“It was only a matter of time before its possession of me was complete and irreversible. Thinking I could escape it was but sheer madness, and the lull even more painful…”

Imprisoned for a crime he believes he didn’t commit, Leroy, a student at the Yale University, struggles to refute the allegation of murder of his mentor, Professor Howard Bingley.

It’s as if a whole year had been erased from Leroy’s mind, or something hinders his ability to recall his memories…

What did Leroy do in Brazil where he and Howard’s body had been found? What could have pushed him to shoot this man who he appreciated and held in high esteem?

Unobtrusively, the nightmares come back to Leroy. Howard’s mental degeneracy. The senseless trip through the Brazilian wilderness, hunting for a species of intelligent, subterranean creatures that Howard believed to be older that human. The nefarious black river that leads them to the lair of the creatures. The mysterious disappearance of their guide, Alvaro.

There is something dwelling in the caves. An entity, an evil of unknown origin.

The fight has begun. The fight to keep their sanity. The fight to survive.

But one does not escape the Elder God so easily. And once it has you in its grasp, your soul is condemned to roam eternally through the tunnels of the Gate to the Underworld.

Mount Terror by E.L. Giles – Launches 30th January 2021

The idea of Mount Terror first came when I was reading and studying the history of South Pole expeditions. From James Clark Ross’ scientific expedition and discovery of the Ross Ice Shelf, to Robert Falcon Scott’s deadly trip to the geographic South Pole, and the search party that followed Scott’s death, I was fascinated by the stories of endurance, of survival and the passion that animated these great explorers.

Mount Terror by E.L. Giles

“Do not come here. We are all doomed.” The words haunt Henry Chapelton as he braves the unwelcoming waters of the Austral sea, heading toward Antarctica to save Captain Ernst Land and his ill-fated crew. What’s supposed to be a rescue mission quickly turns into a fight for survival, a battle against Nature, the elements, and forces of unknown origins.
