Overview

I've been told that the entire continent of Antarctica groaned at the moment of my birth. The howl tore across glaciers, over mountains and deep into the ice. Everyone says so. Except for my father; all he heard was Mother's sobs. Not of pain, but of joy, so he says. Other than that, the only verifiable fact about the day I was born is that an iceberg the size of Los Angeles broke free from the ice shelf a few miles off the coast. Again, some would have me believe the fracture took place as I entered the world. But all that really matters, according to my parents, is that I, Solomon Ull Vincent, the first child born on Antarctica-the first and only Antarctican-was born on September 2nd, 1974.

If only someone could have warned me that, upon my return to the continent of my birth thirteen years later, I would be kidnapped, subjected to tortures beyond comprehension and forced to fight...and kill. If only someone had hinted that I'd wind up struggling to survive in a subterranean world full of ancient warriors, strange creatures and supernatural powers.

Had I been warned I might have lived a normal life. The human race might have remained safe. And the fate of the world might not rest on my shoulders. Had I been warned....

This is my story-the tale of Solomon Ull Vincent-The Last Hunter.

WOW!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this entire series. Jeremy Robinson is one of my favorite authors, I own everyone of his books and once again he didnot disappoint! Very well developed characters and (surprise surprise) very few if any misspelled words or grammatical errors (very rare in an e book). Edge of your seat plot I highly recommend this book to everyone! You will regret not buying this one guaranteed.

This series and author just keep on getting better. I can't wait for his next book. His Chess Team series is just as good as the Antarktos series. I recommend all of his books.

This is the prequel to "Antarktos Rising." It gives insight to the other book's characters as they embark on their mission to Antarctica. This is a fantastic read and an easy page turner. I greatly recommend this book, and the following two books available (so far) in this series.

This book was an intense, action filled, dramatic, race car ride I simply didn't want put down. What a ride it was!  Magic, myth, science, religion, the believable & unbelievable unfurled itself from my iPhone, piercing the blackness of our room & whipped me away on a snowflake wind into a world I never would have imagined. Until now. I warn you: grab a cup of tea & snuggle into a thick quilt - it's about to get cold. Really cold... The pacing is fantastic - not a boring part to this tale. The descriptions fascinating - I felt as if I were accompanying the main character on his painful journey. The language - easy to follow & fun to read. No, I'm not going to give you a breakdown of what this book's about: that's what the preview is for but I will tell you this: From start to finish, I was completely engaged. No, it is not JUST a children's book - sheer nonsense - it will delight both young & young at heart alike. In fact, I'd peg it as more of a young adult book than children. I'm anxious to begin reading the sequel. I've read one other book by this author. Robinson's fluid writing style is quickly making him one of my favorite modern day authors. Excellent work & thank you for a wonderful read! - Ashley Knight, author of the FINS Trilogy

The Last Hunter Saga is the story of a boy who becomes a man under harsh treatment from beings living in the unknown depths of Antarctica who make him their personal hunter- the last one.  And they have grand plans for him... This series is awesome.  Jeremy Robinson wrote another book, Antarktos Rising, before this one, but  it is its own story.  But not the whole story.  This is the rest, and it is epic.      The best part, in my opinion, is that you can read Antarktos Rising after the 2nd book, Pursuit, and then back to books 3, 4, & 5 to finish it up with an awesome side story interlude that meshes very well and enhances The Last Hunter very nicely and vice versa.  Or else read it before, that works, too. Now, the beginning of this particular book is a little hard for people at first, myself somewhat included, but it's worth it, trust me.  Nothing depraved or perverted I promise.  You'll see what I mean.  But stick with it!!!!  It's like that for a reason.  This is a ridiculously awesome action/sci-fi/dinosaurs/other assorted beasts kind of tale and I would recommend it to anyone who loves this kind of book or movie.

All your imaginings of this place would have never led you here.  This is the story of a young boy, Solomon, the only human ever born on the continent of Antarctica. He’s living a normal geeky life in the United States where his parents fled after a freak snowstorm on the day of his birth buries the station they were living in.  He turns 13 and his parents surprise him with a trip to Antarctica with their good friends, the Clarks. Solomon feels an instant affinity for the land when he steps off the plane. The very first night, a blizzard comes out of nowhere and hits their new camp. In the middle of the night he hears a noise and goes outside to investigate. He disappears into the storm. What happens next is a horror story that pulls you in.  Through his trials, he shows great character. He loses himself and then finds himself again. Jeremy’s evil characters are very evil. However, his good characters are people we like, people we can identify with, cry with, and cheer for.  If you like SciFi stories with strange creatures, giants, and lots of adventure, this is a great choice.

When I found out about this book, it didn't interest me as much as previous books of Robinson's had, I held off on getting it till I was finished with the others. Got the first one and immediately got the rest. This series blew me away, I loved it. What I thought was going to be more of a young adult series was one of the best I have ever read. It sucked me in, I loved each character and couldn't wait for more. Antarktos Rising was the first book of Robinson's I read and what got me hooked, this series sealed the deal. It's beautiful in its detail, funny, full of adventure and a great story. I encourage you to check these out.

I enjoyed the story line and was not disappointed by the adventure. Young teens would be able to read this and enjoy it. You cannot read only the first book so you might as well get the whole series. The adventure continues in the other books.

This is a fast-paced book that is full of twists and turns. There is no figuring this one out early. Can't wait to read the next one.
