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. 

Because I’m such a fan of Danielle Vega’s Merciless, I decided to give this book of her a chance. And I did like it, as much as I liked Mercilesss that is. It wasn’t really a masterpiece per se but it is quite entertaining. Vega’s imagination for blood and gore is astounding. It may be a little bit far fetched, as much as fictional plots go, but it makes me shudder that someone can write so vivid presentations of horror and gore. I also like that even though the story revolves around a death filled party it also has some teenage romantic problem on the side. 
I won’t spoil any of it anymore because I want you to know what will unfold in this book by yourself. It may be kind of short but I still liked it enough that it made me get over my The Bell Jar Slump. 

Giving this book 3 gore filled and kinda slimy Royal Stars. Yay!
