City of Nightmares: The thrilling, surprising young adult urban fantasy
About this deal
What if every time you dreamed, you rolled the dice on the chance that you woke up as your worst Nightmare? My mind has snapped back to the me of eight years ago, the me who listened from my hiding spot as my father was ripped apart piece by piece, the bones crunching as my sister—no, as the Nightmare—slowly ate him alive.
I AM ABSOLUTELY GETTING A PHYSICAL COPY OF THIS BOOK, not only because I'm obsessed as I said, but also because the cover is gorgeous.
Every single Nightmare is different, because every person’s idea of what would stop their own personal monster is different. The way the magic system (the Nightmares) in this book works is also fascinating, and I loved learning about every part of the process.
