Teaser Tuesdays: The Arctic Code by Matthew J. Kirby (June 30)

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is The Arctic Code by Matthew J. Kirby.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
It is the near future, and the earth has entered a new ice age. Eleanor Perry lives in Tucson, one of the most popular destinations for refugees of the Freeze. She is the daughter of a climatologist who is trying to find new ways to preserve human life on the planet. Dr. Perry believes that a series of oil deposits she has found in the Arctic may hold the key to our survival. That's when she disappears—but not before sending Eleanor a series of cryptic messages that point to a significant and mysterious discovery. Now it's up to Eleanor to go find her.
This search will launch Eleanor on a breathless race to unlock the mysteries of what has happened to our planet, solving the riddle of the cold that could be humanity's end—and uncovering a threat to the earth that may not be of this world.

Here's this week's teaser, from page 33:

"We have something no other species in the history of the planet has ever had." He brought the index finger down and laid it against his temple. "Our brain. The human mind is an ingenious thing, and we will find a way to survive in an age when so many other animals go extinct. 

Let me know what you think of the book, and check back on Friday for my review!


  1. This sounds like an exciting book. I was just thinking how I think we're more likely to burn up rather than freeze--but that may be because it's summer and hot outside right now. :-)

    1. Yeah, part of the premise of the book is that instead of global warming the Earth is having global cooling - another ice age. Pretty neat stuff. :) Thanks for stopping by!
