On a routine crabbing expedition in the Bering Sea, Charlie Mears and the rest of the men aboard the trawler "Borealis" discover something unbelievable: a young woman running naked along the ridge of a passing iceberg. The men rescue her and bring her aboard the boat. But they will soon learn her horrible secret. By the time they find out why she was alone on the ice and what she truly is the nightmare will have begun, as one by one she infects them with an evil that brings about unimaginable terrors.
MY RATING: 4 STARS
So far, I'm two-for-two. This is my second story by Malfi and it didn't disappoint.
Although this is a novella, the characterization and imagery did not suffer from the short length. Borealis was a unique story for me because I don't think I have read anything like this in the past—that alone was refreshing.
The girl in this story seriously creeped me out. The strange way she spoke, mannerisms, having no name, etc., made shivers run down my spine. She just feels “wrong”.
There is so much I would like to say about this story, but they would all include spoilers—so you will just have to read Borealis.
