A sinkhole is a natural phenomenon. It can happen anywhere, anytime. It drinks lakes dry, consumes jungles, and even demolishes entire mountains. You may have seen one in your street. But these things aren’t lost. They’ve simply been moved. Things are forgotten on the surface all the time. Beneath the crust, they’re always remembered.

SINK. A forgotten world. A lost world. But not for long.


I was kind of skeptical at first on reading this book but I decided to give it a try still. I was pretty impressed with the story being told. 
The world that is created below a sinkhole seemed like something you would see in a movie. 

How a simple camping trip can turn around within a blink of an eye is just crazy and the author did a great job with describing how the event happened to the world that Aaron, his mother Zoe, Cassie and her father Bryan find themselves in. They meet new people and new creatures though not everything in this new place cares for them. Will the survive? 
I did like how the characters Aaron and Cassie didn't get along it made it seem to real in a way though at times Cassie was just very annoying. 
Now you would think this story would be fast paced but it is far from it, I felt that it is kind of slow until the family found themselves in another world and that is where the pace picked up for me. 
The story starts off pretty strong Aaron's father George is working in Alaska when he disappears though years and years have passed Aaron believes him to be alive. So when his mother decides to be with Bryan Aaron is a bit hurt about it. Zoe and Bryan want to bring the kids together so they can take their relationship even further but will it work or will it go down the drain?

I do hope there is a sequel so we can more of this underground world that has been discovered, I want to know more about the mysterious people that were once there, and know if this family will ever see the top of the Earth ever again.
