A mechanism buried since the beginning of time is about to alter the landscape of the future.

In Vancouver, an earth science firm announces the ability to replicate every known mineral on the planet.

In Switzerland, a seismologist notes a disconcerting anomaly seventy miles below the Earth's crust.

In Nepal, the world's highest mountain is growing.

Geophysicist James Von Kamburg leads a crack team of scientists to the Himalayas to decipher an escalating series of portentous signs: frozen glaciers are melting, plants spawn from rock, and leopards move in herds.

A mystical vision at a Buddhist monastery on the mountain forces Von Kamburg to consider science beyond anything imaginable, and to question the need for drastic action.

Jared Griffon, Von Kamburg's brilliant former student turned adversary, arrives in Nepal with no such scruples.

Everest is rising. A cataclysm begins.

Editorial Reviews

"Everest Rising is a tour-de-force- dazzling, thought-provoking, and packed with a kaleidoscope of brilliant images. Matt Kambic has produced a modern classic, certain to keep readers on the edge of their seats. His dramatic writing and keen story-telling skills are as potent as the secrets that burst forth from the book's pages." --Ken Gormley, New York Times bestselling author"Shades of Jurassic Park... Matt Kambic combines lean prose, vividly imagined characters, and a dramatic Himalayan setting to render a story that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping. If you care about the possibilities inherent in this Earth as much as the author does, you owe yourself this fast-paced yet philosophically astute read." --Ben Wecht, Forensic Science Educator and co-author, Cause of Death and Grave Secrets"Everest Rising is a compelling read from the very first page. The book is more than just a sci-fi thriller; it explores our relationships to others and to the earth itself. Questions spin in one's head after the final page-what is our responsibility to the earth? Can it be simply defined? I think the concept for the novel is brilliant." --Pete Niederberger, International Civil Engineer, Author, In My Fathers Steps"The plot led me on at a fast pace-a great thriller. The mix of science and philosophy worked. It also evoked memories of the Khumbu region, where I have traveled myself and seen the wonders of Everest. The author did a good job of revealing the character of the Nepalese in the story. I recommend this book." --Liz Wedderburn, PhD, Glasgow University, Faculty of Science
