Have you ever had the nightmare of being chased by a beast?
Then you’ve met Fang.
He’ll be the first to admit that he’s a very simple nightmare. All he knows is hunting your dreams and dragging them into the Dark.
He’s not ready for his life to get complicated. He’s not ready to be dragged into his best friend’s schemes to make dreams so terrifying they break people. He’s not ready to love, or to be loved, or to meet someone who makes him happy.
He’s definitely not ready for those to be three different girls.
He’s not ready to grow up.
When he does, one thing will stay the same. He’ll stay an artist, and he’ll paint your dreams with fear until they’re beautiful.

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 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 .
