    Captain Charlie Weller is part of an elite military unit is charge of watching a rift in the ice in Antarctica They are all that stand between the world and the monsters who want to invade it When a man crawls out of the rift, Charlie s team rescues him His tale is fantastic, and will change the fight forever.This story is a fast paced mix of action and romance It was perhaps a little too fast paced for me I found the romance to be almost insta love Within a day of meeting and rescuing Lys Captain Charlie Weller is part of an elite military unit is charge of watching a rift in the ice in Antarctica They are all that stand between the world and the monsters who want to invade it When a man crawls out of the rift, Charlie s team rescues him His tale is fantastic, and will change the fight forever.This story is a fast paced mix of action and romance It was perhaps a little too fast paced for me I found the romance to be almost insta love Within a day of meeting and rescuing Lysander from the rift, Charlie is sharing a sleeping bag with him Is this really the way someone would react to a man who crawls out of an Antarctic rift in the ice when the only other things crawling out are monsters I found the concept of WWI soldiers going to another parallel world to drive back monsters to be unique and intriguing I d love to hearof this back story I d also like to hearabout the citizens in Illyria, and their history.Overall, I found the book exciting and thrilling There is non stop action, both of the battle and sexual kind There are a few scenes with explicit erotica, which makes it different from most sci fi stories The WWI connection adds a unique historical basis to this genre bending story

small screen, but when I saw Jamie Craig s A Line in the Ice, I thought I d check it out I m so glad I did, because it was action packed and a sweet romance Jamie Craig is actually writing team Vivien Dean and Pepper Espinoza, and I always have the utmost respect for authors who can write together without killing each other, since I can t imagine that happening in my household without numerous calls to Emergency Services However, the two ladies who write as Jamie Craig do so seamlessly, and the end result is a pleasure to read If you look on their webpage www.jamie craig.com you ll see that they ve published a number of erotic romances of many types, but A Line in the Ice ismainstream You can find this novel for purchase atand at the Carina Press webpage The novel takes place roughly 100 years after the end of the First World War in Antarctica, with a small band of soldiers from around the world battling mysterious creatures emerging from the ice These strange animals first appeared during WWI around the world, killing soldiers and civilians and causing widespread panic A small band of soldiers fought off the creatures at the time, but then was never heard from again Captain Charlie Weller is part of the present day squad fighting the re appearance of the creatures in Antarctica, and as the novel begins, she and her partner are fighting off one of the animals, only to see a man emerge from the ice His name is Lysander Davies, and he tells Charlie and her companions that he s a descendent of a member of that original band of men from WWI He claims that the monsters they ve been fighting are actually gentle creatures from a place called Illyria, another world under attack by a vicious group called the Aquorians Lysander has made the dangerous journey through the rift between his world of Illyria and Charlie s Earth to warn the humans that the Aquorians are on their way But thetime he and Charlie spend together, the stronger their attraction, which makes the situation all thedifficult, since Lysander will have to return to Illyria in order to close the rift and save Earth.What first attracted me to this novel was the author s use of World War I as the time when the Leviathan the large animals began to come through the rift Since the US had less involvement in WWI than many of our allies, it often receives little attention in history courses and as a result many Americans know little or nothing about the war Choosing to have these creatures emerge at that time was intriguing to me, and the book didn t disappoint Lysander s Great Grandfather and the other men from WWI who drove off the Leviathan at the time became trapped in another world, Illyria Lysander has only heard stories of Earth, including parts of Shakespearean plays that his Great Grandfather had written down from memory Unfortunately, Lysander has returned to Earth at Antarctica, one of the starkest spots on Earth, and it s amusing to see his questions for Charlie about the other parts of the world, along with his introduction to technology his great grandfather could never have imagined possible.The setting of the book, Antarctica, was particularly effective, reminding me of sci fi movies such as Aliens, since the space in which the characters move and interact is so confined and the terrain so unforgiving The harsh cold and limited access to the outside world creates the feel of being cut off from everyone, which increases the tension between the soldiers and facilitates the growing romance between Charlie and Lysander At times you forget that they aren t alone, as they soon only have eyes for each other There are only six soldiers in this forgotten defense against a growing threat, and Lysander s frustration over Earth s growing complaisance concerning the rift and the Aquorian threat is palpable.My only complaint about the novel would be that we see very little of the Aquorians themselves, only learning of them through Lysander until the action packed end of the novel We learn about the threat that they present through his accounts of Illyria and what the other humans learned from their experience there, but I didn t fully understand their motives in attacking Earth This seems like a very minor complaint, however, since this was precisely the situation the soldiers in Antarctica faced I enjoyed the romance between Charlie and Lysander and thought this was an intriguing world I d love to seeabout Illyria in the future, especially since it was quite the contrast to the stark setting of the majority of the book When I asked the authors on Twitter if they had any plans for sequels, they replied that there isn t anything in the works but not to rule it out either, so for now, I ll have to settle for reading books from their backlist I definitely recommend this one if you re a Sci fi fan.I received this book for review from the publisher through NetGalley

    I m not usually a huge fan of romances in which the heroine is in the military or plays some other gun toting revenge seeking government operative It s not that I don t like the idea, since, actually, I think it s pretty great that women are now able to serve as men do, and demonstrate that they are just as capable as men to serve in a military capacity My problem isto do with how women in military enforcement roles in romances are written in I find too often they are either completely I m not usually a huge fan of romances in which the heroine is in the military or plays some other gun toting revenge seeking government operative It s not that I don t like the idea, since, actually, I think it s pretty great that women are now able to serve as men do, and demonstrate that they are just as capable as men to serve in a military capacity My problem isto do with how women in military enforcement roles in romances are written in I find too often they are either completely unbelievable, being way too fragile to really be whom they are supposed to be, or the author hits the right note up front competent technically and demonstrating admirable intelligence and capabilities but then everything goes south when the hero appears, with the heroine either completely incongruous as some kind of sex kitten, oroutrageously masculine than the hero, but with bigger boobs Either way, I find it a turn off, so I generally steer clear of them.Well, this one, provided to me by netgalley, wasn t like that The heroine is credible She is a highly competent individual, who doesn t loose her marbles either when the hero appears, or when she realizes how deep her feelings for the hero actually are, and her competence at her job, violent as it is, does not desert her when she has to fight standing next to the hero I also liked her She seemed a real person, not some superhero, and didn t have a whole bunch of hangups either, but kept a nice balance between emotional and rational internal dialogue.I have to admit I had my eyes on this book for a while, ever since I read the plot summary in some interview or other It just intrigued me Part romance, part sci fi, part thriller, part Ice Station Zebra A bit like an urban fantasy, but set on ice, and set in the present day, but with a rather clever historical twist to it through the hero, and something almost like a time travel theme, but not really It s one of those books that s hard to define, and maybe that s why I enjoyed it so much.There is a good cast of characters, and the secondary players are introduced in such a way that you are not confused by them or their personalities i.e they don t all appear all at once , and they actually have important parts to play in the story The plot is good, but it s how the plot is introduced to the reader that I liked, how it develops with the characters, and the choices they have to make, that just make this such a great read You are essentially thrown into the thick of it from the first page, and although you can guess most of the background, the details are revealed at a reasonable pace through the conversations of the characters It really is very well planned and written.I guess without such a solid pace or great characters the plot would seem silly, but it really worked for me.I really liked it 4 stars Will definitely keep my eyes open for other books by this team

    This book definitely gave me the feel of a mid grade science fiction movie, a la Ghosts of Mars or something in the same vein We ve got a group of soldiers stationed together in Antarctica There are six of them, each representing a different country The conditions are horrible their accommodations and supplies, meager But their mission is critical They re fighting the inhuman beasts appearing in the frigid landscape.As the book begins, the soldiers discover a man climbing from the rift whe This book definitely gave me the feel of a mid grade science fiction movie, a la Ghosts of Mars or something in the same vein We ve got a group of soldiers stationed together in Antarctica There are six of them, each representing a different country The conditions are horrible their accommodations and supplies, meager But their mission is critical They re fighting the inhuman beasts appearing in the frigid landscape.As the book begins, the soldiers discover a man climbing from the rift where the beasts have appeared He doesn t have gear for the cold and he collapses immediately The group takes him back to their base to try to figure out who he is and where he came from Charlie takes a particular interest in him And as he wakes up, he begins to tell her a fantastic tale about where he came from and why he sought them out.Lysander claims he is from another world, called Illyria His people are descended from a group of World War I soldiers lost in a similar rift, decades ago But his people have been nearly wiped out by an alien race and he s made it his mission to protect Earth from a similar fate Of course, a romance brews between Lysander and Charlie But she is cautious, especially once she finds out his plan to return to his home world.The romance is good, though it progresses at lightning speed Lysander is a stalwart hero, with a big heart Frankly, he s almost too good The story features plenty of action But I think I felt a bit removed from the danger, because we didn t have a face for the enemy It was an entire race of bad guys who are a threat to the entire race of humanity It wasn t a personalized danger, if that makes any sense The tension was moderate, in both the romance and overall story arc I was interested in how it all would play out, but not necessarily emotionally invested It was ok 3 1 2 starsARC Provided by NetGalley

    This book is unique in that the author spins off on the good versus evil plot A group of soldiers find a freezing and wounded man with a fantastic story to tell They are forced to believe him after they encounter the beasts that the man speaks of the soldiers also witnessed the beasts before too The reader will enjoy getting to know each character quite well The secondary characters are interesting and have quirks that the reader will come to enjoy The plot itself is intriguing, not exactly This book is unique in that the author spins off on the good versus evil plot A group of soldiers find a freezing and wounded man with a fantastic story to tell They are forced to believe him after they encounter the beasts that the man speaks of the soldiers also witnessed the beasts before too The reader will enjoy getting to know each character quite well The secondary characters are interesting and have quirks that the reader will come to enjoy The plot itself is intriguing, not exactly unique However, the author incorporates World War I so cohesively into the story that many readers will find the novel enjoyable due to the loose basis on history The antagonist s in the novel would have beeneffective had the author touched on themthe reader heard of them and saw them from a distance, but there was not a lot of dialogue or contact The events are fairly quick, the reader won t be bored The characters hold the readers attention and act to draw the reader into the novel This novel is recommended for science fiction mystery fans
