I felt that as it is All Hallows’ Eve I should pick an appropriately creepy book from my list of ‘I want’s today and this one is both creepy sounding and high up on my Lust List.
I haven’t read a Christopher Golden book in years but I adored the ones I did read and I would love to get my hands on this one. His first horror novel in more than a decade, Snow Blind is apparently reminiscent of Stephen King’s early work and brings ghost stories to a whole new level.
That is quite a high level of praise and I hope that I won’t be disappointed when I do get myself a copy to read. Regardless of that though, I love the cover art – it’s really atmospheric and suitably chilly considering the title!
Twelve years ago the small town of Coventry, Massachusetts was in the grasp of a particularly brutal winter. And then came the Great Storm.
It hit hard. Not everyone saw the spring. Today the families, friends and lovers of the victims are still haunted by the ghosts of those they lost so suddenly. If only they could see them one more time, hold them close, tell them they love them.
It was the deadliest winter in living memory.
When a new storm strikes, it doesn’t just bring snow and ice, it brings the people of Coventry exactly what they’ve been wishing for. And the realisation their nightmare is only beginning.
