During a hot summer night in 1934, tragedy strikes when two local boys search for the truth behind a local legend. They stumble upon the Underground, a network of uncharted caverns just below the surface of Coal Hollow.
Time holds no sway in the Underground. People no longer age and their wounds heal as if by magic. By morning, one boy is murdered, while the other never returns home. The Underground is hidden for a reason. Certain locals want to keep their lair secret, no matter the cost.
Below a town struggling to survive both the Great Depression and the closing of the local coal mine, lives an immortal society built on the backs of slavery and pervasive immorality.

This is a very well written book, and anyone looking for an interesting story should certainly crack the cover - or start playing the audio book.
The voice actor provides a very well delivered, and engrossing element to the book. Definitely wouldn't mind listening to another work he's done.
The book had some basic elements of the time period this book was written, and the characters were fairly richly written - although near the end of the book it seemed more like the author was trying to quickly wrap up the character's storyline rather than give a satisfying ending to it.
The only way this book could have been more enjoyable is if it had never been written, let alone published.
I can not even comprehend how a book this horrible could even be conceived. It feels so over done and the author just went to far. Just listening to it made me ill. I will never read anything else by this author. Disappointing and disgusting doesn't even begin to describe this "book".
