Summary

Summary

An Off the Shelf Pick of Best Supernatural Thrillers

The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition’s leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice. But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape.

A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A brilliant, massive combination of history and supernatural horror.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author
The Terror is both dazzling history and a sparkling chiller.” People
“Brutal, relentless, yet oddly uplifting, The Terror is a masterfully chilling work.” Entertainment Weekly
“Simmons, an accomplished writer of horror and sci fi, is predictably adroit in his deployment of terror, but the greatest pleasure of the novel lies in the sharp and sympathetic portrayals of Captain Francis Crozier, who assumes command of the expedition after Franklin’s death, and Dr. Harry Goodsir, the mild yet determined ship’s physician.” New Yorker
“The best and most unusual historical novel I have read in years.” Boston Globe
The Terror makes some keen observations about man and nature, civilization and savagery.” San Francisco Chronicle
“First-rate historical fiction.” Oregon
