Synopses & Reviews
Greeted with excited critical praise, this extraordinary novel-inspired by the true story of two ice ships that disappeared in the Arctic Circle during an 1845 expedition-swells with the heart-stopping suspense and heroic adventure that have won Dan Simmons praise as "a writer who not only makes big promises but keeps them" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). The Terror chills readers to the core.
"Brutal, relentless, yet oddly uplifting, The Terror is a masterfully chilling work." Entertainment Weekly
"In the hands of a lesser writer than Dan Simmons, The Terror might well have dissolved into a series of frigid days and three-dog nights. But Simmons is too good a writer to ignore the real gold in his story-its beleaguered cast." Bookpage
"Guaranteed to have readers pulling their covers up to their noses, The Terror will make for a blood-freezing, bedtime read this winter-and any season thereafter." Pages
