Stephen King meets Pretty Little Liars in this pulse-pounding novel from the author of The Merciless.
Just back from rehab, Casey regrets letting her friends Shana, Julie, and Aya talk her into coming to Survive the Night, an all-night, underground rave in a New York City subway tunnel. Surrounded by frightening drugs and menacing strangers, Casey doesn't think Survive the Night could get any worse....
...until she comes across Julie's mutilated body in a dank, black subway tunnel, red-eyed rats nibbling at her fingers. Casey thought she was just off with some guy - no one could hear her getting torn apart over the sound of pulsing music. And by the time they get back to the party, everyone is gone.
Desperate for help, Casey and her friends find themselves running through the putrid subway tunnels, 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 Aya's terrified refrain: "We're all gonna die down here."

On the edge of my seat
Each chapter leaves you more and more on edge. The reader, Sophie Amoss, is so amazing she sets up each chapter with just the sound and strain/ stress/ terror in her voice. Will definitely listen to it again.

My Review Can Be Summed Up in One Sound: Meh.
I will start this review by saying that the synopsis for this book was so intriguing that I bought it right away. I didn't give it a week to think about or anything.... And now, all I'm saying is 'Survive the Night' was meh....
Casey just got out of rehab after she became addicted to painkillers when she had a huge injury during soccer; her knee was destroyed as a huge girl ran into her during a game. The story starts out with Casey's father driving her to Madison's (a former soccer friend) house for a "parent-approved" friend's party. Before they even go inside, Shana, Aya, and Julie come in Shana's beat up car where all of Casey's old friends sit judging.
Shana says that Casey's ex-boyfriend, Sam wants nothing more than to see her again. After going to the concert that Sam plays in, they all decide that they want to go to this epic underground raid called "Survive the Night." After they find the party, they all end up having a bunch of fun doing various things until Casey finds a hand with a onyx ring when she's down a tunnel; the onyx ring is the ring that Julie never takes off.
With Julie dead and the rave cleared out, the group is stuck trying to find a way out, but all the manholes seem to be sealed shut. They start to notice that they are being followed...
I'm going to honest about Danielle Vega's novel. It had all all the things to make it a great book, but it fell flat at the end. In the beginning, it was super boring in the middle and I couldn't wait until the rave started, but it just wouldn't start!
So according to my grade system, I'll be giving this a C-, but I will give Sophie Amoss will get a solid A. She did an amazing job.
