Nightstruck
Jenna Black
Expected Publication: April 5, 2016
Genre: YA Horror
It starts with a cry in the night. Becket, a teenage girl walking her dog one winter evening, fears it's the cry of an abandoned baby. But it is something else—something evil—and it tricks Becket into opening a doorway to another realm, letting a darkness into our world, a corruption that begins transforming Philadelphia into a menacing version of itself…but only at night.

The changes are subtle at first, causing Becket to doubt her senses and her sanity, but soon the nightmarish truth is impossible to deny. By day, the city is just a city, but by night it literally comes alive with malevolent purpose. Brick and steel transform into bone, streetlights become gallows, and hungry alleys wait to snare mortal victims. Terrified citizens huddle indoors after dusk, even as others succumb to the siren song of the night, letting their darker sides run wild.

Once, Becket’s biggest problems were living up to her police commissioner father’s high expectations and a secret crush on her best friend’s boyfriend. But now she must find a way to survive--and to protect her loved ones--before the darkness takes her as well.
There's nothing wrong with a little horror and a little what if. Admit it. You've always imagined what it's like if your neighborhood wasn't all it seemed to be.

  5. I hadn't heard of this one before, but I'm so glad to know about it now. I love all things horror and I feel like there isn't too much of it in YA. I'm definitely picking this one up when it's released!
