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.

This collected edition of The Antarktos Saga includes all five books in the series-Descent, Pursuit, Ascent, Lament and Onslaught, as well as never before seen art and character designs inspired by the series, an exclusive short story titled "The Children of Antarktos" and an interview with bestselling author Jeremy Robinson, composed primarily of questions asked by fans of the series.

Jeremy Robinson has done it again, creating fantastic loveable characters. A story that is easy to read as the writing is so good, it really captures the readers attention and imagination. It is always good to find a series of books that you can get lost in and this is definitely one of those series. Having them all together in a complete collectors edition is great and will provide hours of entertainment. The Q & A with the author is interesting and insight. The short story, gives fans what they've longed for....more Solomon

EXCELLENT Read! I’ve read Pulse, Instinct and Threshold, and absolutely love Jeremy Robinson’s work, so I thought I’d give Antarkos a try…I was NOT disappointed! This is by far the best series I’ve read, very well written!  I read the first book in the series (The Last Hunter – Descent) and enjoyed it so much I bought the collected edition, as well as Antarkos Rising.  As suggested, I read Antarkos Rising after book two of the collection and they dovetailed nicely!    Jeremy Robinson is truly a talented writer – you’re transported to and immersed in the world of Solomun Ull Vincent.   The characters are developed in a way that makes you really interested in what happens to them, and what happens next in the story.    It is better to buy the collected edition; there is a sketchbook with some great artwork and an excellent interview with Jeremy Robinson, as well as a tantalizing short story that ties up a few loose ends.  I definitely did not want this saga to end and would be very happy to see a continuation of the series!

Slide those JR Tolkien books over to make room for The Last Hunter. When I first started this book series I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. I had gotten the Collected Edition that had all 5 The Last Hunter books in 1 volume so I started with the first book in the series. I had read several of Jeremy Robinson’s other books and trusted that I wouldn’t be disappointed with this story. I wasn’t.  This is the story of Solomon Ull Vincent, the only human born on Antarctica and the last hunter. But of course, you already knew that.  Antarctica isn’t anything like we think. Oh sure, it’s covered in ice and snow and is very cold. But there are civilizations living under the ice and snow! Ancient civilizations. The underground has rivers, waterfalls, forests, and creatures. Solomon calls Antarctica, Antarktos. It seems fitting to call the land something different.  The civilizations underground are ruled by the Nephilim, half humans, half demons. They are giants, the gods of myths and legends that are evil and delight in pain. Humans have become slaves to them. Humans stolen as babies, young children, even adults. The humans are their teachers, keeping them up-to-date with what is happening in the world as well as hunters. The humans that become hunters are tortured, broken, until they don’t remember their past, their families, even their names. The Nephilim are planning to attack the earth and wipe out the humans as soon as their leader, Nephil, is restored. He has been exiled to a place of torment, Tartarus.   Solomon, being born on Antarctica, has a connection to the land, a supernatural connection. The Nephilim want him to become the vessel for their exiled leader. We follow Solomon as he is captured and escapes. He spends time in Tartarus learning about forgiveness, letting go of burdens, and forgiving himself.  He surprises the hunters and Nephilim by leaving Tartarus. The belief was that one couldn’t leave. Solomon rallies many hunters to fight against the Nephilim. These hunters call him king.  At the end of book 2, the poles on earth shift, causing Antarktos to be aligned along the new equator. Much of what was populated areas of the earth are now covered in ice and snow. Billions of people died. Because of this, the surviving countries race to claim possession of Antarctica. That story is told in the book Antarktos Rising, by Jeremy and is well worth reading.  When the Nephilim come to the surface they find themselves battling armies from many countries. Solomon aligns himself with the armies, becoming their leader because of his abilities, knowledge of the Nephilim, and connection to the land.  Throughout the story threads the theme of forgiveness. Solomon teaches the hunters about forgiveness and the strength it can give them. He also teaches them about letting go the burden of all the evil they did as broken hunters serving the Nephilim, forgiving themselves.  This is an epic adventure and is filled with Jeremy’s special brand of amazing, fanciful creatures. The continuity between the books in the series and Antarktos Rising is spot on. Although the series is quite different and much faster paced than Tolkien’s The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series, it has the same feel of adventure and wisdom.  As I stated earlier in this review, I wasn’t disappointed. In fact I was quite surprised and pleased. You won’t be disappointed when you read this series, even if you don’t make the same connections to Tolkien that I did.

I absolutely loved this book. It is simply one of the best books I've ever read. I flew through it in a few weeks. Epic battles, dinosaurs, other various creatures and monstrosities, dinosaurs, awesome characters, fluid and descriptive writing detailing every scene and setting, excellent finish will leave you wanting more. In the Collected Edition there is! Awesome artwork, a cool interview with Jeremy Robinson, and the appetizing short story, "The Children of Antarktos." It also contains a sample from "Antarktos Rising", an excellent parallel and intersecting stand alone novel in the same setting, I strongly recommend reading this book in between parts 2 (Pursuit) and 3 (Ascent) of The Last Hunter-it completes the experience with an interesting interlude that is actually very much part of the story. I cannot recommend you read this more!

This is the absolute BEST series I have read, hands down! Jeremy Robinson had to reach deep into his mind to pull this one out. After reading Episode #2 you must then read "Antarktos Rising" and go on to Episode #3. Thank you Jeremy for the hours of pure enjoyment

6 books (if you include Antarktos Rising) of pure awesomeness! the story of Sol and his struggles with who he is and who he becomes after his adventure begins is just thrilling!

You really care what happens to the characters in this series for sure. it's a story of forgiveness, resilience, strength, love, & true hero stuff!!! I 110% guarantee this novel series as a 5 star epic!!!

When I found out about this book, it didn't interest me as much as his previous books had, I held of 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 had 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 on his books.  This series sealed the deal.  It is beautiful in its detail, funny, full of adventure and a great original story.  I encourage you to check it out.  The extra content in this book adds to the story.  Great fan art, interesting Q&A and a short story I had been waiting for for a while.  You will not be disappointed, by this book or any of Jeremy's books.

During holiday break I read this entire collection. Just plain awesome entertainment, with such great imagery, heart, reality, myth and fantasy all in one. I would love to see a continuation of the great Antarktos, and all its heroes and heroines. Please write more Jeremy!
