Dead Ice is the 4th origins book for Dane and Bones When we think of a Faberge Egg we picture something that is beautiful and delicate In this case, the Faberge Egg is highly dangerous Dane and Bones are sent to recover this Egg from a Russian nuclear sub that is partially frozen in ice Obvious, two US military personnel are not going to be welcome by the Russians.On Wrangel Island, there is than just the Russians to contend with there are also animals that are believed to be extinct Add to that is the extreme cold temperatures It is so interesting to take a flashback to the previous military life of Dane on Bones Love that you get caught up in the story Wonderful pace and action packed.Brilliant Okay read Would have liked a faster pace. Cold, but Quick, Action Dead Ice by David Wood and Steven Savile, is an action adventure book set in the early 1980s in the deep cold of Arctic Russian territory Dane Maddock leads a crack military team with his best friend, a Cherokee named Bones, and the alluring, infuriating Russian American Zara Leopov Their mission is to locate and secure a lost Faberge egg that hides a deadly secret from Rasputin What greets them on the small, frozen island, besides dead woolly mammoths and vibrantly alive sabertooth tigers, are an ice trapped nuclear sub with a dead crew, a crazy Russian, and a stealthy Spetznaz military team that equals their own skills What this American team discovers, though, is unexpected by all but Leopov, and even she didn t believe their find.Readers who enjoy action and military action will enjoy this fast moving book. This one seemed a little rougher than the Dane and Bones stories or the other prequels The boys are sent North to a frozen island looking for something called Romanav s Bane and a missing Russian Submarine With them is a female Russian Language specialist with an agenda of her own Can the boys stop a madman and a superweapon This book is fun and action packed The humour is all over the place It just read a little rough, but hey if you like the other Dane and Bones books, you will like this one. When reading this book, I couldn t help feel that there were missing parts We open in a conference room, and the next chapter takes us directly to the site discussed without any interlude I kind of wanted there to be a bit of discussion at that point, perhaps building relationships between the characters and developing their motivations Instead, I found myself unsure of what any motivations were, and I found I didn t care much about the characters If they d all died, I wouldn t have felt any sense of loss.However, the overall plot was entertaining, even if it was only a bare skeleton I m just saying that I wish it had been fleshed out. An engaging storyline and story that moves along quickly.The subjects of this story are cut from some of my worst teenage nightmares, and a few of those suffered as an adult As the first Maddock and Bones tale I ve read I find I m missing some backstory on the characters, their history not that clearly carried forward Ditto some of the smaller details from scene to scene While I had some continuity issues, they definitely do not take away from a good plot and resolution Would definitely recommend this book. Real enjoyable little thriller Excitement in the Arctic as a Russian sub with a deadly secret may harbour a deadly secret that could threaten all of mankind Sent to obtain the secret known as Romanovs Bane before the Russian Spetsnaz, Dane Maddock and his group of intrepid Navy Seals have to get their first.Excitement with a hint of Alistair MacLean brought up to date Exciting, thrills and spills and doesnt outstay its welcome. Another great addition to the Dane Bones origin novellas David Wood Steven Savile are great writers in their own right, but they do a superb job together, weaving an interesting, fun adventure with high stakes If you haven t read anything by these two authors or are new to the characters, this is a fantastic jumping off point It is very easy to read in one sitting and makes for a fun afternoon of reading Go get a copy, don t wait, just do it.
