An incredibly creepy and effective standalone novel that I read through in one sitting . . . A chillingly effective and haunting tale (Sci-Fi Bulletin)
The White Road is a roller-coaster ride with intriguing psychological depth (Crime Fiction Lover)
Lotz knows how to develop suspense and horror . . . Dark and unsettling, Lotz's latest taps into, and exploits, our deepest fears (Kirkus Reviews)
The White Road will creep under your skin . . . Lotz has cemented herself as one of my favourite horror authors with this book. The characters are real and fascinating. The book is just downright creepy! I love it! The dark sense of humour that is layered throughout is one of the things that makes her work so memorable and enjoyable for me . . . I really can't recommend this book enough. ***** (The Speculative Herald)
Lotz excels at making you feel like you're there and her flawed lead sympathetic. Fans of Dan Simmons's The Terror will be pleased (Publishers Weekly)
Sarah Lotz's descriptions of the oppressive darkness and unbearably cramped spaces stirred up some of my deepest fears . . . A master of the horror genre, Sarah Lotz's talents were especially in clear evidence in this novel with its atmosphere of tangible suspense and pure, icy terror. Thoroughly entertaining and astonishingly realistic, The White Road is a gripping, high-climbing thriller that will creep its way under your skin and stay with you for a very long time (. . . like fingers in your heart) (The Biblio Sanctum)
Death waits at the top of the world in this adrenaline-laced thriller from Sarah Lotz, perfect for anyone who loves the film The Descent or John Krakauer's book Into Thin Air.See all Product description

The book is split into three parts. It begins with a tightly written, claustrophobic beginning telling of Simon's adventure in a cave in Wales, followed by an absorbing and exciting account of Simon's time on Everest, which is peopled with interesting secondary characters. The third section of the book, however, is a dull, depressing descent into apathy and mental issues, which drags and drags. I assumed it was going to lead to an exciting climax and some answers as to what exactly was going on in Simon's head, but instead the book just ends, as if the author decided not to bother writing the final part. I understand leaving a sense of mystery and why an author might leave a book open ended for people to make their own decisions, but it still felt like there should have been another large section on Simon's return to Everest.
Overall this book is very well written in parts, but the characters are unappealing, even Simon himself, and its lasting impression on me was dismal and irritating.
