Antarctica

#Authorsonlocation – L A Larkin treks to the setting of Devour

In 2012 a British expedition to Antarctica attempted to drill through three kilometres of ice to reach the subterranean Lake Ellsworth. they were hoping to find new life forms and a host of other things. This drilling experiment was set to reveal a new stage in the search for scientific breakthroughs and there was a lot riding on it.

Lake Ellsworth is a subglacial lake located in West Antarctica under approximately 3.4 km of ice. It is approximately 10 km long and is estimated to be 150 m in depth. The lake is named after the American explorer Lincoln Ellsworth.

The journey in the book might jump from the Antarctica to Kabul to London and the Nevada desert and back again but the main setting and the thrill of the chase is definately the most fragile and frozen landscape on earth
