Publisher's Summary

The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting. Nikolas has always liked art. You'd have thought that Ben and Nikolas would have learned that their romantic holidays inevitably end up as disasters. A short break on the polar ice sees them trapped in a nightmare of murder and deceit. Neither of them, however, foresees the long-term impact that endless winter has on their relationship. They return with a metaphorical darkness that threatens everything they have created together. Desperate and fearing for Nikolas' life, Ben makes a bargain with a surprising ally. For the first time, Nikolas meets an enemy more powerful than he is. But fortunately, not as sneaky...

Great story. Great narration.

Soooo. This book was decidedly unsettling for a couple of reasons. The fact that it inspired some intense emotions, is a reflection of the author's skill. I actually had flashbacks to blizzards on the prairie. Anyone who has had the misfortune of experiencing negative twenty degrees below zero Farenheit with blowing snow on a seemingly endless prairie with few landmarks, can recognize how well Wiltshire portrayed Ben and Nikolas' latest vacation destination. Shudder.

The next unsettling subject was the reality of how mental health, religion, and personal relationships connect. Sometimes they blend smoothly, and sometimes they can collide with disastrous results.

While some of the events in previous books of the series have been resolved, there are still a few unresolved issues, and more potential plot points are being unraveled. I find this a bit worrisome since there is only one more book left to read at this time.

This series is disturbing fun. It's a bit like reading about a chess game between fate and Nikolas with Ben as Nikolas' king, and Gary Furlong as the watcher narrating the game.

Disappointing after the previous brilliant books

The whole finding God thing was unnecessary and out of character, especially the thing he believed God told him to do (or not do). After the last book, I was looking forward to them being dark and twisted together, since Ben had bridged the gap between them. I adored both these characters through all the previous books and now I don't know what to think. I can't even say I'm angry with Ben at this point. I genuinely don't like him anymore.

Gary Furlong was brilliant as always, but this one left me with a sour taste. I hope Nik and Ben get back on track in the next one.

Discordant

This one didn’t work for me the way the others have. Nik & Ben have always had a weird & twisted relationship. In the other books this was weaved well through a variety of thrilling adventures.

This time, it was first half packed with mystery and suspense and the second half was just odd. I don’t know how to explain without spoilers - which I very seldom use in my reviews - so that’s below.

I did kind of like how it ended up and I’ll listen to the next book.

Narration:
Gary Furlong is amazing as always. Accents, personalities, emotions. It all sounds so effortless and like a full cast instead of one person. Loved his performance.


🛑 Stop here if you want spoiler free. 🛑

Spoilers:

Ben finds God. Whatever, I kind of get it when you almost lose someone you love and you’re bargaining with God to save them. But the whole, “God doesn’t want me to be gay” from Ben and for the entire second half of the book just didn’t work for me. Then Nik, who up until this point frequently denied being gay and hasn’t allowed an ounce of being publicly open about his relationship with Ben… is upset at Ben’s denouncement.

The pacing was slow, the storyline dragged, and the whole thing was just odd and out of character for both of them.

They did get back together and are now out to the world. So it’s not a cliffhanger.

Totally addicted!

I am complete addicted to this series. It is full of nuance and love and struggle. The characters in all their flaws. When you add the narration it’s probably one of a few Audio books I will register too. Worth every penny!

Utter Perfection

I cannot get enough of Ben and Nikolas..
John Wiltshire is an amazing writer taking me into the lives of Ben and Nik and their extended family….
The Polar Ice setting was magnificent, all the scenes at Dartmoor being trapped by the snow were also magnificent.
Angst and heartbreak then so,I’d love and understanding.
This audiobook narration by Gary Furlong is out of this world.

I wasn't expecting Ben to find God and purity

This is not a storyline I'm interested in. A warning about the topic change would have been appreciated.

The aothors imagination is taken to the extreme.

If you have reached volume 7, you know what I'm going to say about this addictive series. It is so easy to read and so well read.
What I didn't understand is that the book and audio are not synchronised. I had to listen or read

Fabulous series

I'm so glad I decided to listen to this series when it suggest by Isobel Starling. I love the Ben and Nikolas, and their family and friends. The narration by Gary Furlong is excellent.
