Thanks Wednesday Books and Netgalley for this eARC, these opinions are my own. I absolutely loved this book so much I read it all in one day! I just couldn’t put it down! Have you ever wished your secrets could die? Sam and his friends have found a way to allow this to happen. A remote dwelling where one by one they go is and whisper their secrets aloud, they call it the Dark Place. It’s freeing to get away from the guilt, fear, and pain their secrets bring. That is until someone starts using their secrets against them. How is that possible? No one knows about the Dark Place right? And how far will they go to keep their secrets? There were twists on top of twists, secrets, revenge, tension and intrigue, this book had it all! Definitely a favorite Vincent Ralph book! If you like twisty mysteries that’ll have you needing to know more then I highly recommend this book! Can’t wait for it to come out!

Everyone has secrets. Wouldn't be wonderful to have a safe place to set them free? The Dark Place was that until someone found out your secrets. Someone who is watching everyone. Do you stand up to them or give in?
Great read. I thought I knew who was behind it. I was so wrong. A book that keeps you guessing.
Thank you, Vincent Ralph. Thank you, NetGalley and publishers.

If you're a fan of YA Mystery Thrillers that will keep you guessing until the end, I would recommend reading "Secrets Never Die" .

Once a year a group of friends meet at The Dark Place to confess their deepest secrets. They're suppose to leave feeling unburdened but this year the unthinkable has happened, someone not only knows about their ritual but also all of their secrets too. Now they must work together to figure out whose pulling the strings while dealing with exposed secrets, lies and betrayals that threaten to tear their friendship apart.

The author crafted a suspenful plotline with some twists and turns that I didn't expect. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Thank you Vincent Ralph, Net Galley and St. Martin's Press - Wednesday Books for providing me with an ARC of this book!

I loved this book so much! I really didn’t know what it was about when I started reading it, but I quickly was obsessed! The characters are well developed, and I couldn’t help but love them all!

Oh my gosh, this book is soooooooo good.

The story as so unique and original, the plotting was superb and the characterizations were excellent. But without doubt, the best part was the dialogue; it was realistic, hilarious and spot on. It made reading this corker so, so enjoyable.

I gobbled this up in a day. I couldn't put it down!

This book was so good! I didn’t want to put it down, and I completely loved the characters and all of the secrets that they held. I love the multi generational aspect, and how detailed but not over done everything wise. This was a wonderful story, and it kept me guessing to the very end! I would love to see a follow up to this book to know what happens next, I felt like the author left potential for more in a series. I promptly signed up for his email list, because this book was absolutely phenomenal!

thank you netgalley for the advanced readers copy!!! :)

Vincent Ralph does it again. I read 14 Ways To Die a couple months ago and was in awe so I was so eager to read this one. I just love his writing style! This is definitely a book you can read in one sitting because you’re always left at the end of each chapter wanting more! The characters were enjoyable and I really loved the eeriness/spookiness of this one too! Sometimes I forgot I was reading a YA book. Definitely a book I will be recommending!!!

This was another great book from Vincent Ralph, it had what I enjoyed from other books. The characters were what I was looking for and it worked in the thriller genre. I was invested in what was going on and really enjoyed reading this.

"Haran and Elisha both think Dom is bad news, and they’re right. And yet: Dom saw me at my most broken and found a way to help. He took me to the Dark Place. He might blow hot and cold, but we have history. He was a bully, although never to me. He’d picked a few wide-eyed kids and made their lives worse for two horrible semesters. He was sly about it, though. Parents think he’s the nicest kid in school."

So this was definitely one of those books that I thought I had it all figured out, but I could not have been more wrong. In the middle of this book there is a massive plot twist that I never saw coming and made the book even cool and more interesting. Halloween has always been a special time for this group of friends, their chance to go to the dark place and let out their secrets and start the year oh fresh. However where they were that someone may have been listening to their secrets things will never be the same. Friendships and families will be broken and who knows if they’ll ever get the trust back. This was a great read and really kept me on the edge of my seat
