I am a huge fan of historical adventures that may add in some unconventional elements to make an intriguing story. Some of my favorite authors in this genre are Preston & Child, James Rollins, and Clive Cussler. I was thrilled to find author Kevin Tinto’s debut novel, “ICE”, that also pulls these elements together masterfully and it was a fantastic read. The story of Leah, an archaeologist, and her estranged husband, Jack, who set off on an adventure to Antarctica after a discovery in New Mexico. There is mystery here, danger, and a wonderful fast-paced adventure that kept me highly engaged. I loved the two main characters and their intense relationship and am excited to see that this will be a continuing series. Very well done.

Next Generation Indie Book Awards
The debut bestseller that has sold more than 400,000 Kindle and paperback versions!
Archaeologist Leah Andrews stumbles upon something inexplicable in southwestern New Mexico: inside a dark cavern lies an undiscovered, Native American cliff dwelling abandoned for 800 years. While twisting through one of the narrow underground passageways, Leah’s flashlight illuminates the remains of a violent massacre.
Ancient human remains—all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre—cover the cavern floor, along with several brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare gems are native to only one place on earth: a frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.
Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years before the first known human exploration? If so, how? And why?
There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.
At their destination, they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.
As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.
