The oasis saved them. But who will save them from the oasis?

Alif had exciting summer plans: working on her father’s archaeological dig site in the desert with four close friends . . . and a very cute research assistant. Then the sandstorm hit.

With their camp wiped away, Alif and the others find themselves lost on the sands, seemingly doomed . . . until they find the oasis. It has everything they need: food, water, shade—and mysterious ruins that hide a deadly secret. As reality begins to shift around them, they question what’s real and what’s a mirage.

The answers turn Alif and her friends against one another, and they begin to wonder if they’ve truly been saved. And while it was easy to walk into the oasis, it may be impossible to leave . . .

Katya de Becerra’s new supernatural thriller hides a mystery in plain sight, and will keep you guessing right up to its terrifying conclusion.

Ten Tips to Survive the Oasis

1. When escaping the sand storm, watch where you’re going and do your best to avoid the flying debris;

2. While stranded in the desert, spare clothing items can make a fine hat to prevent excessive sunburn;

3. Logic doesn’t really work out here, but it can still make you feel safe, I guess;

4. Enjoy the gifts of the oasis while they last;

5. Resistance is futile, but so is complacency;

6. Let your subconscious guide your way (or not);

7. Those pretty flowers over there are most definitely bad for you;

8. Somebody should probably stay awake and keep watch while others are trying to sleep;

9. Things are rarely what they seem, but I suppose we already knew that;

10. Oasis always knows best, so let it do its thing.

About the Author

Katya de Becerra was born in Russia, studied in California, lived in Peru, and then stayed in Australia long enough to become a local. She was going to be an Egyptologist when she grew up, but instead she earned a PhD in Anthropology and now works as a university lecturer and a researcher. Katya is a short version of her real name, which is very long and gets mispronounced a lot. What The Woods Keep was her first novel (out now), which is followed by another standalone Oasis in 2020. She has also authored and co-authored academic articles, book chapters, guest posts and opinion pieces.
