In the desolate reaches of southernmost Chile, a remarkable discovery has been made. It is a massive meteorite whose very existence will change science - perhaps even mankind. In great secrecy, an expedition sets out on a converted tanker, bound for the bottom of the world. But almost as soon as the recovery process begins, the mysteries and enigmas begin to mount.

What appeared to be simply an engineering challenge quickly becomes a perilous undertaking, for the bizarre, implacable artefact may not be what it seems. And when a raging storm drives the tanker beyond the dangerous Antarctic latitude known as the Ice Limit, superstition, egos and the unknown clash to create a stunning finale that will risk the lives of everyone on board.

Found this book very uninteresting. Surprised, usually like these authors. Would not really recommend.

Not what I expected and thought the story line disappointed especially at the end.

This is the perfect book about human hubris and above all, one man's inability to accept his human limitations. Well written, entertaining, and well-developed characters. I think the end was a bit over the top. Overall a very good read

Could anyone not see the outcome of this book? Nature vs. Human and technology. Dude, you know who is going to win!

Read this book as a digital audio book. Well read by narrator.

A good read with interesting characters.

Didn't find the ending was strong -- though the news clippings at the end, left you hanging.....
