He has characters that laugh in the face of death, that are always the good guys, that help little old ladies across the street, etc. The bad guys are really bad, and the situations always intense. Everything you could ask for in good escapist literature.

For quite some time now Cussler has been co-authoring his books, and also introducing new characters, and they are just as good as the ones he did by himself. The new characters are fascinating, and really brought to life well in the books. In Fire Ice he follows all his previous books in starting with a tragedy that happened in the past, and then eventually tying it to the present in some novel way. In Fire Ice, it involved the Romanovs.

If you haven't read a Clive Cussler novel yet, I envy you for all the great stories you have ahead of you. You always are in a hurry to see how things turn out, and then you wished you read slower, because you don't know what to do now that you don't have another of his books to read.

Cussler explains the title as the common term for methane hydrate which can be under water (ocean) or swamps. I have enjoyed all of the Cussler books in the Fargo Series and, thus, have transitioned to the Dirk Pitt and NUMA series which also please me. Fire Ice , the third in the NUMA series, is my favorite because of its intense drama and non-stop action. Cussler's villain and NUMA's opposition is Mikhail Razov, a Cossack by birth, who envisions using his wealth to restore a Russian regime such as that of Peter the Great or Iran the Terrible. You will eventually see the connection between Razov and Fire Ice.

The Character builds are well done, complimenting the Numa Heroes & Team. The action & plot called for Page turning, immersing this reader into the story as it grabbed & held his interest.

Thank you for another Cussler riveting experience.

Best Regards,
Steve Hager

Fire Ice was my first Cussler read. I went into it knowing nothing about the author and I was very young when I read it so that might be why it did not make an impression on me at all. It was exciting in parts and it was nice to read a thriller that takes place outside of courtrooms and interrogation rooms but the adventure didn't fascinate me beyond a three star mark. It seemed a little bloated with plots for overthrowing other countries and so on. Again, maybe I have the wrong impression, but that is precisely why I have avoided Tom Clancy's massive books. Sometimes the large, sprawling plots are a bit much to take in, or at least they were when I was younger.

Another great Cussler tale with more changes in direction than you could ever imagine. As usual, a bit of a tedious start, but lots of action to counterbalance the story as a whole. Hard to put it down for the last 30%.
