Ice Station by Matthew Reilly

Ice Station by Matthew Reilly is one of the greatest  action thriller novel. This Novel has extra load of action that a usual thriller novel. This is the first Matthew Reilly novel I read. I Thought it must be some kind of science fiction novel since I saw story was about a Alien spaceship. But I was wrong I was reading a novel full of action which make to glue to the book till the end of story. Its more like those action movies. I have become a Matthew Reilly fan from that moment. this is not classic literature this is pure entertainment. Ice Station is the first book of  Matthew Reilly’s Scarecrow thriller novel series.  Area 7 and Scarecrow which are second and third books of Scarecrow thriller novel series are same as Ice Station.

After a team of American scientists at Wilkes Ice Station discover what seems to be a spaceship in a four-million-year-old cavern below the ice, two of the divers disappear while checking out the craft. Lt. Shane “Scarecrow” Schofield and his highly trained team of Marines respond to the scientists’ distress signal. By the time the leathernecks reach Wilkes, three days later, one of the scientists has killed another, six more members of the Wilkes team have disappeared in the ice cave and eight French scientists from a nearby station are for some reason at the U.S. base. Would the French government kill Americans to capture a frozen UFO? Probably: six of the French “scientists” turn out to be the members of the French special forces. From that discovery onward, this first novel offers nonstop thrills as Schofield and his team fight for their lives and for those of the remaining American scientists Against French and British commandos and a secret American spy group; against killer whales and strange aquatic mammals; and against time, for both the French and British commandos harbor “eraser” plans to wipe out all survivors in case of mission failure.

If you are just fan of Vince Flynn or Robert Ludlum type thriller fan, you might find Ice Station has way too much action than you might want. But for me that’s what makes this book better. in  Ice Station action tells you story rather than dialogs. Ice Station is absolutely non-stop action + action thriller its more like you are watching movie. I have seen some negative reviews about Matthew Reilly novels such as Ice Station but those guys miss the point. These are not Literature masterpieces, These books are for entertainment purpose not for collecting in person library.  If you want that kinda book you should try novels like War and Peace. Matthew Reilly‘s novels make people read books even those who think its boring to read books. My person opinion is you can’t find a better example about Action Thrillers than Matthew Reilly‘s Ice Station.

Temple – Matthew Reilly

Temple is another great Action/Thriller novel from Matthew Reilly. This another fast pace action novel with great complex action scenes. Shootings, fights, explosions and killings, start to end. Temple is one hellwa Thriller which will keep you glued to the novel till you finish reading it. You become a instant fan of author Matthew Reilly if you haven’t read his books before.

Story goes like – William Race, a mild-mannered professor, is impressed into the U.S. army on a bizarre mission: to retrieve a centuries-old Incan idol revered by a Peruvian Indian tribe. The idol, carved out of a meteorite, is the missing ingredient in a so-called “planet-killer,” a weapon long sought not only by the U.S. government, but also by a neo-Nazi group whose scientists, linguists, and anthropologists seem to be one step ahead of the Americans. Only Race can translate the legendary manuscript that holds the key to the idol’s location high in the Andes in a temple guarded by huge, man-eating panthers, on a moat seething with equally carnivorous crocodiles.

This books might have too much action and violence for some of you. I have seen people say the story is far fetched, over active. But if you love fast pace action thrillers, Temple is another good novel to read.
