    The premise of the secret Nazi base in Antarctica, although not original, was promising. Unfortunately it turned out to be the only good part. Everything else - the plot, characters, dialogs - are mediocre at best. I don't plan to read anything else by Preston Child and I will be extra cautious not to confuse him with the brilliant duo of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

    The first half of the book kept me interested and was off to a good start, however after that it devolves into one improbable and poorly plotted event after another. Attempts at a resolution are weak and dissatisfying. I was disappointed.

    This is not Preston and Child, but still good I admit that the only reason I found this author was by doing a search for Preston and Child. The author has definitely benefitted from his name. That said, the first book in this series is good, but the editing leaves a lot to be desired. There are numerous parts in the story that are confusing at first, because it appears to continue on from the last sentence but in truth, should begin another section.

I would be happy to offer my editing services to the author in order to make this a lot more readable. The lack of editing does take away from the story, but if you can get past that, it is an interesting story. I'm looking forward to continuing the series and hope it gets better.

    I was honestly very happily surprised by this book. I think I’ve read too many bad adventure books lately. The characters were well done and had depth to them. They seemed very real - which is rare. And I think one of the things I liked the best was that even minor characters had depth. The adventure was fun and made sense. I’m off to read the second in the series. I hope I’ve found a wonderful new series to read.

    Very far fetched and highly implausible, but a bloody good adventure. Sam Cleave wins his life back after nearly losing it many times as he is drawn into the hunt for a secret Nazi base in Antarctica. Unfortunately, not only explorers are involved. A shadowy neo-nazi organisation has already discovered it. More than the weather threatens Sam and his motley crew of companions. It a good romp with plenty of twists and derring-do. Recommended read.

    The start of the book was interesting and I really enjoyed the sense of mystery (it's my first time reading mystery), but the other half just felt like a bad movie with the plot all over the place and many really bad clichés. Though it entertained through the whole boring day that I was having. If you have nothing else to do this book can be enough to at least keep you from dying from boredness.

    Just ok I’m glad that I got this book for free. I really like thrillers involving Nazi artifacts. The premise of this novel is not original. The writing is not great. However, there is just enough character development to make it readable. Don’t know if I will read the next book in the series.

    This was a pretty good book overall. It started slow and I was about half way through when I realized that nothing had really happened yet. Once it did, though, it ramped up fast and furious and I am looking forward to seeing where this series is going.

    Good read Reads really easy as the characters grow on you and by the end of the book you are left missing them and wanting to pick up the next one. The setting of the adventure was different making the story really interesting.

    I actually read this entire book (which is a testament to entertaining writing), but there were a frustratingly large number of holes in the plot and completely unbelievable events as well as editing errors. The ending was unsatisfying and disappointing with lots of loose ends.

    Enjoyable book Nice blend of old history and new . The ending was surprising but not predictable. One was left wondering about the Fate of some of the crew. ! good read

    Great history and not history novel So descriptive you can visualise the Ice Station. Great twists and suspense well worth reading. I recommend a good way to spend an evening.

    Started out interesting The further you read the more it started to unravel. By the end it was so far from believability, that you wondered why you read it.

    Okay Starts out very well but then drags on. A lot of illogical thought processes which slows the flow as well

    Grand Adventure Interesting story that included a Antarctic expedition and numerous twists in the story line. Good "escape" reading, but hard to follow.

    Started off like it was building into a very good book, but it falls short along the way. Still worth a read if you have any conspiracy thoughts about the end of WWII

    This had promise, enjoyed the undercover part. Finding the box, and intrigue of what was written on it, better narration would add to the story. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

    Ice breaking thriller This is a three star for several reasons. It introduces a good hero in a grief obsessed investigative journalist who is drinking himself to death. Lady companion is a feisty academic. Great characters. Starts off in well described Edinburgh then moves to equally well described Antartica. We have global conspiracies, old Nazi secrets, chemical warfare, a hidden scientific base....all great stuff, but, but...we have deeply flawed thrills. I don't know if this was the writer's Ice breaking thriller This is a three star for several reasons. It introduces a good hero in a grief obsessed investigative journalist who is drinking himself to death. Lady companion is a feisty academic. Great characters. Starts off in well described Edinburgh then moves to equally well described Antartica. We have global conspiracies, old Nazi secrets, chemical warfare, a hidden scientific base....all great stuff, but, but...we have deeply flawed thrills. I don't know if this was the writer's first book which might explain the lapses. I nearly quit on the first chapter when a DCI all on his own is called to a care home at night to investigate a maybe break-in. I don't think so. No explanation is given for this high power attention and it would have been so easy to say, perhaps, said DCI was visiting elderly relative and got roped in. Reasonable. Similarly, later on several characters act contrary to what has been established. Our feisty hot tongued heroine meets the boss who turned down her wish to go on an expedition. She goes and who does she meet? Her boss. Does she have his guts for garters? No. Then a key character who is grieving the loss of a son meets our hero who was involved in the operation which destroyed said son. Does he say anything? No. Such suspicious restraint and at that point we are not supposed to be suspicious of this person. A mere short remark saying, I know who you are but I don't want to talk about it, would have been enough. Then there are gaps in the book when it suddenly lurches forward, usually after a life threatening crisis. No real details of the escape. No real acknowledgement of the severe sub zero conditions. There is too much of the 'with one leap Jack was free' device. It makes me wonder, as a fellow writer, if the author was under a total word count constraint by his initial publisher. Having said all that I enjoyed the book and have already bought another by the same author. Read this and make up your own mind. It I as a good read but could have been better.

    A SIMPLE MAN'S REVIEW: To be honest, I grabbed this book thinking it was one of Lincoln Child's older books (I guess I've seen Preston and Child's names together so often that this author seemed familiar). It is not. And I'm actually relieved because, while I love most of Lincoln Child's work, I did not love this. This was a very mediocre book. The story about a hidden Nazi base on Antartica isn't new and this book doesn't really take it in any remarkable directions.

It is not. And I'm actually relieved because, while I love most of Lincoln Child's work, I did not love this. This was a very mediocre book. The story about a hidden Nazi base on Antartica isn't new and this book doesn't really take it in any remarkable directions. The development of the characters is alright, but their behaviors seem out of line for how normal people would react to the various situations. The structure of the book could be better because it often jumped from person to person from one paragraph to the next, which can be a bit confusing (To be fair, the original might have had section space that got deleted as part of the process of turning it into an ebook). Overall just an average book. If you like the secret Nazi stuff, this might be worth a read because it is the first in a series that centers around this topic. Therefore if you like it, you'll have plenty more to read when you're done. Otherwise, I'd skip it.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Child hits high marks with me in this one. He takes all the Nazi conspiracy stuff about a secret antarctic base and runs with it. Our heroes come across the notes of a Nazi scientiest who worked at a secret base and figure out where it is before the notes are stolen. They end up on an expedition to find it. Ice Station Wolfenstein slowly gives up her secrets and they are more horrible than internet theorists could come up with. This was the first book in the series.

Of all of them it is probably my favorite. As the series progressed it began to devolve into the standards tropes. Even though all was not recovered from Wolfenstein, I have to admit that this book left me the most satisfied of all the books in the series.

    Interesting Mix of Forbidden History and Fiction Child has written a pretty good tale of lost fortresses, WWII submarines, biological warfare and government cover-up. The plot twists kept me guessing the outcome, and the tensions were nicely balanced between academics, adventurers and "merchants of death " . The forbidden history is that of "Operation Highjump", but the story doesn't really get into that. (Operation High Jump could be several books by itself).

    A twisted tale of Nazis, subterfuge and everyday heros. A twisted tale of Nazis, subterfuge and everyday heros. I have been a Preston Child fan for many years, and like most of the other titles penned them, this one does not disappoint. A lot of action, extreme conditions and not being able to tell whether the enemy is human, biological or historical all work together to make this a white knuckle, breath holding, edge of your seat thrill ride. I can't wait to read the next in the Black Sun series. A twisted tale of Nazis, subterfuge and everyday heros. A twisted tale of Nazis, subterfuge and everyday heros.

    I purchased this book at a very high price from India. It was an absolute waste of money.. This book is totally devoid of any logical or thrilling end.. The story begins like a great suspense.. drags along like someone is still trying to find the light switch in a dark room..(fumbling along trying to make sense..) and lo n behold.. the story ends.. Just like that.. I didn't even want to read it till the end. I will probably gift the book to anyone who irritates me and tell him/her its must read.
