What they discover, however, is that they are not alone. There are other survivors in this subterranean grotto–survivors spanning decades of maritime disasters.
Will this discovery prove salvation, or have they all been condemned to the same fate? A grim finale at the bottom of the sea?On an alliance forged by friendship and attraction, Stella and Colin battle to escape the danger that lies beneath. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This isn’t an original plot, but Miller has made it hers! With so many unanswered questions and twist throughout this story, I couldn’t put it down. The many characters are developed throughout the story in a way that allows the story to unfold with new information on every page.
In addition to being a page-turner, Beneath adds so many unexpected aspects there are surprises everywhere. It’s had to elaborate without spoilers. Trust me when I say Beneath is a MUST READ for lovers of all genres! I can’t wait to start on the next book, and you will feel the same! I highly recommend this 5-star book!
