In the spirit of John Carpenter's The Thing and Jacob's Ladder comes Stranded -- a terrifying, icebound thriller where nothing is quite what it seems by Bracken MacLeod. Badly battered by an apocalyptic storm, the crew of the Arctic Promise find themselves in increasingly dire circumstances as they sail blindly into unfamiliar waters and an ominously thickening fog. Without functioning navigation or communication equipment, they are lost and completely alone. One by one, the men fall prey to a mysterious illness. Deckhand Noah Cabot is the only person unaffected by the strange force plaguing the ship and her crew, which does little to ease their growing distrust of him. Dismissing Noah's warnings of worsening conditions, the captain of the ship presses on until the sea freezes into ice and they can go no farther. When the men are ordered overboard in an attempt to break the ship free by hand, the fog clears, revealing a faint shape in the distance that may or may not be their destination. Noah leads the last of the able-bodied crew on a journey across the ice and into an uncertain future where they must fight for their lives against the elements, the ghosts of the past and, ultimately, themselves.

Book 5 in the Stranded Series. Winter temperatures in Alberta, Canada can drop as low as -30 to -40 C (-22 to -40 F) for weeks at a time. These temperatures are manageable in modern civilization. The odds of survival at these temperatures decrease when all modern conveniences such as furnaces and electricity are taken out of the equation. Such is the life many would face after an EMP. Mrs. Moore’s students had faced unsurmountable odds of getting home. Each and every teenager in the group had been forced to do and act well beyond their years to survive to this point. Unfortunately, their parents, grateful to have them back refuse to accept the changes in their children and attempt to force them back into the young roles their children had before the end of civilization. What they don’t understand is that it’s not possible to erase those changes. When the teen’s town is hit with a devastating virus, they take it upon themselves to travel first to the closest military encampment to find the medicine their loved ones so desperately need. Stone walled at every turn they make the hard decision to embark on an epic journey to a faraway city to search the ruins for help they need. Traveling through a Frozen wasteland, they not only have to fight the elements and other survivors but also the inner struggles and changes each one has to accept and live with. It’s not just the weather that has Frozen.
