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 loved the premise of this book. I am a fan of horror movies, especially found-footage style, so this seemed like my kind of story.

The setting was great! The present-day abandoned village was eerie and intriguing at the same time, and I appreciated the time jumps back and forth between the present day and the village’s past. The suspense kept me reading late into the night, and I wound up finishing the book in a couple of days.

The ending really didn’t work for me though. It left me with a lot more questions than answers, and overall was too unsatisfying for me to love the book.
