Beyond the Ice Limit

Oh, man.  I’ve been waiting FIFTEEN years for this book!  The Ice Limit was one of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s earlier books and while the story itself was thrilling, it ended on a massive cliffhanger I was dying for the resolution of.  And then I had to wait.  Fifteen years.  Worse still, they kept teasing it in their books.  Characters would be reading books called “Ice Limit 2” and “Ice Limit 3”.  They introduced surviving characters from the book into the larger continuity, and showed them working off-screen on the meteorite problem.  Those teases!

Well, the book was pretty good.  It certainly went in an unexpected direction and told a very creepy and horrifying story.  I would say it met my expectations and wasn’t disappointing.  I did originally think it was odd to do this story in the Gideon Crew series rather than with Pendergast, but it worked.  Still, I always hoped to see Pendergast dealing with the meteorite…

Now I’m starting another book I’ve been dying to read, Star Wars Bloodline, the story that’s going to fill in some of the missing pieces between Return of the Jedi and Force Awakens.  Can’t wait to find out the history of the Resistance and the First Order!
