Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A research vessel studying the effects of sea life around the Great Pacific Garbage Patch lands in a storm, and the ship and crew find themselves on a mysterious island. They have no memory of how they were stranded, and evidence of sabotage makes the stituation all the stranger. Mark Hawkins leads the survivors on a trek to find answers, but they start vanishing one by one. It soon becomes apparent that the ship and crew were brought to this island for a reason, and the truth—there are crazed scientists on the island, and you know what horrific stuff they do—could destroy their lives forever. Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans, and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands. --Jeff Ayers

Review

“Robinson puts his distinctive mark on Michael Crichton territory with this terrifying present-day riff on The Island of Dr. Moreau… One of the best Jurassic Park successors.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“[Island 731's] premise is reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau, but the author adds a World War II back story...vivisection, genetic engineering, Black Ops, animal husbandry and mayhem. This is the stuff that comic books, video games and successful genre franchises are made of.” ―Kirkus

“Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans, and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands.” ―Booklist

“A book full of adventure and suspense that shows ‘science' in a whole new horrific light. This is one creepy tale that will keep you up all night! And it is so well written you will think twice before taking a vacation to any so-called ‘Island Paradise!'” ―Suspense Magazine

“The popcorn novel of the summer has arrived, and Jeremy Robinson delivers an action fest that rivals the best of James Rollins, Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly... The combination of Mad Max, I Am Legend and Where Eagles Dare provides a fresh take on the end of the world that is riveting from the first page. SecondWorld is a guaranteed one-sitting read that would make a terrific summer movie.” ―Associated Press on SecondWorld

“Relentless pacing and numerous plot twists drive this compelling stand-alone from Robinson (Threshold)… Thriller fans and apocalyptic fiction aficionados alike will find this audaciously plotted novel enormously satisfying.” ―Publishers Weekly on SecondWorld

“A brisk thriller with neatly timed action sequences, snappy dialogue and the ultimate sympathetic figure in a badly burned little girl with a fighting spirit... The Nazis are determined to have the last gruesome laugh in this efficient doomsday thriller.” ―Kirkus Reviews on SecondWorld

“Compellingly written… Gripping, propelled by expertly controlled pacing and lively characters…. Robinson's punchy prose style will appeal to fans of Matthew Reilly's fast-paced, bigger-than-life thrillers, but this is in no way a knockoff. It's a fresh and satisfying thriller that should bring its author plenty of new fans.” ―Booklist on SecondWorld

“Another crisply plotted tale from the fertile imagination of Jeremy Robinson. This one has it all, frozen Nazis, UFO crashes, Antarctica, and some really cool science. Plan to hunker down for all-nighter with this one. I did.” ―Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key, on SecondWorld

“SecondWorld is far from second best. Jeremy Robinson's latest thriller is massive in scope and brilliantly apocalyptic. Here is a feat of storytelling that shocks as much as it exhilarates.” ―James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Bloodline, on SecondWorld

“Robinson blends myth, science and terminal velocity action like no one else.” ―Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal, on SecondWorld

“The year 2012 is synonymous with Doomsday, but what if the cause of the chaos to come was. . .Adolf Hitler? Read SecondWorld, a new treat from Jeremy Robinson.” ―Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of Meg & Grim Reaper: End of Days, on SecondWorld

“A harrowing, edge of your seat thriller told by a master storyteller, Jeremy Robinson's SecondWorld is an amazing, globetrotting tale that will truly leave breathless.” ―Richard Doetsch, international bestselling author of Half-Past Dawn, on SecondWorld

“Just when you think that 21st-century authors have come up with every possible way of destroying the world, along comes Jeremy Robinson.” ―

, New Hampshire Magazine on SecondWorld

“Among writers of thrillers with scientific themes, Jeremy Robinson writes the best action. I'm including James Rollins here, folks. If Rollins is a 9 for action, Robinson is a 10.” ―ScienceThrillers.com on SecondWorld

“Jeremy Robinson's Threshold is one hell of a thriller, wildly imaginative and diabolical, which combines ancient legends and modern science into a non-stop action ride that will keep you turning the pages until the wee hours. Relentlessly gripping from start to finish, don't turn your back on this book!” ―Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Impact and Blasphemy, on Threshold

“With Threshold Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory. Fast-paced, action-packed and wonderfully creepy! Highly recommended!” ―Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The King of Plagues and Rot & Ruin, on Threshold

Threshold is a blisteringly original tale that blends the thriller and horror genres in a smooth and satisfying hybrid mix. With his new entry in the Jack Sigler series, Jeremy Robinson plants his feet firmly on territory blazed by David Morrell and James Rollins. The perfect blend of mysticism and monsters, both human and otherwise, make Threshold as groundbreaking as it is riveting.” ―Jon Land, New York Times bestselling author of Strong Enough to Die, on Threshold

“Jeremy Robinson is the next James Rollins.” ―Chris Kuzneski, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Throne and The Prophecy, on Threshold

“Jeremy Robinson's Threshold sets a blistering pace from the very first page and never lets up. This globe-trotting thrill ride challenges its well-crafted heroes with ancient mysteries, fantastic creatures, and epic action sequences. For readers seeking a fun rip-roaring adventure, look no further.” ―Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of The Ark, on Threshold

“In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." ...Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet.” ―Publishers Weekly on Threshold

“Robinson's books have the necessary action and engaging characters to make the reader frantically turn the pages, but Threshold elevates Robinson to the highest tier of over-the-top action authors, like Matthew Reilly and James Rollins. Intense and personal, this book is a great launching point for new readers, and it delivers beyond the expectations even of his fans. The next Chess Team adventure cannot come fast enough.” ―Booklist, starred review on Threshold

Threshold is my favorite Jack Sigler Thriller so far... I hope one day to see the Chess Team materialize on the big screen. Robinson artfully weaves the modern day military with ancient history like no one else has and I would love to see the adventures of the Chess team come alive in a movie.” ―deadrobotssociety.com on Threshold

“If you thought Pulse and Instinct were fun, just hold on tight my fellow thriller lovers. Jeremy Robinson pulls out all the stops in Threshold making this the most electrifying installment in the series so far. Robinson somehow takes the Tower of Babel, killer statues, giant lizards and insects, Stonehenge, and medieval lore and mixes it all together in this crazy, relentless story that is simply impossible to put down.... I have a blast every time I pick up a Jeremy Robinson novel and Threshold is no exception. I love authors who are dedicated to continually bringing fresh and original content to their fans, and Robinson continues to find ways to do this. If you are longing for a great thriller writer to follow and are tired of waiting a year or more between novels, then give Jeremy Robinson a chance. He's the perfect combination of quality and frequency in a market that is often lacking both.” ―FictionAddict.com on Threshold

“Jeremy Robinson pulls out all stops in this never-a-dull-moment [novel]... you'll be turning pages faster than you can blink.” ―Bookloons.com on Threshold

“THRESHOLD is absolutely grippin. A truly unique story mixed in with creatures and legendary figures of mythology, technology and more fast-paced action than a Jerry Bruckheimer movie.If you want fast-paced: you got it. If you want action: you got it. If you want mystery: you got it, and if you want intrigue, well, you get the idea. In short, I $@#!$% loved this one.” ―thenovelblog.com on Threshold

“As always the Chess Team is over the top of the stratosphere, but anyone who relishes an action urban fantasy thriller that combines science and mythology will want to join them for the exhilarating Pulse pumping ride.” ―Genre Go Round Reviews on Threshold

Pulse was a video game in print form, and [Instinct] is a tribute to James Cameron's film Aliens. Intense and full of riveting plot twists, it is Robinson's best book yet, and it should secure a place for the Chess Team on the A-list of thriller fans who like the over-the-top style of James Rollins and Matthew Reilly.” ―Booklist on Instinct

“If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team. Instinct riveted me to my chair.” ―Stephen Coonts on Instinct

“Jeremy Robinson is a fresh new face in adventure writing and will make a mark in suspense for years to come.” ―David L. Golemon, New York Times bestselling author of Ancients and Leviathan, on Instinct

“Instinct is a jungle fever of raw adrenaline that goes straight for the jugular.” ―Thomas Greanias, New York Times bestselling author of The Atlantis Revelation and The Promised War, on Instinct

“Robinson's slam-bang second Chess Team thriller [is a] a wildly inventive yarn that reads as well on the page as it would play on a computer screen.” ―Publisher's Weekly on Instinct

“Jeremy Robinson has done it again. INSTINCT is a knock-down, thought inducing, all-out-thrill-fest with enough testosterone to put hair on even the wimpiest of chests. The Chess Team is back and once again they'll travel to the ends of the earth in an effort to save it.” ―thenovelblog.com on Instinct

“Jeremy Robinson's latest novel, Pulse, ratchets his writing to the next level. Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure.” ―James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle, on Pulse

Raiders of the Lost Arc meets Tom Clancy meets Saturday matinee monster flick with myths, monsters, special ops supermen and more high tech weapons than a Bond flick. Pulse is an over-the-top, bullet-ridden good time.” ―Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Contagious and Infected, on Pulse

Pulse contains all of the danger, treachery, and action a reader could wish for. Its band of heros are gutsy and gritty. Robinson's impressive talent is on full display in this one.” ―Steve Berry on Pulse

“Here’s a neat twist: a young adventure thriller writer--whose heroes save the world--saves the world of adventure thrillers. In a genre glutted with popcorn gimmicks and tired rip-offs, Jeremy Robinson dares to craft old-fashioned guilty pleasures--far horizons, ancient maps, and classic monsters--hardwired for the 21st century. 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, New York Times bestselling author of The Descent and Year Zero, on Pulse

Pulse is Jeremy Robinson's best yet. A really intriguing premise, frightening consequences, wrapped up in roaring adventure.” ―Stel Pavlou, International Bestselling author of Decipher, on Pulse

“Greek myth and biotechnology collide in Robinson's first in a new thriller series to feature the Chess Team... Robinson will have readers turning the pages...” ―Publishers Weekly on Pulse

“Robinson's latest reads like a video game with tons of action and lots of carnage....The combination of mythology, technology, and high-octane action proves irresistible.” ―Booklist on Pulse

“PULSE is fun, edge-of-your-seat action laced with questions about humanity and immortality... mixed with witty humor and even something to stimulate my intellect and love for ancient mythology.” ―ThinkHero.com on Pulse
