RATING: Six Blazing Stars
The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.
But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming...
This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.
"Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary. And your mind will punish you for believing both."I cried throughout the last chapters of this book. And why I chose to finish this book in the middle of the night, when I'm most emotional I have no clue. It only took a few hours to read but I immediately had to brave the feels.
The tales in this book, should strike a chord with all, because we all have to deal with the a range of emotions, that's part of life. Until we all learn to face our truth's and let go of what we need to, we will not be healed. That is what this book left me with. With puffy eyes and drifting thoughts I write this review, trying to process how prose can make you feel so included, as if you were having your own personal conversation.
me to do just that. I give this book a standing, sobbing ovation and I thank the authors for such a healing and memorable experience.
