A deadly virus and an impossible discovery unite in one enthralling can’t-miss read...
Sixteen-year-old Mia Kish has always been afraid of the dark. After all, she’s baby Mia, the one who fell down a well. That was years ago, though the darkness still haunts her. But when her classmates and teachers at ritzy Westbrook Academy start dying of old age from a bizarre and frightening virus that ages its victims years in a matter of hours, Mia becomes haunted by a lot more than the dark. Their deaths are gruesome and Mia worries she and her friends may be next. In order to survive, Mia and her small crew must break quarantine and outrun armed soldiers in hazmat suits who shoot first and ask questions later.
And there’s only one place to go—the Cave, aka Fenton Electronics. Mia knows it’s somehow connected and hopes her dad, Director of Fenton Electronics, who has always been strangely secretive about his work, has the answers she needs, and more importantly a cure to save everyone before the whole town succumbs to the mysterious virus. Unfortunately, it’s not answers Mia discovers, but something far more treacherous and impossible than even the virus itself.
A high-stakes, fast-paced adventure with imagination and heart.

When THE WELL’S END arrived, I was immediately intrigued! Check it out – a little blue vial with a note inside! Yea, really cool!Screenshot_15 I needed to know what that vial was for, and couldn’t wait to start reading it to find out! Well done my friends over at Putnam for a fantastic marketing effort! It worked!

Okay, onto the book. THE WELL’S END is what I like to refer to as a “slow burn” book. What this means is, the book brings you in right away, keeps you wanting more, but in the moments where you have to put the book down you’re okay with it because you mind is reeling trying to play out what’s coming or reliving what just happened looking for tiny clues. I couldn't possibly have enjoyed this book more, and the fact that it stayed with me even when I put it down just adds to it’s level of awesome.

If you’re looking for something new, different and packed with action to read then THE WELL’S END is for you! Told from the POV of Mia, a townie attending local Westbrook Academy we get to see the killer virus up close and personal. Literally. Mia and friends are fighting their way from the school to The Cave, where her father works and is the base of the Electric company – or is it? Mia is starting to wonder if what her dad says he does for a living is ACTUALLY what he does.

THE WELL’S END is masterful and action packed. I want to visit the crazy place in Seth Fishman’s imagination where this amazing story came from!

My words of wisdom to you before you read it: Be ready for the ending. It will leave you hanging and wanting more in all the best ways possible! And yes, despite what Goodreads says, this is a series and there will be at least one more according to author Seth Fishman and a few tweets we exchanged.
