Overview

18-year-old Rachel Thyme has been handed the opportunity of a lifetime when she joins an archaeological dig off the coast of Australia. Eager to have some experience under her belt, she doesn’t question the rumors the locals tell of the previous archaeology crews and the haunting disappearances. She ignores the first signs that something is wrong when her crewmates begin to do strange things, that propel them deeper into the bowels of Black Forest Island. But she can hardly write off discovery after discovery that lead her to confront a long-hidden tomb that makes her question what she thinks she knows about the supernatural.

Rachel wants nothing more than to prove herself on this excursion, especially as it was her daddy’s money that helped her land this job, and as she makes friends, and even sees a little romance, she discovers horrors she can hardly imagine, from evil slowly awakening around her, to the hidden demons locked in her past.

"The Tomb" is a stand-alone prequel to the "Hunters of the Dark" paranormal fantasy series.

    Review of The Tomb by Dave Ferraro Reviewed for We ¿ YA Books!

    Review of The Tomb by Dave Ferraro
    Reviewed for We ♥ YA Books!

    I received an ebook copy from Smashwords, via We ♥ YA Books! Goodreads Group in exchange for my fair and impartial review.

    I really appreciate the gentle notching of the reader’s hook accompanied by the subtle escalation of suspense. So much in this novel depends on the psychological aspect of horror, which to me is much more poignant that splattering the reader with gore. Author Dave Ferraro is well aware of the inside-and-out of his characters, drawing them deftly and empathetically. When one or more of the individuals on Black Forest Island, among the archaeological crew and support staff (the supply boat captain) begin to act “out of character,” it’s not done obviously but subtly, inspiring the reader to think about what’s happening, and why-and then the intermittent tie-ins with Rachel’s seemingly faulty memory lend yet another layer of suspense. For readers who prefer their horror flavoured with the Supernatural or paranormal, there’s plenty of that here too; but I must marvel at the psychological insights. Once again I am reminded of Henry James in “Turn of the Screw,” and Saki in “The Open Window,” because sometimes what is to be feared is within, not always external.
    I highly enjoyed and recommend this book. The author has a very smooth writing style which encourages me to go read all his other stories as well.

    Awesomely epic thrill ride that I just couldn't put it down! The Tomb
    is a paranormal thriller and is a stand-alone prequel to the Hunters of
    the Dark paranormal fantasy series written by Dave Ferraro. The Review:
    I LOVED THIS BOOK! I absolutely couldn't put it down and read through
    the night to get to the end. I had to know how it ended! So, lets get
    the techy stuff out of the way. The writing was very well done, the
    story line was clever and exciting, the characters were relatable and
    well written and it even had a bit of a scare factor to it, which is
    unusual for me since I don't scare easily. There were plenty of times in
    the story where the tensions were high and the visuals the author laid
    down, actually gave me the creeps and I LOVED it! Rachel was a terrific
    heroin. She was young but she was feisty and willful. She didn't let
    what was happening around her bog her down and keep her from going out
    and trying to work through the mystery. Her league of heroic friends was
    a great addition to the story. I loved Daniel, Lucky, Chad, Cyrena and
    all the other that were thrown into this chilling adventure. The idea
    of it all taking place at an archeological dig was a little like
    "The Exorcist", and I thought I'd be disappointed at that but
    the author does such an amazing job of not letting you get stuck on that
    fact and even goes so far as to sprinkle a handful of pop cultural
    references into the mix to poke fun at the similarities. The suspense
    and mystery of what was happening was thick and foreboding. I haven't
    read the Hunters of the Dark series in which this book is a prequel to,
    so I went in not knowing the details of what this book was about and Im
    so glad I did it that way. I was left wondering if the events unfolding
    throughout the story were the effect of demented natural human design or
    supernatural. The author does a terrific job of concealing the intent of
    the story until well over half way through the book and I found that
    thrilling because I didn't know what to expect. Something else I loved
    was the author was NOT afraid to kill, maim or bring his main characters
    to their knees! I loved that we didn't know who was going to survive,
    who the love interest would turn out to be and who was the antagonist.
    Dislikes: With all that being said, I almost hate to put any dislikes in
    this review. But there was a part of the story that just didn't fit with
    the overall theme and that was Rachel's side story. It wasn't really
    part of the overall theme, it didn't have anything to do with the
    outcome of the story and just seemed to be filler in my opinion. I
    didn't mind the content of her side story and loved the small snippets
    we get from her memories, but it just didn't go along with everything
    else that was happening and I wish it had just been left out. And
    lastly, you know that point in all horror movies where you scream at
    your characters to not separate??? Yeah, well, I was throwing a hissy
    fit! Why do they always separate? There was one point in the cave where
    two went one way and one went another and I kept saying over and over,
    "bad idea guys! Strike now!" but they never listen. Haha! The
    Wrap Up: In short, I loved this book! I'd definitely recommend this to
    my friends and anyone else who will listen ;) It was an awesome read and
    Im ready to see what happens next for Rachel and her friends. NOTE: I
    read this as a R2R with We ♥ YA Books! with Goodreads. As always, a
    special thank you to the mods and author for allowing me to participate.
