"From the opening sentence, the author piles on the dread and scares as she deconstructs Misha and Tanvi’s mostly toxic relationship with a sharp taste for emotional complexity. Employing rich language, she depicts adolescent turmoil via ominous imagery but never loses sight of the hopeful possibility of change ... Gut-wrenching on various levels."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Serious, literary, and very scary, this novel is a slow burn, taking half the book to establish character before turning to satisfying and smart horror. A good pick for thoughtful horror readers."

Booklist

"Cara Martin has created a beautifully haunting rendition of the classic haunted house tale that feels true to the genre but offers a new twist."

Canadian Review of Materials, ****

Synopsis:

Tanvi isn’t the girl of Misha’s dreams; she’s the girl from his nightmares. She has appeared in his chilling dreams before he even meets her; when he does meet her, he falls for her.

 

Their relationship turns stormy, bordering on abusive, and takes a dramatic turn when they are held captive by a group hoping to extract money from Tanvi’s wealthy family.

 

But there is something more sinister at work, and the kidnappers and their victims find themselves struggling for survival as a supernatural force from Misha’s nightmares makes itself known in the real world.
