When uninvited guests from resource-stripping Harvest Inc. arrive at a secret wildlife station in the far north, Luui Angakkuarneq, the shaman’s daughter, must get help from both the natural and the spiritual world if she is to save the last wild polar bear in the Arctic.
Set during the 2042 Christmas season, Yule at Aurora Station reunites readers with Luui Angakkuarneq, better known as the five-year-old shaman’s daughter from the Greenland Missing Persons series of novels and novellas. Luui, now 27, lives a solitary life in the High Arctic, committed to doing everything she can to protect and preserve a dwindling population of flora and fauna threatened by the accelerated effects of climate change. Living so far from civilisation also allows Luui to embrace the magic part of her life: shamanism, and her connection to the spiritual world.
Yule at Aurora Station is different from Petersen’s other works in that it explores an even more fantastical element with characters drawn from and inspired by Greenlandic mythology. Criminal acts are committed in this story, but readers looking for police procedurals or detective work set in the so-called real world will be disappointed. You can get a taste of Luui’s adult life in the short concept story SCAMP, available as a FREE download.
There’s none of that here.
