Waiting on A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

The book that caught my fancy is...

A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann

Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Published Date: 15 March 2016
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository | Dymocks Australia

Five gifted teenagers are selected out of hundreds of other candidates to fly to France and help with the excavation of a vast, underground palace buried a hundred feet below the suburbs of Paris. Built in the 1780's to hide an aristocratic family and a mad duke during the French Revolution, the palace was sealed after the aristocrats fled there. No one has set foot in it for over two centuries.

Now, in the present day, the teenagers enter with cutting-edge technology, state-of-the-art security, scientists and chaperones. And then a brutal accident occurs. No way out. Caught in the dark.

They will have to fight to survive. But are they really alone in the depths?
(summary from Goodreads)


I'm definitely liking the sounds of this one! Plus I saw it described as for fans of Cabin in the Woods, so yes, please! 

What book are you waiting on?

    1. I saw it last week but decided to go with another book, so I figured this week it was only fair to feature it. :-) It does sound creepy so I really can't wait to read it. :-D Thanks, Yvonne.

  2. You had me at Paris. Nods. But, also -- a sci fi novel set in France. Historical France no less -- what a compelling comparison in this! Here's mine: http://editingeverything.com/blog/2015/09/16/waiting-on-wednesday-richard-kadreys-been-busy/
