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 subway...is DARKBOUND.
Because the thing that haunts them is not just evil... It is something much, much worse.
Watching them from the shadows. Hungry to start killing once more. And thirsty for the blood of the children, the blood he has so long been denied.
The thing that haunts them is not just evil. It is twisted.
The survivors have been hunted.

And they're being hunted.

Would you like to know - I mean, REALLY know - what our favorite authors are doing when they go to those fancy comic-cons? Because it ain't just writing.

every year, thousands of MONSTERS
attend comic-cons dressed as PEOPLE.
Sure. Nothing could POSSIBLY go wrong there.
Luckily, the con organizers have placed Wardens throughout the conventions. These undercover supernatural troubleshooters are tasked with stopping mayhem before it starts . . . or solving the murders after they happen.
I'M MICHAELBRENT COLLINGS: author of this book, and one of the Wardens. My job is to go to the cons, where I sell books, make fans, and kill the occasional monster.
It's not just me, either. Those authors I told you about . . . you'd never guess what many of your favorite authors are REALLY up to at the conventions.
Luckily, though, you don't have to guess.
JUST READ THIS BOOK.
And get ready to have . . . your . . . mind . . . BLOWN.*
