I received a copy of the book from Netgalley to review. Thank you for the opportunity.
A strange and twisted story that lacked any real structure or clear concept. The whole thing was all round weird.

I received an eARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Dark and fast paced, this tale is an interesting take on dreams and nightmares.

It delves into the human psyche, tackling a variety of human emotions through not only the characters but their world. It was well written but it seemed to lack something, I didn't feel anything. There were small infrequent moments that were meaningful, but I think it was really missing connection with the reader. I sadly found myself feeling a little bored at times, and it had such a morbid undercurrent to it, that it should have appealed to my melancholic nature. However, it just missed the mark for me.

I really enjoyed the entire concept though, and I don't think I've read a book quite like it. Truly original and will certainly appeal to those of a darker demeanour who enjoy tales of a more twisted nature, the writing was just missing something to draw this particular reader in .

Not to purposely add a pun in this review but this the writing style is very 'dreamlike' and atmospheric! The characters are so lifelike and relatable in so many ambiguous ways. This book is dark and gorgeous and deep and immersive. 100% recommend!

I think this book had a lot of potential. I loved the perspective of being told from the point of view of a nightmare, as it was really unique. The author did a great job of world building and describing he scenery. That's where the praise ends, unfortunately.

At first I cared about Fang and Self Loathing. However, as the book went on I really didn't care anymore. Their interactions were the same thing over, and over, and what I thought were redeeming qualities at first, ended up being toxic. The girlfriend thing was bizarre, as I feel there was never consent (especially with the muse). Then We have a love triangle that becomes a square which makes no sense. I still don't really know what the plot was.
