Waiting on Wednesday [286] – AWAKENED by James S. Murray & Darren Wearmouth

Waiting on Wednesdays is the brainchild of Jill at Breaking the Spine, and because Jill isn’t hosting it any more, I’m now linking up with Can’t Wait Wednesday at Wishful Endings. Stop over there and link up your “Can’t Wait” book of the week!

This sounds SO scary! I love stories that take place in confined spaces, especially horror stories:

The star of truTV’s hit show Impractical Jokers—alongside veteran sci-fi and horror writer Darren Wearmouth—delivers a chilling and wickedly fun supernatural novel in the vein of The Strain, in which a beautiful new subway line in New York City unearths an ancient dark horror that threatens the city’s utter destruction and the balance of civilization itself.

After years of waiting, New York’s newest subway line is finally ready, an express train that connects the city with the burgeoning communities across the Hudson River. The shining jewel of this state-of-the-art line is a breathtaking visitors’ pavilion beneath the river.  Major dignitaries, including New York City’s Mayor and the President of the United States, are in attendance for the inaugural run, as the first train slowly pulls in.

Under the station’s bright ceiling lights, the shiny silver cars gleam. But as the train comes closer into view, a far different scene becomes visible.

All the train’s cars are empty.

All the cars’ interiors are drenched in blood.

As chaos descends, all those in the pavilion scramble to get out. But the horror is only beginning. High levels of deadly methane fill the tunnels. The structure begins to flood. For those who don’t drown, choke or spark an explosion, another terrifying danger awaits—the thing that killed all those people on the train. It’s out there…and it’s coming.

There’s something living beneath New York City, and it’s not happy we’ve woken it up.

Awakened by James S. Murray & Darren Wearmouth. Releases in June 2018 from Harper Voyager. I have to admit whenever I see a book written by two authors I’m a little hesitant, but I think I would put my hesitations aside in this case. This story sounds crazy!

Let me know what you’re waiting on this week:-D

  1. Harper Voyager is slaying! They have been publishing great fiction recently. I love that this book has a plot revolving around the subway system – I use the Baltimore subway system to get to work every day and I love the subway (even if it is crappy sometimes). I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Tammy!

    Have a lovely day. =)

      I love the subway setting as well. Subways can be truly terrifying, I don’t know why more writers don’t tackle that setting.

      Ha ha, I have never even seen that show! Interesting that the host is now cowriting a book. I guess we’ll see!

      I’m fascinated by the underground tunnels and subways of New York, so I think that setting is perfect for a horror story:-)

      I was trying to find an adult pick this week, since I feel like I’ve been choosing lots of YA lately. Hope you have time to read it!

  2. This one sounds great – I’ll definitely add this to my list. I love stories of this nature, and the whole – something has woken under New York City – oh yes, me wants to read.

  3. I totally understand why you’d hesitate. I would too, but ever since I read Illuminae, I think those two authors sort of gave me hope to any book written by two authors hahah Hopefully this one will turn out to be fantastic! 😀
