In the spirit of John Carpenter's The Thing and Jacob's Ladder comes Stranded -- a terrifying, icebound thriller where nothing is quite what it seems by Bracken MacLeod. Badly battered by an apocalyptic storm, the crew of the Arctic Promise find themselves in increasingly dire circumstances as they sail blindly into unfamiliar waters and an ominously thickening fog. Without functioning navigation or communication equipment, they are lost and completely alone. One by one, the men fall prey to a mysterious illness. Deckhand Noah Cabot is the only person unaffected by the strange force plaguing the ship and her crew, which does little to ease their growing distrust of him. Dismissing Noah's warnings of worsening conditions, the captain of the ship presses on until the sea freezes into ice and they can go no farther. When the men are ordered overboard in an attempt to break the ship free by hand, the fog clears, revealing a faint shape in the distance that may or may not be their destination. Noah leads the last of the able-bodied crew on a journey across the ice and into an uncertain future where they must fight for their lives against the elements, the ghosts of the past and, ultimately, themselves.

When Her Friend Goes Missing, Every Minute Counts Darcy St. James returns to Alaska to join a journalist friend undercover on the trail of a big story. But when Darcy arrives, she finds her friend has disappeared. Troubled by the cruise ship's vague explanation, Darcy uses her cover as a travel reporter to investigate further. The last person Gage McKenna expects to see during his summer aboard a cruise ship leading adventure excursions is Darcy. And in typical Darcy fashion, she's digging up more trouble. He'd love to just forget her--but something won't let him. And he can't help but worry about her as they are heading into more remote regions of Alaska and eventually into foreign waters. Something sinister is going on, and the deeper they push, the more Gage fears they've only discovered the tip of the iceberg. "The third book in Pettrey's Alaskan Courage series ratchets up the action and suspense. It's difficult to stop yourself from peeking ahead to the end, but the ride is worth the anxiety." --RT Book Reviews "Dani Pettrey has delivered another incredibly compelling adventure in Alaska. STRANDED is full of suspense, beautiful rugged wilderness and white-water rapids, and a heartfelt romance. I loved catching up with the McKenna family." - Dee Henderson, New York Times bestselling author

Thirty-five-year-old Lissy and her friends Tom, Joanne, Robbie, and Sarah along with Lissy's new love interest, Rigo, take a morning dive in a gorgeous-but dangerous-site two hours off the coast of Cozumel, Mexico. The dive captain warned them, and sure enough, tragedy strikes as they explore the spectacular reef. These six are separated from the other eight divers in their group and see the current carry them away to almost certain death. After an exhausting battle with the elements, the surviving divers drift onto a beautiful, seemingly uninhabited island. However, far from the safe haven they had hoped for, the island presents terrifying new challenges for Lissy and her friends. With daily battles for survival, the group must confront the overwhelmingly predatory inhabitants of their new home to cement their chances of rescue. They soon realize, though, that nature isn't the only force in play. Between the hyperaggressive monkeys ruling the island, giant reptiles, and dog-sized spiders, the friends recognize something else must be at work. But what? Their encounter with a band of sentient orangutans brightens their uncertain future, but can these kind and gentle primates give the friends the edge they need to survive being Stranded?
