Things fall apart, but for Father Chris Seib, they are just getting good. He has spent much of his forty-one years remaining true to his vows and serving his congregants righteously. But now that Father Jack has moved back to town, he isn’t sure how long that’s going to last. Chris has longed for Jack since they were in high school, long before they took their vows. Now being in a room with him and praying the rosary by his side, it’s all Father Chris can do to keep himself from following his passion.

When Chris’ colleague and friend commits suicide, rumors spread that the deceased had been engaging in a long-term homosexual affair. The Arch Bishop announces that all gay priests, sexually active or not, will be immediately discharged from service, sparking a witch-hunt. Now Chris and everyone in the diocese must reevaluate his devotion to the church, and to the people whose faith is in their hands.

But Father Chris can’t stop himself from the godless lust he feels. If Father Jack proclaims that those feelings are requited, all hell is sure to break loose.

Now a Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar and John Malkovich!

Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.

Something is out there . . .

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?

Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman’s breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.
