ORIGINS EDITION: This revised, expanded and re-edited edition of Beneath addresses the flaws exposed by reader reviews--flaws that have now been eradicated. This fresh version of the book is now cleaner and also clears up some of the confusion readers felt about the strange behavior of certain characters.DESCRIPTION:When evidence of microscopic life on Europa--Jupiter's sixth moon--is discovered, a crew of astronauts and scientists embark on a mission to discover its source. Led by oceanographer and biologist, Kathy Connelly, the crew is 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. Encouraged by the discovery of life on the surface, 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 an intelligence that will do anything to make sure they never leave.BENEATH takes all of the action, thrills, imagination and strange creatures that Jeremy Robinson is known for and puts them in the most extreme environment imaginable: the surface, and sub-ice ocean of a moon four hundred million miles away from Earth. 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, and EDEN"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"Masterful Craftsmanship...a chilling tale that finally answers the question: Are we alone?" --thenovelblog.comPRAISE FOR JEREMY ROBINSON"In Robinson's latest action fest, Jack Sigler, King of the Chess Team--a Delta Forces unit whose gonzo members take the names of chess pieces--tackles his most harrowing mission yet.Threshold elevates Robinson to the highest tier of over-the-top action authors and it delivers beyond the expectations even of his fans. The next Chess Team adventure cannot come fast enough."-- Booklist - Starred Review"In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." ...Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet." --Publishers Weekly"Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure." -- James Rollins"PULSE contains all of the danger, treachery, and action a reader could wish for."-- Steve Berry"Wildly imaginative and diabolical."-- Douglas Preston

Having achieved this great of advancements within only three years from now, I found the technology in Beneath to be
very surreal. If it had taken place during the 2040's, then yeah, I could've suspended my disbelief. None of this gets any
better as soon as the story started to take on more and more ''romantic'' and silly content. I felt like I was reading some
sort of chick book after about 40-50 percent of the book.
I expected a lot better from Beneath. When the author attempted to make the story more suspenseful, it didn't come
off as good as he'd probably had hoped.None of the cliffhangers in here made me even slightly excited. The book had
potential in the beginning, but then... Nah.
I am fascinated by Europa and had high hopes for this book.

Spoiler alert:

The idea of a symbiotic organism ‘being’ Europa was cool. The bioluminescent life in the ocean was described beautifully. I’m sorry, though, I can’t buy the idea that an organism that evolved completely separately from humans would have the capability to read and control our minds. It’s a gelatinous cucumber for goodness sake!

This has got to be the most stupid and undisciplined group of scientists ever. All of them should have been dead the first day. Connelly is a narcissist and a fraud.

The author seems to have a strange fascination with vomit. I don’t think I’ve read a book with so many scenes with vomit.
I took a chance on this book as I had tried to read Ragnarok & couldn't read more than a chapter it was so convoluted & confusing. My husband is a big Science fiction fan & enjoyed this previous book a lot more than myself. That said the author throws every cliche you ever have read about in Science fiction at the wall & makes it all work.

The plot is thoughtful, well written & as believable as Science Fiction can be! The characters at first seem poorly written as I think most scientists are more cautions then these people. All the characters are driven by psychological problems which, for traveling in outer space might not have been chosen to go, as you think there would be other scientists with less baggage. I did like that all the characters have time in the book to develop, correct their psychological problems, & be better scientists for the future.

My only complaint is the first few characters you meet are just that you meet them, one dies which no one seems to concerned about, & the companion to the man who dies spends the whole book being enslaved kind of a bit player sadly. His character never seems to develop he's just the "front" man.

It is true the ending I felt was flat & a let down. Obviously the author isn't planning a sequel.
I have been a steady reader of Jeremy Robinson for a few years now however I am only recently going back and reading some his "Origins" series...his first set of stand alone novels. Beneath is one of those novels and it is a very well done sci-fi space exploration novel. Set in the near future, a team of scientists and specialists make the long journey to the Jupiter moon of Europa in search of life beneath the ice. Certain events on Earth at the beginning of the novel lead them on this journey and also provide subtle clues to the underlying story line. What this team discovers is not only amazing but also life threatening and possibly even evil. There is plausible hard science mixed with the fantastic which, in my opinion, forms the basis of good, entertaining science fiction. I did find one of the main protagonists a bit annoying but I will not divulge which one for fear of tainting the future readers opinions. I was also slightly bothered by how professionals on a long distance space expedition could make such stupid decisions but that actually gets sorted out late in the novel...can someone say "mind control"! Overall however I found "Beneath" to be a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining read.
I enjoyed this book in many respects and almost gave it 5 stars for effort. But, in the end the execution just wasn't there. There were too many incongruities that jumped out at me: How could all the computers be erased without any record? Couldn't have happened. Convenient that there was no radio communication even though we have communicated with probes in that part of the solar system before and so large a ship likely would have had some communication satellite or probe of its own. How do little mammalian-like furry creatures live in no atmosphere yet have enough respiration to create the methane? Where does the energy for such a rich ecosystem come from since Jupiter only receives about 48 or 50 watts per square meter versus the 1200 to 1400 the Earth gets. The list goes on and on. I know it is fiction, but the fiction must be consistent with whatever world and physical laws the author creates. Many authors e.g. Tolkein or Zelazny, do great jobs of creating universes with some alternate laws, but playing fairly in the the sandboxes they build. Others such as Preston and Child obey our laws of physics and their stories are consistent yet they are as exciting (or more so) than this one. Again it was fun, but the author needs to play in the sandbox that is our universe if he plans to get in it.
ミ ★ PMS!! ★彡 LOL

I honestly liked all the characters in this story, the plot was brilliant, and the ending was perfection for me.

The whole sexual banter between Peterson and Connelly was fantastic! I couldn't help smiling every time they addressed one another! .

My favorite character was Hudson for some time. Poor thing, I just wanted to hug him when his greatest fear was in front of him. Funny and sad!

Then, Willard became my favorite because he was the only one who had some got-dang common sense! But he had to protect the dumbest smartest people ever!

Everything about this story worked!! I felt as though I was right there on this dark planet with them and loved that nothing turned out the way I thought it would! Great, great read!
