About the Book

26 Below

Title: 26 Below Series: Alaskan Cyber Hunters #1 Author: Kimberley Woodhouse Publisher: Kregel Publications Release Date: April 4, 2023 Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

“A THRILL RIDE . . . AS CURRENT AS TODAY’S FRONT-PAGE NEWS!” –Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author

A curse. A killer. A chill in the air. Temps are dropping and time is running out. In her new role as Emergency Operations Center director for Fairbanks, Alaska, Darcie Phillips prevents disasters. But none of her training can prepare her for the terror that’s coming. As a cybersecurity specialist, Jason Myers is determined to ferret out any threats to the town he now calls home–and that includes his reckless brother and his ecoterrorist friends. When an old woman’s wild prediction–widespread destruction as soon as the Fairbanks temperature falls to 26 below–hits national headlines, neither Darcie nor Jason sees a real risk to anything but tourism. Then the bodies start dropping. Darcie is relying on her experience and intelligence to stop a killer; Jason is relying on God to guide the way. But they’ll have to work together to find the truth and prevent their Alaskan town from becoming a city of nightmares. “An action-packed page-turner that . . . blew me away. If you like stories of intrigue, action, romance, and biblical hope, this is the story for you.” –Tracie Peterson, ECPA and USA Today best-selling author

My thoughts

The end is near! It is coming! We must prepare!…When it hits twenty-six below, all will be lost. People will die! The end is near!”

An old woman, from the book 26 Below

There’s nothing like a frightening word spoken by a woman and caught on social media about the coming disaster in Alaska to make people worry (or laugh at her, and ignore her, depending on the audience). People are calling the old woman, probably mockingly, the Prophetess. And Darcie Phillips, new director of the Emergency Operations Center in Fairbanks, Alaska, has noticed her. And wondered. But first, there’s an enormous amount of work for her tiny staff to accomplish in order to get emergency services and procedures in place in the event that a disaster occurs. Darcy can’t necessarily prevent those, but she can create systems and connect emergency services, shelters, state troopers, hospitals, and fire departments so that when the unthinkable happens, Alaska is ready.

Or can she?

Turns out that even before she started working, a group who’s determined to wreck her systems and show that the government is incompetent has been in planning–and in play. But at the moment, no one knows that these people exist.

Darcie’s team–which is ridiculously small despite the enormous task before it–is composed of competent and committed individuals who have thrown themselves together with her to accomplish what seems like the impossible. But the Prophetess continues to pop up with her frightening warnings, then she disappears again. And no one knows who she is or where to find her. Does this woman actually know something that Darcie can use to protect Alaskans?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading 26 Below! This is truly the kind of suspense/thriller I adore. And I loved Darcie, and Jason Myers, who comes to work with the Emergency Operations Center with his own exceptional computer skills. Darcie and Jason might just be a perfect fit; but they’ll have to overcome a disaster, the pains and betrayals of their own pasts, and 26-below weather to discover that. Oh–and, they’ll have to survive.

Read 26 Below for an exciting, sometimes frightening ride through beautiful, untamable Alaska–and those who love the state and call it home.

Enjoy! –Wren
