Taking a Look at Freezing Point by Karen Dionne

Imagine you work for a large corporation; a corporation wanting nothing more than to create - yes, create - the next greatest supplier of water for those who need it. How? By travelling to Antarctica, where the answer exists in the form of an immense iceberg. The plans have been hashed and rehashed. The iceberg will be liquified... for pure, clean drinking water.

And then...

Imagine you're a scientist. You've worked with a team of specialists for years, studied the polar ice, lived a meager existence. You support environmentalism. Your goal has been preservation. Then man steps in. And ruins it all.

What happens when the two worlds collide? And, worse yet, what happens when an unforeseen horror - bigger than anyone can imagine - threatens everyone involved?

Karen Dionne has been called "the new Michael Crichton." This debut novel, the eco-thriller Freezing Point, will be released in October 2008. I recommend you order your copy now! Her written voice is truly gripping.

And come back on September 15th, when I'll review Kathleen Kent's The Heretic's Daughter, an historical novel about the Salem witch trials, in connection with Blog Stop Book Tours.

This sounds really cool! I'm hoping it comes out in Kindle format!

Aaron, I just checked Amazon.

If you follow the (looooooong) link, there's an option to "tell the publisher [you'd] like to read this book on Kindle." Get to it, man! :D

Thanks! I did it. :-) Much appreciated.

Melanie Avila said...

Or buy it from my blog!!! There's a link. :)

Great review Janna. I'm so excited for her! I'm hoping to see her Friday but I don't know if it's going to work out. She's a little busy right now...

Joanne said...

Great conflict here, the two worlds colliding. Timely too, with conservation issues and going green. Looks like a good read.

aaroncrocco said...

Melanie, I may just do that. Perhaps though, I am just a Kindle snob. :-)

Janna Qualman said...

I admit, Joanne, it's not of a genre I've often read. And (I even told Karen this) much of the science content was above my head. BUT, like I said in the post, the tale was gripping. And I should have mentioned this in the post, but the entire thing had me playing it through my head like a movie, with thoughts as to who would play what characters. Cool, huh?

Joanne said...

Janna - Yes, very cool. I also do that, imagining who would play the char I happen to be reading!

Hey, Janna - thanks for the nice words about my novel! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And aaroncrocco - I'm told it's going to be available in a Kindle version - thanks for asking!

As for you, Melanie, OF COURSE I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!!! Safe travels! xoxo
