I’m not crazy about confined spaces so I don’t get the desire to crawl into caves. The thought of tons of earth above me makes me shiver. And having a wacky cult kidnap me, dragging me deep into the cave system, is the stuff of nightmares.
This thriller wasn’t packed with action. It was subtle, just like the cult was with luring the happy couple into their trap. The tribe thought cutting themselves off from humanity was a good thing. But they couldn’t hide from it. It came with them. The jealousy, insecurity, anger. All of it followed them down the hole.
And the bad times grew for Kate and Jeremy as time blurred their past lives and they started to succumb to life in the cave. It was almost like brain washing. Sooner or later they would give in and accept their fate. The author did this part really well. It felt so real as both of them caught themselves falling for the fantasy, shook it off, and fell for it again. It was becoming easier for them to forget their past than to hope for escape.
Somewhere Down There reads at a steady pace. It’s a solid psychological thriller that grows on you, keeping you eager to find out who would survive and how it would end.

Jeremy and Karen have a date set to go spelunking in a more experienced level cave with two other couples. After one couple gets sick, they call to cancel and then the other one does the same shortly after...more out of nerves then sickness. Jeremy is still determined to make a cave outing, but against Karen's fears, she agrees to go to a beginner's level cave without a third partner...a complete disregard of the rules outlined among the safety code of cave exploration. After they get there, they are relieved to find another car, meaning that another couple is down there somewhere and they are not alone. Jeremy and Karen start heading down and meet the couple, but as it turns out they are on their way out. That is when they meet Abraham, a man that sneaks up on them and tells them about the village below the first level of the cave. Karen, again has her fears and suspicion, but Jeremy is all for a story...being a reporter for a small newspaper in Baltimore. She agrees to go down just to see and then come back up after he gets everything for his story. But, Abraham has a different perspective of his new guests...the newest members of his village perhaps. In an attempt to further the survival of his people (his sick people), he has a secret agenda to keep them down there for good. What can Jeremy and Karen do to escape? With no one knowing where they are...except for the couple who they briefly met on their way out of the cave, it is a lost cause? Will they die down there or worse, become like the people who have lost their eyesight, become infertile, and have to succumb to permanent darkness.
Widrew has a superb story-line and exceptional character development. All of her characters have such depth that will intrigue the reader and allow them to feel emotions like sympathy, hope, and determination. The pace is absolutely terrific; it is fast-paced with a thrilling aspect. Widrew banks on the common fears that originally comes to people who explore caves, so her explanations and convictions within the story are very original and creative. There are little to no errors in the context, which make it that much more enjoyable for the reader. If you are a reader of suspense, psychological thrillers and adventure, you may want to pick this one up.
