Antarktos Rising
(Origins, #4)
(Antarktos Saga #3.5)
by Jeremy Robinson (2007)

A phenomenon known as crustal displacement shifts the Earth’s crust, re-positioning continents and causing countless deaths. In the wake of the global catastrophe, the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions. But Antarctica, freshly thawed and blooming, has emerged as a new hope. Rather than wage a world war no nation can endure, the leading nations devise a competition, a race to the center of Antarctica, with the three victors dividing the continent.

The Last Hunter: Ascent parallels the events in Antarktos Rising.

Here Robinson mines just about all of the Bible’s Genesis myths to create monsters he has to overcome in a race to claim new ground. The mythology gets a bit over the top, but the action and the story drives things on to a familiar ending.
