This is the first of Clive Cussler’s NUMA series I’ve read and it was, in a word, fantastic. Kurt Austin is quite the hero; brave, tough, brilliant, and laid back. He works for NUMA, a government organization headed by Dirk Pitt, the hero of Raise The Titanic.

Polar shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. Clive Cussler is a collector of automobiles and, like his character Dirk Pitt, lives a life of adventure discovering and collecting things of historical significance. At the very least, it disorients birds and animals and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes, and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter, and if that happens-exit Earth.

Polar Shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. At its weakest, it disorients birds and animals and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter...Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift, but then his work disappeared, or so it was thought. Now, the charismatic leader of an anti-globalization group plans to use it to give the world's industrialized nations a small jolt, before reversing the shift back again. The only problem is, it can't be reversed. Once it starts, there is nothing anyone can do.Austin, Zavala and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team have certainly faced dire situations before, but never have they encountered anything like this. This time even they may be too late.

Nice book if you’re looking for an addictive one. It’s the kind of writing that gets you hooked to it until you’ve finished.

Gave it a 3 star because it’s clear that the author thinks mostly about giving the reader a good experience rather than reliable information about the themes he goes through. It gets somewhat annoying when you’re seeing wrong information in the book and start wondering what else could be wrong while reading it.

The two mistakes I found was that in the end there’s a scene in Rio de Janeiro where he says they speak Spanish instead of Portuguese (and there’s a big difference!) and another one was that he was talking about an aircraft’s rate of climb being slow of about 100ft/second - which is more than a rocket! That’d probably be 100ft/minute.

Other than that, a good addictive book. The plot is good and the characters are very well described. The theme of Polar Reversals is a fascinating one which could explain some of the meteorological changes we're experiencing! Wish the book could be more reliable though.

Really enjoyed, the character development and the scientific background. Very informative about the Polar shift. Such a concept to build a suspense story around. Includes the necessary megalomaniac, with plenty of money. And an intense desire to rule the world regardless of how many people get hurt. Good story, plenty of action.

Fascinating story, and a bit unnerving--this could conceivably happen! An eccentric genius has discovered how to cause a polar shift, but his work disappeared! Then an anti-globalization group shows up with plans to give the world a jolt. And once it starts, it cannot be reversed. It is up to Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA team to stop this from happening. Filled with quintessential Cussler imagination, there is never-ending action--another great read.

Good read. Nice to have an author who does not need swear words to write a good story. Proof reading can be a bit sharper.☺
