In this young adult thriller for fans of Lost and The Twilight Zone, a group of teens are saved when they come across a mysterious oasis. But who will save them from the oasis?

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

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, and 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 each other, 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 ...

An Imprint Book"De Becerra's haunting supernatural thriller will stick to readers' skin long after the final page is turned... Suspense, gore, spooky imagery, and creepy plot developments come through via bloodcurdling nightmares, group hallucinations, and uncontrollable desires and obsessions." --Booklist

"de Becerra successfully builds a fraught tension throughout the book that mirrors the characters' feelings as reality leaves them behind . . . well worth the payoff." --The Bulletin

Cool Stuff About Oasis

Oasis is full of awesome things that will draw you in! Things like:

  1. The incredible setting! How many books have you read that take place in the desert outside of Dubai? Yeah me either and frankly, that is unfortunate and I want more of them!
  2. There’s a survival theme! Ah, who doesn’t love having to survive harsh conditions!? I mean- not in actual life, but reading about them, of course!
  3. Add in an element of mystery! I mean, I’ll leave it at that, but there is definitely an unknown involved that will kind of need to be figured out.

About Katya de Becerra

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.

    I love mysteries, survival stories, and this setting is a first for me. I would most likely fry to a crisp if stranded in a desert.

    The cover is absolutely lovely. The story is definitely unique and sounds great. I look forward to this one. Bestwishes to the author on the novel.
