Darcy Coates brings you a brand-new horror novel that'll take your breath away... From Below is:Perfect for fans of Jennifer McMahon and Wendy WebbFor lovers of ghost stories and anyone mesmerized by the depths of the ocean—and what hides in the darkness
No light. No air. No escape.
Hundreds of feet beneath the ocean's surface, a graveyard waits...
Years ago, the SS Arcadia vanished without a trace during a routine voyage. Though a strange, garbled emergency message was broadcast, neither the ship nor any of its crew could be found. Sixty years later, its wreck has finally been discovered more than three hundred miles from its intended course...a silent graveyard deep beneath the ocean's surface, eagerly waiting for the first sign of life.
Cove and her dive team have been granted permission to explore the Arcadia's rusting hull. Their purpose is straightforward: examine the wreck, film everything, and, if possible, uncover how and why the supposedly unsinkable ship vanished.
But the Arcadia has not yet had its fill of death, and something dark and hungry watches from below. With limited oxygen and the ship slowly closing in around them, Cove and her team will have to fight their way free of the unspeakable horror now desperate to claim them.
Because once they're trapped beneath the ocean's waves, there's no going back.

This is an incredibly creepy story. It starts at the slow build the quickly accelerates to a fast pace. I honestly loved it. The characters are easy to relate to you in the plot was excellent!
I love Darcy Coates - I think she is to horror what Ruth Ware is to thriller. Coates always deliveries solid scary stories, but with a satisfying ending. I loved how From Below was different than any other scary story I've ever read. The whole book had me on edge, and I truly did not know what to expect. I felt claustrophobic every time they went into the deep water to the Arcadia. I was disappointed in how the characters felt a little flat. They didn't have deep backstories, so it was difficult to understand the full extent of their motivations. I think the map of the ship could have been introduced earlier, because the whole book I wondered why they wouldn't have something like that memorized, especially if there was grave danger on the chance they got lost.
This book was so unexpectedly good. I found myself getting goosebumps every now and then, I literally couldn’t put this down, I read it in a day
I’ve never had a book scare me before, but From Below left me absolutely terrified. This is one of the best paranormal horror stories I’ve ever read, and I’ve read everything Darcy Coates has ever written. The amount of detail makes everything feel so real and believable, like you’re right there on the Arcadia with Cove and her crew. It leaves you feeling claustrophobic, avoiding deep water, and maybe checking over your shoulder…
