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


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.


Exciting and frightening book concerning digging up a frozen prehistoric creature . . . which maybe, just maybe, should have been left exactly where it was. Terror, scientists, genetics, a fully alive and aware-angry-very hungry-very large animal, greedy and evil humans wanting what was "found" inside the creature . . . are a few of the delights "Raising the Past" has brought to light.I enjoyed the action, and actually felt sorry for the unearthed being. Most characters were very well written and fun to travel alongside for a time.Thrilling scenes, munchy-crunchies, and beautiful places for your enjoyment!!!Have Fun!Great read Jeremy Robinson :)


A quick read. Loaded with cliches and pretty predictable. I got through a third of it before putting it down.


Really interesting Fast paces thriller.


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.


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."

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.


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.

Not my favorite by Robinson but a fun read nonetheless!

Not the best from Jeremy Robinson

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!


Wasn't one of his best books, but it was enjoyable.

Chris Wiegman

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.


Gah! So disappointed...like the last Robinson book I read I was soooo into the story. It was shaping up to be a potential 5 star book for me. Then the final 75 pages or so just ruined it. The plot got ridiculous, the dialogue took a dump, and I found myself going from treasuring every sentence to skimming to get to through the painful end. Not to mention there were an amazing amount of inexcusable typos for a book that was re-edited to be called The Origins edition. Example? Chapter 3 introduces us to Eddy, the main character, and the title of the chapter is spelled "Edyy". Chapter 9 apparently doesn't exist and instead I had two chapter tens. Jeremy...how do you release something that you put your hard work into and allow it to contain so many errors? Maybe the author should relaunch these titles again for a third time with all the mistakes fixed...and while you're at it, change the ending completely. :). I'm going to give this author another shot though. The ideas and plot summaries of some of his other books sound too awesome to at least not take a gander....


I really enjoyed this story. It had a nice setting, believable and interesting characters. Plus the sci-fi element that you come to expect from Robinson. I enjoyed the underlined love story that ran throughout the story that was subtle, rather than in your face, like some stories. I definitely recommend giving this book a read.
