Waiting on Wednesday #54: Survive the Night by Danielle Vega

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

Survive the Night
Danielle Vega
Publication Date: July 7, 2015
We're all gonna die down here. . . .

Julie lies dead and disemboweled in a dank, black subway tunnel, red-eyed rats nibbling at her fingers. Her friends think she’s just off with some guy—no one could hear her getting torn apart over the sound of pulsing music.

In a tunnel nearby, Casey regrets coming to Survive the Night, the all-night underground rave in the New York City subway. Her best friend Shana talked her into it, even though Casey just got out of rehab. Alone and lost in the dark, creepy tunnels, Casey doesn’t think Survive the Night could get any worse . . .
. . . until she comes across Julie’s body, and the party turns deadly.

Desperate for help, Casey and her friends find themselves running through the putrid subway system, searching for a way out. But every manhole is sealed shut, and every noise echoes eerily in the dark, reminding them they’re not alone.

They’re being hunted.
Trapped underground with someone—or something—out to get them, Casey can’t help but listen to her friend’s terrified refrain: “We’re all gonna die down here. . . .” in this bone-chilling sophmore novel by the acclaimed author of The Merciless. 

I read The Merciless by Danielle Vega last year and really ended up enjoying it! Decent YA horror novels are hard to come by and I think this new novel might be pretty awesome!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
