(I received a free copy of this book, from Curiosity Quills Press, in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I was a bit surprised at just how much was happening in this book. That isn’t always a good thing, but it worked really well in this book, because I felt that the different storylines worked really well together and that the characters were all really well-developed.
Dreams are used a lot in different kinds of fiction, but I thought it was quite interesting to make the use of nightmares in this book. I also liked that there wasn’t really any romance here… it makes a nice change from the books where the romance takes over the whole storyline and quickly becomes the main focus.
One of the things I particularly liked about this book was the evolution of the relationship between Carrie and George. I felt that the author clearly spent quite a lot of time on that and it was one of my favourite parts of the book, even though there were some things that were a bit sad.
The nightmares Megan experiences are particularly creepy. I really don’t think I’m ever going to look at clowns in the same way again… though there is something that, I have to admit, is a little disturbing about them. Which is probably from all of the horror things I watch with clowns in…
I would have liked to know more about some of the characters, such as Steve and Rose. Both of them had enough hints to make me curious about their history and how they knew each other. Mercury was a character who intrigued me as well, even though I didn’t really like her.
There was a lot about this world that I would have really liked to see further explored. If there’s a sequel to this book, I’d definitely be interested in checking it out at some point in the future.
