The Secret Beneath the Ice

Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
When a thoughtship and its pilot finally reach Avani, they barely have a chance to marvel at its sapphire forests before they are ambushed by an enemy far beyond their understanding.

Tumbling down to the planet's surface, an ice-covered continent to the south is the only viable landing site. Lucky for them, what hides beneath may give them the chance to escape before isolation drives them mad. More

About Andrew M. Crusoe

Author. Traveller. Net-diver.

As a citizen of Earth, Andrew is primarily interested in growth, not only for himself, but for all.

His debut novel, The Truth Beyond the Sky, is the first book in the Epic of Aravinda, an award-nominated transcendental science fiction series that draws inspiration from around the globe, including eastern mythology and channeling. Since its release, the novel has garnered a multitude of glowing reviews, received write-ups on pro reviewer websites, and qualified for an ACX stipend, attracting prime narrator talent for the edition of the book, available now.

And thanks to reader support, the series continues now with The Island on the Edge of Forever, inspired heavily from Andrew's adventures following the strange trails of the Hawaiʻi jungle.

Wherever Andrew seems to be in time and space, it's important to him to keep the lines of communication open with his readers. You can reach him at:

Review by: humanitysdarkerside on May 02, 2013 :
The Secret Beneath the Ice is the story of the thoughtship Navika and its pilot Oonak and their journey through the Galaxy. In their attempt to avoid the Enemy they come upon the lovely blue world of Avani. They expect to touch down without problems due to the seeming lack of technological advance on the planet. They were wrong.

What we have here is a science fiction action tale/adventure. Oonak and Navika are interesting characters who are going to have to figure out what happened to them - a regular whodunit I guess. We have got 16 pages that I really want to find out the rest of the story to.

Andrew Crusoe writes well. 16 pages is not a lot to impart a story with but Crusoe manages just fine.

A really nice read. Well written with good imagination. I will surely look forward to "The Truth Beyond the Sky" and more in the "Aravinda" series.
