The novel is a fictionalized account of a the historical Arctic expedition of Captain Sir John Franklin and the two ships under his command: the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror.  In the novel, while Franklin and his crew are plagued by starvation and scurvy and forced to contend with mutiny and cannibalism, they are stalked across the bleak Arctic landscape by a monster.
