    As a noun a grue is a fictional monster.

    You are likely to be eaten by a grue | Know Your Meme

    "The word was first used in modern times as a fictional predator from Jack Vance’s Dying Earth universe (described as being part “ocular bat”, part “unusual hoon” and part man)."

    According to the Collins English Dictionary, it is also "a shiver or shudder; a creeping of the flesh." So, in Spanish, it would be escalofrío, temblor, estremecimiento, etc.
    However, it would be good to have a little more context. What kind of text is the phrase in? What does it talk about?
