Publisher's Summary

In the Barrens, a vast wilderness in northern Canada bordering the Arctic Circle, night consumes every hour of the winter. Humans are scarce; ferocious predators roam freely. Locals say spirits do, too.
Rookie cop Tana Larsson doesn't mind the dark and quiet. Five months pregnant and hoping to escape the mistakes of her past, she takes a post in Twin Rivers, population 320. Maybe here she can find peace and community for her child.
But with her superior out of commission, Tana becomes the sole police officer in 17,500 square miles. One bitter night, she gets a call about the fatal wolf mauling of two students, and the only way to reach the remote scene is to enlist the help of the arrogant, irritatingly handsome Cameron "Crash" O'Halloran, a local bush pilot with a shady reputation for smuggling and a past cloaked in shadow.
When the macabre scene they uncover suggests violence much more sinister than animal, Tana must trust Crash if she wants to protect the town - and herself - from the evil that lurks in the frozen dark.

Horrible narration..

As of this writing there are 89 4 and 5 star reviews and I have no idea how that came to be. Raj (a man) and Selena (a woman) sound just exactly alike, and there's no emotions, no nothing from Cara Gee. I can see this happening years ago when the narrator simply read the book, BUT this is 2016, time for narrators to know they have to sound like men and women both or they're not really narrators. I can't listen to this woman, it's no wonder she has only 2 books to her credit and the other book only has 1 review and she gave the narrator 3 stars, she's terrible. It doesn't matter if this is a free listen and free read if you can't stand the narration. If you want to listen to a great book by Loreth Anne White get The Slow Burn of Silence or In The Waning Light. You won't be disappointed with the narration. I left 3 stars for Overall and Story because I know it was probably a good book and I wanted to be fair to the author. Sorry, Ms. White.

excellent

This book was totally engrossing right from the start. I was annoyed with the performers voice at first then realized later on in the book that hers was the best voice for this character. I loved the storyline and the transformation of each character.
