The Secret Bunker Trilogy 1: Darkness Falls by Paul Teague is a delightful blend of mystery and science fiction. Dan Tracy has a past of tragedy. His twin sister, Nat, was hit by a van when they were thirteen. After having difficulties at school and lashing out at other students, his parents and teachers decided it was best for him to be home-schooled. When his family wins a competition for a vacation to a secret bunker in Scotland, he thinks his life may be turning toward something good. What starts as normal quickly takes a frantic turn when Dan is separated from his family during a mysterious lock-down that leaves him trapped in the dark for over twenty-four hours. Dan is determined to find his family and find out the secrets of the bunker. Everything from his past comes back into focus, including the man who ran over his sister and the secrets of his mother’s past.
Paul Teague delivers a fast paced mystery that hits a twist with every chapter. The novel is told from different perspectives, including events of the past and the present. As Dan works to uncover why he has mysterious free access to the bunker, readers are treated to snippets of what’s occurring outside. It makes you question everything and when it ends you have to know what happens next. Teague shows different sides of the situation by having you sympathize with each character. It’s a great blend of conspiracy, science, and mystery. The Secret Bunker is a great start to a trilogy, perfectly setting up a mystery and the chaos it brings. I can’t wait to read the next one to see what the end means for the rest of the story!
