    2. This book lived up to the amazing cover art I was drawn to the book originally because of the cover and the blurb on the back cover The story itself made me stay focused and nervous while the characters were being hunted in a hostile environment The writing was great, it kept me on the edge of my seat I enjoyed the tension that Ben Hammott brought to the story and he kept at it until I was just sheer nervous energy I appreciate NetGalley allowing me to read this book and am happy to provide this [...]

    3. They say that you shouldn t judge a book by it s cover but OMG with this one you should The cover is stunning and the story inside is one of the best SciFi horror books that I have had the pleasure to read For me it has been a cross between The Thing a 1982 film which was being watched by some of the station s crew, nice touch and The Hunger Games, without the games but the most weird and wonderful creatures but much too, bigger and much vicious It all makes for a spectacular story This is set [...]

    4. So another book set in a cold climate This time the book, Ice Rift by Ben Hammond is set in the most cold and challenging climate Antarctica The book is described as an action adventure survival horror set in Antarctica , which is actually a pretty good description A group of scientists set out on a research trip Asked to look at an unusual ice rift for NASA, bad weather drives the team into the rift and deeper into something wholly unexpected.Ice Rift spends a significant amount of time describ [...]

    5. Wow I came into this book not really sure what to expect.The prologue left me still unsure of what to expect it was a great introduction to Mimic, who turned out to be a fascinating character but left questions Did suck me in though.The book is set in present time, but has futuristic technology if that makes sense Really, it s alien technology that humans stumble upon Hammott manages to make it seem plausible It s not hard to believe that any other race would be advanced than humans as clearly [...]

    6. I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for a fair, honest review I am completely obsessed with Antarctica I think it s because it is one of the last wild, unpredictable, un tameable places left on earth Due to the temperature, it s dangerous just to be there, so my vivid imagination just revels in the sparkling, beautiful ice, the howling wind and the frozen, icy quiet that can kill your ass in minutes.What better place to set a horror novel The basic concept is not new by any [...]

    7. UPDATE March 3, 2017 I just finished reading this book for the second time I really hadn t meant to but I bought the sequel and wanted to refresh my memory I didn t check my old review that I had written in 2016 before doing any of this because if I had I wouldn t have bought the sequel and surely wouldn t have started to re read ICE RIFT I am so glad it worked out this way though The author has done a lot of work editing proofreading the book and it really shows I still did catch a couple of mi [...]

    8. I was asked to review this book and am so very glad that I accepted I am not the greatest fan of sci fi but the plot of this one and being adventure action intrigued me hence the read This is a wonderfully entertaining book Every alien you could ever imagine and I was going to say that I could imagine this as a film but think I might be hiding behind the sofa Reading it however, the monsters come across as scary, colourful, imaginative characters exactly as they should in this scenario A rogue [...]

    9. Ice rift by Ben Hammott is a horror and mystery and thriller read An action adventure survival horror set in Antarctica.Something ancient dwells beneath the iceHumans have always looked to the stars for signs of Extraterrestrials.They have been looking in the wrong place.They are already here, entombed beneath Antarctic ice for thousands of years.The ice is melting and soon they will be free Events in Ice Rift makes joining Ripley aboard the Nostromo seem like a pleasant thing to do What a absol [...]

    10. Lots of action Good idea but somewhat inept writing Enjoyed the novel anyway I think it would make a great movie with the special effects.

    11. A Slasher Film in Book FormAs I was reading Ice Rift, I kept thinking it had a number of similarities to a slasher film In particular, I was thinking of that scene where the so to be victims are deciding if they should hide in the basement, when that is exactly where the psychotic killer does his thing And you keep thinking, don t go to the basement, don t go to the basement and of course, they all go to the basement In this case, I was thinking, don t go into that alien space ship with the malf [...]

    12. Ice Rift by Ben Hammond is a wonderful read It took three days to complete And, at any given time, I had to make myself stop reading in order to maintain my tasks of life During those times, all I could think about was getting back to the story What a thrill Ice Rift provided believable characters Likable, interesting characters Throughout the journey, the reader explores the wonderful, and for me, unfamiliar territory of Antarctica s ice and snow terrain The exploration of Ice Rift s characters [...]

    13. What happened It started out so greatAbout 45% of the way into the book it seemed like we had an author swap Initially the characters had distinct personalities and the story flowed nicely Then, bam, all the the characters dialogue sounded like they stepped out of a bad Jane Austen or Tolkein adaptation At one point one of the characters literally says, Flee you fools, flee The story continues to flow nicely Their situation is escalating so I kept reading in spite of the sudden corny cardboard d [...]

    14. Stock characters and storylineExtremely derivative of Alien and The The Thing Completely stock characters and plot line Rugged hero, selfish guy who betrays people, female lead who is a scientist and weak but seems to only think about the rugged hero or her ex, even old wise scientist guy who is friendly and risk averse Alien ship trapped underneath the ice seems to be able to sustain life for tens of thousands of years None of this Alien life ever makes it out on to earth s surface though even [...]

    15. So far I ve read to the blizzard scene, plane crash, and trip to the bottom of the rift cave The characters in this book are in no way believable Never have I seen a friendly boss ruffle the hair of an employee How demeaning can you get A plane flying through the rift is hit by a falling ice rover Wow What ridiculous bad timing People talking to a jerk guy with childish, open insults in a group setting is stunningly off the mark In one scene in order to get his co worker scientist on the trip, a [...]

    16. This was an enjoyable book Very much like the horror thriller movies that come out, it is action from the get go However, I did find myself shaking my head and asking the charactersAre you really that stupid Are you sure that is a good idea is made my husband look at me since I apparently asked them out loud This was a fun book to read with well thought out monsters I will probably read the sequel.

    17. I have always loved a good monster horror movie When I found out it was also it s own genre of books I knew I would be looking in to all the titles I could find.That said, I was thoroughly disappointed I was initially interested in the plot and premise, but the style of writing lost my interest quickly There are continual run on sentences, overdone reactions, 2 dimensional characters Reading this became a real struggle not a book I would recommend.

    18. Why have I never read a science fiction before This had me gripped and scared Was action packed never ending tumble of bizarre alien creatures all hungry With out giving anything away there is one element that is left as a cliff hanger So although technically a stand alone book I have downloaded the second book to find out what happens ,

    19. I know that the author poured heart and soul into penning a thrilling adventure, this one just wasn t for me I can only take so much of being chased by alien monsters thru so many doorways At half way thru the book, I just gave up If the plot had been fairly believable, I might have stuck it out, but its basic premise is not.

    20. Monotonous actionThis story had a lot of potential and wasn t a bad read I just got bored with the constant alien monster chase fight scenes Could have used exploration and discovery and less running and fighting.

    21. Ice Rift ReviewIn Antarctica everyone can hear you scream Humans have always looked to the stars for signs of Extraterrestrials.They have been looking in the wrong place.They are already here, entombed in a spaceship beneath Antarctic ice for thousands of years.The ice is melting and they will soon be free.A huge rift in the ice is discovered in Antarctica that stretches for 18 miles, 29 km and 820 feet 250 meters apart at its widest point.When environmental scientists enter the ice rift to chec [...]

    22. A fun read Aliens in the Antarctica Shades of The Thing kind of funny, as the characters were watching this film along with Alien Not the best overall thriller, but a milder PG 13 version I used my KOLL read for Feb It was easy going and not too deep, would have liked a little suspense when dealing with the monsters.

    23. Great story with lots of surprises that will keep you guessing until the end I really enjoyed this book It wasn t at all what I was expecting you know, like the little green men in the little round saucer ship this story a was much realistically accepting alien tale I LOVE the stories of anything found under the ice that has been there for millennia and has finally been discovered and this one is right up there with the best of them Lots of unexpected things happening so quickly made me hang on [...]

    24. Great Story and Fast PacedThe story is very interesting and Fast paced Tension is well developed and descriptions of events and creatures is well done A sequel would be very interesting Recommend the book.

    25. Fast moving science fiction yarn about a spaceship that crashed on earth thousands of years ago A team of scientists assigned to find the anomaly in a picture comes across the ship Filled with alien life form of every kind, they seem to be on the bottom of the food chain Fun to read Looking forward to reading the sequel.

    26. Great imagination Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book Interesting characters and great detail from a fantastic imagination I definitely see myself reading this book again.

    27. From the intriguing set up, and especially the remote, claustrophobic setting, I was expecting an atmospheric horror thriller along the lines of The Thing or Alien The author even references those two movies several times during the story He clearly has a passion for the genre But Ice Rift is far action packed than either of those stories, practically bursting at the seams with close scrapes, chase sequences, and imaginative alien creatures.For glaciologist Jane, an opportunity to visit Antarct [...]

    28. I was attracted to this book by the book s front cover and publisher s outline But promotional ploys often lead to great disappointment at the inner content.However, this is a novel which surpasses the promotional comment providing a great, fast flowing, sci fi thriller guaranteed to keep you hanging on edge until the end This novel does not claim to be than it is a tremendous read based on a thrilling plot and storyline Whilst the author has, I am sure done all the necessary research on Antarc [...]
