Description

East Antarctica: the coldest, most desolate location on earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a 6,000 square mile liquid lake, over 1,000 feet deep, left untouched for more than 15 million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life-forms long believed extinct - and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man.

In this sequel to The Loch and prequel to Meg: Nightstalkers, New York Times best-selling author Steve Alten offers listeners a crossover novel that features characters from two of his most popular series.

Id have to say I was greatly disappointed

Initially I was excited for the sequel to The Loch, and it started well ... But then it took turns that just kept being more and more disjointed and entirely out of character for the genre. I was completely confused about what I was listening to and what had happened to the actual plot. Seemed like someone took one story and tried to ram it into another story, by another author, in an obscure and entirely different genre. Having purchased and listened to most of the authors work, including every Meg story, I was completely unimpressed to the point that I returned it after suffering through it to the garbage conclusion.

exhausting.

tiresome rants on theoretical physics made it hard to maintain interest. basic premise was good. author should have followed original storyline.

Seems as if Author Lost His Way w/Plot

PJ Ochlan did another great job. So, I still hate Brandy. This book went from 1) drilling through the ice in the Antarctic; 2) investigating what was beneath; to a Chinese spy?; 3) to having to traverse land (?) to set up some relays; 4) to a less than calm UFO hunting sub pilot; 5) to an alien spaceship; 6) to being transported thru a portal; 7) to talking with an alien ?. I gave up at this point. I really didn't understand how you could be under the water in a sub only to find land? The author just really lost his way.

good but more sci-fi

Any additional comments?

this book starts off like meg or the loch, feels very familiar. about half way thru it becomes a sci-fi story, and not monsters but space. i think this is the root of the negative reviews. it is out of character but it doesn't make the book bad. just go into this book knowing there is a turn.

horrificly bad book.

starts off great in the tradition of The Meg. but then half way through when it's at a great exciting part with prehistoric monsters and a life threatening situation; jumps into aliens, time, travel, and alternate universes. never gets back to the original story line. I thought I'd accidentally started another (and horribly boring) book. it's like the author had a nervous breakdown. just horribly ruined the book. I may never put up another book from hom after this failure. what a shame.

Strong start, but then it fell apart

This book had a strong start, consistent with the previous book "The Loch". However, it wandered off into fantasy and metaphysical philosophy and became impossible to really follow. The main character jumped from reality to reality with no bridging just suddenly in another time/place/ story. I did not finish this book, it became too painful.

The loc was great but................

This story started out great if you want another monster in the deep story ,but the author flipped the script half way through and you end up on space ships talking to imaginary aliens in another dimension, I mean jeeez stick to what the book should be about , or start over and write a book about aliens (which I would probably listen too)....I'm just saying !

Not what I was expecting.

I have read several of Steve Alten's books and I was looking for a similar story here. While Vostok has its classic moments, the story line veered far too into the strange and absurd. I do enjoy a good sci-if story but it did not feel like it belonged in this one. Aliens, out of body experiences, time travel, it just did not sit well with me and it was incredibly boring and confusing throughout most of the book. I had to stop before the ending because I could t take it anymore. Additionally, this particular narrator is dry unless he is performing with some kind of accent. The narrator from most of the Meg books is far superior.

please no aliens

this book was read well but alien aspect of this book was way too much. Had a good ending what took you down a rabbit hole that was hard to keep up with. Don't like the other planet and alien language that was used in the book

Wow!

Narrator was great. This story, however, hmmm. I think the author has finally lost his mind. This is probably the last of his books I will read.
