Summary
Many generations ago the Wall was built to hold back the sea. Starting as a simple dam, it's now grown into the vast, linear city of Northland. The city's prosperity has brought the whole of Europe together and so survived wars and feudal unrest; but now darkness is falling. Famine, destruction, and terror creep in the wake of increasingly long winters. As a mass exodus to warmer climes threatens to fracture Northland, one man believes he can outwit the cold and even salvage some scraps of the great civilization before interminable gloom settles over the land; before the fires of war lay waste to an empire, before the ice comes.

Summary
"Many generations ago, the Wall was built to hold back the sea. A simple dam, it grew into a vast linear city, home to scholars, builders, and merchants. Northland's prosperity survived wars and unrest--and brought the whole of Europe together. But now darkness is falling.

As a mass exodus to warmer climes threatens to fracture Northland, one man believes he can outwit the cold, and even salvage some scraps of the great civilization--before interminable gloom settles over the land; before the fires of war lay waste to an empire; before the ice comes..."--
