The book

1913. Dinners, Millet-Bass, and Napps—three explorers bound not by friendship, but by a dependence founded on survival—volunteer to leave their ship, the Kismet, and scout an uncharted and unknown island in the Antarctic, which Napps names “Everland.” While all three are enticed by the promise of adventure and reward, they are immortalized by the disastrous outcome of the expedition, their stories preserved for posterity. 2012. Brix, Jess, and Decker—three researchers with their own reasons for being so far from home—set out on a centenary field trip to survey the same island. Their equipment is more advanced than the previous group’s, and their purpose more scientific, but the harsh weather of Everland remains an unpredictable and deadly force: the adventure and the danger are inescapable. Under the harsh ultraviolet light of a sun which doesn’t set, and isolated from the world, they begin to echo the expedition of a hundred years ago. History, it seems, has a way of repeating itself—when theirs is written, what will it say?
