PRAISE FOR BENEATH:

<img src="//bit.ly/ZbYvPN" 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?" 
--thenovelblog.com

"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

I understand that Jeremy Robinson posted this unpublished, unedited novel for sale on the Kindle as an experiment, but it really isn't in shape to be sold.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.

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.

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.

I took a chance on this book as I had tried to read Ragnarok & couldn't read more than a chapter it was so convoluted & confusing. My husband is a big Science fiction fan & enjoyed this previous book a lot more than myself. That said the author throws every cliche you ever have read about in Science fiction at the wall & makes it all work.

The plot is thoughtful, well written & as believable as Science Fiction can be! The characters at first seem poorly written as I think most scientists are more cautions then these people. All the characters are driven by psychological problems which, for traveling in outer space might not have been chosen to go, as you think there would be other scientists with less baggage. I did like that all the characters have time in the book to develop, correct their psychological problems, & be better scientists for the future.

My only complaint is the first few characters you meet are just that you meet them, one dies which no one seems to concerned about, & the companion to the man who dies spends the whole book being enslaved kind of a bit player sadly. His character never seems to develop he's just the "front" man.

It is true the ending I felt was flat & a let down. Obviously the author isn't planning a sequel.

I have been a steady reader of Jeremy Robinson for a few years now however I am only recently going back and reading some his "Origins" series...his first set of stand alone novels. Beneath is one of those novels and it is a very well done sci-fi space exploration novel. Set in the near future, a team of scientists and specialists make the long journey to the Jupiter moon of Europa in search of life beneath the ice. Certain events on Earth at the beginning of the novel lead them on this journey and also provide subtle clues to the underlying story line. What this team discovers is not only amazing but also life threatening and possibly even evil. There is plausible hard science mixed with the fantastic which, in my opinion, forms the basis of good, entertaining science fiction. I did find one of the main protagonists a bit annoying but I will not divulge which one for fear of tainting the future readers opinions. I was also slightly bothered by how professionals on a long distance space expedition could make such stupid decisions but that actually gets sorted out late in the novel...can someone say "mind control"! Overall however I found "Beneath" to be a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining read.
