Description

*Winner of the 2017 Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel*

New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden's writing is 'the real deal' (Stephen King) and this heart-pounding supernatural thriller will thrill and fascinate in equal measure.

'Golden puts it all together with tremendous skill and a gleeful relish' - Financial Times

Meryam and Adam take risks for a living. But neither is prepared for what lies in the legendary heights of Mount Ararat, Turkey.

First to reach a massive cave revealed by an avalanche, they discover the hole in the mountain's heart is really an ancient ship, buried in time. A relic that some fervently believe is Noah's Ark.

Deep in its recesses stands a coffin inscribed with mysterious symbols that no one in their team of scholars, archaeologists and filmmakers can identify. Inside is a twisted, horned cadaver. Outside a storm threatens to break.

As terror begins to infiltrate their every thought, is it the raging blizzard that chases them down the mountain - or something far worse?

Review quote

Golden seizes your heart in his hands -- Chuck Wendig A claustrophobic snowstorm that will leave you terrified -- Sarah Pinborough, author of BEHIND HER EYES Golden puts it all together with tremendous skill and a gleeful relish * Financial Times * A clever, original, and macabre re-imagining of one the world's oldest stories -- Paul Tremblay, author of A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS Christopher Golden's masterpiece...I loved it! -- Brian Keene If ever we could use a story that reminds us that we're together, a singular race, in religion and gender, that time is now. Bravo, Christopher Golden for sewing such enormous themes into a nail-biting, exhilarating book -- Josh Malerman This is the Lovecraftian horror, mountaineering, 1970s-style paranoia, theologically philosophical, paranormal, satanic love story I've been waiting for -- Chelsea Cain Exceptional * Publishers Weekly Starred Review * If ever we could use a story that reminds us that we're together, a singular race, in religion and gender, that time is now. Bravo, Christopher Golden for sewing such enormous themes into a nail-biting, exhilarating book -- Josh Malerman, author of BIRD BOX A thriller with an intellectual bent, Golden's latest effort ruminates on the nature and existence of good and evil while providing the chills and tingles fans of this prolific author have come to expect * Kirkus * Christopher Golden always produces first rate, solidly entertaining fiction and Ararat is no exception... You just can't beat shoving a group of people into a highly stressful situation, turning the screws and watching them all squirm * The Eloquent Page * A very well-written, satisfying, frightening, chilly and gory horror extravaganza * For Winter Nights * Like Michael Crichton or Dan Brown, Christopher Golden is an expert at the high-concept rollercoaster thriller...a master class in pacing...a new jewel in horror-adventure fiction. This is a gateway novel - something you can give to friends who are swamped in legal thrillers or cop thrillers... give them Ararat and it should be easy to pull new readers to the dark side * This Is Horror * Masterful high-energy horror writing from an author at the top of his game * Starburst * Oh boy, this book. Intense and exciting and so, so immersive * Dual Reads * Atmospheric and truly chilling * The Tattooed Book Geek *
