There was a sharp intake of breath and then Dr. Tatyana Mishkin continued. As she talked, her eyes rested on General Westerland. "Let's assume for a moment that the gray mass beneath the ice is responsible for the energy field Dr. Donovan and his team witnessed. If Dr. Donovan and Dr. Applegate are correct in their assumptions, and I personally think they are, you have no idea what you're up against."

Westerland appeared annoyed by her remark. "You've made it abundantly clear that they are more intelligent than us, but what's your point?"

Tatyana's cheeks flushed. "What's my point you ask? I'll tell you what my point is, General. Our sun is just one star in a galaxy of a thousand billion stars. Most are larger and contain more energy . . . yet our sun spews out a force that's obviously beyond your comprehension. In one-ten millionth of a second it delivers an amount of energy equivalent to all the nuclear bombs in the world. Do the math, General. Multiply that by about a billion times. That's how much energy that thing could have at its disposal. I don't know about you, but that scares the bejesus out of me!"

About this Book

Dr. Rick Donovan, an astrophysicist, leads a group of American scientists on a secret mission to Antarctica after a roving spy satellite spots a monolithic gray mass five miles long and one mile wide in a glacier's bowels.

Upon their arrival, Donovan soon discovers this anomaly entrenched in the glacier is capable of creating enormous amounts of energy—power strong enough to form a vortex that picks up their three-ton vehicle in its maws. Shaken to the core, but determined to find out what's inside the glacier, he and his team board a nuclear submarine to burrow through the ice. Donovan discovers that a life form of superior intelligence inhabits the gray mass.

To complicate their mission, a Russian nuclear submarine with the same goal in mind enters the area; unfortunately, the captain has an itchy trigger finger. In order to complete their objective, not only must they confront the Russians, but they must also figure out a way to make contact with the alien life form who's made it perfectly clear it wants to be left alone. Donovan and his team soon realize they'll have to pay a steep price both personally and professionally.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

In Michael Cole's eleventh novel, Pandora, a temblor shears off a section of ice from the largest glacier in Antarctica and partially exposes a monolithic gray mass. NASA assigns astrobiologist Dr. Rick Donovan to head a team of scientists to visit the site.

It's not long before a magnetic vortex resembling a spinning storm cloud rises out of the glacier and swallows a six-ton vehicle they were using for transportation. Convinced that a connection exists between the vortex and the gray mass, Donovan and his team agree to board a nuclear submarine. Their objective? Burrow through the ice to the lake so more information can be obtained. The closer they get, the more convinced they are that the gray mass is a starship and that a life form on board is cautioning them not to come any closer. Upon entering the lake, they discover a Typhoon-class Russian submarine is also present. The captain warns the Americans if they don't leave, he'll blow them out of the water.

How this science fiction tale plays out makes for a spellbinding tale you won't soon forget.

Cole has been fascinated with space and space exploration for as long as he can remember. Although Pandora is fiction, he says perhaps someday we, too, will encounter an alien life form that will come to Earth in a starship capable of exceeding the speed of light. And if it does, he prays to God it won't be evil.

Pandora was published by Foremost Press. It can be ordered through local bookstores and at ForemostPress.com, and at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com.
