What is the strange red entwined circle he sees in the ice? Where is his dog trying to lead him? Thea has never seen the sun. Her people, suspected of witchcraft and driven almost to extinction, have retreated to a secret world they've built deep within an arctic glacier. As Thea dreams of a way back to the surface, Peter's search for answers takes him to her hidden world. And together they unravel a past that reveals a surprising connection
