The result: a tense and exhilarating read' - Le Figaro 'There's no question about it: Isabelle Autissier is an excellent writer. . . . When it comes to describing nature, there's no one like her. . . You'll devour this novel' - Express 'With a realism that will take your breath away, this novel brings you to the rawest edges of what our humanity becomes when we're far from civilization. . . .

Icy, captivating, punctuated by questions about nature's deepest instincts-Isabelle Autissier steers this novel to perfection. Get on board' - L'Obs
