    EbookRomantic Adventure I got this book from NetGalley in lieu of an honest review This book is like a romantic suspense novel First you have to throw all continuity and logic out the window so you can enjoy it This book tries to be like a Jeff Long book mixed with Christine Feehan paranormal edge and no sex I read several fictional Antarctic books and this one doesn't get into just how cold the base is how stir crazy the scientists are or how dreary life can be there While 911 is just several years ago in the book the gadgets are very futuristic and the Antarctic has become a ski resort That being said it is readable after all there were Nazis abound The characters are one dimensional; either good or evil I was going to give the book four stars until the last half of the book It kept on going on People were other people people going through walls and the babies were going through portals and it does become a logical mess
