Praise For…

"Christopher Golden’s Road of Bones is tightly wound, atmospheric, and creepy as hell. It will take you to a place you’ve never been before, and the trip will scare the hell out of you. I loved it." —Stephen King

"Two men willing to risk their lives for a last-chance reality TV pitch find themselves on a white-knuckle hell ride on Siberia's infamous Kolyma Highway. Road of Bones is unrelenting and will chill you to your core." —Paul Tremblay, New York Times Bestselling author

"The road is long, the night is cold, and there’s terror at every pullout, nothing but dread between. Just try and put this book down, I dare you.” —Stephen Graham Jones, bestselling author of The Only Good Indians

"A slash in reality, or what we mistakenly assume is the real, exposing not only extrinsic horrors but those within, all found in a corner of the globe that has long held our fascination, though most of us don’t have the courage to make the trek. Golden has that courage. Road of Bones is a masterclass in mind-set and setting; I’ve never felt the temperature of a book so firmly. I’ve also never been so afraid to step outside. In some ways a quick story (the central events span much less than 24 hours), in other ways enormous: the emotional stakes could not be higher. A breathtaking experience, a glacial gust of a book, Christopher Golden’s best yet." –Josh Malerman, New York Times best selling author of Bird Box and Goblin.

"Road of Bones is wonderful! The frozen waste is so vividly rendered, I felt the biting cold in my own bones and drew breath with the characters as they fought for survival against the vastness of nature. Gripping, eerie and ultimately beautiful. It’s a breakneck speed adventure, with so much soul at its heart.” —Catriona Ward, author of The Last House on Needless Street

“I don’t know how else to say it. This book is scary as f***. Do not read alone in the dark.” —New York Times Bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente
