This creepy sophomore novel delivered some perfectly timed moments that had me both shocked and captivated. Author Alex North's second book after last year's memorable The Whisper Man also dives into the disturbing world of kids and violence, and the choices he makes throughout are never what I expected to happen next. This story pulls from a lot of different threads to create a unique story- lucid dreaming, a bit of a Stephen King feel, and a plot that has some callbacks to the real life Slenderman case. This is definitely one that had me wanting to leave the lights on, and since this story features a young detective who also appeared in North's debut, I'd love to see more books that go even deeper with Amanda.
