Speculative fiction is a broad umbrella category of narrative fiction referring to any fiction story that includes elements, settings and characters whose features are created out of imagination and speculation rather than based on attested reality and everyday life. That encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism.
Lost in the Arctic waste, carrying a baby whose love he could never deserve, Larten faces the darkest time he has ever known and the blackness of an abyss both imagined... and real.
But hope has a way of shining through even the smallest of cracks, and just as Larten reaches the end, a new beginning presents itself, as faces from the past join the blossoming of a new romance. The trouble is, for Larten, the violence of his youth is never far from the surface... and those he loves are the ones he hurts the most. As Larten experiences heaven and hell, and he tries to save the soul of a child, the question is: can he save his own?
