I give it - 4/5
My review - What an amazing, gripping, page-turner! I will warn you if you start reading this book before bed you won't be getting any sleep! You will be gripped and just want to carry on reading and reading. The premises is intriguing and I really enjoyed where the author went with this story.
The book is set in Arizona's Grand Canyon. A team of mystery hunters finally have the chance to go and explore an elusive cave that was discovered over 100 years ago after a successful social media following. The cave is said to hold wonders untold but, are they prepared for what they might find?
Nolan and his team are ready to find something, anything. Their reputation relays on it. They are down on their luck and always searching but, never finding. After 2 days of nothing they start to loose hope but, something happens. They find it. The excitement is real and they can't believe their luck but, soon they will wish they never found it as it slowly starts to turn into a nightmare they wish they could wake up from.
This book is filled with a wonderful bunch of characters that are all different in their own way and have something to contribute to the story. This book is well written, gripping and fun! It went a way that I was not expecting and I just really enjoyed every second of it.
Link is a fish out of water. Newly arrived from America, he is finding it hard to settle into the venerable and prestigious Osney School. Who knew there could be so many strange traditions to understand? And what kind of school ranks its students by how fast they can run round the school quad - however ancient that quad may be?
When Link runs the slowest time in years, he immediately becomes the butt of every school joke. And some students are determined to make his life more miserable than others . . .
When a school summer trip is offered, Link can think of nothing worse than spending voluntary time with his worst tormentors. But when his parents say he can only leave Osney School - forever - if he goes on the trip, Link decides to endure it for the ultimate prize. But this particular trip will require a very special sort of endurance.
The saying goes 'No man is an island' - but what if on that island is a group of teenagers, none of whom particularly like each other?
When oppressive heat, hunger and thirst start to bite, everyone's true colours will be revealed. Let the battle commence . . .
