Description

Face your fear . . . or become your nightmare.

Gotham meets Strange the Dreamer in this thrilling young adult fantasy about a cowardly girl who finds herself at the center of a criminal syndicate conspiracy, in a city where crooked politicians and sinister cults reign and dreaming means waking up as your worst nightmare.

Ever since her sister became a man-eating spider, Ness has been terrified of waking up as her own Nightmare. Because in the city that never sleeps, dreaming means becoming your worst fear.

Ness seeks protection with the Friends of the Restful Soul, which may or may not be a cult. To prove her worth, she accepts what is meant to be a simple job. Only for it to blow up in her face. Literally.

Ness and the only other survivor of the explosion - a Nightmare boy with an agenda of his own - must find their way back to the city and uncover the sinister truth behind the attack...
