Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Excellent delivery....of a fairly average story..."

    I agree with the other reviewers, the delivery is excellent - the narrator even gets Northern Norwegian accents spot on!

    But sadly, the story was a little too formulaic for me, and didn't seem quite as good as I hoped. Each to their own!

    "Well written and well narrated"

    Historical horror/ghost story, no obvious anachronisms, really well done and very convincingly read. Well worth listening to if you fancy something like this.

    "Boring. Never went anywhere"

    Tedious. I was waiting for something to happen, a twist a turn a reveal. But nothing. Just a slow slog if a listen. I would not recommend.

    Story
    "CHILLING !"

    The story is incredibly gripping. It is dark and at times, terrifying. The detailed description of the setting is fantastic. A cold and creepy ghost story. Throughly enjoyed it.
