The oasis saved them. But who will save them from the oasis?
Alif had exciting summer plans: working on her father’s archaeological dig site in the desert with four close friends . . . and a very cute research assistant. Then the sandstorm hit.
With their camp wiped away, Alif and the others find themselves lost on the sands, seemingly doomed . . . until they find the oasis. It has everything they need: food, water, shade—and mysterious ruins that hide a deadly secret. As reality begins to shift around them, they question what’s real and what’s a mirage.
The answers turn Alif and her friends against one another, and they begin to wonder if they’ve truly been saved. And while it was easy to walk into the oasis, it may be impossible to leave . . .
Katya de Becerra’s new supernatural thriller hides a mystery in plain sight, and will keep you guessing right up to its terrifying conclusion.
OASIS features people lost in the desert, in an immensity of sand that never ends. That is, until they find a luscious oasis, thus the title. But is it real or not? This mind-bending novel will keep you guessing, double guessing, and triple guessing. The book will also make you think hard and surprise you with a lot of crazy twists.
Overall, an engaging novel that kept my interest from the very interesting introduction to the craziness of the oasis.
