The Downside series written by S.L. Grey is comprised of a total of 3 books, which were released between the years 2010 and 2013. Each and every book of this series consists of a different set of lead characters, who are typically shown in male and female pairs. The debut book of the series is entitled ‘The Mall’. It was released by the Atlantic Books publication in the year 2010. The chief characters of this novel are depicted as Rhoda and Dan. At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that Dan works in a shopping mall and hates it very much. Rhoda is described as a junkie girl, who uses cocaine. She too hates the state in which she has landed herself. The two run into each other one day and then set off to search the babysitting charge of Rhoda, who had run away.

As they try to look at every possible place, they end up exploring the neon lit corridors at the backside of the mall. Soon, they receive some disturbing messages that lure them to go inside the building. Once insides, they see that ancient mannequins are placed in the grave like piles. Also, the ceiling has continuous dripping of raw sewage. Rhoda & Dan think that the only way they can head to in order to save themselves is down. As they use the disused service elevator to go down, they plummet inside the earth and discover themselves in a very sinister underworld. The underworld makes Dan & Rhoda realize the worst of the fears.

Finally, they manage to escape from the sinister underworld. But, as they come out, they realize things are a lot different than they were before. Shoppers have pumped up silicone fully and their assistants have been chained to the counters. Also, the nearby cafe is selling bleeding meat. Rhoda and Dan wonder what kind of place they have arrived at? Just then they get struck by the reality that they have not arrived back at the mall, but their worst nightmare has just started. They begin thinking of ways to get themselves out of this mess and start living their normal lives. But, the path seems very difficult and full of numerous deadly obstacles. The two know that they have the support of each other and that is enough for them to face any difficulty and overcome them in the end.

The second volume of this thrilling series is called ‘The Ward’. It was also published by the UK-based Atlantic Books in 2012. Author Grey has mentioned the central characters in this particular book as Lisa, Farrell, etc. At the beginning of the story of the book, it is depicted that Lisa is an addict of plastic surgery. She also suffers from issues of self-esteem. There is only hospital capable of treating patients like her and it is known as New Hope. This hospital looks like a grey-walled, grimy facility and is dubbed as No Hope by the patients. Farrell is introduced into the story as a famous photographer. He wakes up one day and finds himself in the New Hope hospital alone. The last thing he remembers is that he had a big fight with his model girlfriend.

Farrell discovers some criss-cross needle marks on his arms. A nurse keeps visiting him every now and then, and keeps altering his drip. Farrell gets sinister vibes from the nurse and feels something is not right with the place. After some time, Farrell finds himself completely blind. He becomes disoriented and panicked, and begins to lose hope of his survival. After a short while, Farrell comes across Lisa and requests her to help him in escaping from No Hope. As they make an attempt at escaping, they get taken deep underground. They arrive inside the Modification Ward, where Lisa thinks of having her face changed forever. But, it will come at a costly price for her and will haunt Farrell and herself all their lives.
