WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)


Roman Morozov is serving hard time in a USSR Gulag labor camp. At least, he was. He escaped with two other men, Grigori and Sergei. All they have to do is cross hundreds of miles of frozen, Russian archipelago to earn their freedom.

But the most dangerous thing about their journey might not be the arctic tundra. They have more immediate things to worry about, like the murderous intent that comes with an empty belly. Or the rictus grin of the demonic thing that only Roman can see...
