Those Deep Below is a work of sci-fi, suspense, and historical fiction penned by author John W. Noyes and forms the first novel of The Inti Series. Based on the ancient world and culture of the Inca Empire, in this story we meet central character Rezi in her journey through life and the ‘afterlife’ which is forced upon her. Praised by the king for her soothing singing skills, Rezi soon finds herself in deep trouble when she and the rest of the king’s household are buried alive by his sudden death. Sworn to serve the king in the afterlife, Rezi finds herself at the mercy of the jealous queen, and in a literal fight for her life to escape from the Below, back into the real world.

Author John W. Noyes has created a compelling concept for a really thrilling novel, touching on multiple genres as the journey through the ‘afterlife’ of the Below unfolds before the members of the king’s household. Rezi is a well-developed heroine who offers plenty of empathy and pathos for readers, especially in those harrowing scenes with the queen, and she develops and strengthens along with the story and plot. The different strands of a political and social thriller are well woven alongside her personal story, creating a really tense atmosphere which keeps you on your toes with every page you turn. Ultimately this is a truly unique and exciting novel with plenty to offer fans of many different genres, making Those Deep Below a highly recommend read for mature audiences.
