“With his latest release, Olde Heuvelt sends readers down a dark and treacherous path of obsession and madness in a deadly confrontation with forces more ancient than nature.”
Nick Grevers awakens from a coma to a world of dread. A travel journalist, Grevers has extensive injuries, and his climbing partner Augustin is missing, presumed dead. Unable to speak, his face in bandages, Grevers claims he has amnesia.
He remembers everything.
He remembers being called to the Maudit, a remote peak in the Swiss Alps. He remembers how quiet the slopes were. He remembers how they had this strange sense they weren’t alone when they entered the valley.
Something was there, waiting …
And now something has awakened in Grevers, something dangerous that could harm everyone around him.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Dutch writer Thomas Olde Heuvelt hit the US horror scene in 2016 with his first English translation and never looked back. Olde Heuvelt is the author of Hex, Orakel, Dolores Dolly Poppedijn, and The Ink Readers of Doi Saket among others. With his latest release, Olde Heuvelt sends readers down a dark and treacherous path of obsession and madness in a deadly confrontation with forces more ancient than nature. Paul Tremblay (A Head Full of Ghosts, The Pallbearers’ Club) calls Echo “A compulsive page-turner mixing supernatural survival horror and pulp adventure” and Clay McLeod Chapman (Whisper Down the Lane) says “I can still feel the lingering chill in my bones well after putting the book down”. John F.D. Taff (The Fearing, Dark Stars [editor]) says “[This] deft prose will have you absolutely frigid, sitting up straight and hearing every squeak in the house … and savoring every delicious frozen shiver.”
Releasing from Tor Nightfire 8 February 2022, Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt is available for pre-order now.
