“With his latest, Hernandez presents us with the tale of two grieving brothers on a mysterious paradise getaway with horrifying secrets of its own.”
As one of the last true wild places on the planet, Nahanni National Park is the perfect place for estranged brothers Joseph and Oscar to finally catch up. Only accessible by plane, as long as the weather cooperates, the park is a way for the brothers to reunite and grieve the loss of their mother. Along for the ride is Gillian, Joseph’s first love.
More than beautiful, the park is quite mysterious, with tales of giants and prehistoric animals. And then there’s the high number of violent deaths that have occurred, inspiring its more seductive name. Now Joseph, Oscar, and Gillian are there, dreaming of what’s to come, confronted by the past, far from home, and so far from help.
