Book Giveaway: The Silent Land by Graham Joyce

We are giving away one hardcover copy of The Silent Land by Graham Joyce to one lucky winner!

The Silent Land by Graham Joyce

Award-winning novelist and cult favorite Graham Joyce transports readers to a mysterious world of isolation and fear with a hypnotically dark story about a young couple trapped by an avalanche in the remote French Alps . . . a daring and powerful novel about love, loss, and rebirth. In the French Alps around Chamonix, a young married couple is buried under a flash avalanche while skiing. Miraculously, Jake and Zoe dig their way out from under the snow—only to discover the world they knew has been overtaken by an eerie and absolute silence. Their hotel is devoid of another living soul. Cell phones and land lines are cut off. An evacuation as sudden and thorough as this leaves Jake and Zoe to face a terrifying situation alone. They are trapped by the storm, completely isolated, with another catastrophic avalanche threatening to bury them alive . . . again. And as the couple begin to witness unset­tling events neither one can ignore, they are forced to con­front a frightening truth about the silent land they now inhabit.

  2. Reading the first blurb, Stephen King's, The Shining, popped in my mind. I love a good suspense so intend to check this book out further.

    This is on my to be read list, I haven't heard of this author before, but I definitely have the author on my radar now. The whole premise of survivors and end of the world type fiction is fascinating to me. It does make me think of the Overlook and The Shining, as a previous poster mentioned. Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  22. I would love to win this one. Sounds great! Am a follower. Thanks for the giveaway. :)

  23. The premise definitely has me interested. I can almost imagine the tension of finding yourselves alone in the world. The personal interplay alone is probably fraught with tension and little hatreds :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!


  24. Just read an small part of chapter one and I'm hooked. Zoe and Zack should be very scared and the question remains< "Are they really alone?"
