Returning to the Yukon with his love Sabine in an attempt to shed light on her mysterious past, Jack is accompanied by several werewolf pirates, and followed by their brutal ex-captain, Ghost. But that great, cold land has fallen under the shadow of a new, terrible threat –– great beasts that relish the taste of human blood. It is up to Jack, his friends, and the trail-hardened Callie King to confront the danger. But these monsters are terrible and powerful, and they are forced to join forces with the dreadful tree-spirit Lesya for any chance at surviving.
This final installment in the trilogy of adventures of the young Jack London is a masterpiece of tension and emotion. Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon have crafted a tale for readers of all ages, an action-packed, romantic, and suspenseful descent into the darkest desires of men and beasts and the hell that awaits them.
