“Who are we to argue with the King of horror and deny ourselves a story of snowbound slaughter?”
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?
Why We’re Excited About This Book:
It’s a familiar trope in horror fiction, but who can resist the temptation of the old unearthed evil tale, especially when married to one of the world’s great mysteries in the shape of the fate of the legendary, or mythical depending on your point of view, Noah’s Ark. Stephen King himself describes Christopher Golden as being ‘the real deal’ so who are we to argue with the King of horror and deny ourselves a story of snowbound slaughter?
Ararat is out on 18 April 2017 and is available from Amazon.
