Beneath


Read by Jeremy Robinson

(4.5 stars; 515 reviews)

Three thousand years after a chunk of iron the size of Khufu’s pyramid collides with Europa, Jupiter’s sixth moon, an asteroid borne of the collision crashes into Earth’s Arctic ice shelf carrying extraterrestrial microbial life. The first man to come into contact with the microbes hears voices—and then dies.

After determining the meteorite originated from Europa, the Global Exploratory Corporation sends oceanographer and biologist, Kathy Connelly, and her crew to the moon aboard the Surveyor, an experimental spacecraft. They are charged with the task of melting through miles of ice to the hidden ocean beneath, where the search for alien microorganisms begins. But a startling discovery awaits them on the surface of Europa.

Life.

Vast fields of red, plant-like organisms fill the cracks crisscrossing the moon’s surface, surviving on nutrients welling up from the waters below. Intoxicated by thoughts of what might lie beneath, Connelly and her crew activate the Thermal Exploratory System and melt through the ice—toward a world that does not want to be found, toward a force that will do anything to make sure they never leave.

They search for life. They find death.

PRAISE FOR BENEATH:

"Here's a near-future space adventure that's as frightening as it is smart. Jeremy Robinson's BENEATH is packed with believable tech, a page-turning story and an alien intelligence so creepy, you'll pray NASA never makes it past the moon."
--J.C. Hutchins, author of PERSONAL EFFECTS: DARK ART and 7th SON: DESCENT

"Jeremy Robinson hits his stride in BENEATH. His story-telling is as tight as ever, delivering thrills that raise the heart rate and science detail that gets the mind cranking just has hard. An evocative blend of Crichton and Clarke, BENEATH is destined to become an instant new media classic."
--Phil Rossi, Best Selling author of CRESCENT, HARVEY, and EDEN

"Isolation, cold, and the unknown: Like The Thing, Into the Void taps into those fears, and a couple more we never know we had. Robinson strips away all that we hold dear, sends us into the deep dark, and dares us to make our way out of it."
--Mur Lafferty, author of PLAYING FOR KEEPS and award-winning podcaster of I SHOULD BE WRITING and the HEAVEN series

“Robinson grabbed my attention in the first chapter, and kept hold of it. BENEATH isn’t your run of the mill way distant future fantasy sci-fi. It reads like its real, like it could happen today…but we hope and pray it doesn’t.”
--Basil Sands, author of 65 BELOW and FAITHFUL WARRIOR

"Masterful Craftsmanship...a chilling tale that finally answers the question: Are we alone?"
--thenovelblog.com

Jeremy, thanks for presenting your work in this format, for sticking to a consistent release schedule and springing for professional narration. Jeff Kafer, another great job. For all the simplification of science and situation, this was still an engaging story. I could quibble about dialog, editing etc, but the bottom ...

Hi Jeremy Firstly I want to say, thank you for an excellent book. I really enjoyed it. And while I realize it is fiction, and don't have a problem with fictional technology, I think I found a glaring mistake where you failed to adhere to the technology you created. *****SPOILER ...

I just finished this book but would have to agree with several of the commenter's here, I really had to suspend my disbelief to an unreasonable level. Sure aliens on Europa, no problem, spaceship full of scientists there no problem. The problems are with the way the scientists behave, regularly ...

Thanks Rosanna. Appreciate the support. To others, please remember that this is FREE. Is this my best book? No. Those are published by Thomas Dunne, in hard cover, with an editor. This is an older book of mine and was put out, at my expense (not the listener's), because a ...

Good Stuff


(5 stars)

IMO this is a great book and well read. Thank you SO much for taking the time and effort to put your books on here for FREE. It really is appreciated!

Sci-fi-fun!


(5 stars)

I have no idea what the other reviewers are talking about when they rate this story low and claim it boring or hard to believe. The author does a wonderful job with the pace and setting of this thrilling adventure. Jules Verne meets Jupiter in this story and I loved every chapter. Well read by narrator too. I'll be listening to this one again!

Annoying interuptions


(3 stars)

Could really do without the author advertising stuff in between EVERY chapter. It's incredibly annoying and completely ruins the immersion. The story itself is good, but I was almost put off by the constant interruptions. Please don't do this with your future audio books! This is why I deducted 2 stars from my rating.

I was not disappointed. I loved this book. It had just the right blend of science and fiction and fantasy and thrills to keep me wanting more. I think that Jeremy Robinson does such a great job at characterization and interweaving fantasy with reality..... that some people forget about the ...
