A Marine unit, accompanied by a science team, is deployed to investigate an iceberg larger than Manhattan that poses a threat of incalcuable scope as it flows against the current, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. And it's heading-aiming-for Hawaii. Their mission: to land on the floe itself, and do whatever it takes to disable the threat. But the mission turns out to be much more than expected when the threat becomes not the floe itself, but a prehistoric, predatory, species that puts every living creature in danger.

This type of story is the horror/science fictional version of the old dark house stories where a group of people are stranded (Sorry folks, the bridge is out, you’ll have to spend the night here) in some spooky mansion with a mysterious masked killer lurking behind the curtains or in a secret passage. Here the usual suspects are stuck on a big iceberg headed toward Hawaii. A team is sent in to investigate and they start disappearing. There are a lot of lovingly graphic descriptions of virtually the entire cast being killed off—eaten alive, torn apart, etc. It is all quite repetitive. I quickly learned that as soon as a character wandered off alone you could start skipping until you got past his/her inevitable demise (What’s that noise behind me, ahead of me, what’s that bad smell—exitus). The people are pretty much the usual stock characters going through their paces: military, scientists, the predictable businessman villain (not a spoiler, you’ll spot him from the get go). In fact, the word predictable sums the book up quite well.
