Christopher Golden’s 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 an ugly, misshapen cadaver—not the holy man they expected, but a hideous creature with horns. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Christopher Golden has written an extremely gripping story, with echoes of John Carpenter’s The Thing. It’s not simply the icy setting of Ararat; Golden has also mastered a similar (and similarly thrilling) sense of claustrophobic dread. It’s a creepy, chilling book.” Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author
“This is the Lovecraftian horror, mountaineering, 1970s-style paranoia, theologically philosophical, paranormal, Satanic love story I’ve been waiting for…Scary and smart.” Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author
Ararat has that horror-adventure vibe that’s like candy to me. Delicious Terror Candy! Golden seizes your heart in his hands with a tale as terrifying as it is thrilling!” Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author
“The whole is more than the sum of its parts in this exceptional supernatural thriller from bestseller Golden.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Golden takes readers on a terrifying journey into their own worst nightmares with a novel that is sure to chill to the bone.” Booklist
“A thriller with an intellectual bent…ruminates on the nature and existence of good and evil while providing the chills and tingles fans of this prolific author have come to expect.” Kirkus Reviews
“Golden gives a face and a name to the darkness inside us. A compelling read!” M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All The Gifts
“A rollicking and horrifying adventure that avalanches from the top of the famed Turkish mountain…Ararat is as relentless as it is addictive.” Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts
