Rating - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

'"Documentary filmmaker Alice Lindstedt has been obsessed with the vanishing residents of the old mining town, dubbed “The Lost Village,” since she was a little girl. In 1959, her grandmother’s entire family disappeared in this mysterious tragedy, and ever since, the unanswered questions surrounding the only two people who were left—a woman stoned to death in the town center and an abandoned newborn—have plagued her. She’s gathered a small crew of friends in the remote village to make a film about what really happened.

But there will be no turning back.

Not long after they’ve set up camp, mysterious things begin to happen. Equipment is destroyed. People go missing. As doubt breeds fear and their very minds begin to crack, one thing becomes startlingly clear to Alice:

They are not alone.

They’re looking for the truth…

But what if it finds them first?"


The Lost Village is a standalone mystery thriller novel by Camilla Sten.

While this didn't throw any punches in terms of twists, I did enjoy this and think that it brings up a lot of conversations involving mental health. The only thing that held me back while reading this was something that I just don't personally like to read about. To avoid spoilers, don't read past this point.

Overall though, this is a solid mystery thriller book.

Spoilers Ahead









I hate religious extremism, and you know right away when the new pastor strolls into town that he was not going to be a good guy. First of all, his name is Mattias which is very much so a villain name. Second of all, he was constantly described as being charming and was able to pull people in, which gives off either cult leader or serial killer vibes (or both).
