Synopsis (Goodreads):
The New York subway system has: 656 miles of track... 468 stations... 31 thousand turnstiles... and 1.64 BILLION fares yearly. For six of those fares, the trip is going to be one they will never forget. Six strangers will board a subway. But this subway is unlike the others. This subway doesn't take you where you want or where you need. It takes you where you fear. This DARKBOUND.

Thoughts on Darkbound: I'm having one of those "How do I write this review without giving everything away?" moments. Seriously, it's the twists and turns of what we learn on this subway that makes the journey so enjoyable. You know, enjoyable in a dark, brutal, bloody sort of way.

My word of warning is that this book is pretty gruesome. Gross things happen. Bloody, terrible things. So, if you have a weak stomach or don't like gore, it's probably best to stay away. However, if you like a little viscera in your story, this book does deliver.

I like the twists we learn about each character as their story unfolds. Some of them you can see coming but a few surprised me. I like being surprised. Bad things happen and the people we see on the outside aren't AT ALL the people they are within. *thumbs up*
