Best thriller in memory, more breathtaking even than its brilliant precursor, Fragment, by the same author. Wonderful, strong, original characters evolve as the story develops.  The descriptions of the underground setting, a cavern in Russia with an entire newly discovered but very ancient ecosystem of incredibly scary and authentically drawn creatures, let you feel you're actually there, like watching a 3D movie. Fahy has done his research well, in the geology of caves and the evolutionary biology of life forms, and describes them with great realism. The complex plot is masterminded by a Russian oligarch who has developed a huge underground city with tourism in mind, built on the caves and tunnels originally dug by Stalin as a get-away during the Cold War. We meet again our scientist friends from Fragment's Henders Island adventure, Nell and Geoffrey, and the amazing intelligent hendros rescued from Henders Island. They become involved in an ever more terrifying sequence of events as humans battle Nature's most perverse and destructive inventions. It is a masterfully constructed rollercoaster ride of accelerating terror and treachery, ameliorated only by the spectrum of courage, loyalty, love and friendship among the leading characters.  Pandemonium is a book I couldn't put down, caught in the author's web of heart-pounding suspense. Every detail fits in the right place, at the right moment, with the right words. Yet there is no second-guessing the outcome. Fahy always has another surprise in store, to the last paragraph.  Without giving away too much, imagine what can happen when two alien ecosystems collide and when the forces of Nature let loose against the best minds of humans and hendros. Pandemonium ranks up there with the best of Michael Crichton's work, though the comparison is unfair to Warren Fahy's originality. I'd give it 10 stars if Barnes & Noble offered that scale.

I stayed up all night to read it and was rewarded greatly. It is a thriller that would rival Crichton or Cussler! I cannot wait to see what Fahy has up his sleeve next!!!

Finally! For the life of me, I dont understand why the original publisher didn't publish this. Every bit much as thrilling as its predecessor, FRAGMENT.

A super intense science fiction/horror/action/thriller.  I didn't think I could enjoy any Warren Fahy book more than "Fragment" but I enjoyed "Pandemonium" even more!  I didn't know how much of "Fragment" would carry over to this book but Fahy brings all the best stuff.  We get Nell and Geoffry Binswanger, the biologists who survived Henders Island, the intelligent Hendros who were taken off the island before it was nuked and we have the incredibly lethal species of Henders Island that somehow  have survived to menace humanity once again.  Add to that a mad Russian billionaire, a secret Soviet subterranean city, a whole new ultra lethal, undiscovered ecological niche and human paranoia and you get "Pandemonium"! Warren Fahy does a couple of things that make his work really grab my interest.  As in "Fragment" he uses evolutionary biology to not only make the story sound plausible but also extremely interesting.  Yeah, these animals will kill you in all kinds of gruesome ways but The way they're written, I want to know more about them!   And what he does for the science of "Pandemonium", he also does for the setting.  The Russian billionaire. Maxim Dragolovich, has a secret city under the Ural Mountains, a city built by Stalin.  This city has accessed a completely new and bizarre ecological niche, a very deadly ecological niche.....  Fahy gives the city of Pobedograd an amazing mythic quality. And while you're drawn in by the science and astounded by the grandeur of Pobedograd, you might forget for a second that Warren Fahy is one hell of an action writer!  And when this thing kicks into high gear, it really explodes!   I can only give it a huge thumbs way up.

This book didn't have the page turning intensity of Fahy's first outing but it still had plenty of action. I enjoy how the author extends existing scientific knowledge to place it in the realm of the extreme. It reminds me of Michael Crichton's work. For those who didn't read Fragment, there is enough background to get through this novel but reading the first installment would help make some of the dangers more understandable.

The first book in the series, Fragment was such an amazing novel that I couldn't wait to start this sequel.  I was not disappointed.  Pandemonium was an outrageous adventure from cover to cover.  It used the events of Fragment as a foundation a built upon the events and characters of the book to create a story that was chilling and nearly impossible stop reading.  I found myself reading late into the night on more than one occasion.  If you loved Fragment, you must read Pandemonium.  If you haven't read either, what are you waiting for?  :-)
