Descriere

Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy SEAL turned NCIS special agent, is sent to Aquarius, the world's only sub-oceanic research facility, located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller's fingers and tastes like blood.

Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing. No ships. No polluters.

No oxygen.

Instead, he finds a cloudless sky full of red particles dropping like snow and coating the ocean with a thick film that stretches to the horizon. When a dead blue whale collides with Aquarius, Miller begins a harrowing race to escape the affected area. Cut off from the rest of the world and surrounded by death, Miller makes his way to Miami, where he discovers just one survivor and the awful truth: the strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life-giving oxygen was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they're just getting started. Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. Millions are dead.

And if Miller can't track down and stop those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world is next.

    While it was an entertaining thriller most of the time, what repeatedly disgusted me was the way the killing of people (often non-US, civilian or children) is glorified. It also paints a boringly simplistic villain character. I think the author has a good start, but should work on reducing clichés. While Nazis are probably the prototypical cliché villain, that doesn’t have to mean you get away with lazy character design as an author.

    I will be open for more work of this author, because I think he has several basics right.

    Action packed and definitely a fun listen, with an archetypal good guy fighting the forces of evil. Lots of cliches. A bit annoying with low-effort technical details like "set the radio to transmit on all frequencies," and "loaded a fresh clip into his gun."

    I loved this book from the first page to the last.

    It is a rip-roaring, heart-pounding adventure and one of the best books I have read in recent times.

    If you love high adventure and haven't yet discovered Jeremy Robinson, do yourself a favor and read this.

    I can't wait to read more about Lincoln Miller, he is giving King and the Chess Team a run for the money.

    There's nothing quite like a fast paced thriller to keep the blood pumping. Well, except perhaps a double shot of espresso washing down a hit of speed after an eightball. I think reading might be easier on the heart, though.

    Jeremy Robinson's Secondworld has probably one of the more suspenseful openings I've read in a while. His hero, Lincoln Miller, is stuck underwater with no air left, only to surface and find no air to breath thanks to some mysterious red flakes soaking up the oxygen. If the lack of air wasn't bad enough, he's being hunted by a shark. Like I said, suspenseful.

    Of course, no air, poisonous red flakes falling from the sky, sharks, that's just the beginning of a thriller that sees skin-heads and a Nazi plot started back at the end of the Second World War, trying to purify the world. Welcome to Secondworld.

    Jeremy handles the plotting and pacing well, reminding me a lot of James Rollins. This book is a lot of fun and is very entertaining. My problem with the novel comes from some of the details that jarred me straight out of the story. To most readers this wouldn't be a problem, but for me it was. An example was a .38 Super revolver being referred to as a hand-cannon, something that is a stretch for a yoga master. These errors and the inclusion of an overly obvious ending - not to spoil it, but add cryogenics and Nazis together and what cliche do you get? - and I had to downgrade my score on what was an otherwise entertaining read.

    After a hiatus from reading I started on SecondWorld by Jeremy Robinson as it seemed like an intriguing book after all what's not to like about one man's fight against all odds, nazis coming back to take over the world and a phenomena that's killing everybody and everything, with a dash of science and history thrown in.Writing is of good quality and depth, author knows the subject on which he is writing so there's no glaring errors that distract from the story and overall just a good alternate history plot (did I mention nazis? frozen nazis no less!). Great book, enjoyed it, would read again.

    An apocalyptic thriller featuring a 2012 Nazi revival, the story moves at a rapid pace. There's more than enough thrills and spills, twists and unexpected turns to keep you turning pages. Its hard to put down.

    Based on my experiences with Jeremy Robinson’s SecondWorld, I have determined that he is not that great of a writer; however, he is a fairly decent storyteller. While the book arguable starts on chapter 3, and the writing is choppy and somewhat expositional, if you let yourself immerse into the story, you start to see something that is captivating, and at times, a page-turner.When red flakes begin to fall from the sky, draining the oxygen from the nearby atmosphere, NCIS agent Lincoln Miller, one of two survivors to make it out of Miami, is tasked by the President to find those people responsible and make them pay. It mixes thriller with conspiracy theory to give an edge-of-your-seat story complete with explosions, catastrophes, and even neo-Nazis.While not an example of literary greatness, SecondWorld is a clever story that can keep the reader engaged up until its very end. This book is recommended for those who like modern war novels or military thrillers, especially those that make liberal use of prime-time “science.” Something like 24, perhaps (though I must admit to having never actually watched the show).
