About the Book

Lost meets Stranger Things in this eerie, immersive YA thriller, thrusting seventeen-year-old Sia into a reality where the waters in front of her and the jungle behind her are as dangerous as the survivors alongside her. Audiofile said of the audio edition, "Dolandis's subtle performance creates a heightened sense of terror. The sequences detailing Sia's deep ocean dives will have listeners holding their breath."

Sia practically grew up in the water scuba diving, and wreck dives are run of the mill. Take the tourists out. Explore the reef. Uncover the secrets locked in the sunken craft. But this time … the dive goes terribly wrong.

Attacked by a mysterious creature, Sia’s boat is sunk, her customers are killed, and she washes up on a deserted island with no sign of rescue in sight. Waiting in the water is a seemingly unstoppable monster that is still hungry. In the jungle just off the beach are dangers best left untested. When Sia reunites with a handful of survivors, she sees it as the first sign of light.

Sia is wrong.

Between the gulf of deadly seawater in front of her and suffocating depth of the jungle behind her, even the island isn’t what it seems.

Haunted by her own mistakes and an inescapable dread, Sia’s best hope for finding answers may rest in the center of the island, at the bottom of a flooded sinkhole that only she has the skills to navigate. But even if the creature lurking in the depths doesn’t swallow her and the other survivors, the secrets of their fractured reality on the island might.

Reviews

An escapist thriller that will reel readers right in. (Science fiction thriller. 13-18) - Kirkus

'The story evolves into one of the best examples of science fiction, as it encompasses so many facets of the genre. It's perfect for readers who enjoyed Deep Water by Watt Key or episodes of Stranger Things. The deep-sea diving is truly frightening, but Sia's love for her family and hope for the future make her a character to love.' -Manhattan Book Review

'Narrator Chloe Dolandis keeps the tension high in this creepy YA thriller. Sia Gianopoulos has diving in her blood. After a charter dive goes wrong and the boat is wrecked by a monstrous creature, Sia washes up on an island with a handful of survivors and a lot of questions. Dolandis nails the pacing that is key to this type of story. The mystery plays out slowly enough to build the suspense to a fever pitch, then goes into overdrive for the action. As Sia dictates letters telling the story to her incarcerated father, Dolandis's subtle performance creates a heightened sense of terror. The sequences detailing Sia's deep ocean dives will have listeners holding their breath--and maybe wanting to give it a try.' -- Audiofile Magazine
