From publisher blurb:
For as long as the icy winds have blown across the arctic plains, it has hungered after humanity, its bite the kiss of frozen death.
Through the great ice age, the time of its greatest power, it hunted freely, its might unchallenged. But with the glaciers' disappearance, it retreated from the Earth.
Since that time, it has yearned to return, to sate its bloodlust once more. For this ancient and evil creature, the stars are right and the time is now. To stalk the Earth again and sheath the land in a glittering blanket of the coldest ice, it returns.
