Synopsis: One minute everything was fine and the next… they arrived. Those that saw them died instantly. The unlucky ones survived. Now unimaginable things straight out of nightmares roam the streets of our towns and cities. Nothing is impossible. Nowhere is safe. And no one can escape The Change…Grace just wants to find her brother, but she can’t go anywhere without the Queen of Coney Island’s permission to travel. Now the Queen demands payment and Grace and her new friend, a man in a false beard who believes he is God, must journey into the nightmare world of Dreamland, a tourist park whose attractions are as lethal as they are bizarre.
This series just keeps getting better and better! I love how each book is a different story entirely and is set in a different country around the world. It helps to give the perspective that The Change happened worldwide, and that there are different horrors in each country, not just one.
Once again Guy Adams absolutely mesmerised me with his descriptions and his writing style. Everything in the novel is so vivid, you honestly feel as if you’re going along with the characters. The pace of the story is always done so well, with there never being a dull moment and giving you no choice but wanting to read the entire story in one sitting!
The characters in this book were especially brilliantly written and developed. Not only was God one of the funniest characters I’ve ever read, but every character that you meet along the way of Grace’s journey adds something so unique to the story, whether it be comedic relief or interesting information to develop the narrative. Grace and God work so well together, it’s like they were meant to be friends.
The overall story once again has so much horror, but also an interesting supernatural element to it that the entire of the theme park becomes alive. It’s so interesting and kept me hooked from the first page.. A lot happens throughout the story in a very short amount of time, but it works perfectly!
Guy Adams is an absolute master of short novels with a bite. This book is definitely something you’ll want to read and then want to read all over again once you finish it!
