Summary

For lovers of John Carpenter’s The Thing comes a tale of alien horror from international best-selling author Greig Beck.  

100,000 years ago the object hit the lake at the deepest point, quickly sinking into its mile-deep Stygian darkness. The sheets of ice closed, time moved on and the land forgot.  

But over the centuries, legends grew of people vanishing, of strange, deformed animals and of an unexplained luminescence down in the lake depths.  

When Marcus Stenson won the lucrative contract to create a sturgeon fish farm on the site of disused paper mill on the shore of Lake Baikal, he thought he had won the lottery and refused to listen to the chilling folktales, or even be concerned by the occasional harassment from the local mafia.   

But then animals were found mutilated in the frozen forest and people started to go missing. And worse, some came back, changed, horribly. 

In the depths of the lake, something that had been waiting 100,000 years was stirring. And it needed the warmth of mankind to survive.

Another Exceptional Tale

He did it again. This was another gripping tale that I found myself listening too far too much, more than I planned as I had great trouble putting it down.

The narrator mispronunciations are distracting

Narrator is fine but the direction is terrible mispronunciations abound , good story though and worth a credit.

Just so disappointed

This story is chocked full of disjointed connections. As if the author was grasping at anything that would fit and make some sense to move the story forward to the finish deadline. I kept catching incidences of this, paused, and wondered what was up with that?
I like Greig Beck as an Author, mostly. Sometime the pressure of producing something, anything, really shows! I am just so disappointed with this book.

Who goes there?

I've always had a soft spot for John Carpenter's "The Thing" and any similar books, movies etc. So when I saw this one on offer, decided to give it a try. This author could be someone to watch, but this book is just average. The buildup takes too long , and it all devolves into Navy Seals versus- I won't spoil that one, because this book WAS entertaining! If the narration seems a little slow, tale it up to 1.20x, and you should be good to go ! I would be willing to try another book from this author.
