death – violence – guns – army – gore – extreme injuries – animal attacks – fire

I’m exhausted by the sheer volume of high-energy action scenes

I think it’s a well-known fact these days that Matthew Reilly writes gripping stories that are all action with little reprieve. Well, at least the books I’ve read by him follow this.

Ice Station is an unrelenting string of events from start to end that has you flipping the pages lile a maniac.

I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time because I’ve heard so many good things about Reilly’s writing – but had only read one of his books previously! This definitely did not let me down, and despite the fact I’m not a fan of guns and excessive violence (which is a succinct summary of the book), I found this really enjoyable because the characters are so well developed.

Perhaps it was the audiobook narrator who did this for me, and perhaps those reading the physical book felt different, but Scarecrow is a strangely lovable character and I became so attached to everyone in his team.

There is a shocking amount of violence and death, so do be warned on that front. But this feels like the ultimate action novel for the older reader who is gasping for 500 pages of go-go-go!

Grab a copy!
