by Deborah Jackson

The year is 2015. Deep within the Antarctic Ice Sheet a hotspot suddenly appears on satellite tracking. The US science team, sent from McMurdo Station to investigate, finds an icy graveyard. Minutes later, their transmission is cut off. The last sounds heard over the radio are their screams.

NASA lures volcanologist Erica Daniels to a conference in Houston by promising to consider her for their upcoming mission—establishing the first moon base. Instead, her archrival and ex-lover, David Marsh, gets the plum assignment, while she’s sent to Antarctica to lead a new team beneath the ice. An irritating British archaeologist and a brilliant Russian astrophysicist join her on a journey through unforgiving snowscapes and mysterious ice tunnels. They present her with extraordinary suggestions for the origin of the hotspot. Along the way, Erica unearths scientific marvels that might just prove her own theory. But why is the ice sheet littered with bodies? Is the activity under the ice the remnants of an ancient civilization or is there a more sinister explanation? To discover the truth Erica will have to join forces with the man she despises—a man who’s on the moon.

A Note From the Author

Dear Potential Reader,

Ice Tomb is a novel I wrote ten years ago. I attempted a rewrite, performed some minor surgery, but ultimately made few changes since other projects were consuming my time and imagination. It blends ROMANTIC elements with SCI-FI (both hard science and fantastical). Although several critics enjoyed the story, it has flaws—the product of an initial effort and a Hollywood-influenced imagination—which is why I've re-released it as a 99-cent "fun read" rather than serious, thought-provoking SF. Enjoy!

Top Pick

“Ice Tomb is set in the near future, and the science in the fiction is very plausible. A fast-paced story with plenty of twists, this book reads like a classic sci-fi tale. The characters are well drawn, the action plentiful and the outcome surprising.”

– RT BOOKclub Magazine

Editor’s Pick

“She may be a new kid on the science fiction block, but Ottawa writer Deborah Jackson could well rank up there one day with the likes of Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke.”

“Ice Tomb is surprising not just for its entirely believable plot and well-crafted suspense, but because it has all the earmarks of a tale written by a sci-fi master.”

– Mike Gillespie, The Ottawa Citizen
