“There is no pain in this death, only peace, knowing I am going to die with the one I love the most.”—Katriona Wilde.

Katriona Wilde has never wondered what it would feel like to have everything she’s ever known and loved ripped away, but she is about to find out. When she inadvertently leads her sister and best friend through a portal into a world she’s dreamed of for six years, she finds herself faced with more than just the frightening creatures in front of her.

Kate’s forced to accept a new truth: her entire life has been a lie, and those closest to her have betrayed her. What’s worse, she has no control over her new future, and it’s full of magic and horrors from which nightmares are made.

Will Kate discover and learn to control who she really is in time to save the ones she loves, or will all be lost?

This was a story that where the reader’s enjoyment really depended on their feelings for the main character. I didn’t connect with her, and so didn’t enjoy the story as much as I might have.

Mostly, I had a hard time with Katriona because she is supposedly 20 years old and has never kissed a boy, and she has regularly had sleepovers in the same bed with her male best friend since she was a kid. This behaviour just didn’t seem natural. It was hard to connect with a character who supposedly had erotic dreams about someone their whole life, and yet had absolutely no experience in real life.

The storyline itself seemed to more in spits and spurts. The last 50 pages really flew by. The ending was a bit frustrating. This is definitely not a stand alone story, more like a set-up book for the rest of the series.
