I could not have predicted the action scenes with racing for your life kind of momentum, literally the story took me by surprise. As original and unseemly the characters who banded together were, the last few scenes were even more unexpected. There were extra horrors added to the story when the main character and friends stumbled across additional mysterious and deadly places while on their way to the final peak. I enjoyed reading this story very much and highly recommend this novel.
Later edit: I'm about halfway through Eichar's book, which was published in 2013. Mildly disturbed to find many striking similarities between Eichar's book and this, Jeremy Bates' , book, which was published in 2018. The similarities go beyond using the same limited source material, where it is expected that they would overlap quite a bit. But the decisions as to what items to emphasize and which to leave out, some striking similarities in sentence structure, and so on, left me with the strong impression that Bates didn't really bother to do his own research from the source material -- possibly just read Eichar's book and went on from there to develop his schlock horror genre ending. Nothing really wrong with that, but I've read other books about strking historical events where the source material is limited -- for example, books about the Shackleton incident -- and although the events of the various books are familiar, I've never had such a strong impression that one author had just copied from another.

I've read all but one of the World's Scariest Places books by Jeremy Bates and he delivers every time. I find myself still thinking about the stories weeks or months later. He has a knack of drawing readers in and the story becomes all-absorbing.
This was a great page-turner and I thought that for most of the book he handled the alternating stories very well, although towards the end the earlier drama really wasn't a drama at all (we knew pretty much what had happened.)
Characters much more three-dimensional than I expected in this kind of novel - don't mean to sound patronising, but when things are all scary and action-packed, it's a pleasant surprise to find a bit of depth.
Overall, really enjoyed it.
One big problem (maybe editorial.) Discrete and discreet mean totally different things, and was there really a palatable sense of whatever it was? Palpable, surely. There were a couple of others which I've forgotten. Sorry to sound like your English teacher, but my disbelief came crashing down from its willing suspension!
Still enjoyed it though.
I lost interest pretty quickly once the reveal occurred, I feel like something more intriguing could have been plotted considering the setup beforehand. This author always reels me in due to the real life settings, but the endings always leave me disappointed - more fool me for keeping on downloading his books 😆
