Novel Publicity Blog Tours: A Line in the Ice
A Line in the Ice By Jamie Craig
Bloodthirsty monsters are emerging from the Antarctic ice, the same creatures that once stalked the battlegrounds of World War I. Back then, a group of soldiers valiantly fought off the beasts—and were never seen again. A century later, an elite military squad stands between civilization and the mysterious return of the enemy.
Captain Charlie Weller thinks she’s seen everything— until a man crawls out onto the ice, barely alive and muttering about a place called Illyria. Lysander Davies claims to be the descendant of one of the missing soldiers. He insists the monsters are actually gentle creatures, under the control of beings far, far more dangerous…
Drawn to the stranger, Charlie believes his stories and agrees to help him. But they both know nothing can come of their feelings for one another, for the only way to save earth is for Lysander to return to Illyria and close the rift behind him, forever…

This is a pure Sci-Fi book with a little bit of romance thrown in. All right, a lot of romance. Charlie is a hard as nails woman in the Arctic who finds her heart being thawed by a mysterious man who emerges from the ice. As the struggle and the war between the "Aliens" and humans, and the aliens themselves, heats up, so does the relationship between Charlie and Lysander. For the sci-fi fans out there, you might find the format a little familiar, but the twists will be enough to hold your attention. Do be aware some of the scenes are erotic and will not be suitable for the under eighteen crowd.
For this decidedly non sci-fi fan the story was well written and able to hold my attention. I would gladly lend it out. If you are looking for an interesting and off beat sci-fi tale, this book is for you.
