ORIGINS EDITION: This revised, expanded and re-edited edition of Beneath addresses the flaws exposed by reader reviews--flaws that have now been eradicated. This fresh version of the book is now cleaner and also clears up some of the confusion readers felt about the strange behavior of certain characters.
When evidence of microscopic life on Europa--Jupiter's sixth moon--is discovered, a crew of astronauts and scientists embark on a mission to discover its source. Led by oceanographer and biologist, Kathy Connelly, the crew is charged with the task of melting through miles of ice to the hidden ocean beneath, where the search for alien microorganisms begins. But a startling discovery awaits them on the surface of Europa--life.
Vast fields of red, plant-like organisms fill the cracks crisscrossing the moon's surface, surviving on nutrients welling up from the waters below. Encouraged by the discovery of life on the surface, Connelly and her crew activate the Thermal Exploratory System and melt through the ice toward a world that does not want to be found, toward an intelligence that will do anything to make sure they never leave.
BENEATH takes all of the action, thrills, imagination and strange creatures that Jeremy Robinson is known for and puts them in the most extreme environment imaginable: the surface, and sub-ice ocean of a moon four hundred million miles away from Earth.
PRAISE FOR BENEATH:
"Here's a near-future space adventure that's as frightening as it is smart. Jeremy Robinson's BENEATH is packed with believable tech, a page-turning story and an alien intelligence so creepy, you'll pray NASA never makes it past the moon."
--J.C. Hutchins, author of PERSONAL EFFECTS: DARK ART and 7th SON: DESCENT
"Jeremy Robinson hits his stride in BENEATH. His story-telling is as tight as ever, delivering thrills that raise the heart rate and science detail that gets the mind cranking just has hard. An evocative blend of Crichton and Clarke, BENEATH is destined to become an instant new media classic."
--Phil Rossi, Best Selling author of CRESCENT, and EDEN
"Robinson grabbed my attention in the first chapter, and kept hold of it. BENEATH isn't your run of the mill way distant future fantasy sci-fi. It reads like its real, like it could happen today...but we hope and pray it doesn't."
--Basil Sands, author of 65 BELOW
"Masterful Craftsmanship...a chilling tale that finally answers the question: Are we alone?"
PRAISE FOR JEREMY ROBINSON
"In Robinson's latest action fest, Jack Sigler, King of the Chess Team--a Delta Forces unit whose gonzo members take the names of chess pieces--tackles his most harrowing mission yet.Threshold elevates Robinson to the highest tier of over-the-top action authors and it delivers beyond the expectations even of his fans. The next Chess Team adventure cannot come fast enough."
-- Booklist - Starred Review
"In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." ...Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet."
"Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure."
-- James Rollins
"PULSE contains all of the danger, treachery, and action a reader could wish for."
-- Steve Berry
"Wildly imaginative and diabolical."
-- Douglas Preston
