Publisher's Summary

Badly battered by an apocalyptic storm, the crew of the Arctic Promise find themselves in increasingly dire circumstances as they sail blindly into unfamiliar waters and an ominously thickening fog. Without functioning navigation or communication equipment, they are lost and completely alone. One by one the men fall prey to a mysterious illness. Deckhand Noah Cabot is the only person unaffected by the strange force plaguing the ship and her crew, which does little to ease their growing distrust of him.
Dismissing Noah's warnings of worsening conditions, the captain of the ship presses on until the sea freezes into ice and they can go no farther. When the men are ordered overboard in an attempt to break the ship free by hand, the fog clears, revealing a faint shape in the distance that may or may not be their destination. Noah leads the last of the able-bodied crew on a journey across the ice and into an uncertain future where they must fight for their lives against the elements, the ghosts of the past, and, ultimately, themselves.

Odd But Compelling

This is an untidy story more in the paranormal fantasy realm than adventure. I think I was expecting more of the latter than the former. There is suspense and some action but there’s also a lot of repetition that should have been edited out that made the story longer than necessary. The plot is unique and held my interest though the telling wasn't as crisp as it could have been. The narration was fine.

Expert writing - Developed Characters - Scary

This is so well written, it's refreshing. Don't know anything about the author, but he's good. The narration is wonderful. Touching in parts, very scary in others. Human nature at its best and worst. Left me with some plot questions but that didn't seem to matter in the end. Wonderful look at the many facets of each life and the mystery of our existence. Going to go see if MacLeod has anything else out there.

Holiday of a lifetime plus book of a lifetime!

I downloaded this just before trip to see family in New Zealand. The holiday been amazing and this book has just added value to a lazy 2 days. It strikes me as a cross between Stephen King's The Shining and John Carpenter's The Thing. Very clever, suspenseful and with not a little philosophy about a meaningful life. The characters came across well especially towards the climax and the setting well researched and believable. The narrator is also extremely good. Managed to get the tension across with the right pace and emphasis. All in all one of the best listens I have had.
