(From the publisher):
Buried deep in the earth's polar ice cap--carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States--is the site of a remarkable experiment that blurred the line between life and death. Abandoned for more than seventy years, Ice Station Grendel--the twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union--was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible.
But an American undersea research vessel, the Polar Sentinel, has inadvertently pulled too close. And a crew member has seen something alive inside, something whose survival defies every natural law.
As scientists, soldiers, intelligence operatives of two powerful nations, and unsuspecting civilians alike are drawn into Grendel's lethal vortex, no measures undertaken to protect its mysteries will be considered too extreme. Because the terrible truths locked behind submerged walls of ice and steel could forever alter humankind's future...or destory it.
