Lincoln Child, half of the famous writing pair of Preston & Child fame, crafts a great pseudo-science monster story here. His books are very interesting, and so creative. I am now reading the Third Gate. Terminal Freeze was very enjoyable.

Lincoln Child, half of the famous writing pair of Preston & Child fame, crafts a great pseudo-science monster story here. Interesting characters (though perhaps not terribly deep) matched with a historical X-Files style mystery lead to a great page-turning read. I love these two writers and I think Child handles monster stuff more adroitly than Preston but both of them have their strengths.

This novel is in the best tradition of the Mystery Horror Genre. If my review seems a bit vague, it is only because I don't want to be a spoiler regarding any aspects of the book that would lessen the reader's enjoyment.
The author's prose creates an air of mystery, coupled with an almost palpable sense of psychological dread, primal fear, and abject repulsion that typify the best examples of such narratives. While it describes in no uncertain terms details of the murder, mayhem, and terror being inflicted on the novel's characters, it mercifully refrains from the excesses of style that result in shockingly graphic and disgusting imagery. And although the character of Jeremy Logan remains largely secondary in the plot, except for a chapter near the beginning and the finale where he reveals his interpretation of events, it is a worthy addition to the series. Not since the novel "Relic" by Child and Preston have I read such a powerful horror narrative of this kind, set in relatively contemporary times. Although its plot appears to be somewhat inspired by the 1951 film version of "The Thing from Another World", and to a lesser degree by H. P. Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" and the still earlier Edgar Allan Poe novel "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket", which started the genre of mystery-horror stories set in the antarctic or arctic ice fields, "Terminal Freeze" is nevertheless a compelling and original tale that I could not stop listening to!
BTW: Scott Brick's masterful performance of the audio version lends a sense of reality to the narrative while riveting the listener's attention throughout.

I bought the Kindle version with audible narration on July 20, 2017. It was very well put together and the audible narration was perfectly in sync. A previous reviewer said the Kindle version was atrociously edited, random words, misspelling, random hyphens, erratic breaks, and all kinds of other things. My Android version of Kindle, that I installed from the Android Play Store, worked perfect and had had none of the stuff the other reviewer encountered. This is true of my Galaxy Tab S2, Tab S3, and Axon 7 cell phone.

The book is good, an enjoyable read and I'm powering through it fast. Racks up the tension and then doesn't let go, but has that wonderful slow start that establishes everything that this guy is known for.

Only problem I have so far is the Kindle version is atrociously edited. Names, and even random words, change spelling, are randomly hyphenated at one point and then spelled normally the next, dialogue gets bunched together awkwardly when it's clear there should be breaks or indentations, random spacing occurs between words where it has no place, and entire sentences get seperated mid sentence into 2 seperate paragraphs.

The book is a great read, but get a paperback if you can. Don't download the Kindle variant unless you can't find a physical copy, like I had to.

I'll rate the book 4 stars because it deserves it, but don't buy the kindle variant. I almost feel like it detracted a little bit from my overall enjoyment.

I just recently discovered Lincoln Child and am so glad I did. His books are very interesting, and so creative. I am now reading the Third Gate. Terminal Freeze was very enjoyable. Editing was a little rough - though I alway attribute that to the transition from the written page to digital. At one point a character is in a very suspenseful situation and we are told that he put his ears over his hands - sorta broke the mood for a moment while I laughed out loud. He is a wonderful author, totally enjoy his work and look forward to reading more.

And i liked that it took over half the book before the reader got a glimpse of the.monstrous creature. The slower place was a relief after all those books in which activity happens every few seconds.

It gave me time to get to know characters and the landscape.

I will read more by this author.

Lincoln Child, half of the famous writing pair of Preston & Child fame, crafts a great pseudo-science monster story here. Interesting characters (though perhaps not terribly deep) matched with a historical X-Files style mystery lead to a great page-turning read. I love these two writers and I think Child handles monster stuff more adroitly than Preston but both of them have their strengths. Child's ability to vividly describe the Arctic setting really brings the reader into the story. If you're looking for a fun one-off book to read and love horror or science fiction/horror, you'll enjoy this book.

I love this author and this is another great story. It keeps moving and keeps you wondering. I really like that he references characters from his other novels as well as from the Pendergast series. In this case, he references Frock from the Relic and his Calisto effect theory to explain what is happening at Fear Base. The character of Logan in this novel also goes on to two other novels. Using characters across stories gives the reader some continuity and makes it seems like they are one story, but just different scenes in the character's life. The ending was left kind of open for interpretation by the reader about what happened to the monster and how it came to be.
Like Jurassic Park this story is based upon the idea of prehistoric creatures coming back to life and promises to be a page-turning thriller, but after a very good start it somehow it turns out to be a slow read. If the author had written a purely science fiction thriller it would have been a better book, but, as in some of his other books, like Third Gate, Deep Storm, and Death Match he throws in some kind of poorly defined mystical/spiritual element that waters down the plot and leaves the ending unresolved.
