Overview

"Another crisply plotted tale from the fertile imagination of Jeremy Robinson.  This one has it all, frozen Nazis, UFO crashes, Antarctica, and some really cool science.  Plan to hunker down for all-nighter with this one.  I did." –Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

"Robinson blends myth, science and terminal velocity action like no one else." –Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal

 

The high adventure of James Rollins meets the gripping suspense of Matthew Reilly in Jeremy Robinson's explosive new thriller, SecondWorld.

 

Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy SEAL turned NCIS Special Agent is sent to Aquarius, the world’s only sub-oceanic research facility located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller’s fingers and tastes like blood.

Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing. No ships. No polluters.

No oxygen.

Instead, he finds a cloudless sky full of red particles dropping like snow and coating the ocean with a thick film that stretches to the horizon. When a dead blue whale collides with Aquarius, Miller begins a harrowing race to escape the affected area.  Cut off from the rest of the world and surrounded by death, Miller makes his way to Miami where he discovers just one survivor, and the awful truth: the strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life giving oxygen was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they’re just getting started. Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. Millions are dead.

And if Miller can’t track down and stop those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world is next.

"With THRESHOLD Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory. Fast-paced, action-packed and wonderfully creepy! Highly recommended!" —Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of ROT & RUIN and PATIENT ZERO

"Jeremy Robinson is the next James Rollins" — Chris Kuzneski, NY Times bestselling author of THE SECRET CROWN

"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson..."— Stephen Coonts, NY Times bestselling author of DEEP BLACK: ARCTIC GOLD

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Relentless pacing and numerous plot twists drive this compelling stand-alone from Robinson (Threshold), though readers should be prepared for a far-fetched premise involving Nazis, a grand-scale conspiracy, and massive iron clouds in the atmosphere. When NCIS agent Lincoln Miller, who’s temporarily stationed at an underwater research station off the coast of Key Largo, Fla., notices an abundance of reddish flakes in the water, he initially believes that it’s illegally dumped waste. But he quickly realizes that it’s much worse—the ocean is littered with dead fish. Once on land, Miller finds a world without oxygen covered in red ash and fresh corpses. Using an oxygen tank to stay alive, he discovers that while the disaster wasn’t global, it may just be the beginning of the end. Thriller fans and apocalyptic fiction aficionados alike will find this audaciously plotted novel enormously satisfying. Author tour. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media. (May)
From the Publisher
Praise for SecondWorld:

“The popcorn novel of the summer has arrived, and Jeremy Robinson delivers an action fest that rivals the best of James Rollins, Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly… The combination of Mad Max, I Am Legend and Where Eagles Dare provides a fresh take on the end of the world that is riveting from the first page. SecondWorld is a guaranteed one-sitting read that would make a terrific summer movie.” –Associated Press

"Another crisply plotted tale from the fertile imagination of Jeremy Robinson.  This one has it all, frozen Nazis, UFO crashes, Antarctica, and some really cool science.  Plan to hunker down for all-nighter with this one.  I did." –Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

"Robinson blends myth, science and terminal velocity action like no one else." –Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal

"The year 2012 is synonymous with Doomsday, but what if the cause of the chaos to come was. . .Adolf Hitler?  Read SecondWorld, a new treat from Jeremy Robinson."

—Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of Meg & Grim Reaper: End of Days

"A harrowing, edge of your seat thriller told by a master storyteller, Jeremy Robinson’s SecondWorld is an amazing, globetrotting tale that will truly leave breathless." —Richard Doetsch, international bestselling author of Half-Past Dawn

“Relentless pacing and numerous plot twists drive this compelling stand-alone from Robinson (Threshold)… Thriller fans and apocalyptic fiction aficionados alike will find this audaciously plotted novel enormously satisfying.” –Publishers Weekly

 

"A brisk thriller with neatly timed action sequences, snappy dialogue and the ultimate sympathetic figure in a badly burned little girl with a fighting spirit... The Nazis are determined to have the last gruesome laugh in this efficient doomsday thriller." — Kirkus Reviews

“Compellingly written… But, instead, it’s gripping, propelled by expertly controlled pacing and lively characters…. Robinson’s punchy prose style will appeal to fans of Matthew Reilly’s fast-paced, bigger-than-life thrillers, but this is in no way a knockoff. It’s a fresh and satisfying thriller that should bring its author plenty of new fans.” —Booklist

Praise for Threshold:

“Jeremy Robinson’s Threshold is one hell of a thriller, wildly imaginative and diabolical, which combines ancient legends and modern science into a non-stop action ride that will keep you turning the pages until the wee hours. Relentlessly gripping from start to finish, don’t turn your back on this book!” —Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Impact and Blasphemy

"With Threshold Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory.  Fast-paced, action-packed and wonderfully creepy!  Highly recommended!" —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The King of Plagues  and Rot & Ruin

Threshold is a blisteringly original tale that blends the thriller and horror genres in a smooth and satisfying hybrid mix.  With his new entry in the Jack Sigler series, Jeremy Robinson plants his feet firmly on territory blazed by David Morrell and James Rollins.  The perfect blend of mysticism and monsters, both human and otherwise, make Threshold as groundbreaking as it is riveting.” – Jon Land, New York Times bestselling author of Strong Enough to Die

“Jeremy Robinson is the next James Rollins.” – Chris Kuzneski, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Throne and The Prophecy

"Jeremy Robinson's Threshold sets a blistering pace from the very first page and never lets up. This globe-trotting thrill ride challenges its well-crafted heroes with ancient mysteries, fantastic creatures, and epic action sequences. For readers seeking a fun rip-roaring adventure, look no further." —Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of The Ark

"In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." ...Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet." —Publishers Weekly

"Robinson's books have the necessary action and engaging characters to make the reader frantically turn the pages, but Threshold elevates Robinson to the highest tier of over-the-top action authors, like Matthew Reilly and James Rollins. Intense and personal, this book is a great launching point for new readers, and it delivers beyond the expectations even of his fans. The next Chess Team adventure cannot come fast enough." —Booklist, starred review

"Threshold is my favorite Jack Sigler Thriller so far... I hope one day to see the Chess Team materialize on the big screen. Robinson artfully weaves the modern day military with ancient history like no one else has and I would love to see the adventures of the Chess team come alive in a movie." —deadrobotssociety.com

“If you thought Pulse and Instinct were fun, just hold on tight my fellow thriller lovers. Jeremy Robinson pulls out all the stops in Threshold making this the most electrifying installment in the series so far. Robinson somehow takes the Tower of Babel, killer statues, giant lizards and insects, Stonehenge, and medieval lore and mixes it all together in this crazy, relentless story that is simply impossible to put down…. I have a blast every time I pick up a Jeremy Robinson novel and Threshold is no exception. I love authors who are dedicated to continually bringing fresh and original content to their fans, and Robinson continues to find ways to do this. If you are longing for a great thriller writer to follow and are tired of waiting a year or more between novels, then give Jeremy Robinson a chance. He’s the perfect combination of quality and frequency in a market that is often lacking both.” –FictionAddict.com

"Jeremy Robinson pulls out all stops in this never-a-dull-moment [novel]... you'll be turning pages faster than you can blink." —Bookloons.com

Praise for Instinct:

Pulse was a video game in print form, and [Instinct] is a tribute to James Cameron’s film Aliens. Intense and full of riveting plot twists, it is Robinson’s best book yet, and it should secure a place for the Chess Team on the A-list of thriller fans who like the over-the-top style of James Rollins and Matthew Reilly.” –Booklist

"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team. Instinct riveted me to my chair." —Stephen Coonts

"Jeremy Robinson is a fresh new face in adventure writing and will make a mark in suspense for years to come." –David L. Golemon, New York Times bestselling author of Ancients and Leviathan

"Instinct is a jungle fever of raw adrenaline that goes straight for the jugular." —Thomas Greanias, New York Times bestselling author of The Atlantis Revelation and The Promised War

Praise for Pulse:

"Jeremy Robinson's latest novel, Pulse, ratchets his writing to the next level. Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure."

—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle

"Raiders of the Lost Arc meets Tom Clancy meets Saturday matinee monster flick with myths, monsters, special ops supermen and more high tech weapons than a Bond flick. Pulse is an over-the-top, bullet-ridden good time."

—Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Contagious and Infected

"Pulse contains all of the danger, treachery, and action a reader could wish for. Its band of heros are gutsy and gritty. Robinson's impressive talent is on full display in this one."

—Steve Berry

"Here’s a neat twist: a young adventure thriller writer—whose heroes save the world—saves the world of adventure thrillers. In a genre glutted with popcorn gimmicks and tired rip-offs, Jeremy Robinson dares to craft old-fashioned guilty pleasures—far horizons, ancient maps, and classic monsters—hardwired for the 21st century. There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom."

— Jeff Long, New York Times bestselling author of The Descent and Year Zero

"Pulse is Jeremy Robinson's best yet. A really intriguing premise, frightening consequences, wrapped up in roaring adventure."

—Stel Pavlou, International Bestselling author of Decipher

"Greek myth and biotechnology collide in Robinson's first in a new thriller series to feature the Chess Team... Robinson will have readers turning the pages..."

Publishers Weekly

"Robinson’s latest reads like a video game with tons of action and lots of carnage....The combination of mythology, technology, and high-octane action proves irresistible."

Booklist

Kirkus Reviews
One of the only survivors of a bizarre holocaust in Miami caused by lethal red flakes falling from the sky, NCIS agent Lincoln Miller must defuse a late-developing plot hatched by the Nazis to reboot the planet with Aryans by killing everyone else. In the initial attacks, Tokyo and Tel Aviv also lose millions of people to the ghastly storms, which deplete the target areas of oxygen and poison anyone who comes into contact with the deposits. Miller, a former SEAL who was underwater when Miami receives its lethal rainfall, becomes the president's go-to guy to save the world. Before he can take on the bad guys, he has to figure out how to keep breathing (he collects abandoned SCUBA tanks). Then he has to evade grim-faced snipers and assassins and survive an assortment of gunshots, car crashes and blows to the head. With sidekicks including a German female Interpol agent whose grandparents were among the scientists participating in hideous Nazi experiments, Miller discovers that thousands of stealth antigravity satellites are hovering up above to capture refined iron and shoot it downward as toxic ammo. His desperate efforts take him from New Hampshire to Europe to Antarctica, and from abject fear to wisecracks. Has he really turned his cell phone into a targeting device for a nuclear missile, he's asked. "That a problem?" he replies. A brisk thriller with neatly timed action sequences, snappy dialogue and the ultimate sympathetic figure in a badly burned little girl with a fighting spirit, this novel doesn't waste time addressing such matters as why the fate of the world rests in the hands of one man. The Nazis are determined to have the last gruesome laugh in this efficient doomsday thriller.

MIAMI, FLORIDA

WEDNESDAY—AUGUST 8, 2012

 

 

“Shit!”

The microwave door flew open and Rachel Carter reached her hand in.

The spoon, left in the bowl of oatmeal and heated along with the cardboard-flavored breakfast, had been shooting off blue sparks when she noticed it. Without thinking, she grabbed the spoon. A millisecond later, her mind registered the stupidity of her action, along with the searing heat. Her arm reacted quicker than her fingers, flailing backward. The spoon soared across the kitchen, weighted with expensive organic oats, and smacked against the stainless steel fridge, where both breakfast and spoon clung like Silly Putty.

Rachel turned on the tap and ran cold water over her pulsing index finger and thumb, her glare fixed on the spoon. It slid slowly toward the floor.

“You okay, Mom?” asked her ten-year-old daughter, Samantha.

“Fine.”

Samantha walked past the fridge, paused, stepped back and looked at the spoon. She turned to her mother with an eyebrow raised. “Fine?”

Rachel forced a smile that communicated a single message: don’t ask.

Samantha shrugged and pulled a chair up to the counter. She climbed onto the chair, then onto the counter.

“Get down from there!”

“I’m hungry.”

“I made you oatmeal.”

“You’re gonna make me puke, too, if I have to eat that sludge.”

With two granola bars in hand, she jumped down from the counter, swung the chair back to the table, and began unwrapping the first bar. Jake, the younger of the two siblings, strode into the kitchen, still in his footie pajamas, which he wore most days. “One of the advantages of being homeschooled,” he was fond of saying. Samantha tossed him the second granola bar and they sat at the table, eating in silence.

Rachel sighed. She couldn’t complain. At least they were eating granola bars and not fast-food egg and sausage sandwiches—which she suspected her husband, Walter, had been sneaking on his way to work. Again. She looked at the microwave clock.

8:30 A.M.

“Walter, you’re going to be late!” she shouted after noticing the time. He worked for a big downtown marketing firm and had a major pitch to make that afternoon.

Walter slid into the kitchen, moving fast. He opened the cabinet, reached up, and took down the granola bar box. Empty. “Ouch. Epic fail.” He looked at Rachel, who nodded toward the kids. Her grin said it all.

He took in their barely contained smiles. “Traitors!” He sighed. “I guess I’ll just get something on the way.”

“I’m sure you will,” Rachel replied, drying off her still-stinging finger.

“What?”

Rachel stared intently at him, trying to convey her annoyance over his bad eating habits, without actually having to spell it out for him in front of the children.

Seeing her expression, Walter laughed. “I have no idea what you’re talking about! Now get out of my head, woman!” He grabbed his bag and headed down the hallway for the front door.

“Love you!” Rachel shouted as the door creaked open.

There was no reply.

No customary “Love you, too.”

No closing door.

No starting car.

She was about to go check on him when Walter slowly backed into the kitchen. He had his iPhone out and was tapping the screen madly. This wasn’t an uncommon activity, but the dire look on his face was far from normal. Rachel held her breath. The kids stopped giggling and watched their father.

“What is it?” she asked. “Did the job fall through already?”

Walter shook his head and kept on tapping. Then he stopped. “This is wrong.”

“What?” she demanded, growing worried. “Is the phone broken?”

He stared blankly down at the screen. “It’s happening everywhere—all over the world. Wait— Crap, I lost our Wi-Fi connection.”

“Walter…”

“The 3G network is down, too.” He met his wife’s eyes. “It must be disrupting cell service.”

She took his face in her hands, willing his stunned eyes to meet hers. “Walter! What are you talking about? What is happening?”

He glanced toward the still-open front door. She followed his gaze and gasped.

The kids hopped out of their chairs to look.

“It’s snowing!” Jake shouted, running for the door.

“No!” Walter jumped forward and snagged his son by the sleeve. He looked at Rachel, his expression alarmed. “Close any open windows. Tape the seams. Use the duct tape.”

She nodded, feeling sick, and they both set off around the house, closing doors and windows. Samantha and Jake went into the living room, climbed onto the couch, and peered curiously out the bay window.

“Why can’t we go out?” Jake asked. “It never snows here. I want to play in the snow!”

“Dad says it’s not snow.”

Jake looked grumpy. “Well, how does he know?”

“Because, silly, snow isn’t red.”

    Can't Put Down!!!!

    Another real "page turner" from Jeremy Robinson, if you want characters you want for friends, plots that race at a breathless pace you should read this book. The concepts of Jeremy Robinson's books always teeter on the edge of reality and this is no exception, every time he introduces a new lead character in his books I love them. I think anyone who would write a bad review of one of his books is reading the wrong genre because he is the master of his. Read SecondWorld and it will open a whole new world of great books by a great writer for you, I know it did for me!

    LOVE ROBINSON - BOOK JUST OKAY

    In contrast to Jeremy Robinson's other novels (and I've read almost every single one), SECONDWORLD didn't stand up to his self-published books - like PULSE, THRESHHOLD, BENEATH, etc. I like the main character but he pulled off some inhuman feats throughout the story line which made him unbelievable. SECONDWORLD is about 350 pages compared to his usual 800-900 page novels. I'm very happy Mr. Robinson got picked up by a publishing company. He's one of my top favorite authors. I just hope it doesn't cause him to change his style or rush to meet a deadline. Some good twists along the way.

    If there is one thing I have come to expect from Jeremy Robinson

    If there is one thing I have come to expect from Jeremy Robinson, its a freakishly good time while reading his books. The phrases, 'Pedal to the Metal', 'Nonstop Action' and 'Wicked Good' all come to mind when I remember my thoughts as I finished this tremendously F-A-S-T paced juggernaut of a novel. Outside of Matthew Reilly, I can't recall a novel with nearly as much written kinetic energy as I found with 'Secondworld'. I've been a fan of Jeremy since discovering his first self-published book, 'The Didymus Contingency' many years back. He has consistently impressed me more and more with each successive release--and 'Secondworld' is no exception.

    What do Nazi's have to do with modern-day possibility of Armageddon? Well, I'm not about to ruin one of the best parts of 'Secondworld' by revealing way too much, but suffice it to say that finding out their connection is truly an experience in and of itself...one absolutely LOADED with equal parts entertainment, action, science and enough creativity for a dozen NY Times best-selling authors. Everytime I worry that originality seems to be passing quickly into memory, I end up getting a new Jeremy Robinson book and my faith is restored yet again. This man is NOTHING if not utterly original in a field which is over-flowing with 'been there, read that' recycled plots or blatant attempts to copy the DaVici Code. Jeremy takes what the *norm* is and I imagine works overtime carefully plotting a story which takes creativity to a whole new level.

    So...does it all work...? The answer is, YES--VERY well, too. The long answer is a bit more complicated. Are there portions of the book that stretch believability? Well, that all depends on what it is YOU require of a book. I'm totally willing to shelve my hold on reality in order to fully immerse myself into a story which keeps me wanting more. More to the point, Jeremy Robinson has EARNED my respect by making everything I've read by him genuinely WORTH it. I can ask nothing more of a novel than to provide me with an escape from the world of pressures for a few hours, and leave me ultimately feeling like I REALLY got my moneys worth. My ONLY gripe of 'Secondworld'? I got into the story SO deeply that I finished it MUCH sooner than usual. I have some books I intentionally take my time reading if for no other reason than to extend the enjoyment of being immersed into the story a bit longer...however, in this case, I simply couldn't finish it fast enough. Kudos yet AGAIN, to Jeremy. An author who really does get better with each new release. Do yourself a favor, if you haven't read Robinson yet, go out and get one today. It'll only be a matter of time before you will have finished up his entire collection. Yes, he's THAT good.

    I really enjoyed reading SecondWorld. It was well-researched, and believable. The suspense built steadily, and the ending was suitably climactic, without leaving you hanging.

    Not recommended

    Fast pace action, but story too unbelievable. Characters are developed ok, but again their roles and actions just a bit too unrealistic.

    I don't read for reality. I read to get away the madness of everyday life. This book did a great job of taking me away. It was pretty far-fetched, but so much FUN and very exciting!! Jeremy Robinson is one of my favorites because he never fails to entertain. I really liked it.

    Catastrophically bad. Please avoid this, for your own sake.

    This book wraps Every. Possible. Cliché. In. The. Book. into one absolutely terrible read. Decorated ex-military officer, but with the one event that he regrets? Check. Tacky one-liners? Check. The president that can rely on ONLY this one man to save the world? Yep. Nazis? Oh yeah. This book is basically a high school boy's fantasy, which is appropriate since the writing evokes memories of high-school fiction writing. The fact that the first page didn't say "Jeremy Robinson, Grade 9, Mrs. Smith's English class" was a bit surprising. I can't burn my Nook in protest, though I was tempted. In truth, I can't NOT finish a book. I can't walk out of bad movies either. It's my curse. I think I really do try to give the creators a chance. So somehow I finished this book. And I almost gave the author (the horrible, horrible author) credit for not dropping the one cliché that I was convinced he would. Then I read the epilogue. Oh yeah, he went there. I regret reading this book. It has scarred a part of my brain that I can never recover. Please—please do not make the same mistake.

    This was one of the best books that I have read in some time, and there is quite a bit of competition for that claim. SecondWorld was an amazing combination of action, suspense, historical fiction, and science fiction. I was a little reluctant to start reading because I was concerned that it would be another apocalyptic tale. I enjoyed the Strain Trilogy but it really ended on such a down note that it was depressing. SecondWorld is not a story of doom a gloom, but rather a fantastic adventure with a plot the took one interesting turn after another.

    I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you are looking for a fun summer read that is full of action, adventure, and is unlike anything you have read before, this is the book to pick up. I found myself hoping that it would not end.

    Not very good

    Creativity was really lacking in this book. The idea was promising, but the story telling was lame. I wouldn't recommend this book.

    just awesome!
    Secondworld is a very new, fresh story.
    Lincoln Miller a retired Navy Seal and current NCIS investigator, is a lone survivor in a massive attack in Miami.
    He comes to find out that this attack was set in motion over 70 years ago.
    Another page turner from Mr. Robinson!!!
