AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Alex Hunter, code named Arcadian, wakes up with no knowledge of who he is, in the care of a woman he doesn't recognise, in a country not his own. But there is a calling deep within him, to return home to Black Mountain. The Appalachian's Black Mountain hosts a terrible legend. Only one elder remains to guard its long-forgotten secret. Some hikers are missing, and the rescue team sent to search for them has not returned. In nearby Ashville, Professor Matt Kearns is drawn into the mystery of an artefact recovered from the mountainside. A survivor is then found half-alive, covered in blood blood revealed to be not quite human. Alex must confront the horror that stalks the frozen mountain, and also the one haunting his very soul.' (Trove record)
