New York Times bestselling author Hampton Sides returns with a white-knuckle tale of polar exploration and survival in the Gilded Age In the late nineteenth century, people were obsessed by one of the last unmapped areas of the globe: the North Pole. No one knew what existed beyond the fortress of ice rimming the northern oceans, although theories abounded. The foremost cartographer in the world, a German named August Petermann, believed that warm currents sustained a verdant island at the top of the world. National glory would fall to whoever could plant his flag upon its shores. James Gordon Bennett, the eccentric and stupendously wealthy owner of The New York Herald, had recently captured the world's attention by dispatching Stanley to Africa to find Dr. Livingstone. Now he was keen to re-create that sensation on an even more epic scale. So he funded an official U.S. naval expedition to reach the Pole, choosing as its captain a young officer named George Washington De Long, who had gained fame for a rescue operation off the coast of Greenland. De Long led a team of 32 men deep into uncharted Arctic waters, carrying the aspirations of a young country burning to become a world power. On July 8, 1879, the USS Jeannette set sail from San Francisco to cheering crowds in the grip of "Arctic Fever." The ship sailed into uncharted seas, but soon was trapped in pack ice. Two years into the harrowing voyage, the hull was breached. Amid the rush of water and the shrieks of breaking wooden boards, the crew abandoned the ship. Less than an hour later, the Jeannette sank to the bottom,and the men found themselves marooned a thousand miles north of Siberia with only the barest supplies. Thus began their long march across the endless ice—a frozen hell in the most lonesome corner of the world. Facing everything from snow blindness and polar bears to ferocious storms and frosty labyrinths, the expedition battled madness and starvation as they desperately strove for survival. With twists and turns worthy of a thriller, In The Kingdom of Ice is a spellbinding tale of heroism and determination in the most unforgiving territory on Earth. Ebook edition includes over a dozen extra images

Falling in love with a woman you've never seen before isn't normal. However, for a man like Sky Pheris, this is only the tip of the iceberg. For one, he was born with the ability to see into the souls of others, with all of the often gruesome details. Adapting to these powers has led to him becoming quite the lonesome outcast. Even a loner must talk to someone, though, even if it's only over letters. Hence, via a winged mail service, Sky had been keeping contact with a princess named Solveig, from the Star Kingdom. And what man in his right mind wouldn't fall in love with a princess? Sky, having made up his mind to go and see Solveig in person, began what should've been a simple journey. It should've been just a normal trek across the three nearly-connected continents of Peleg, home of many forms of peoples and creatures. Indeed, it should've been. Meeting up with a pathetic priest, a gorgeous tavern-owner, and an overly curious scientist along the way have made life much more complicated for Sky. Together, they challenge his beliefs, reveal more about his unique powers, and make a romance that seems to be much more real than his written dream. Last but certainly not least, the people of Peleg are having to defend against mysterious, magical invaders. One of those invaders happens to have a focus on the Star Kingdom, the very same place where Sky wants to end his journey... THE SKY OF PELEG is the first book of a series that promises to intrigue and entertain any reader of fantasy.
