An ancient horror, the Tunit called the kurrshuq has escaped from its ice tomb and is about to begin its killing spree.
A handful of natives flee. Leaving behind their shaman who travels with one lone white man to the base located at Alaska's Federal Wilderness Zone, where a filming crew and a small military attachment are working to bring the creature to the public's eye.
But the creature has other, ancient, plans.
This book took me a while to really get into, about half way through it before I could find a real interest. But then Child hits you with a style that leaves you spellbound and hanging onto the edge of your seat waiting and wanting for more!
I was spellbound for the second-half!
Death happens. And it happens to several individuals. But the writer does not go into the "gory" details, for which I am thankful! [I do not like the blood and gore type of descriptives]. Child tastefully tells the story, getting the points across, without making us feel that we have a ringside seat to the carnage.
You bet ya!!
You won't want to put this down! I give this book five stars!
