Book Review: Snowblind by Christopher Golden

Snowblind The small New England town of Coventry had weathered a thousand blizzards...but never one like this. Icy figures danced in the wind and gazed through children's windows with soul-chilling eyes. People wandered into the whiteout and were never seen again. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same.

Now, as a new storm approaches twelve years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow. Photographer Jake Schapiro mourns his little brother, Isaac, even as---tonight---another little boy is missing. Mechanic and part-time thief Doug Manning's life has been forever scarred by the mysterious death of his wife, Cherie, and now he’s starting over with another woman and more ambitious crimes. Police detective Joe Keenan has never been the same since that night, when he failed to save the life of a young boy . . . and the boy’s father vanished in the storm only feet away. And all the way on the other side of the country, Miri Ristani receives a phone call . . . from a man who died twelve years ago.

As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last. - goodreads

Perfect book to read while its a little snowy.  I mean, just imagine that you are out building a snowman, perhaps tobogganing and some fog comes up, and bam your dead.


Yup, thats the premise of it. Snow Zombies.

Every big ass snowstorm these 'snow zombies' (they aren't actually called that in the book, but I just felt like they explain the things the best) come back and try and get more victims. But this time the snow zombies try and warn the town and all the people who lost someone in the first freak snowstorm.

Such a weird idea but it worked.

3.5-4 stars.
