Storming the Black Ice by Don Brown (Pacific Rim #3)

Book Description:  When British geologists discover the world's largest oil reserves under the desolate, icy tundra of Antarctica, Britain and Chile form a top-secret alliance for control of petroleum resources that will rival the economic power of OPEC. But when their discovery is uncovered by an Argentinean intelligence officer, a surprise-attack against a secret British outpost in Antarctica triggers a war. Britain and Chile are in a military standoff against Venezuela and Argentina, and when the war escalates, Britain asks America for help. For two couples separated by the battle, the outcome will be either love reunited or devastating heartbreak. For a young British boy living with his mother in London, his father's life is on the line. And for Pete Miranda, an American sub commander detailed on a special military assignment to his father's homeland of Chile, will his fate be a crushing death under the icy-cold waters of the Antarctic Ocean, or a future of life, light, and a second chance for love?
My Thoughts:  WOW!  What a read!  This is the first book I've had the privilege to read by Don Brown and it won't be my last.  Even though this is the third book in the Pacific Rim I wasn't lost.  But I do plan to go read books 1 & 2.
This read is filled with faith, military people and geologists, cold weather, diving in freezing waters and love.  What a mix!
This story had me on the edge of my seat at times.  It was a spell bounding read. I truly wondered at times if some of these things may have really happened, after all Mr. Brown is a former JAG officer!
The waters of Antarctic are described so well I could feel that hands of ice gripping my extremities.  Great imagery!
The romance in this read is light but yet gives the reader a sense of how much love there is between a man and a woman.
The whole story brings a great mixture of suspense and action together somewhat like a great salad that blends just the right amount of feta cheese with roasted turkey and balsamic dressing...delightful!
