"Another crisply plotted tale from the fertile imagination of Jeremy Robinson.  This one has it all, frozen Nazis, UFO crashes, Antarctica, and some really cool science.  Plan to hunker down for all-nighter with this one.  I did." –Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key "Robinson blends myth, science and terminal velocity action like no one else." –Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal The high adventure of James Rollins meets the gripping suspense of Matthew Reilly in Jeremy Robinson's explosive new thriller, SecondWorld. Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy SEAL turned NCIS Special Agent is sent to Aquarius, the world’s only sub-oceanic research facility located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller’s fingers and tastes like blood.Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing. No ships. No polluters.No oxygen.Instead, he finds a cloudless sky full of red particles dropping like snow and coating the ocean with a thick film that stretches to the horizon. When a dead blue whale collides with Aquarius, Miller begins a harrowing race to escape the affected area.  Cut off from the rest of the world and surrounded by death, Miller makes his way to Miami where he discovers just one survivor, and the awful truth: the strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life giving oxygen was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they’re just getting started. Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. Millions are dead. And if Miller can’t track down and stop those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world is next.MORE PRAISE FOR ROBINSON:"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, New York Times bestselling author of THE DEVIL COLONY and ALTAR OF EDEN"With THRESHOLD Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory.

8, 2012“Shit!”The microwave door flew open and Rachel Carter reachedher hand in.The spoon, left in the bowl of oatmeal and heated along withthe cardboard-flavored breakfast, had been shooting off blue sparkswhen she noticed it. Without thinking, she grabbed the spoon. Amillisecond later, her mind registered the stupidity of her action,along with the searing heat. Her arm reacted quicker than herfingers, flailing backward. The spoon soared across the kitchen,weighted with expensive organic oats, and smacked against thestainless steel fridge, where both breakfast and spoon clung likeSilly Putty.Rachel turned on the tap and ran cold water over her pulsingindex finger and thumb, her glare fixed on the spoon. It slid slowlytoward the floor.“You okay, Mom?” asked her ten- year-old daughter, Samantha.“Fine.”Samantha walked past the fridge, paused, stepped back andlooked at the spoon. She turned to her mother with an eyebrowraised. “Fine?”Rachel forced a smile that communicated a single message:don’t ask.Samantha shrugged and pulled a chair up to the counter. Sheclimbed onto the chair, then onto the counter.“Get down from there!”“I’m hungry.”“I made you oatmeal.”

Rated 4/5
An apocalyptic thriller featuring a 2012 Nazi revival, the story moves at a rapid pace. There's more than enough thrills and spills, twists and unexpected turns to keep you turning pages. Its hard to put down.

Based on my experiences with Jeremy Robinson’s SecondWorld, I have determined that he is not that great of a writer; however, he is a fairly decent storyteller. While the book arguable starts on chapter 3, and the writing is choppy and somewhat expositional, if you let yourself immerse into the story, you start to see something that is captivating, and at times, a page-turner.When red flakes begin to fall from the sky, draining the oxygen from the nearby atmosphere, NCIS agent Lincoln Miller, one of two survivors to make it out of Miami, is tasked by the President to find those people responsible and make them pay. It mixes thriller with conspiracy theory to give an edge-of-your-seat story complete with explosions, catastrophes, and even neo-Nazis.While not an example of literary greatness, SecondWorld is a clever story that can keep the reader engaged up until its very end. This book is recommended for those who like modern war novels or military thrillers, especially those that make liberal use of prime-time “science.” Something like 24, perhaps (though I must admit to having never actually watched the show).

I only started this book on my way into work today, but already it has hooked and disturbed me at the same time. It is about a weapon of mass destruction developed by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II which causes the air to lose its life-giving oxygen and killing everyone in its path. Already Miami, Tel Aviv and Tokyo have been hit and it is up to Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy seal, who was in an underwater research facility during the time of the attack to track down and stop those responsible before they move on to the rest of the world. - Sheila
