Disgraced Ice Master, Erroneous Jeremiah Smith, has a tainted heart. Cursed to live a half life, and haunted by night terrors, Smith is drawn to the Arctic in search of a cure, but denied every opportunity by the British Admiralty.
Inuppaaq is a young Greenlander, guided by the village shaman to begin her apprenticeship, but when her brother is taken by the Eqqillit, she will risk everything to save him.
Destined to meet, Smith and Inuppaaq discover that their quests are linked by the dark magic of the Arctic.
The Ice Circus is a fantastical and chilling adventure set in the heyday of Arctic Exploration, drawing on the author’s own experience of living in the far north of Greenland.
Blending the bright lights and showmanship of the circus with the dark magic of the Arctic, The Ice Circus is for fans of Philip Pullman and Naomi Novik.

The whalebone cage was made of great ribs, tied with sealskin cord stolen from Saqqaq. The Eqqillit had nimble fingers on human hands at the ends of human arms. If Inuppaaq looked only at the female Eqqillit’s upper body, she might just as well have been looking at her own reflection in black sea ice, polished by the wind. They were both naked, both bloody, both equally determined to deny each other the young Greenlandic man inside the cage.
