- We can order this from the publisher
Meryam and Adam take risks for a living. But neither is prepared for what lies in the legendary heights of Mount Ararat, Turkey.
First, to reach a massive cave revealed by an avalanche, they discover the hole in the mountain's heart is really an ancient ship, buried in time. A relic that some fervently believe is Noah's Ark.
Deep in its recesses stands a coffin inscribed with mysterious symbols that no one in their team of scholars, archaeologists and filmmakers can identify.
Inside is a twisted, horned cadaver. Outside a storm threatens to break. As terror begins to infiltrate their every thought, is it the raging blizzard that chases them down the mountain - or something far worse?
'(Golden's writing is) the real deal.' - Stephen King

If ever we could use a story that reminds us that we're together, a singular race, in religion and gender, that time is now. Bravo, Christopher Golden for sewing such enormous themes into a nail-biting, exhilarating book -- Josh Malerman

Christopher Golden always produces first rate, solidly entertaining fiction and Ararat is no exception... You just can't beat shoving a group of people into a highly stressful situation, turning the screws and watching them all squirm * The Eloquent Page *
A very well-written, satisfying, frightening, chilly and gory horror extravaganza * For Winter Nights *
Like Michael Crichton or Dan Brown, Christopher Golden is an expert at the high-concept rollercoaster thriller...a master class in pacing...a new jewel in horror-adventure fiction.

Masterful high-energy horror writing from an author at the top of his game * Starburst *
Oh boy, this book. Intense and exciting and so, so immersive * Dual Reads *
Atmospheric and truly chilling * The Tattooed Book Geek *
