The Blair Witch Project
meets Midsommar in this brilliantly disturbing thriller from Camilla Sten, an electrifying new voice in suspense.

Documentary filmmaker Alice Lindstedt has been obsessed with the vanishing residents of the old mining town, dubbed “The Lost Village,” since she was a little girl. In 1959, her grandmother’s entire family disappeared in this mysterious tragedy, and ever since, the unanswered questions surrounding the only two people who were left—a woman stoned to death in the town center and an abandoned newborn—have plagued her. She’s gathered a small crew of friends in the remote village to make a film about what really happened.

But there will be no turning back.

Not long after they’ve set up camp, mysterious things begin to happen. Equipment is destroyed. People go missing. As doubt breeds fear and their very minds begin to crack, one thing becomes startlingly clear to Alice:

They are not alone.

They’re looking for the truth…
But what if it finds them first?

Come find out.

Where did they go?

A abandoned village sits on the other side of dense patch of forest. For more than 60 years, it has been left to rot into the earth under a heavy cloud of where did the 900+ residents disappear.

Four young documentarians travel to the village in hopes to uncover the shroud of mystery of The Lost Village. The story advances between the days leading-up to the towns demise in the 1950's through the 5-days the groups attempts to film. The doomed film crew unravels a haunting tale mixed with ravenous religious undertones, death and a creepiness that gets under your skin. The reader will want to unearth the "what happened" to them.

The reviews are accurate, it is a mix of the Blair Witch Project and Midsommar. It is not a mystery rather horror. Don't be too terrified its scary.

Thank you NetGalley and Minotaur Books for the ARC for an honest review.

Good title

Very engaging. Hard to put down.

ledoss ,

Insanity at it’s finest. Excellent read.

Insanity at it’s finest. Excellent read, with an expected twist. Told in two time frames with insanity, disparity, angst, mystery, drama and a cold calculation from the past and perhaps a small amount in the present. An interesting twisted story.
