Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Horror fiction has introduced us to evil mists and evil fogs, so why not evil snow? Golden’s latest storms in with a breathless 50-page intro in which we meet the town of Coventry, New Hampshire, as its residents batten down the hatches against a monster blizzard. Wait, did someone just say “monster?” Twelve years after that whiteout, during which more than a dozen people vanished, survivors remain haunted by the “terrible, slender, icy figures” they saw stealing their loved ones. Our cast of characters is older now and more troubled, especially when another mythic-level tempest begins churning their way. Among them are former young lovers, now embittered spouses; a young man still shaken by the kid brother he lost; and a full-time loser ready to risk everything during a snowstorm heist. The so-called ice men are tucked off-screen for most of the book, but their eventual revealing is terrifically unsettling. What gives the book its heart is a return of sorts of those taken away 12 years earlier, offering brief, bittersweet reunions. Great fodder for a dark and snowy night. --Daniel Kraus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"Instantly involving and deeply scary. It will bring a blizzard to your bones (and your heart) even in the middle of July. Throw away all those old 'it was a dark and stormy night' novels; this one is the real deal. And watch out for that last page. It's a killer." --Stephen King

"A breathless [read]...Great fodder for a dark and snowy night." --Booklist

"Golden's Snowblind is an ethereal and nightmarish contemporary fairy tale. By turns horrific, moving, and ultimately redemptive, it's a hell of a ride." --David S. Goyer, screenwriter, The Man of Steel and (story) The Dark Knight Rises

"A ghost-house thrill-ride in the shape of a snowstorm, within the confines of a book. A great read for a winter night, or any night." --John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of Let the Right One In

"Horror with heart, Snowblind reminded me of classic Dean Koontz--the world is our own, the characters as knowable as our closest friends, but their adventures something altogether different, and altogether compelling. Christopher Golden writes with grace and beauty even while putting a chill to your spine. Read this and you'll never again peer through windswept snow without wondering what's behind it, I promise you." --Michael Koryta

"Working in an ensemble mode that may remind readers of classics like King's Salem's Lot and Straub's Floating Dragon, Christopher Golden's new novel is a real cannonball--fast-paced, suspenseful, and intense." --Dan Chaon, National Book Award-nominated author of Stay Awake

"With Snowblind, Christopher Golden brings serious chills to small town America. This is why people should lock their doors at night. Superb!" --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Extinction Machine and Fire & Ash

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
