A Drop of Night
Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Release Date: March 15th, 2016
Purchase: Amazon / TBD
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?

  1. An archaeological expedition gone wrong? I can get on board with that!

    (I'd love a week in bed for Christmas, absolutely nothing to do but read and sleep and binge watch Netflix. If someone could throw a sandwich under the covers every one in awhile, that would be a bonus.)

  2. It would be so cool to discover a historic palace underground. I wonder who or what is locked inside with them!

  3. I'd totally freak out on an excavation like that. I'm claustrophobic so I probably wouldn't go anyway.

  4. I've read the description for this book twice and I'm still like wth? (in a good way). This sounds totally different from anything I've ever read. Thanks for sharing. ;)

  5. Underground stuff fascinates me completely. This sounds fabulous!!

  6. Ooh this is one of the ones I'm so excited for!!!! It looks so interesting and suspenseful!! And I think the cover is so pretty <3 <3.

  8. This one sounds amazing! Cannot wait for this one to come out! :)
