Publisher Description

Now a Netflix Original Movie!

The Ritual is Adam Nevill's horror novel depicting a group of friends lost in a remote wilderness in Sweden where something supernatural lurks.

When four old University friends set off into the Scandinavian wilderness of the Arctic Circle, they aim to briefly escape the problems of their lives and reconnect with one another. But when Luke, the only man still single and living a precarious existence, finds he has little left in common with his well-heeled friends, tensions rise. With limited experience between them, a shortcut meant to ease their hike turns into a nightmare scenario that could cost them their lives. Lost, hungry, and surrounded by forest untouched for millennia, Luke figures things couldn't possibly get any worse.

But then they stumble across an old habitation. Ancient artifacts decorate the walls and there are bones scattered upon the dry floors. The residue of old rites and pagan sacrifice for something that still exists in the forest. Something responsible for the bestial presence that follows their every step. As the four friends stagger in the direction of salvation, they learn that death doesn't come easy among these ancient trees . . .

Stellar

An incredible horror novel. Gripping all the way through.

Fantastic Read

I’ve been looking for other horror writers other than Stephen King and found a fantastic one in Adam Nevill. After watching Netflix The Ritual I found out it was a book and had to read it. I found the book was so much better as they usually are. I would have loved to have seen the book ending in the film. It was that good. Five stars for sure. Now on to The Last Days.

Should have ended at part 1

Really liked the first ~70% of the book. The writing is captivating and the story keeps you on your toes. Really enjoyed the cadence and the truly eerie vibes. But after you finish part 1 you’re left expecting an exciting climax that never comes. The story flops and the author introduces unnecessary characters and storylines that not only take away from the thrill but also deviate from the original plot. Part 2 was entirely pointless and the book left me wishing for what could have been if the author had only ended at Part 1.
