Evocative, chilling and superbly unsettling, it is very good indeed. -- Sarah Broadhurst BOOKSELLER This gripping ghost story has moments of horror and beauty SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Paver's descriptions of the topography are marvellously vivid and add to the sense of menace that suffuses the story -- Joan Smith SUNDAY TIMES An atmospheric ghost story that would give Susan Hill a run for her money INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY A chilling period piece, Dark Matter cunningly illustrates how fear, rather than death, is the great equaliser. INDEPENDENT More than just a ghost story, this is an exquisitely told psychological thriller. Unputdownable! WOMANS WEEKLY A genuinely terrifying tale ... I cannot recommend this novel enough, especially in these dark nights, you will certainly get more than you bargained for. I did. SAVIDGE READS Book Blog Ghost stories don't frighten me much but this one did. Quite a lot, actually ... Chilling in every respect. -- Richard Madeley Dark Matter builds suspense brilliantly ... As well as a ghost story, it's a great portrayal of Svalbard and the experience of spending a winter in the Arctic. ADVENTURE TRAVEL A genuinely suspenseful and really quite chilling tale TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT
Born in Malawi to a Belgian mother and a father who ran the tiny 'NYASALAND TIMES', Michelle Paver moved to the UK when she was three. She was brought up in Wimbledon and, following a Biochemistry Degree from Oxford, she became a partner in a big City law firm. She gave up the City to follow her long-held dream of becoming a writer. She is the author of the brilliantly successful children's series, THE CHRONICLES OF ANCIENT DARKNESS. DARK MATTER is her first adult ghost story. It arises from her lifelong love of the Arctic, which has taken her to northern Canada, Greenland, Scandinavia and Spitsbergen.
