Bundle up and get your cup of hot cocoa…it’s going to be a chilly trip to the Arctic Circle!
Val is a linguistics expert currently teaching at University level. She just received a life-changing call that a girl has literally been thawed out of a piece of ice in the frozen Arctic expanse. It’s impossible to determine how long she’d been entombed in ice. What is certain…she is most certainly alive! And talking. But no one can figure out what language. The lead researcher requests Val’s assistance to aid in assessing this very foreign speech. But there’s a major complication. It’s the same place her twin brother died under curious circumstances. Perhaps she can do double duty and find some closure while also assisting with this most fascinating discovery.
I loved the interactions between Val and the girl as she tries to gain her trust and learn to communicate.
This is the second book I’ve read by this author. Her previous, Into the Jungle had us venturing deep into the Bolivian jungle. Erica Ferencik adds a unique twist by including interesting facts about the global region her stories take place. Here, we’re venturing as far north as humanly possible.
With the added details she provides, I felt I was right there next to Val. The bitter cold, the stark vastness of the surroundings.
My bags are packed and passport in hand. I’m ready for my next adventure. Where are you taking us next, Ms. Ferencik?
