Ten years ago, disaster struck the remote town of Indigo Falls. A horrific event drove the residents underground, into shelters that keep them safe from the danger on the surface. No one speaks about what happened that fateful day, but even the youngest still remember the fear and, most of all, the searing pain when sunlight touched their skin. Now, a handfull of families inhabit this bunker together, guided by a charismatic leader named Dr. Imogen Moran. There are many rules Dr. Moran has instilled to govern life belowground. You must always tell the truth. You must avoid the light of the sun. You must never touch skin to skin.

But are they telling the truth when they tell you what’s REALLY going on out there? This book is very creepy and I love it, it certainly held my attention. I love the characters. The 3 main characters all have very distinct personalities. I wish we could have got to know Sash a little more. While we find out pretty quickly that she is a fearless, strong character, we don’t really find out what her interests are beyond that. Yuna and Gabe have more subdued personalities but strong interests. They all worked so great together. I do wish there was a longer epilogue though. I want the details of what happened. 10 years spent in a bunker completely isolated from the outside world. Poor Lucas doesn’t even remember what being outside is like. What would it be like to experience the endless world and sky when your whole life has been spent in a small, completely enclosed space with no windows? What exactly ARE the things that are encountered on the outside? Why? How? While things are explained, I wish they were explained MORE.

    Jessica (a GREAT read)

    I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review. Melissa Grey’s latest novel, The Buried had all the makings of dark and creepy story with the possibility of monsters to boot! Though it was a dark story, it wasn’t all I thought it would be. I was hoping for something more with horror and a side of mystery what I got was the opposite, more mystery with a touch of horror. So not the creepy read I was hoping for, but I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review. Melissa Grey’s latest novel, The Buried had all the makings of dark and creepy story with the possibility of monsters to boot! Though it was a dark story, it wasn’t all I thought it would be. I was hoping for something more with horror and a side of mystery what I got was the opposite, more mystery with a touch of horror. So not the creepy read I was hoping for, but still intriguing enough. We have three teenagers from three different families all living underground in a bunker of sorts. There was an event seven years ago or so that basically destroyed humanity and it was with luck that these families and their benefactor, Ms. Moran survived. But something is happening, now Sash is beginning to question everything she’s been taught over the years and her friends, Yuna and Gabe are questioning things too, while their families are happy accepting everything at face value. For whatever reason, everyone stays underground, only Moran goes up…up there to the world that was destroyed, looking for survivors or supplies. There’s only one hazmat suit and she takes on the burden herself. Which honestly, that itself was pretty telling. Then one day, Gabe uncovers something in the maps he has that details their underground bunker, a tunnel that leads to above, not the one Moran uses on the regular. So the three friends decide to go up and explore and what they find is puzzling and frightening. I guess my first issue with this was that it wasn’t the super scary story I was hoping for! I mean that cover is downright chilling, so I was expecting a story that would chill me to the bones! Sadly, this wasn’t it. The mystery element was still done very well and I was able to figure things out very early on. I mean it was my first suspicion and it proved correct! The whys behind it all were what I had to wait for and they were just as blasé as I expected them to be. I mean when dealing with evil villains do you really expect anything else? The story alternates between the three friends. They’re all of different cultures and ethnicities which I found to be nice. And there’s a bit of romance going on between Yuna and Sash. Gabe was your odd man out, but he just wanted his friends to be happy together, so that was a nice factor too. What sort of blew my mind were the harsh rules that Moran put into place. No touching and always wear your gloves were two of the main ones. I guess she wasn’t wanting to help further mankind since they were the only ones left. There was the risk of losing their supplies; food and water and the like. Moran’s family was pretty much prepared for the worst with their bunker, it had me thinking of that old Brendan Fraser movie where he grew up in a bomb shelter and when it opens he finds the world is very different from what his parents talked about. Parts of the ending are another thing that upset me about this one. Ignoring the lack of monsters and other dark paranormal entities, I found what happened with the teens to be a bit sad when it came to their families. I guess there was a hive mentality going on that superseded family. That’s all I’ll say on that. The ending itself though was about what you would expect it to be once the ball got rolling on the grand finale. While The Buried wasn’t all I was hoping it to be, it was still a pretty decent read. I just felt like it needed a little more depth and a few more monsters and other dark things wouldn’t have hurt either. Definitely something mystery fans would enjoy as well as this had a richly woven mystery hiding in its layers. It’s a read that will definitely have you questioning certain things about apocalypses and hive-mind mentality too. Overall Rating 2.5/5 stars The Buried releases September 7, 2021

I swear I've changed the rating from four starts to three about a thousand times already. So let's just settle at three and a half stars. This was a delightfully claustrophobic read. You'll meet our three protagonists, Gabe, Sash and Yuna. They all live in a bunker deep under the earth, governed by someone named Dr Moran. They've lived there for years, following strict rules: no touching each other; no speaking about the past or what happened to force them to shelter; and, above all, no leaving the bunker. From the first few pages, the reader can feel that there's something not quite right about that situation. Dr Moran is dangerously strict, the rules weirdly specific, and way too many things are kept secret. So the three friends decide to investigate. If this reminds you of Cloverfield Lane, that's because it's quite a lot like it! The first half of the book was a bit too slow for me; of course, there's a need to show us what's happening, make us feel how claustrophobic life is in the bunker, but still... You can most definitely feel that something is wrong, and with the chapters dragging without any answer, it does make you lose interest just a tiny bit. It all picks up halfway through, when the three heroes make a big decision and change everything. It's hard to explain what happens without spoiling everything, but suddenly, everything changes very fast, and answers start coming. It's, quite honestly, pretty easy to figure out what is actually happening and what secrets are being kept from the first few chapters, but it doesn't really spoil the book; you still get the shock factor of the characters finding out what was hidden from them, and how to deal with it. In addition, there's quite a nice gory factor, for those who like that sort of thing (I do). All in all, it's a solid horror/thriller novel for young adults, though I feel it could have been made better by making it a bit faster in the first few chapters.

    2.5* I listened to this on audiobook and it was a great listen. If I had been physically reading it, I may have gotten a little bored waiting for things to happen. But the narrator kept me interested throughout and I felt it was ultimately paced well-enough.

    I found the book slow, and I also had a hard time understanding the story. It got confusing as it switched between 3 people (Gabe, Sash and Yuma.) I did find the ending more packed and faster paced.

There were some kind of confusing bits that could have made more sense. Like, how did Moran create the monsters? And why was the Cataclysm even started? So that’s why it’s only four stars.

Was this just a run-of-the-mill cult where Dr. Moran pretended the world had ended but it actually hadn't? Had the apocalypse happened, but Dr. Moran ran the bunker like a cult? Or was it more survivalist less cultish? I got some answers right off the bat while I had to wait longer for others. I knew immediately that this was definitely something cultish. Dr. Moran has some very specific rules that aren't based in epidemiology (for example, people can't touch skin-to-skin). She is super creepy, and has the families repeat some weird stuff. So then I wanted to know more about the world outside the bunker. Lucky for me, the three main characters were pretty curious too. Melissa Grey does a great job of keeping the reader in suspense, while slowly dripping information like an IV. In the end, I felt satisfied with the explanation for events and how the story ended. I'm someone who always wants more information, so I would happily take some more technical description of what happened, but enough has been explained to serve the story. One last thing. This book is definitely on the creepy side, so maybe don't make the decision I did to stay up late to finish it.

Suddenly, things start going awry, more often and more severely than ever before. Dr. Moran seems unphased, but the three teenagers begin to worry. What's happening in the bunker? How much longer will they last? This story was incredible. I loved every part of it. The pace was satisfying, the suspense was incredible, and every cliffhanger left me reaching for more. The characters were written realistically, as was the queer representation. Even better was that the characters made me feel real human emotions!! Dr. Moran's personality made me mad, Yuna's expression of her feelings made me sympathize, and Sash's rebellious actions made me oddly proud. Everything about the characters just screamed amazing! I honestly have nothing bad to say about this book. I would recommend it to older or more mature middle school students, most high school students, and mystery and horror lovers. As long as you don't get spooked easily, I think that you should run not walk to your nearest bookstore and snatch this incredible piece of art off the shelves.

I haven’t heard other narrators nail that frantic energy like she did. I could feel my heart rate change with the infliction of panic in her voice. Not quite horror, but almost there, the story was just gorey and scary enough to satisfy. It is a really original idea for a storyline and would translate well into a movie

    The story concept was great, and I enjoyed the dynamic between the three main characters. The pacing, too, was well done. But I wished there was more explanation as to exactly why and how the antagonist did what they did, as well as more development of the minor characters.

    I really liked how the story developed, I think it has a good pace. I found the plot much more interesting than the characters, which in this case were fine but none, in particular, caught my attention. The first chapters introduce you to life in bunkers, an underground life. The air system, water recycling, animals, crops that grow without sunlight... Such a life seems possible, but the book makes us fear what would happen if resources ran out and they are forced to go up.

Now I’ve to bring a comparison that seemed inevitable to me because both books have many similarities, and I’m talking about Maze Runner. Different concepts and genres, but both with a group of people locked in an area fearing what lurks outside, one day part of the group goes out and bad things start to happen, the conditions of the area change and alert everyone, people locked up as part of an experiment, a world ruined by natural disasters and pollution, and it goes on and on.

    The 3 characters/pov were okay. I liked the claustrophobic feeling I had from reading this book. But right away, you could tell there was something off about Moran. My biggest issue is no prologue existing. I would love to know how this cataclysm happened, what led up to it, how these certain people got into the bunker. My other issue was the very brief epilogue. Barely any details were given. It felt rushed.

    The 3 leads were OK. The rest of the book??? The plot was derivative and predictable. The main antagonist was pasted from a hundred stories of fanatics. The adults were beyond stupid. There was a lack of clarification, both during and at the end. Yeah, I can easily fill in my own version, but I like for authors to show what they are thinking.

However it was a little slow paced and the characters were a little flat . Its still a good book just not great . It was a fun and interesting read especially now with the pandemic we've had it has more effect now then if there was no pandemic that we where facing at all .

    It’s very surreal to me for all the new books these days to mention the Corona Virus. But in reality, all the new books these days were written at the height of the pandemic. Sadly, many of the plot lines reflect the frustration and emotions of being in lock down for so long. This one was no different, but it was done in a crazy pshycho killer cult leader with “monsters” kind of way. Therefore, I loved it!

    Three stars seems low, for me at least, but let me explain. I enjoyed the book while I was reading until it just...ended. There's more story here that needs to be told. I also felt I had met these characters before and they lacked depth. It was a fast, entertaining read but I would go back to it and probably won't really remember it for very long.

    I'd give this book a solid 3 stars (maybe even 3.5) if it weren't for the questions that went unanswered, which left the book not feeling as completed as I hoped. Still a mysterious and creepy read, certainly some hooking parts, but the lack of answers bugged me. That said...I can still appreciate a damn good cover when I see it.

    It’s good! Full of suspenseful, terrifying moments where it was hard to not look ahead so I wouldn’t be scared. A great concept! But during the last 25% of the book it felt rushed and it turned away from the theme and style and started to feel almost campy. While it did not make the cut as books I’d read again I still recommend giving it a read!

Could definitely see this as a movie.
