    1 thought on “Fire Ice

    1. 4 sterren voor dit boek. Eindelijk weer eens een Cussler boek dat mij kon bekoren. Het gezin van de laatste tsaar van Rusland wordt op brutale wijze vermoord. Een Russische miljardair is uit op de heerschappij over Rusland en de verzwakking van de Verenigde Staten. De diefstal van een Amerikaans onderzoeksonderzeeƫr, de moord op de bemanning van een ander onderzoeksschip. Het plan om methaanhydraat te gebruiken om tsunamis te laten ontstaan.Dit en meer zijn de ingrediƫnten van dit spannende bo [...]

    2. I really like this book. this the third in the series and the third one I read. It kept my attention and the plot was good. I will read the next one in a few weeks.

    3. Clive Cussler is indeed the Grand-master of Adventure. His books the literary equivalent of a big Hollywood action blockbuster. Fire Ice follows another heroic adventure of the NUMA team led by Kurt Austin against the mysterious Russian Cossack forces that aim to destroy the United States using a sinister underwater weapon. Page after page is filled with adrenaline pumping action, cheesy humor and Cussler's detailed description of submarines, yachts and everything that moves on, under or over se [...]

    4. This was my first book by Clive Cussler and it won't be my last. I really enjoyed this novel. Adventure, mystery and shootouts! Mr. Cussler throws in some historical facts which I thought made for a great story line. Is it all fact, hell no, but nowhere in the write up did he say it was. Overall, great read. Can't wait to start another of his books.

    5. The brutal Killing of the last Tsar Nicholas and his innocent family of The Russian Empire The search for the coveted crown of Ivan the terrible by a self proclaimed heir to the Romanov dynasty at the collapse of the new Russian government Quite a thriller

    6. I like the NUMA series, as well as its cousin, the Dirk Pitt series. Both of them, however, are more Bro-mance than real mystery. And, they certainly have an environmentalist agenda. Each novel speaks to a specific environmental issue. But, they are fun reading, and the characters are well-written.

    7. Fire Ice dishes out the usual Cussler and co-author Kemprecos NUMA Files globetrotting fare, with tsunamis, yachts, Cossacks, Old Ironsides, and a megalomaniacal billionaire villain obsessed with world domination as ingredients. Funny how the megalomaniacal villains in adventure stories like this are billionaires. The villain here is Russian and is stuffing the pockets of Washington, DC. Uncanny foreshadowing to current events? Or so predictable it had to happen in real life sooner or later? Tak [...]

    8. I have not finished the book completely yet. But, so far it's really entertaining. The amount of action that the book has is really unbelievable. Every page you move on to, there more action and adventure waiting there for you. The only problem is, that the book has a very confusing plot. Some parts of the book are hard to understand. So I have it a 4 out of 5 stars.

    9. Another passable entry in the first Clive Cussler/NUMA/Dirk Pitt secondary series.One thing you can tell about these books when compared to the Dirk Pitt novels written by Cussler is the expansiveness of the storytelling. These books are more compact, presenting a smaller cast. They're also-rans at the multi-plex, airing opposite the blockbusters.

    10. Another Numa adventure and for those who love Clive Cussler, they won't be disappointed. I didn't really get caught up in it.

    11. This one not as good for me as others of this series. One crazy killer trying to become the czar of Russia. What a convoluted trip it was until he wasn't. Lots of action and heroic deeds.

    12. This book was given to my home library by my uncle and aunt who passed it on after reading it. They know I enjoy books by Clive Cussler. This was the first Kurt Austin novel I read. I enjoy these adventure stories and the wise-cracking heroes.

    13. Kirk is always thrawrtin danger like Juan and Isaac, just under the disguise of NUMA. Nice to be back on the water

    14. A Russian billionaire is out to take over Russia and destroy the United States in the process. He steals an American research submarine and kills the crew on another research vessel. His plan calls for the use of methane hydrate to cause tsunami along the eastern coast of the United States.

    15. Dit boek is al wat ouder, maar heeft niets aan spanning ingeboet. Eerst dacht ik, een Clive Cussler, zou dat wel wat voor mij zijn? Maar dat was het dus wel. Ik vond hem spannend, goed afgezet in de tijd en voldoende van de Russische geschiedenis verwerkt in het verhaal, verweven met technische nautische kennis. Het levert een onwaarschijnlijk maar goed in elkaar gezet verhaal op. Die heb ik ook met plezier gelezen. Het boek blijkt deel drie in de serie te zijn over Kurt Austin. Dat wist ik bij [...]

    16. Clive Cussler must have been watching the Discovery Channel on cable television and came up with a new idea for a story. Originally aired in 2000, this cable show presented a documentary on the cataclysmic effects of an undersea earthquake off the eastern seaboard of the United States. Interviewees theorized what would happen to the coast should such a natural disaster occur, citing historical proof of similar events several millennia in the past.But if Kurt Austin were involved in such a theory [...]

    17. In 1918 Odessa Russia, the Czars family flees persecution from the Bolsheviks. The family perishes in a ship while escaping through the Black Sea, but one of the daughters survives and leaves the possibility for descendants. The villain of this adventure is a mining tycoon named Mikhail Razov who claims to be descended from the Romanovs and his henchmen Boris (descended from Rasputin). Razov hopes to claim world dominance by creating a series of tsunamis using an unstable methane hydrate compoun [...]

    18. #3 in the Kurt Austin, NUMA series. Third novel by author Clive Cussler co-written by Paul Kemprecos.Kurt Austin, NUMA series - The NUMA research vessel Argo is in the Black Sea for a PR jaunt when Austin spots the overdue TV crew being chased down an island beach by mounted Cossacks. Austin learns from his old KGB Cold War adversary Vladimir Petrov that the island is a mothballed submarine base commandeered by paranoid mobster Mikhail Razov (employer of the Cossacks), a billionaire who built At [...]

    19. I love how Clive Cussler's books take me on an adventure to different places around the world, some of which I have travelled to, some which are on my bucketlist to see. True escapism at its best. The NUMA files have such fascinating plots, and this one especially, concerning the fall of the Romanov family, the traditional cossack armies and the crown of Ivan the Terrible, was truly mindblowing. The interplay between the various characters is witty and self-assuring, in the sense that each chara [...]

    20. I found this book to be horribly unrealistic in every aspect. The dialog was corny, without an original phrase used by any character. I could perhaps forgive one character who is sarcastic and teasing all the time, but nearly every dialog exchange was full of cliches and sarcasm. And when the characters were being serious, they were melodramatic. There were too many coincidences which inplausibly dragged the plot along. Finally, the backdrop against the legend of Imperial Russia and the modern c [...]

    21. I enjoyed this book about the most of all the Clive Cussler books that I have read. The main character, Kurt Austin, was more likeable than Dirk Putt, still confident, but not quite as cocky. In this adventure, Austin has to stop some evil Russians from creating tsunamis that would wipe out major cities in the U.S. and create more global warming that would help Russia and make the U.S. like a dust bowl. Of course plenty of action and fighting ensued, but Austin managed to kill the bad guys, save [...]

    22. For a Clive Cussler book, this was a very pedestrian story. In Fire Ice" Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala must team up with Paul Gamay to battle Russian bad guys. The head of the Russian gang, Razov is out for world domination. Admiral James Sandecker's warriors at NUMA must go out and twart the Russian bad guy. Story just dragged along far too slow. The ending was expected and not very good.Of all of the Cussler books I've read this one has disappointed me the most. All hard line Cussler fans will re [...]
