About this book

FROM THE ICE. . . A mammoth, flash frozen in solid ice 10,000 years ago is brought to the surface by a team of scientists. An act of sabotage frees the giant from its icy tomb and reveals the secret held inside. OUT OF THE MAMMOTH. . . The body of an ancient woman, cloaked in furs, slides out of the mammoth's belly. But it is not the woman that holds the team's attention...it is the object she is clutching...a device created by an advanced civilization. THE HUNT IS ON. . . The device is accidentally activated, summoning forces who seek its destruction. It is the key to mankind's salvation and freedom from the men behind the curtain, pulling the strings and leading humanity towards destruction.

Reader's Thoughts


A team digs up a well-preserved Mammoth, inside it's belly, they find a ancient woman's body holding something unusual in her arms. This book has a lot of action and some surprising unexpected twists. The story sucks you in until the very last page. A very good read. My Favorite Quote: "But when I look into your eyes, I'm convinced of the alternative. Evil isn't everyhere. We just need to choose what's good."


This book has some really great reviews at Amazon.com. Based on the 5-star reviews and the premise about excavating a woolly mammoth, I went ahead and purchased the book, hoping it would really be a great adventure yarn -- especially since it was recommended by James Rollins. As I read the book, however, the story for me devolved into a comic-bookish sci-fi story complete with opposing sets of aliens! I believe the author was a comic book writer and I think this is very evident. I did enjoy the setup for the story and the first parts about the mammoth excavation. And the story does have a lot of action but I really can’t recommend it.

Another great adventure thriller from the master. Could not put it down!!! Action-packed, fast-paced and kinda scary, this is a winner!


Really interesting Fast paces thriller.

I've listened to Jeremy's books on podcasts in the past, my first "read" of one of his novels. Great premise and full of action but a lot of cliches in plot and action. Read this as a Kindle book and am not sure I like that the books can be re-written or corrected over time. Stephen King did the same with The Stand and in my opinion, ruined it by "updating" inconsistencies and making the story more modern. Writing is an art, editing is part of that art but after it is revealed to the public, it should be left on it's own merit. Of course, in this age of self publishing, what gets out to the public may need further editing. In the end, I do want to read more by him but will expect a little less from the story.

It kept me going with one of the more unusual story lines I've read in a while. I would have rated it higher but I felt that some of the twists were a little too overdone.


characters are not really well developed, action is really far fetched. If you received a deep cut in your leg from a large animal you probably wouldn't be running and jumping for long if it all.

Logan Weatherly

Another interesting story by Jeremy. He's takes the most obscure concepts and plots and makes an exciting and suspenseful story out of it. Well done. Look forward to.reading more.


I liked the first part of the novel, but the ending kind of lost it for me. I don't need my alien invasion stories to be about good an evil.

Dan Barbier

Very good action novel. Reminds me of the Chess team series. Maybe the Ferox could make an appearance against King and co. in a future novel.

Dan Shea

Another good book. Had a brisk pace and all of the main characters were people you cheered for (very important if you are going to be interested in the ending).I have to admit that I didn't see the multiple "flips" to the ending. It took some turns at the end that changed the emotional direction back and forth. A solid book. More of a 3.5 stars than 4, but that isn't an option and was better than a 3 star rating.

Randy Evans

I'm a big fan of Jeremy Robinson and give five stars to most of his books but I only gave four stars to this one. It kinda left me thinking about what I would read next before I was finished reading it. This I think was due more to what I read before this book rather then the book itself which was "The Montauk Monster" by Hunter Shea. "Raising the Past" just wasn't as good in my view and because of that I had to knock off a star. If I would had read something else before which wasn't as good I most likely would have given five stars, sorry Jeremy.

Russ Dumanovsky

Not my favorite by Robinson but a fun read nonetheless!


Pretty goodI admit, I wasn't too sure about this after the first third of the book. Took a while to get going, but the second half of the book was great.

Chris Fernandez

I really enjoyed it! Great characters in a very interesting scifi setting which explores some neat possibilities about our history. I'd definitely give it a Good Read!
