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


“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.” ―Stephen King

“Great fodder for a dark and snowy night.” ―Booklist

“An ethereal and nightmarish contemporary fairy tale . . .” ―David S. Goyer, screenwriter, The Man of Steel

“Read this and you'll never again peer through windswept snow without wondering what's behind it, I promise you.” ―Michael Koryta

“Horror fiction is starting to make a comeback. If that's true, writers like Christopher Golden are a big part of the reason.” ―George R. R. Martin

“This is why people should lock their doors at night. Superb!” ―Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Extinction Machine

“May remind readers of classics like King's Salem's Lot and Straub's Floating Dragon... fast-paced, suspenseful, and intense.” ―Dan Chaon, author of Stay Awake

“A ghosthouse thrillride 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
