There are two worlds in this imaginative story. Narrator Richard Poe expertly portrays this action-adventure with a message, in which a viral infection threatens the world's population. Heroine Laura Byrd, caught in the blistering cold of Antarctica during a research mission, may be the only person who survives the pandemic. Her struggle against insurmountable odds is both pulse-pounding and heart-breaking. Most interesting is the world of the afterlife, where inhabitants live as long as they are remembered by someone here on Earth. The lyric description as rendered by Poe makes this a book more enjoyable to listen to than to read. R.O. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
