Overview

THE WORLD RACES TO CLAIM A NEW CONTINENT...

A phenomenon known as crustal displacement shifts the Earth's crust, repositioning continents and causing countless deaths. In the wake of the global catastrophe, the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions. But Antarctica, freshly thawed and blooming, has emerged as a new hope. Rather than wage a world war no nation can endure, the leading nations devise a competition, a race to the center of Antarctica, with the three victors dividing the continent.

It is within this race that Mirabelle Whitney, one of the few surviving experts on the continent, grouped with an American special forces unit, finds herself. But the dangers awaiting the team are far worse than feared; beyond the sour history of a torn family, beyond the nefarious intentions of their human enemies, beyond the ancient creatures reborn through anhydrobiosis--there are the Nephilim.

...ONLY TO FIND IT ALREADY TAKEN.

    A thrill ride of adventure!

    Antarktos Rising is the story of an epic journey to a new world after a phenomenon, known as crustal displacement, shifts the earth's crust and repositions continents, leaving countless dead in its wake. As the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions, Antarctica emerges as a new hope. The leading nations devise a competition - a race to the center of Antarctica - with the three victors dividing the continent between them. Mirabelle Whitney, a survivor of the displacement and an expert on Antarctica, is recruited to guide an American Special Forces unit across the thawed-out continent. But they discover the continent has already been claimed by an ancient enemy of humanity and God¿the Nephilim. As survivors of the Genesis flood (Genesis 6:4) and frozen Antarctic, they have re-emerged to continue their dominance of mankind. As the offspring of human mothers and demon fathers they were feared due to their giant stature and evil nature. As Mirabelle and the world race to claim a new continent, they realize there is a danger far more frightening than the evil intentions of their fellow man. Antarktos Rising explores the science behind the Genesis flood, the reality of the Nephilim and the possibility of God using the flood to not just wipe out a corrupt population, but a human race that carried the Nephilim genetic code.

    Holy Crap! What a thrill ride!

    First, I must thank Stan of Variance Publishing for recommending this book to me. He wasn't joking when he said it would be the best $7.99 I would spend this year. Imagine "The Day After Tomorrow" + "Jurassic Park" x "Indiana Jones" + "Rambo" x the bible. That's this book. The Earth's crust has gone through a massive shift and Antarctica has thawed. I figured this would just be a novel of scientific discovery, you know, adventure with extinct creatures, but boy was I wrong. The population that survived the shift is now too large for the available habitable land. To prevent all out nuclear annihilation, the leaders of the new governments have agreed to a race. Whichever three countries make it to the center of the new Antarctica first will divide the continent for themselves. If you love adventure, military, scientific, or religious fiction, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

    Antarktos Rising, by Jeremy Robinson

    A global cataclysm strikes in the form of a polar shift changing the balance of power across the planet. The earths magnetic field shifts by several degrees throwing the planets climate into complete chaos. Most of North America is transformed instantly into an arctic wasteland while the middle east becomes a fertile wonderland. This is the premiss Antarktos Rising is based on.

    As North America literally freezes over, Antarctica thaws to becomes the most sought after continent on the planet. And since no nation had land rights to a contentment that had been locked in ice for millennia, suddenly every nation in the world is in competition to lay claim. Despite the apocalypse that is presented at the beginning of the book, competition for Antarctica is the main plot of the story.

    Not only has the continent thawed offering a potential refuge for millions of the displaced pollution, but it turns out that Antarctica has its own secrets that have laid hidden from the civilized world for thousands of years. And as countries compete to lay claim to the newly freed land, the teams in placed scouting the continent struggle to survive secrets long since forgotten.

    The first few chapters of the book are disheartening as the apocalypse costs millions of lives. But through this adversity, the main cast of characters emerge thought hardship and undertake an adventure that will change human history in ways that have nothing to do with the polar shift.

    As I have come to expect with Jeremy Robinson's work, the story is fast paced and exciting but the characters are what really pull the reader into the world he has created. Perhaps most disturbing off all is the factual evidence that such a global shift has happened before and one day is likely to happen again.

    This novel was an exciting and captivating read. It is a tale of tragedy and well as redemption. It explores both the best and worst that the human race has to offer. And it toys with the idea that man may not be the species at the top of the food chain after all.

    Quite the Imagination!

    It seems that most of the time, ¿global disaster,¿ books are about preventing the event and result of course in a last second catch to save the planet. In Antarktos Rising the author has skipped right past the chance to prevent disaster with how to deal with it. The disaster here, called crustal displacement kills billions of people and renders America pretty much a frozen wasteland as is much of the world that is now the most inhabitable and in this shift causes Antarctica to become the most desirable and inhabitable country. The race for Antartica between three teams is interesting in it¿s premise. Even now, with the entire earth to share we manage to fight over nearly every piece of land so it is an interesting premise to think that three countries could devise a race for the most desirable place and then will honor it. The characters involved in this are complex and interesting and add a great deal to this story which also manages to be very believable while it combines scientific theories with religious ones. Then thrown into the mix of man and religion comes the pre-historic upheaval involved. While this could sound convoluted it actually turns into a fascinating read that leaves one breathlessly turning each page while not wanting the book to end. This book has the ability to keep you awake at night, not only in figuring out how to help solve the problems but also because you just don¿t want to put it down.

    A Great Thriller

    It is hard to imagine a much more unlikely scenario than a global disaster called, ¿crustal displacement,¿ and then that the paradise or haven for earth will be Antarctica. When you get beyond that, what you will find is a fast-paced, highly entertaining book. There have been disaster books before dealing with the aftermath of an event but none combining science and religion and an array of compelling, believable, characters like Antarktos Rising does. This book is anything but predictable in the obstacles that must be overcome, not only with the characters, countries involved but also the brutal environment of the land and what is spawned from there. This book is very interesting and should appeal to a broad mass of readers. It combines enough truth with what most consider far-fetched events to keep a reader turning pages in a must know what will happen next.

    Thrilling adventure that will not let you down

    From the moment I picked up the book, I could not put it down. I read this within a weekend and Mr. Jeremy Robinson had a new devoted fan. This ultimate adventure novel is full of history, myths, and biblical legends. The world has sustained a shift in the magnetic poles. The impact is catastrophic to the human race. Billions are dead and the majority of the work is now plunged into a deep freeze. The only hope that human race has for survival is to head for uncharted lands. The last known frontier- Antarctica. The land that was once frozen tundra is now a lush tropical Eden. This is a place for the world to begin healing and rebuilding the future. Only one issue…… appearances can be deceiving. Beyond the warm climates, blossoming vegetation, and sparkling clean water is a lurking danger that began before written language was developed. Along with various other surviving countries, the US has sent its own team to secure their place in the new land. What the team discovers will have them fighting for their lives and their minds as they struggle to understand that some legends are so very true.

    The author makes no effort to hide his disdain for anything that doesn't fall in line with his extremely Christian-centric viewpoint. This is like his other work: thinly disguised Chrisitian propaganda.

    Too Much Christian Drivel

    While the premise if the story was very entertaining, readers should be aware that this is science fiction rather than science fact. Also, the extreme and often times gratuitous pandering to Christianiry is a bit hard to take, even for a Christian. This should be labeled as Christian Fiction as a warning. I normally really like Robinson's work but this is pushing it a bit too far. It is almost like a plea to get people to change religions. I hope the other Origins books are better about this.

    I loved this book! This was my introduction to the awesomeness that is the writings of Jeremy Robinson. This book sucked me in to the story, filled my head with the beauty of Antarktos and never let go. If you love Rollins, Reilly, Preston & Child you will love Robinson. A fast paced race to the center of Antarctica, who will win, who will die and who will be changed forever.

    Antarktos Rising sets the stage for an epic good time.  When the poles shift and Antarctica becomes a lush paradise, the world's remnants race to claim it as their own.  It is not vacant, however...
    I really like this book, but back when I first read it, not quite as much.  It felt unfinished in many ways.  It was a complete story ripe with action and mayhem and dinosaurs and gigantic foes- more than a match for humanity's dwindling attempt at staking a claim in the new Antarktos.
    But too vague, it just didn't seem like the whole story.
    Apparently, Jeremy Robinson thought so as well.  He expanded, and finished the story in Antarktos Rising, with the series/story, "The Last Hunter".  It comes in novellas and a very fancy Collected Edition, which has artwork and a short story and an interview. 
    The Last Hunter is the epitome of epic to me.  I recommend reading Antarktos Rising after book 2: Pursuit- it fits right in, but reading it before The Last Hunter works, too.  But Antarktos Rising is the core of it all and you won't go wrong with it by itself.  Even though I wasn't as happy with it then as I am since the Last Hunter came out, I still would have given it 4.5.  It's damn good on it's own.  Because of The Last Hunter, it gets a 5.  Check them out!

    Antarctica is thawed and the northern countries are frozen.
    Millions are dead, and millions more are displaced and have nowhere to go.
    The President of the United States (or what's left of them) sends whats left of the very best to Antarctica to claim the continent. Along with a few other teams, they embark on a no-holds-barred contest to claim the newly thawed land. An ancient, biblical evil awaits along with a few other nasty surprises.

    Antarktos Rising was my introduction into Jeremy Robinson's work.
    And it has now become one of my favorite novels ever!

    His brisk pace and character depth are unmatched. I find myself routing and pumping my fist every time something goes right for the main characters. You can also find a 5 part novel, The Antarktos Saga, that runs before-during-and after the events of Antarktos Rising! ALSO a must read.

    Awesome!

    Antarktos Rising will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. The author writes in an easy to read format and keeps the action going throughout. Only drawback to this book is that it is extremely difficult to put down. I read this book first and now plan to start book one of the Antarktos (Last Hunter) series.

    A review from the Casa de Pitsiladis blog:

    The continents of the world have drastically shifted, causing devastation and instantaneous loss of life all around the globe. Amidst the chaos the world has fallen into, the ice-covered continent of Antarctica experiences a thaw and becomes a lush, jungle filled land seemingly overnight. For those nations that suffered the worst of the disaster, both in loss of lives and resources, the new land offers salvation to whoever controls it. Rather than fighting a huge war and making things worse, the remaining governments of the world agree on a race with control of the new Antarctica going to the first three nations to make it to the center of the land. A scientist, who was researching relics left by Antarctica’s earlier residents before it froze, and his daughter go with the United States team on their trek to claim their place in the new land. It isn’t long before the teams realize the earlier inhabitants have returned and want what’s they feel is rightfully theirs, the planet itself. They are larger, almost impossible to kill, and are hungry to meet us.

    Jeremy Robinson is an author I am familiar with, having listened to the podcast versions of two previous books, “Beneath” and “Kronos“. Like with those books, I thoroughly enjoyed the read. It felt a bit fast paced at times, but the story itself I felt was a solid one and made for a good beginning to the book series. There is a logical jump between theology what is happening in the story and the creatures involved that spans across not just Biblical text, but also Egyptian, Norse, Sumerian, etc. It is a fun read I recommend to anyone who likes military style of books or tales that stem from real legends and religions. There is a Christian slant to the story, which as a Christian didn’t bother me, but might turn some readers off, as might some of the more violent scenes (dealing with giants and dinosaurs). My rating for this book is a 4 out of 5.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    This book blew me away. I couldn't put it down even if there was a huge tidal wave heading for my house. After the crustal displacement, the world is knocked off it's axis and Antarctica (Antarktos) is thawed, revealing a lush, tropical landscape that flourishes and blooms rapidly. Another perfect mixture of religion, action, science, and thrills! If you read this book, I seriously recommend The Last Hunter books also by Mr. Robinson. Their story lines run prior, during, and after this book.

    This Book Is Awesome!

    This book is an amazing thriller of epic proportions. Drawing elements from speculative science, ancient mysteries, mythology, and the author's deep imagination; Antarktos Rising has proven to be an intense and thought provoking adventure that cost me an awful lot of sleep. I seriously just couldn't put it down. Just kept on turning pages to see what would happen next. The plot line moves quickly from beginning to end with no lag time at all. Lots of action too. No dull moments! None!

    This book will apeal to anyone who enjoys action-packed thrillers, lesser known Biblical mysteries, ancient mythology, and good science fiction with a plot line that takes place in the here and now rather than on some spaceship in the distant future.

    Antarktos Rising has been my introduction to this author, Jeremy Robinson. I certainly plan to purchase the rest of his books in the not too distant future. I think I may have just found a new favorite author!
