In Antarctica everyone can hear you scream!


An action adventure survival horror set in Antarctica

When a huge rift in the ice is discovered in Antarctica, NASA turns ones of its satellites upon it and discovers something strange. Confused by the readings, they call upon a group of scientists running tests on the ice shelf to investigate. When the scientists enter the ice rift to check out the anomaly on NASA's satellite scans, they discover something far more life threatening than the raging blizzard trapping them in the rift. They are unarmed and unprepared for the ensuing threat it poses them and mankind.

First Ice Rift Reviews

It Was Like Watching A Major Blockbuster Sci/Fi, Summer Movie. By Robin Lee AMAZON TOP 100 REVIEWER
"This should be a 5 star movie besides a full length novel...Then again the production house's would probably ruin it from it's original version ...You know, I have been reading supposedly bestsellers all Summer that were hyped up. From first time unknown authors, outrageous kindle prices, and these books just sucked or were subpar.... They want to use the word "Extravaganza" for their books, well I am using it for this spectacular story that is so visually descriptive, you could actually see the FX's ... It's action packed, humorous at times, emotional, super terrorizing, high tension, bloody battle, with gross Alien life forms from another world. So, for 2 days I was completely immersed in this cold Antarctic World. Think a mix of the old movies, "The Thing", "Alien" and "Predator"... If you love those films you will be dying to read this book because we are more advanced now that it's 2015.

Perfect research went into this book concerning conditions in the Antarctic, the blizzards, whiteouts, the Sno Cats, ice climbing, Base stations, and then there is "The Rift"... The writing was excellent or there was no way I could have related to the characters at all. Which after time spent, you easily become panic struck and breathless with them while trapped... You also have constant suspense around every corner because of all the unknowns. The ending is climatic, non-stop, with all the questions finally answered and a hint of maybe a part 2, though this story is final."


His writing is excellent and absorbs you into the story

"I've read several books by Ben Hammott and definitely consider myself to be a fan. His writing is excellent and absorbs you into the story, and this one is no different. I've always loved stories set in arctic and cold locations so I found myself engrossed in the story from the first few pages. There is action, intrigue, and a lot of twists and turns that I definitely wasn't expecting, and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes first contact stories with aliens that are done in a clever and unique way.

If you haven't picked up a Ben Hammott book before, then Ice Rift is a great place to start and I guarantee you'll have a new author to add to your list of must reads!"

First Feedback

"An exciting adrenaline rush that rarely lets you stop for a breather."

"The story quickly draws you in and refuses to let go until the last page. An excellent adventure set in Antarctica. 10/10."

"The imaginative mind of the author has produced a thrilling action adventure horror filled with atmosphere and claustrophobic locations. I dreaded each time the characters opened another door. Highly enjoyable read."

"Atmospheric locations and a cleverly written plot full of surprises. Richard was my favourite character. It was easy to imagine myself exploring the spacecraft with them. I liked the way the scientists had no weapons to defend themselves with, but had to rely on their wits to survive. It made a change from the usual gung-ho hero machinegun killing scenarios."

“Events in Ice Rift makes joining Ripley aboard the Nostromo seem like a pleasant thing to do.”

Solomon's Treasure 2


The spaceship entombed in the huge iceberg calved from the Pine Island Glacier drifts towards the warmer air and ocean temperatures of the South Atlantic. The race is on to claim the alien technology before the ice melts and releases its hold on the trapped alien vessel.

The mission: Board the spaceship and salvage as much alien technology as possible before the doomed vessel sinks to the bottom of the ocean.

The obstacles: A disintegrating iceberg, a collapsing spaceship, an armed Russian salvage force intent on claiming alien technology for themselves, an approaching storm, and the biggest obstacle of all—the spacecraft’s alien inhabitants.

The aliens have another mission—survival—and when opposing species clash, there can be only one victor.

Ice Rift - Salvage is the sequel to Ice Rift, which needs to be read first to gain the most enjoyment from the story.


Having stowed aboard the Russian vehicle transporting the alien weaponry salvaged from the doomed Antarctic spaceship, the surviving fragment of EV1L arrives at a secret underground complex in the remote wilderness of the Siberian tundra.

It will hide.

It will feed and grow.

It will breed.

When all is ready, EV1L and her hoard of vicious offspring will emerge from the facility and head for the nearest city to start their conquest of Earth.

When the Americans intercept a plea for help from the secret facility and learn of the alien menace, a crack team is rushed to Siberia. Their mission is to destroy the alien creatures before they escape.

If they fail, it could bring about the end of human civilization.
