Dr. Lauren Wagner was a celebrity. She was involved with the most exciting adventure mankind had ever undertaken: a manned expedition to Mars. The whole world admired and respected her.
But Lauren knew fear. Inside—voices entreating her to love them. Outside—the mystery of the missing group that had gone before her. The dead group.
But were they simply dead? Or something else?
A haunting and unforgettable blend of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and suspense from one of America’s bestselling writers. A novel you won’t soon forget.
“I couldn’t put this book down….Pike spins…a web of horror and intrigue that encompasses Biblical and folklore origins of humanity….It is difficult to decide whether The Season of Passage should be nominated for best science fiction novel, best horror or best fantasy novel of the year. So far, it gets my votes for all three.”—Rocky Mountain News
“Much…in this rich novel is not what it appears. The furious ending satisfies as few horror novels ever do. At times, the writing is lyrical and…Proustian. Ultimately, however, Pike…creates a work and style uniquely his own. This book is one of the best I’ve ever read.”—VOYA
“This is Pike’s best book to date. It keeps you turning pages constantly until the last one and then wishing there were more.”—The Herald-Bloomingdale
