In the race to the North Pole, who will become the victor, and who will fall to the ravages of the Cold Beneath?
Phillip Syntax is the world’s best biomechanic with a checkered past of betrayal and lost love. When given a chance at redemption by the celebrated soldier Gideon Lightbridge, how can he refuse? This ill-fated expedition turns from daring to disastrous when their airship, the Northern Fancy, crashes in the far and frozen north, leaving the crew stranded without hope. But that isn’t the worst of it. One by one the dead crew members arise from the cold ashes to seek the warmth of the living, and it becomes every man for himself in an effort not to join the ranks of the revenants.

Praise for The Cold Beneath “Engaging from the first and captivating to the last, The Cold Beneath is infused with an originality that goes beyond just the blending of zombies and steampunk – which in itself is cool as hell.” ~David Dunwoody, author of Empire’s End
“The Cold Beneath mixes Gothic horror, steampunk, and high adventure into a tale full of colorful characters, mystery, and enough creepy imagery to keep you shivering under your covers all night long. Tonia Brown has given us a new vision of zombie terror, and it will chill you to the bone.” ~Patrick D’Orazio, author of Comes the Dark
“I love this book. Tonia Brown captures the feel and tone of Jules Verne and other writers of that era with an elegance and modern accessibility of prose that just amazed me. Her take on zombies is original and creepy; the characters sympathetic and believable, and the reveal at the end? Just loved it.” ~Dana Fredsti author of Plague Town.
