The synopsis of Arctic Rising reads:
Global warming has transformed the Earth, and it’s about to get even hotter. The Arctic Ice Cap has all but melted, and the international community is racing desperately to claim the massive amounts of oil beneath the newly accessible ocean.
Enter the Gaia Corporation. Its two founders have come up with a plan to roll back global warming. They plan to terraform Earth to save it from itself—but in doing so, they have created a superweapon the likes of which the world has never seen.
Anika Duncan is an airship pilot for the underfunded United Nations Polar Guard. She’s intent on capturing a smuggled nuclear weapon that has made it into the Polar Circle and bringing the smugglers to justice.
Anika finds herself caught up in a plot by a cabal of military agencies and corporations who want Gaia Corporation stopped. But when Gaia Corp loses control of their superweapon, it will be Anika who has to decide the future of the world.
You can read my review here. As I said in my review, I highly recommend Arctic Rising. Well-written, it will take you on an exhilarating, edge-of-your-seat adventure filled with just the right balance of nearly unbelievable and believable scenarios, whilst giving you a few laughs. Buckell manges to create just the right balance between thought-provoking ideas and pure, unadulterated fun.
I have 2 copies of this book to giveaway, courtesy of Tor Books.
