"Modern-day teenagers meet a palace of terrors locked up since the French Revolution in this surprising and haunting thriller from Stefan Bachmann, the internationally bestselling author of The Peculiar and The Whatnot. A Drop of Night will thrill fans of Neal Shusterman and Jessica Khoury. Seventeen-year-old Anouk has finally caught the break she's been looking for--she's been chosen to participate in an exclusive program that includes an all-expense-paid trip to France and a chance to explore the hidden underground Palais des Papillons, or Palace of Butterflies. Along with four other gifted teenagers, Anouk will be one of the first people to set foot in the palace in more than two hundred years. Bachmann's masterful scene-building alternates between Anouk's flight through the palace and the struggles of Aurelie, who escaped the French Revolution by fleeing into the Palais des Papillons in 1792."--

I picked this up based on the cover--and guess what, that's okay! Because this turned out better than I expected. It's got some history, mystery, and then (surprise!) turns into this (bloody) thriller. It's a bit hard to follow near the end, but don't let that discourage you. It helped get me out of my YA reading slump, too.

This was a pretty good story. I did find it a bit hard to follow, though

This was an interesting thriller/mystery/supernatural story that kept me on my toes, but I just had a hard time really getting into it. I wasn't totally sold on the way the teenagers got to this manor, though I understand why it was set up the way it was. I did enjoy the plot-twists we slowly learn about as we read this story. Overall, it was an interesting read, just not my forte!
