Scott Carson – The Chill

Wow! This is one terrific horror/suspense/disaster novel. Characters you root for and a story that grips from the first page. (Stephen King, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Institute)

Horror has a new name and its Scott Carson. The Chill is an eerie dive into the murky depths of the supernatural. A story that has you looking back over your shoulder on every page. (Michael Connelly, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Night Fire)

A creepy tale of supernatural terror. (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

In this terrifying thriller, a supernatural force – set in motion a century ago – threatens to devastate New York City.

Far upstate, in New Yorks ancient forests, a drowned village lays beneath the dark, still waters of the Chilewaukee reservoir. Early in the 20th century, the town was destroyed for the greater good: Bringing water to the millions living downstate. Or at least thats what the politicians from Manhattan insisted at the time. The local families, settled there since Americas founding, were forced from their land, but they didnt move far, and some didnt move at all…

Now, a century later, the repercussions of human arrogance are finally making themselves known. An inspector assigned to oversee the dam, dangerously neglected for decades, witnesses something inexplicable. It turns out that more than the village was left behind in the waters of the Chill when it was abandoned. The townspeople didnt evacuate without a fight. A dark prophecy remained, too, and the time has come for it to be fulfilled. Those who remember must ask themselves: Who will be next? For sacrifices must be made. And as the dark waters begin to inexorably rise, the demand for a fresh sacrifice emerges from the deep….

The story is engaging and exciting with some very good lore, but the excitement mostly happens toward the middle and coasts to an ending dealing mostly in small personal experiences rather than earth shattering Revelations and “battles”. If you like this Try “So Cold the River” by Michael Kortya and “The Lost Causes of Bleek Creek” by Rhett & Link
Reader John Bedford Lloyd is good but a little bland and monotone, (and there is one very noticeable edit where a line was fixed / replaced, but that just picking nits) but ultimately delivers a solid performance.
