This book was seriously creepy! And that's a good thing 'cause I LOVE horror novels! At one point it was soooo creepy (and more than a bit gruesome) that I had to stop eating my snack. Is that a good thing? Well, if it was trying to creep the heck out of me, then yes! Mission accomplished, lol!
The storyline was really interesting and kept me wanting to find out more...I'm always up for cracking a mystery!
I also really liked the Persian mythology reference...I am in love with mythology! But because my expertise lies in Greek mythology, I had to look up the deity they mentioned...not that I mind ;) I love learning new things about any type of mythology :)
One of the main reasons why I accepted to review this book, aside from the fact that it's horror, was because it involved dreams. I really like psychology, and when I took a psych class a while ago, my favorite section was that on sleep and dreams. Up until now, this sort of stuff still fascinates me.
I have a cousin who is in nursing school and she just got done visiting a psychiatric hospital. One year from now I'm going to be in her same position, and because I like psych, I was super excited! But now that I read this (because a psychiatric hospital is part of the setting), I'm not as excited, lol.
I love that books can cause me to feel all these emotions. I don't know why, but I love being frightened! It's why I like to watch horror movies, too! And Griffin Hayes has done it again with his writing, even though it's got me a little paranoid about nursing school next year, lol.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and all its creepiness! I would not recommend it to those who don't like horror novels or are more than a bit squeamish.
I'll definitely be on the look out for more books by this author :)
