Praise for The Antarktos Saga:
"Jeremy Robinson is an original and exciting voice. Antarktos Rising has just the right blend of menace and normality--a tale full of intrigue, treachery, and a wealth of secrets. A good old-fashioned suspense story set in one of the most desolate places of earth. It fires on all cylinders in a smart, taut thrill."
--Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
"An awesome journey into the beating heart of a legend. Jules Verne would be proud."
--Stel Pavlou, international bestselling author of DECIPHER and GENE
A fast-paced chiller that delves into new possibilities about our future...and past."
--Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author
"How do you find an original story idea in the crowded action-thriller genre? Two words: Jeremy Robinson. Antartkos combines history, science and myth about Antarctica to create a jaw-dropping concept so real it will have you Googling like mad to learn more after the story is finished."
--Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author
"...an enjoyable page-turner as survivors of a massive cataclysm vie for fertile territory. In the midst of all this excitement, recently thawed ancient beings provide an obstacle to the survival of the human race. Robinson throws in Biblical creatures -- the Nephilim -- and an adequate smattering of historical references to make this apocalyptic disaster thriller an entertaining and engaging read..."
--Tampa Bay Newspapers
From the Author
I get a lot of requests for sequels for all my novels and series, but one stands out above the rest: The Last Hunter/Antarktos Universe. I have resisted for a long time, because I felt my time with Solomon (other than his recent appearance in Project Legion) had come to a very satisfying closure. That said, when it came time to put out The Last Hunter Collected Edition, I included a short story featuring Solomon's daughters, Aquila and Norah.
I'm very excited for my readers to return to Antarktos, and to introduce them to Tori's writing. If you enjoy your trip to Antarktos, please post a review on Amazon or Goodreads when you're done. Every one helps a lot!

This was such a good story and it was very cool to return to the Antarktos a few years down the road. I can only hope that there will be more stories in the future.
Robinson has done many coauthored works over the years but his last two coauthored projects have really taken things to the next level. The Last Valkyrie and The Distance are both excellent examples of collaborative writing done right. Both books had a distinctive style that set them apart from Robinson’s solo works. While I loved his previous collaborative works, I usually saw little difference between them and his other books. So, I really liked that Hilaree Robinson and Tori Paquette were able to bring their own unique style to these works. I would really like to see more works from these two, either collaborations or their own stories. The other thing I really liked about these books is that I never saw any elements of the stories that were clearly the work of one author or the other. With some collaborative works, it is clear that certain parts are the work of one author in particular. Robinson’s latest books do not have this issue; the stories feel like balanced mixes of both authors’ ideas and styles.
The last Valkyrie is a great new addition to the Antarktos saga and brings many new elements to the mythology of this world. This story is full of fantastic locations and amazing creature, both familiar and unknown. The story is a tale of self-discovery and a perilous journey. The setup is straight forward but the story is still suspenseful and delivers several surprising twists.
I really liked the main character in this one. Considering the world she grew up in, Norah’s strengths and weaknesses are believable and make for a compelling character. Norah is different than many of Robinson’s previous protagonists; not really ready for the deadly dangers of her world, but strong enough to keep going through every trial she faces. One of the biggest reasons I liked this book is that it combined the excellent character development from Robinson’s most recent works like The Distance with the thrilling action and adventure that has been Robinsons trademark since the original Antarktos story.
Altogether this was a great book and if a sequel is ever published, I will buy it and read it right away.
