Journalist Michael Wilde - his world recently shattered by tragedy - hopes that a month-long assignment to the South Pole will give him a new lease on life. There, in the most inhospitable place on earth, he is simply looking to find solace...until, on a routine dive in to the polar sea, he unexpectedly finds something else entirely: a young man and woman, bound with chains and sealed forever in a block of ice. Beside them is a chest filled with a strange, and sinister, cargo.

Now, in a bleak but breathtaking world of shimmering icebergs, deep blue crevasses, and never-ending sun, Wilde must unravel the mystery of this doomed couple. Were they the innocent victims of fear and superstition - or were they something far darker?

His search will lead from the barracks and battlefields of the Crimean War to the unexplored depths of the Antarctic Ocean, from the ill-fated charge of the Light Brigade to an age-old curse that survives to this day.

As the ice around the murdered lovers begins to melt, Wilde will have to grapple with a miracle - or a nightmare - in the making. For what is dead, it turns out, may not be gone. And here, at the very end of the known world, there's nowhere to hide and no place left for the living to run. Download and start listening now!

    " so far it's slow to get into. good but too much extraneous description. i find myself reading and wanting to skip ahead to get to the meat of the story. Once i got into it, it was good. couldn't put it down b/c i wanted to find out more. "

    " I wanted to like this a lot more than I ended liking it. The whole story feels like it's building then never really seems to hit it's peak. If you are looking for a 'vampire' story, this isn't it. This novel is far more concerned with ice, fish and snow than exploring what it means to live forever. There are some beautiful moments and some truly delightful touches but they are all too few and far between. All you are left with is a VERY slow story about the South Pole and it's wildlife. It's well wrote but meandering, it's a story about passion that's passionless, it's a vampire story, about, well, fish. And finally, when the plot takes off, it ends. A huge dissapointment. From a writer who has wrote a book called 'The Rules Of Writing,' he certainly screwed up structure in this piece of work. Sometimes, less is more my friend. "

    " I was completely engrossed at the beginning...but a great start degenerated into vampires. Think Big Bang Theory meets Twilight without the adolescent sexual tension. "

    " I thought this was a very good book. I loved the love story between Eleanor and Sinclair "
