I'm happy to see this book finding life as a television series, because it is a fantastic read. The book is a perfect mix of historical fiction (the doomed Franklin Expedition of 1945) and horror. I read it years ago and loved it. Dan Simmons has written a number of great books across multiple genres; I think this one is his best.
