"There is another world than our own-- one no closer than a kiss and one no further than our nightmares-- where all the stuff of which dreams are made is real and magic is just a step away. But once you see that world, you will never be the same. Dreams and Shadows takes us beyond this veil. Once bold explorers and youthful denizens of this magical realm, Ewan is now an Austin musician who just met his dream girl, and Colby, meanwhile, cannot escape the consequences of an innocent wish. But while Ewan and Colby left the Limestone Kingdom as children, it has never forgotten them. And in a world where angels relax on rooftops, whiskey-swilling genies argue metaphysics with foul-mouthed wizards, and monsters in the shadows feed on fear, you can never outrun your fate" -- from HarperCollins web site.… (més)

I think I came into this with high hopes only because I knew the writer from the Doctor Strange movie and having really enjoyed Sea of Rust, but nothing quite prepared me for a full-out novel of the Sidhe. The fae folk. Changelings, a nasty Tithe, and the tricksy Coyote.

Oh, and let's not forget the other main story. Young Coby and his Jinn.

This is a very atmospheric and darkly delicious novel that really gives us the heave-ho into the whole storyline of poorly thought-out wishes, curses, and the kinds of monsters that live within all of us.

And the good intentions that lead soooo many people down the road to hell.

I loved this. It's right up your alley if you love Gaiman and Cat Valente. Dark, mythological, and as twisty as you like.

I don't think there's a single character in this novel that isn't a victim of his or her own hubris. And yet it always charms us, leads us to wonder and discovery, plays with us the way chaos magic always plays with us, and then sets us back down gently amid a field of gore, telling us that we'll be all right.

Or will we?

*tips his red cap upon his head, lets a little moisture drip upon his finger*

Yes, I think we will be all right. ( )

I loved this book, I really liked the pace and the way he broke up the chapters. The characters were great and it was a really unique story. ( )

Couldn't make it past the first chapter. Apparently I'm still too new a mother to read about postpartum psychosis. And while I appreciate it's just the introduction and this isn't going to be a recurring theme (at least as far as the back cover copy suggests), I'm just having way too much nope. (If I were going to attempt some sort of objectivity about it, I'd say: this is too much horror for me.)

This novel is made of two books. Book One is merely ok. Book Two is phenomenal and astounding and so worth it.
I really shouldn't like this book as much as I do. There are some fairly flagrant problems: an underdeveloped magic system, the stark shift in tone from the fairytale-esque Book One to the f bomb laden Book Two. But you know what? I don't care. This book is startling and unexpected and takes risks. ( )

Wicked book. Definitely NOT your average Faerie tale ( )
