"Ice Tomb" de Deborah Jackson

The year is 2015. Deep within the Antarctic Ice Sheet a hotspot suddenly appears on satellite tracking. The US science team, sent from McMurdo Station to investigate, finds an icy graveyard. Minutes later, their transmission is cut off. The last sounds heard over the radio are their screams.

NASA lures volcanologist Erica Daniels to a conference in Houston by promising to consider her for their upcoming mission—establishing the first moon base. Instead, her archrival and ex-lover, David Marsh, gets the plum assignment, while she’s sent to Antarctica to lead a new team beneath the ice. An irritating British archaeologist and a brilliant Russian astrophysicist join her on a journey through unforgiving snowscapes and mysterious ice tunnels. They present her with extraordinary suggestions for the origin of the hotspot. Along the way, Erica unearths scientific marvels that might just prove her own theory. But why is the ice sheet littered with bodies? Is the activity under the ice the remnants of an ancient civilization or is there a more sinister explanation? To discover the truth Erica will have to join forces with the man she despises—a man who’s on the moon.


Empecé el año 2016 con mal pie, y es que no me ha gustado nada este libro. Me ha resultado pesado, aburrido, y encima con la típica historia romántica de chica que, a pesar de ser un genio en su trabajo y tener supuestamente un carácter fuerte, necesita tener al chico dominante a su lado. Puafff .

Está catalogado como libro de ciencia ficción, con suspense, pero con tanto toque romántico no se yo.

Para darle más "empaque" al libro, la autora se pierde en explicaciones científicas que creo que sólo Einstein puede entender. Así que hay páginas del libro que para el común de los mortales son infumables.
