Below Zero

(6 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Chicken House

Zac has something nasty growing inside his head. The holiday in St Lucia was supposed to be a short respite before months of treatment began, but Mum and Dad are world-leading robotics experts and – when there’s an emergency – must go where duty calls.

When the family arrive at Outpost Zero in the Antarctica, they are expecting a community in training for a mission to Mars – but they find no one. There is nothing at all, except for strange insect shells and spider drones that seem to have minds of their own. And then really bad things start to happen...

The tension and sense of dread build rapidly in this brilliantly constructed horror thriller. As the fear increases, you might want to avoid things that go bump in the night – or perhaps only read this book during daylight hours. Amid al this, Below Zero also asks fundamental questions about humankind's domination of Planet Earth.
