Waiting on...

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

from Greenwillow Books
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?

My thoughts:
While this sounds like an amazing thriller/mystery already--I still hope there is something seriously spooky going on in this story!!  I love stories surrounding the French Revolution, so that alone puts it on my must-read list.  Plus, the gorgeous cover doesn't hurt either. :)


  1. This book isn't my type of read, but the cover sure looks pretty! I hope you get to read this soon and happy reading! :)
