The small New England town of Coventry is haunted by its memories of a deadly winter... in which loved ones were lost, families torn apart, and a town buried in a terrible blizzard. Now, twelve years later, the people plagued by their memories of that storm are haunted once again as a new storm approaches, promising to wreak new havoc. Old ghosts trickle back, and this storm will prove even more terrifying and deadly than the last. With richly textured characters, scarred and haunted by the ghosts of those they loved most, Snowblind reinvents the ghost story for today's world.

This is my first Christopher Golden novel, and now I am looking for more. A great horror story without all the gore. A fast read.

This is my second Christopher Golden novel. I still like Dead Ringers the best, but this book started good and was good to the end. I'll definitely see winter storms a lot different from now on. Happy Reading!

I really like this novel quite a lot.
it was uniquely conceptual
horror, ghosts, demons, wraiths,
spirits reincarnation and possession, however the elemental aspect (the winter
during blizzards being the
qualifier), made a common
subject matter a lot more
interesting....scary but not
overall 'really' frightening.
excellent winter reading if you
like a traditional horror cozy.

I really, really, REALLY liked the first part of the book. It was super atmospheric, with a huge blizzard bearing down on a New England town. The story is an ensemble-style tale, which I usually enjoy. Several folks mysteriously die during the storm. 12 years later a new storm is blowing in and the ghosts of those lost seem to be returning.

I read a review of the book, which commented on how many horror stories often lose their energy once the reveal of the "bad guy" happens. And unfortunately, this is the case with "Snowblind." The author has created potentially interesting bad guys, but there's not a whole lot of explanation about them. And the end of the book moves at such a fast pace, that it's over before you know it. To top it off, the author throws in a "twisty" ending that just kind of left me disappointed.

Great premise, but overall the delivery just didn't live up to what I was hoping for.

Keenan gritted his teeth against the cold and shook his head. It was a stupid idea and the semantics didn't make a damn difference. Even if a bear had come hurtling out of the storm and crashed into his car as he drove by, there would be some evidence of its presence. Blood. Fur. Tracks. Unless the bear had wings, it hadn't been a bear.
