I really wanted to like this book, so much in fact, that I checked out the next book in the sequel as I really didn’t want to wait in line at the library in case someone had it in their possession. Unfortunately, I will be returning the second book to the library unread as I just can’t bring myself to read it. It’s not that this book is terrible; it’s just that there were some items inside that I found too far unbelievable and I just can’t continue. There were parts that were suspenseful and I couldn’t wait to find out what the next pages held for me and I enjoyed the author’s writing as there was just enough detail to give you a painted picture. It’s an elite boarding school, top notch students with top notched professors. Mia, a.k.a Baby Mia, the child who fell down the well and survived attends the private school and is being interviewed by Blake Sutton when her father walks in the door. There is instant tension when the two men meet, for they are previous acquaintances. Blake’s real reason for the interview was to question Mia’s father about his place of employment, Fenton Electronics. Blake has been longing to investigate this business, which is located inside a mountain a.k.a The Cave for years, and this time he has consequences if he is not successful. Mia believes her father works on classified computer code but why would Blake be so adamant about this line of work? Blake is told to leave the premises and Mia watches him from a distance as he walks away just as her father leaves to go back to work. Alarms sounds and students are told to go to the auditorium, there is something happening at the school. Mia calls her dad, what is going on? Her father informs her to leave immediately and head to The Cave. Oh, this set me up for a good afternoon read but as I continued, I thought their adventure took forever and parts were just not convincing to me. I will read more from this author as I liked the way he writes.

This book sounds a lot like Legend, and by a lot, I mean a ton.

Mia Kish is a sixteen year old girl. Years ago, she was famous for being the little girl trapped in a well. Year's later, she is a member of the swim team. Her father works at the mysterious Cave. However, a strange man her father doesn't trust begins to shadow her. Then her class mates and teachers start to age rapidly and die. Her school is surrounded by soldiers. Some how her father has something to do with this. She is certain. She and a group of friends break free and are pursued by men in hazmat suites. Their only choice now is to reach the cave and hope her father has a solution. Seth Fishman's story starts slowly at first, but the action draws the reader in and keeps them reading. At the same time their is an air of mystery. What is in this mysterious Cave and how does it tie into the virus and Mia's past?

THE WELL’S END is what I like to refer to as a “slow burn” book. What this means is, the book brings you in right away, keeps you wanting more, but in the moments where you have to put the book down you’re okay with it because you mind is reeling trying to play out what’s coming or reliving what just happened looking for tiny clues. I couldn't possibly have enjoyed this book more, and the fact that it stayed with me even when I put it down just adds to it’s level of awesome. If you’re looking for something new, different and packed with action to read then THE WELL’S END is for you! Told from the POV of Mia, a townie attending local Westbrook Academy we get to see the killer virus up close and personal. Literally. Mia and friends are fighting their way from the school to The Cave, where her father works and is the base of the Electric company – or is it? Mia is starting to wonder if what her dad says he does for a living is ACTUALLY what he does. THE WELL’S END is masterful and action packed. I want to visit the crazy place in Seth Fishman’s imagination where this amazing story came from! My words of wisdom to you before you read it: Be ready for the ending. It will leave you hanging and wanting more in all the best ways possible! And yes, despite what Goodreads says, this is a series and there will be at least one more according to author Seth Fishman and a few tweets we exchanged.
