Launch of the much anticipated horror novel, 'Silent Hill: Betrayal'
Prepare for the most anticipated horror novel from author, Shaun M Jooste. Based on the popular survival horror video game and film franchise 'Silent Hill', the novel takes you on a new journey set within the titular town:
Trevor wakes up from another nightmare of Silent Hill just before getting a call that the police are after him following the apparent suicide of his wife, Caroline. He barely escapes with his lover Kathy and best friend Jay Nixon, the police force hot on their tail on the dark highway. During the pursuit, a mist covers the road and a strange man with a metallic object on his head causes them to crash on the outskirts of Silent Hill.
When Trevor awakens, he finds himself alone at the scene of the accident with no knowledge of where the others are. His search for them not only reveals that the town is haunted with terrifying creatures, but is also tainted with clues of Caroline's presence. As his struggle through the misty town leads him closer to Kathy's whereabouts, Trevor learns the truth of Caroline's death. And with this knowledge, he discovers that everyone that had a part to play in her misery has been brought together to Silent Hill to account for their sins.
In the midst of the pain and the blood stands Caroline's mysterious guardian with the metallic stained pyramid on his head… and he is ready to exact justice for their betrayal…
The novel will be available in Vanilla (simply text and dogmatic ending), and Extended (text, maps, images, and 5 alternative endings for the hardcore reader / gamer) Editions.
