. What would happen if the two worlds collided? Could mankind ever hope to survive?

I loved this book, and can only hope there is more to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thriller to read more than once March 22, 2013
Best thriller in memory, more breathtaking even than its brilliant precursor, Fragment, by the same author. Wonderful, strong, original characters evolve as the story develops. The descriptions of the underground setting, a cavern in Russia with an entire newly discovered but very ancient ecosystem of incredibly scary and authentically drawn creatures, let you feel you're actually there, like watching a 3D movie. Fahy has done his research well, in the geology of caves and the evolutionary biology of life forms, and describes them with great realism.

The complex plot is masterminded by a Russian oligarch who has developed a huge underground city with tourism in mind, built on the caves and tunnels originally dug by Stalin as a get-away during the Cold War. We meet again our scientist friends from Fragment's Henders Island adventure, Nell and Geoffrey, and the amazing intelligent hendros rescued from Henders Island. They become involved in an ever more terrifying sequence of events as humans battle Nature's most perverse and destructive inventions. It is a masterfully constructed rollercoaster ride of accelerating terror and treachery, ameliorated only by the spectrum of courage, loyalty, love and friendship among the leading characters. Sadly, one of my favorite characters does perish.

Pandemonium is a book I couldn't put down, caught in the author's web of heart-pounding suspense, and that goes for my second reading of it, too. Every detail fits in the right place, at the right moment, with the right words to savor. Yet there is no second-guessing the outcome. Fahy always has another surprise in store, to the last paragraph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring On PANDEMONIUM March 21, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you have read the previous reviews of PANDEMONIUM, you have a pretty good idea of the story and the places to which the reader will travel. But even with this previous knowledge of where or what you are about to encounter, allow yourself to feel all the wonder of the unknown, the anticipation, the awe of discovery, the humor and fright that comes from the pages of this book.

Fahy builds his scenes carefully and they are remarkably fun sometimes, and simply horrifying at others. I found myself chuckling and gasping from chapter to chapter. His undergound creation and its awesome features and creatures are unlike anything previously imagined.

In the final chapters, when all havoc has broken out with all of the species attempting to stay alive, I was holding my breath again and again. What was happening was sheer and unique creativity at work.

I have read FRAGMENT, the prequel to PANDEMONIUM, and although a few references to this previous work are mentioned, they were handled so clearly and briefly that they had no effect on the continuity of this story. It was necessary, of course, to explain to a new reader how the amazing sels came to be a part of this book.

Without FRAGMENT there would never have been PANDEMONIUM but, I, personally, enjoyed this book more than FRAGMENT.

FANGORIA on FRAGMENT: "I haven't had this much fun reading a science/adventure thriller since Jurassic Park. For the last half I was frozen in place-I couldn't move, couldn't talk. I even teared up a couple of times in pure joy. It took hours for the adrenaline to wear off."
