Publisher Description

'A brilliant, massive combination of history and supernatural horror' STEPHEN KING

It was the most advanced scientific enterprise ever mounted and Sir John Franklin's 1845 expedition in search of the fabled North-West Passage had every expectation of triumph.

But for almost two years his ships HMS Terror and Erebus have been trapped in the Arctic ice. Supplies of fuel and food are running low. Scurvy, starvation and even madness begin to take their toll. And yet the real threat isn't from the constantly shifting, alien landscape, the flesh-numbing temperatures or being crushed by the unyielding, frozen ocean. No, the real threat is far more terrifying.

Because there is something out there in the frigid darkness. It stalks the ships and snatches men. It is a nameless thing and it has become the expedition's nemesis . . .

Based on actual events, this is the astonishing novel that inspired the chilling AMC Original TV series.

Amazingly good

This is the first Dan Simmons book I've read, but it is the first of many. Meticulously detailed, scary and completely immersive. Outstanding.
