When a plane crash-lands in the arctic, eight young survivors step from the wreckage expecting to see nothing but ice and snow. Instead they find themselves lost in a strange jungle with no way to get home and little hope of rescue. Food is running out. Water is scarce. And the jungle is full of threats unlike anything the survivors have ever seen before—from razor-beaked shredder birds to carnivorous vines and much, much worse.

With danger at every turn, these eight kids must learn to work together to survive. But cliques and rivalries threaten to tear them apart. And not everyone will make it out of the jungle alive.

Johnathan McClain does just that, plunging listeners into a supernatural survival story, starting with a blow-by-blow account of a plane crash…McClain alters the tension, tempo, and emotions of each survivor to create a wholly believable group. This nonstop action fest will have listeners on the edges of their seats and craving the next installment.”


  • “The setting is effectively developed, with a threat level that’s high enough for effective suspense but not too gruesome, and the characters provide many points of entry for a broad spectrum of readers. A solid popcorn adventure.”
