This book to me was a jumbled of feelings all rolled into one. It’s definitely one of the first queer fantasy books I have ever read. The writing is descriptive and fantastical. But as action is not really my thing, I found myself skimming through those. That being said, the premise is wild and at times confusing. That doesn’t mean I enjoyed it any less. But I will say that I came away from it wondering if there would be a sequel because…. I still have questions.
Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):
All Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember how he got there, what happened after, and why his life seems so different now. And it’s not just Kane who’s different, the world feels off, reality itself seems different.
As Kane pieces together clues, three almost-strangers claim to be his friends and the only people who can truly tell him what’s going on. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident. And when a sinister force threatens to alter reality for good, they will have to do everything they can to stop it before it unravels everything they know.
This wildly imaginative debut explores what happens when the secret worlds that people hide within themselves come to light.
I received this book for review purposes from NetGalley. ⠀
