"An extremely gripping story, with echoes of John Carpenter’s The Thing...It’s a creepy, chilling book." —Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan

"Part psychological horror, part supernatural thriller, Ararat is a masterclass in supernatural suspense. Don't read it before bed!" —Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes

"Ararat is a rollicking and horrifying relentless as it is addictive." —Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock

New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden’s Ararat is a supernatural thriller about a mountain adventure that quickly turns into a horrific nightmare of biblical proportions.

Ararat is the heart-pounding tale of an adventure that goes wrong…on a biblical scale. When an earthquake reveals a secret cave hidden inside Mount Ararat in Turkey, a daring newly engaged couple are determined to be the first ones inside…and what they discover will change everything.

The cave is actually a buried ancient ship that many quickly come to believe is Noah’s Ark. When a team of scholars, archaeologists, and filmmakers make it inside the ark, they discover an elaborate coffin in its recesses. Inside the coffin they find something hideous. Shock and fear turn to horror when a massive blizzard blows in, trapping them thousands of meters up the side of a remote mountain. All they can do is pray for safety. But something wicked is listening to their prayers…and it wants to answer.

An engaging premise - that Noah's Ark unwittingly had a monstrous creature on board in addition to the proverbial animals - carries this novel through its first half in a sufficiently scary setting. Readers who are familiar with the Bible story and the Book of Enoch will find some interesting allusions here. Some readers may find that the action and the scares drag after the climax, but a twisted ending almost makes up for the slow pace. An interesting read for those who enjoy monsters!

For the first 200 pages it was verily a barn burning crescendo of excitement and intrigue. Thence it became somewhat suspect of being derailed due to a climate of endless romantic dialogue. I sensed the author had run out of plausible ideas and as a result, only a virtual miracle could save this book from the abyss of mediocrity. But behold, the near impossible. An ending that rescued Ararat from the discount trolley at the VPL book sale.

Not as scary as I wanted it to be.
