I like this very much. I have an image on here based on a scene from The Terror. Not as good as this though.

It was the HMS Erebus.  They will be looking for the Terror now.

Fabulous picture! Terror (or Erebus) has just been rediscovered after 170 years, as you may know.

Ever hear Stan Rogers' "The Northwest Passage"? It's an incredibly brilliant song about the failed expedition.

I haven't read the book, but I think you caught the atmosphere of it with great precission. Again, the details, perspective and colours make your wonderfull talent be seen, but mainly of all is how you gave me (who haven't read the book) catch an interest both for the canvas and the book. I think that, if the author/ess was to choose an image for the cover, yours would certainly fit perfectly.
It is hard to express with words how I feel when I see this picture, but it makes me feel the "terror" that the chaeacters in the book certainly express when you read about their experiences across the novel, so the title fits not only because it describes the picture but because the picture express the novel with great precission.
Great, I started rambling, sorry about that ^^'
I loved it, as I do with every piece of your work.
Merry X-mas and best of wishes for the rest of your holidays
