This is another brilliantly written story, sequel of Dead Energy, Cold Energy and Red Energy. If you thought that the story of our hero, an ex-CIA agent named Alex Cave, could not get better, you were completely wrong. The author keeps raising the bar, as if it was possible at all.
In this episode, Alex Cave is invited into a meeting in Iceland where a very strange geological event is observed. Asked to investigate, he goes with his best friend Ocana. In their way they meet other explorers that are also trying to see what is causing the observed behavior. All indications lead to the conclusion of the existence of a device that when active can control gravity on objects placed directly above it. But the bad guys beet them and get the device first. While trying to retrieve the object that was activated and was causing major problems, Alex's new family is kidnapped and now, besides having to recover the device and save the world, he also needs to save his family.
As usual, we can see that a lot of research was done by the author in order to create a very intelligent and believable plot.
You will read the book on the edge of your seat. Every turn of a page brings more excitement and it is guaranteed that you will be entertained for hours. It took me about eight hours to read the whole book.
I can hardly wait to read more Alex Cave's adventures! You definitely should try James Corkill's books. His intelligent plots are here to stay. I just wonder when his stories will attract someone in Hollywood so we will be able to enjoy all those actions in a big screen! ( )

Book description
Winner of the 2016 Best Indie Book Award in Science Fiction, this adventure takes place in the present-day northern hemisphere, where only geologist Alex Cave can humanity from annihilation from an artificial gravity device.

Alex receives an urgent message about an unusual geologic event in Iceland, and since he has dealt with strange phenomena in the past, he is put in charge of the investigation. He and his friend descend deep into the lava tube of an ancient volcano and discover a 180-million-year-old alien artifact of incredible power. Before he can take it to a safe location, it is stolen and activated and begins dragging satellites into the atmosphere and changing the orbit of the moon, but it won’t turn off. The tidal affect starts ripping apart shorelines around the world, causing devastating destruction to life and property, and Alex begins a desperate race to find the artifact and shut it down while also dealing with the kidnapping of his family.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, a massive emerald asteroid with a core of solid gold is on a collision course with Earth and will impact in six-days, killing every living thing on the planet. Can Alex find a way to save humanity from extinction?

An award-winning ride from this bestselling author, with thrilling situations and nail biting suspense.
