    An interesting story with quite an original plot. I'm not sure I've read anything quite like this before. If this is book one, I am excited to see future books in this series.

    It took a bit to wrap my head around it, but that is a good thing. The imagery is wonderful and I found myself immersed in each persons story throughout this book. The only drawback I really found was the pacing at times. The book overall has a fairly brisk pace. There are times it seems a tad slow though...but it is rare.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this book, and I believe it well worth the purchase!

    *Spoiler Free and modified from my Amazon review (Goodreads is where I go for more in-depth reviews, so I usually try to expand a bit)*

    There are some books you read more than once; this is one of those books. When you think you have everything figured out, Weech will throw you for a loop. I found myself scanning backward when I learned something new. Sure enough, if you read close enough, you might catch some foreshadowy breadcrumbs (this was well done).

    There are some books you read more than once; this is one of those books. When you think you have everything figured out, Weech will throw you for a loop. I found myself scanning backward when I learned something new. Sure enough, if you read close enough, you might catch some foreshadowy breadcrumbs (this was well done).

    This book has the speed of a pulp story, but is layered with complexity. Sal, Chris, Kaitlyn, Caden: these are characters you will care about as the author took the time to build them in a creative way. Personally, I'm team Sal, but all the characters are enjoyable. In addition to these "main characters," there are some others who I feel will likely play an important role in the future books (I'm talking about the pipe swinging, super powered, gun slingers).

    I've busted through a few books where authors attempt to blend dreams into the story and it sometimes feels disjointed, or there are odd transitions. This book was pretty doggone smooth. The use of night terrors and dreams was a clever method to mix backstory and action. Many books bludgeon you about the head and neck with backstory — this one sneaks it in and doesn't slow you down with the stuff.

    Reading the first book in a series is worrisome. You don't know if the book ends on a cliffhanger, if the author will produce a next book, or what the deal will be. This book has a clear ending. Yes, the title and the ending are written in a way to let us know more books are coming from this series (write them Weech), but this book can stand alone.
