This new urban fantasy has an attention-grabbing plot and interesting characters that lend excitement and suspense, while the psychological tension provides a satisfying head trip. But there's a lot going on, and the breakneck pace in the beginning is overwhelming. Short, intense chapters jump between dreams and reality, creating confusion. Once the pace settles down, however, the storyline satisfies and leads to a cliffhanger conclusion.
