Addressing a consistent set of themes—most revolving around characters who are in conflict with one another based on differences in culture, age, or personality—The Ice Child offers eleven moving short stories by author Leon Arden.

The collection introduces a wide cast of characters and scenarios. A husband and wife, touring Mexico, are confronted while on horseback, by savage bandits; a young man tries to rescue his mother from his father’s obsession, which is filling their apartment with more books than it can hold; a comic drama between two lovers is waged solely through messages left on their answering machines; a son wheels his sick father into a hospital and demands, at gun point, that he be given a heart by-pass; a lovely English woman arrives in New York to find she must share an apartment with a man she has never met; and a failed writer, with two friends, programs a computer to create a salable story, but ominously the PC also predicts their immediate future.

Bookended by stories about youth and old age, The Ice Child presents a unique but highly entertaining collection of tales.

"...Arden...manages to bring each story to life with a creative vibrancy and colourful prose...Savory, memorable morsels of brilliance from a clever wordsmith and a considerable talent to watch."

Book excerpt: Jo Harper, a successful young journalist, has only her adored two-year-old son, Sam, to remind her of her late partner. When Sam falls ill, there is only one slim hope - that his stepbrother John may hold the key to his survival. But John has disappeared. Seeking absolution for his part in the accidental death of his marine archeologist father and tortured by their failed relationship, John has set out alone against impossible odds to fulfil his father's dream - to uncover the last traces of the Franklin expedition, which vanished in the Arctic in 1847 while searching for the North West Passage. As uncanny parallels begin to unfold between the last days of the Franklin crew and the crisis facing Sam, Jo is plunged into a desparate race against time to save both the life of her son and the soul of her stepson. Beautifully written and deeply moving, THE ICE CHILD is storytelling at its very best.

Book excerpt: One of history’s great unsolved mysteries is the basis for Elizabeth Cooke’s exhilarating and deeply moving extreme-adventure novel about Arctic exploration, survival, and the unshakable bond between parents and children In 1845 Sir John Franklin and his crew of 128 men set out for the Arctic in search of the Northwest Passage. They were never seen or heard from again. Now, in an eerie replay of that tragedy, renowned archaeologist and Cambridge professor Douglas Marshall has vanished in Greenland while attempting to solve the centuries-old mystery. When journalist Jo Harper interviews Marshall’s wife, it is the beginning of her own obsession with the lost expedition . . . and with Douglas Marshall. This suspenseful, keenly touching tale of adventure, love, and survival shifts back and forth between the doomed 1845 voyage, told from the perspective of young ship hand Augustus Peterman, and Jo Harper’s present-day relationship with an extraordinary man who will change her profoundly, inspiring her to undertake her own seemingly impossible journey.

Book excerpt: A Woman At Once Blessed And Cursed With The Power Of Second Sight Follows Her Visions And Becomes The First Human To Cross The Perilous Bridge Of Ice To A New World Of Warmth, Plenty - And Undreamed Of Danger! "My favorite book of all time. I never tire of it because it speaks to a very deep part of me." Amazon 5-star review "The best book I've read in a really long time – the characters endearing and real." Goodreads It is 15,000 years ago, at the end of the last Ice Age, when young Laena and her sister survive a tragedy that marks their lives forever. In a world where mammoths roam, where nature's most fearful forces rage, and where fellow humans can pose a deadly threat, Laena relies on her incredible courage, strength, and intelligence to endure. This is Laena's story...the story of her seer-like visions of a world beyond that shapes her into a tribal leader in a society of arrogant men...the story of Laena's triumph as the Chosen One, only to be cast out into the wilderness with her husband and child. This epic saga of adventure, passion, and suspense follows the extraordinary Laena and her family on a great journey that take them from the vast Siberian tundra and the freezing darkness of the prehistoric past to the fiery dawn of breathtaking discovery – a new world, a new age, and a new dream. "Wonderful story, a real page turner" Amazon 5-star review "I absolutely devoured this book wondering if I had been in the story would I have made it to that utopia. Did I possess the same kind of strength as Laena? One of my favorites." Amazon 5-star review "Beautiful and surprisingly comforting. I am looking forward to the next book." Goodreads "I would give this book six stars if I could. A heroine who after a horrific tragedy develops an iron will and a vision given to her by the White Panther of a new and wonderful land that she will not let go for anyone or anything. It is this struggle that moves the story along at a fast clip, will anyone believe in her vision, will she find her parents in the new land, will anyone come with her, was it all just a childish dream...? A must." Amazon 5-star review Charlotte Prentiss is the celebrated author of Laena's Children, a five volume saga focusing on five key generations of women through 15,000 years of history, from their tribe's journey from the land bridge between Asia and Alaska through their slow spread south to what is now California.

The visitors were no strangers to earth The visitors had a mission to complete during their visit to Earth. Many years ago they had relocated animals to Earth because their own world called Viridis was dying. During the journey to Earth, an unknown virus had struck down most of the older members of the crew. However, the expedition had to continue on with the younger members including the children.

Book excerpt: Deep in a lonely cavern, across a wasteland of ice and snow, in the heart of the frozen north, an icicle started to drip... drip... drip... A hump of ice started to form. Slowly the icicle dripped and slowly the mound got bigger. For ten years its shape shifted and changed until it had taken the form of a child. Then one dark morning the sky burst in a crash of thunder. The figure shivered and cracked... and the ice child was born. A beautifully-told original story following the progress of the little ice boy who must learn to live amongst people and, most importantly of all, learn to love them. Peter Bailey manages to capture complex emotions and energy in the simplest of line illustrations. His charming artwork perfectly suits Nick Ward's at times plaintive and finally heartwarming story of a child coming to terms with friendship and identity.
