In the frigid waters off the Arctic Ocean, north of Greenland, the anti-whaling ship, The Sentinel, and her crew face off against a harpoon ship in search of Humpback whales. When the two ships collide and a suspicious explosion sends both ships to the bottom, the crews take refuge on what they think is a peninsula attached to the mainland, but is actually an island, recently freed from a glacial ice bridge.
Seeking shelter, the two opposing crews scour the island for resources. Instead, they find Viking artifacts, the preserved remains of an ancient structure and a stone totem warning of horrible creatures buried in the island’s caves. Facing violent, frigid storms, a hungry polar bear and the very real possibility that they are stranded without hope of rescue, Jane Harper leads the two crews, who must work together to defend themselves against an ancient evil upon which the modern stories of both zombies and vampires are based.
The original undead are awake and hungry. Beware the Draugar.
PRAISE FOR JEREMY BISHOP
“Jeremy Bishop takes a terrifying bite out of the zombie genre with TORMENT. This is a dark and devious post-apocalypting thrill-ride!” -Jonathan Maberry, NY Times Bestselling authr of PATIENT ZERO and ROT & RUIN
“TORMENT is a nightmarish descent through Armageddon. With barely a pause for breath, Bishop drags you out of normality, straight into the depths of a devastated post-apocalyptic landscape. Surreal and extraordinary locations, grotesque characters and outlandish events rise up from the devastated ashes of the familiar in this startlingly original horror novel. Dreamlike, disturbing and never predictable, once you start reading, you won’t want to put it down.” — David Moody, author of HATER, DOG BLOOD & the AUTUMN series.
“Jeremy Bishop explodes onto the zombie scene with TORMENT, a thought-provoking gorefest that turns the genre on its head. Both shocking and riveting, this is a debut novel that leaves the reader hungry for more.” — Steven Savile, #1 bestselling author of PRIMEVAL and SILVER
“With originality not seen since Fleischer’s Zombieland, Bishop’s debut novel will drag you kicking and screaming to the very bloody end. Look out Maberry … there’s a new sheriff in town.” — Thenovelblog.com
Jeremy Bishop, the #1 bestselling Amazon.com horror author is back, and his second novel, like his first, TORMENT, is full of fast-paced, run-for-your-life terror featuring a new take on the zombie (and vampire) genres. But this time, the story is tinged with sarcastic humor. As a result, THE SENTINEL is as funny as it is frightening. It is the Yin to TORMENT’S Yang.
