Hey guys. Today I am bringing you this weeks Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. All you have to do is share what books you got in the previous week. You can find more information here. I’m actually going to start doing it a bit differently. From now on I’m just going to highlight one book I got during the week that I’m really excited about. So read on to see the book I am excited about this week.
Ice Station by Matthew Reilly
At a remote US ice station in Antarctica, a team of scientists has made an amazing discovery. They found something unbelievable buried deep below the surface – trapped inside a layer of ice 400 million years old.
Something made of metal…something which shouldn’t be there…it’s the discovery of a lifetime, a discovery of immeasurable value. And a discovery men will kill for.
Led by the enigmatic Lieutenant Shane Schofield, a crack team of US Marines is rushed to the ice station to secure this bizarre discovery for their nation. Meanwhile other countries have developed the same ideas, and are ready to pursue it swiftly and ruthlessly. Fortunately, Schofield’s men are a tough unit, all set to follow their leader into hell.
They soon discover they just did…
The reason I am highlighting this book is because this is a book I have already read, and it is one of my favourites of all time. I read this years ago, but the copy I had didn’t match the rest of the series, and this edition was £20 for the paperback for ages for some reason, so when it finally came down in price, I snatched it up. I am so happy to have this back on my shelves, and now I kind of want to do a reread.
