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?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
As some who is obsessed with real life documentaries about ghostly places or long lost places, I was super excited to get the chance to read this one. I was very pleased with the outcome! I was instantly pulled in, kept up late into the night, and wasn’t let go until I reached the very end! That’s some amazing writing style to do that to me.

This novel is phenomenally created. The chilling  thrills, the creepily eery twists, the amazing characters, the page turning plot line……it’s all absolutely gripping. I found myself on the edge of my seat, then under my covers. It was such a wild time!

I definitely can’t wait for more by this truly talented author. She knows just what her fans will like! Horror and pyschological thriller fans alike will absolutely devour this 4 star read. Bone chilling and roller coaster heart pounding, this is one read I won’t soon forget!

About Camilla Sten

Camilla Sten is a writer, and her publisher made the mistake of letting her set this author page up by herself. She is best known for her internationally bestselling novel “The Lost Village”, which has sold to 19 countries, and has written books ranging from YA fantasy to contemporary thrillers.

Camilla lives in Sweden with her American boyfriend and two fluffy, evil cats. She is quite enjoying talking about herself in the third person, and might keep it going after she’s submitted this author bio.
