Moon Basin has been haunted for as long as anyone can remember. It started when an explosion in the mine killed sixteen people. The disaster made it impossible to live in town, with underground fires spewing ash into the sky. But life in New Basin is just as fraught. The ex-mining town relies on its haunted reputation to bring in tourists, but there’s more truth to the rumors than most are willing to admit, and the mine still has a hold on everyone who lives there.

Clem and Nina form a perfect loop—best friends forever, and perhaps something more. Their circle opens up for a strange girl named Lisey with a knack for training crows, and Piper, whose father is fascinated with the mine in a way that’s anything but ordinary. The people of New Basin start experiencing strange phenomena—sleepwalking, night terrors, voices that only they can hear. And no matter how many vans of ghost hunters roll through, nobody can get to the bottom of what’s really going on. Which is why the girls decide to enter the mine themselves.


Review

Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours and author Alison Ames for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The rest of the tour schedule can be found below!

This book is definitely a perfect book for our upcoming spooky season. Ames seems to catch the atmosphere of her story so perfectly within these pages and it conjures up so many feelings one would have if they were watching a classic spooky movies. There was so much mystery, character development, and tenseness packed into just around 300 pages but it was sooo well done. Each of the girls’s personalities stood out starkly against one another and we were truly able to see how each girl fit into their tightly knit group. The mining town setting was the perfect backdrop for the strange ordeals these friends go through. It you have been feening for some horror definitely pick this up!
