  • great suspense story

    ***Gifted via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*** Well wow, what a ride... Out of the Ice is a journey into the arctic and also the history of whaling, Ms Turner's Lead character is scientist Laura Alvarado who is sent to report on whether whaling station Fredilighavn, can be adapted for Antarctic Tourism, the idea is not one she wants to agrees with, and she is determined to ensure the wildlife are not put at risk, when she gets a frosty reception at the Alliance station and not much help when she goes to check out the abandoned Whaling Station, now home to seals and penguins, it stands before Laura as if it had been frozen in time. with the houses stood waiting as if their owners had just popped to the shops! - I just loved the world building the writing in the book was so descriptive I could imagine the scenes quite clearly. When Laura sees evidence of recent human interference. She realises that the someone has ignored the exclusion zone rules, and with other spooky things going on Laura is unsure if what she is seeing is real or whether she is 'Toasty' from being in the Arctic so long. When Her friend Kate comes to help her and they go out on a dive to check out the Penguins and Seals at see, Laura gets separated and surfaces in an ice cave where, through the ice wall, sees a figure crying for help. As Laura digs deeper she realises that there is something deeply wrong at the Alliance station and is determined to find out what secret tests they are doing at the Alliance station. This is a suspenseful read, that takes you on a journey as you learn of the history of the Whalers from Norway to Nantucket we get to visit through the words of Ms Turner Venice, Nantucket and of course Antarctica, and as Laura digs further, lives are put in danger. Will Laura discover the truth in time, or will she be forever haunted by the vision of the ice cave forever. I would recommend the book to all readers 16+ who love a great story with developed characters and enough research to create a believable story that will have you on a rollercoaster journey looking answers. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read and review

    Thanks for your feedback!
