All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
– Edgar Allan Poe
Rain’s life is spinning out of control. Yes, she’s an addict and her past is filled with mistakes, but now it seems her nightmares are coming to life.
Dr. Nine is the evil force in this book and he is creepy as hell. Rain and her friends are wonderfully flawed characters. And Monk is an amazing character all on his own, a cross between a private detective and paranormal vigilante.
I enjoyed this one. It is a bit of a slow burn, but totally worth it. I was surprised by the twists and by the ending. I love Maberry’s writing, the Rot & Ruin series, the Pine Deep series, and the Dead of Night series. This one is different but still scary and fun.
