Mogsy’s Pick

The White Road by Sarah Lotz (May 30, 2017 by Mulholland Books)

I’ve been in full Dark Fantasy/Horror-reading mode lately, which probably has a lot to do with my pick this week. But when it comes to fave author Sarah Lotz, the fact that she has an upcoming book is reason enough to get excited.

the-white-road“A cutting-edge thriller about one man’s quest to discover horror lurking at the top of the world.

Desperate to attract subscribers to his fledgling website, ‘Journey to the Dark Side’, ex-adrenalin junkie and slacker Simon Newman hires someone to guide him through the notorious Cwm Pot caves, so that he can film the journey and put it on the internet. With a tragic history, Cwm Pot has been off-limits for decades, and unfortunately for Simon, the guide he’s hired is as unpredictable and dangerous as the watery caverns that lurk beneath the earth. After a brutal struggle for survival, Simon barely escapes with his life, but predictably, the gruesome footage he managed to collect down in the earth’s bowels goes viral. Ignoring the warning signs of mental trauma, and eager to capitalize on his new internet fame, Simon latches onto another escapade that has that magic click-bait mix of danger and death – a trip to Everest. But up above 8000 feet, in the infamous Death Zone, he’ll need more than his dubious morals and wits to guide him, especially when he uncovers the truth behind a decade-old tragedy – a truth that means he might not be coming back alive. A truth that will change him – and anyone who views the footage he captures – forever.”

  1. I’ve only read one book by Lotz but it was so good that I will definitely read more. This sounds excellent in fact the synopsis gave me the chills. Or maybe it’s the thought of caves and the like! Lynn 😄


  2. I’ve seen her name around somewhere else recently, but can’t remember where because my brain isn’t really working yet this morning. This one does sound good and hey dark fantasy/horror always gets my attention.


  3. This sounds like it’s going to keep you up at night type book! That cover is stunning and scary, lol. Foreboding! I’ve not read the author but this sounds great. Hope you enjoy it, Mogsy 🙂


  4. I wish I wasn’t such of a scaredy-cat because I think I could really enjoy dark fantasy. I like scary but more along the lines of the Supernatural TV show or something like that LOL! Regardless this sounds excellent, I hope you love it 🙂
