Elisa James has been climbing mountains since she was a teenager, but the one she has yet to conquer is the mother of them of all...Mount Everest. Finally getting the chance to join an expedition that has their sights set on the Goddess, she cannot resist. However, when she meets the expedition, she’s shocked to see that Ryan Holbrook and his ex-girlfriend Maci Alexander, a novice climber, are also on the team. Three years earlier, Holbrook was climbing with the love of Elisa’s life and Elisa is convinced that the bastard left her girlfriend to die. Furious, Elisa demands Holbrook be banned from the team for his reputation of being a dangerous and reckless climber, but her request is denied. So, Elisa puts her own plan in motion. If Holbrook could use the mountain to commit murder, she would use it for revenge. However, things can quickly change on the Goddess, and when an unexpected storm moves in, Elisa finds herself teamed with Holbrook’s ex in an all-out fight for survival. “Every woman and man for themselves” is a mantra that every climber knows, but as the two women fight for their lives, fear is not the only emotion they begin to feel.
