The Luminous Dead
Why this book?
This book is a tension-rife delight, about a woman who descends deep into a dangerous network of caves in search of people who died there years ago—and her only guide is a woman miles away, unfriendly and not to be trusted. I loved the tension in this book, never knowing what would happen next, what might jump out of the shadows, the mystery of her hostile guide, and what happened long ago. The slow burn relationship between two tough women used to making it on their own and not relying on others. It's the kind of book you would love to see made into a movie just so more people could enjoy the story.
