Publisher Description

National Bestseller

A supernatural force—set in motion a century ago—threatens to devastate New York City in this “terrific horror/suspense/disaster novel” that “grips from the first page” (Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author).

Far upstate, in New York’s 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 that’s what the politicians from Manhattan insisted at the time. The local families, settled there since America’s founding, were forced from their land, but some didn’t leave…

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. A dark prophecy remained, too, and the time has come for it to be fulfilled—for sacrifices must be made. And as the dark waters begin to inexorably rise, the demand for a fresh sacrifice emerges from the deep…

“A must read for fans of eerie, gripping storytelling” (Dean Koontz, #1 New York Times bestselling author), The Chill is “a creepy tale of supernatural terror” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Not Bad…

So I got this book baswd off a recommendation by Stephen King on twitter. And Being that the man is amazing at what he does, I was excited to read this one. That being said, I think the book is pretty decent…its just very slow paced for not that much of a payoff and a bit of a rushed climax that wasn’t that scary.

Interesting story

I’m an avid reader with lots of different subject interests.
This was a good story. Probably make a good movie as well. Suspense & a dash of horror.
I was a bit put off when the author felt the need to bring in an aged & racist stereotype situation regarding mountain folk. Especially since it only consisted of less than a chapter and had no real bearing on the story. I read tons of books to forget for a moment what’s going on in the world today.
