East Antarctica: The coldest, most desolate location on Earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a six thousand square mile liquid lake, over a thousand feet deep, left untouched for more than fifteen million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life forms long believed extinct--and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man. In this sequel to The Loch and prequel to MEG: Nightstalkers, New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten offers readers a crossover novel that combines characters from two of his most popular series. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The first book on the subject, this monograph examines the phenomenon of a huge sealed, freshwater lake, isolated from the rest of the world by kilometers' thick ice. The existence of melting ice at the bottom of the huge Vostok Lake has served as a model and inspired the team planning the Galileo space craft to gather data on the ice sheet of the Jupiterian moon Europa. The book provides interpretation of, and calculations for, stimulating factors for possible melting and a huge lake's existence at the bottom of the Martian ice sheets.

Ever since she was a young girl, Samantha Bloodworth had been fascinated by the exploits of the explorers who conquered the South Pole. After the death of her parents, she went to live with her Grandmama Lu, who taught Sam to believe in herself. Sam becomes a journalist and enjoys a career that allows her to report on the scientific achievements of the day. One day her magazine, the Digital Science Times, offers her an extraordinary adventure–one she is not sure she has the courage to take–to journey to Antarctica and report on the research being done there by a group of scientists at the coldest place on the planet. Vostok. Vostok sits atop an extraordinary geologic feature. Three thousand feet below the ice is a subterranean fresh water lake. The team assembled at Vostok are drilling into the lake, which has not been exposed to the earth’s atmosphere for millions of years. Their goal is to test the drilling equipment and protect the water in the lake from any contamination. Sam travels to Vostok with the help of the Air Force and Navy. During her travels she meets two extraordinary pilots named Malcom Dupcheck, (Navy), and Gevin Scott, (Air Force). Sam develops feelings for Gevin who unfortunately must spend most of his time in New Zealand while he waits for weather to clear. At Vostok an explosion causes the underground command station to collapse, trapping the scientists 3,000 feet under the ice. Sam had been higher up in the command station filing a story with her magazine using a very high tech little robot named PEDRO who is actually a robonaut – a unique type of robot designed for use in outer space and the rigors of Antarctica. PEDRO can only save the scientists using the station’s computer system which was fried during the volcanic activity. Now Sam and PEDRO must first try to reach the surface, then walk across Antarctica until they can get to a location where PEDRO can find an uplink and call for help. Malcolm Dupcheck flies to Vostok and discovers the base in ruin. Soon he and his crew are stranded. Dupcheck and his copilot Weasel set off on foot, following the path left by Sam and PEDRO through the snow. Malcolm and Weasel are lost in the storm trying to locate Sam. Together they must survive all the errors than Antarctica can throw at them.

It also makes clocks and watch movements for other watch brands. The Vostok Company was founded in 1942 when one of the Moscow watch-making plants of the First Moscow Watch Factory was evacuated to Chistopol, a small town located on the Kama River in Tatarstan. Only defense equipment was produced during the war years, but as soon as the war was over the company started making mechanical wrist watches. However, the Company did not begin using the "Vostok" brand name until the 1960s. *Presumable "Vostok" brand was named after the Vostok space program, which gave the initial advancement of the USSR in the Space race (as some others soviet watch brands, named to space topics in 1960s - Poljot and Raketa).

Francis Hamlin accepts an invitation to work at a research station in the most remote and inaccessible place in the world-Vostok Station, Antarctica. This adventure is supposed to give him an opportunity to participate in discovering something truly unique with far reaching implications to positively impact the entire outside world. But what they do discover there is something truly horrific. When people begin to die, the terrifying truth of their situation sets in. They are trapped with no way to escape. All flights are impossible during the brutal winter. No one gets in; no one gets out. As the already small group begins to dwindle, Hamlin realizes that all the research is for naught if they cannot figure out a way to endure this long, dark winter where death is lurking around every corner. Can they overcome the persistent, unexpected doom that stalks them all at Vostok Station?
