The world knows Jack London as a writer who lived his own real-life
adventures. But there are some parts of his life that have remained
hidden for many years, things even he couldn’t set down in writing.
Terrifying, mysterious, bizzare, and magical — these are the Secret
Journeys of Jack London.
Jack is making his way back to civilization after barely surviving his adventure in the Yukon. That episode tested his body, his mind, and even his grip on his humanity — but it was nothing compared to what he is about to face. Clinging to life after he is captured in an attack by savage pirates, Jack is unprepared for what he confronts at the hands of the crew and their charismatic, murderous captain, Ghost. For these mariners are not mortal men but hungry beasts chasing gold and death across the North Pacific. Jack’s only hope lies with Sabine — a sad, sultry captive of Ghost’s insatiable hunger. But on these waters, nothing is as it seems, and Sabine may be hiding dangerous secrets of her own.
The second installment in the adventures of the young Jack London is a masterpiece of tension and emotion. Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon, along with illustrator Greg Ruth, have crafted a tale for readers of all ages, a sweeping, action-packed, romantic, and suspenseful descent into the darkest desires of men and beasts and the hell that awaits them.
