January 1937. Jack Miller has just about run out of options. His shoes have worn through, he can't afford to heat his rented room in Tooting, and he longs to use his training as a specialist wireless operator instead of working in his dead-end job. When he is given the chance to join an arctic expedition, as communications expert, by a group of elite Oxbridge graduates, he brushes off his apprehensions and convinces himself to join them.

As the young men set sail from a gloomy Britain on the verge of war, Jack feels the overwhelming excitement of not knowing what lies ahead. Little can he imagine the horrors that await him in their destination, Gruhuken, a place that cannot escape the savage echo of its past.

    " I'd have liked 50 more pages. Loved it but the end felt rushed, the anxieties and anticipation vanished too quick. "

    " A ghost story told in journal format by a 1930s young man embarking on an arctic expedition. After a slow start the action took off and I became engrossed in this creepy, well told tale. "

    " A quality ghost story, very enjoyable. You can't help but feel the cabin fever of the protagonist! Nice tension maintained throughout, and while the resolution hiccups a little, otherwise very creepy and well-written. A bit like a cross between The English Patient and the Thing. "

    " This book has made me want to visit the Arctic, it sounds like another world. A fantastic ghost story, I couldn't put it down "

About the Author
Author Michelle Paver

Michelle Paver was born in central Africa but went to England as a child. After earning a degree in biochemistry from Oxford University, she became a partner in a London law firm. She eventually gave that up to write full-time. The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series came from Michelle’s lifelong passions for animals, anthropology, and the distant past—as well as an encounter with a large bear in a remote valley in Southern California. To research the books, she has traveled to Finland, Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Arctic Canada, and the Carpathian Mountains. She has slept on reindeer skins, swum with wild killer whales, and gotten nose to nose with polar bears—and, of course, wolves. The first four books have been made into widely acclaimed audiobooks, read by Ian McKellen.
