Book Description

Hans Swensen is a man in a very difficult position -- he knows something that is putting his people in peril, but to do anything to help them he must confront his dominating cousin who is the obsessive ruler of his nation.

Will Duncan is a teenager who does not want to go on a family vacation.

As The Secret Power Beneath unfolds these two characters' destinies collide in a story full of tension, drama and adventure.

Will and his younger sister find themselves lost in a cold and barren Scandinavian wilderness and accidentally stumble across a world and society that is impossible to impossible to imagine -- built in cave systems underneath a Norwegian mountain range.

Having learned of this secret world, the Will and Natalie are taken captive to prevent knowledge of this nation becoming known to the world. The two find themsleves in a seeming Utopia -- all made possible because the people here possess a technology that produces unlimited amounts of energy that allows for an incredibly advanced civilization hidden from the rest of planet earth.

It doesn't take long, however for the captives to understand that despite the wonderful technology, this society is far from perfect. The orderliness and physical perfection comes at a price -- the price of human freedom. And there is another problem -- there is something going on that threatens the very survival of this nation, and it is knowledge of this threat that causes Hans Swensen to challenge the powers that be who are intolerant of dissent.

Will and Natalie find themselves in increasingly dangerous and threatening situations and become caught up in events that test them to the core. Will they ever see their loved ones on the outside again?

The Secret Power Beneath is a story for readers of all ages which looks at how advanced technology can be used to shape society and explores the great human themes of love, family, freedom, powert, courage and hope.

As we look at some of the advanced energy technologies showing up on the horizon today, could we some day be facing issues that are considered in this ebook?

4.0 out of 5 stars Review from Hampton Reviews October 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars. A fun and interesting read.
What would you do if you stumbled into an underground city while on vacation? That is just part of the challenge Will and Natalie Duncan face when they go on a family vacation inNorway.
The Secret Power Of Beneath is the story of a young man and his discovery and stay in an underground city located in the mountains inNorwaycalled Bergsland.
Bergsland is a city filled with advancements and technology never seen on the outside. It is also home to the secret of a new method of powering that technology. The city is ruled by a counsel and president that's primary focus is keeping the secret of that power source.
My favorite character in The Secret Power of Beneath is definitely Anna. She is a resident of Bergsland, but she bonds very quickly with Will and Natalie. What really impressed me about this young woman is her loyalty to her friends and her strength even through sever diversity.
I really enjoyed The Secret Power of Beneath. The characters are well developed and the story moves along at a great pace. The scenes are well described and vivid.
I am definitely looking forward to more from Frank Acland.

4.0 out of 5 stars recommended read September 9, 2011
By GL Lear
Format:Kindle Edition
I started the book thinking it was not exactly my genre, but I soon found myself absorbed in this intriguing story, never boring. This is the kind of novel which I cannot wait to read, because I am curious to see where the story leads. At the same time I like to wait in order not to finish the book too quickly: I like to "stay" with and think about the characters and enjoy them longer.
The ending too is anything but disappointing.
I really recommend it! Especially if English is not your mother tongue and you would practise the language, you will easily find yourself immerse in this parallel world and will flow to the end without effort!

The editing mistakes slightly take from an otherwise entertaining read. Sack the proof reader for book 2 and I for one look forward to seeing what happens next.

A great pastime read from a new author. It contains enough adventure, family activity, and suspense to keep me reading all the way through. A good read for every reading member of the family.
Looking forward to more from this writer.

This is a really interesting story line. I was enjoying the unfolding of the story when I swear it suddenly speeded up to 100 mph and ended. Good idea, characters I had began to like then,....... the end

More About the Author

I was born and raised in England, and have been living in the United States for over twenty years now.

I have been involved in various writing projects over the years, but have only recently completed my first work of fiction: The Secret Power Beneath. The book is written to be suitable for readers of all ages

The book has sprung out of my interest in the impact that technological innovation can have on the world, and looks at technology in the light of universal themes: love, freedom and power.
