Nascosta nelle profondità della calotta polare artica, si trova una base segreta dove alcuni tra i più brillanti scienziati dell'Unione Sovietica, poco prima della seconda guerra mondiale, avevano portato avanti un progetto rivoluzionario.

There are parts in there where it gets bogged down pointlessly with extra stuff, seemingly to pad the number of Leggi tutto
This book has sat inconspicuously next to my computer desk on it's shelf for two years and I don't know what exactly propelled me to pick it up but I'm glad I finally did! I tend to collect adventure stories that reach all corners of the Earth, even go between the layers and I especially love all th Leggi tutto
I really appreciate how much research Rollins does for his novels. Making certain that the science is plausible, that the schematics of places make sense, and that the cultures/ languages used are accurate all really suck me into his stories.
