There are no words to explain what I thought of this book… well actually there are. This was the most unique, strange, weird and just out-there book I have read, if not in a while, then ever! You have got to read this book. From the concept to the characters to the world building, it’s just so unique you won’t be able to stop talking about it. I know I haven’t.
So, I don’t want to ruin the book by telling you too much about it but there’s time travel or dream travel between worlds to be more accurate. Our heroine has a locket that when she falls asleep with it she travels to Sang, a strange and scary world full of supernatural beings. Coppers, pinkies and bludpeople, along with a series of blud animals as well (the bludbunnies!!!!!). Sang runs on blud. Criminy had gotten the locket and spelled it to bring his wife to him. So from the moment she shows up in Sang he knows that’s his woman. Together they have to go through a series of problems to save the Blud people of Sang from genocide, at the same time trying to get her back to her world. Oh and did I forget to mention that Criminy runs basically a traveling circus? Yeah, so there are strong men, mermaids, fortune telling and more!
Even though I had some times where there were some disgusting things that happened, it goes well with the world. There’s nothing sugar-coated about the way things are described. My only complaint was that I really couldn’t connect on a romantic level with the characters. Criminy just can’t feel sexy to me what with the scaly black hands and the sharp like talons, and the smell!! Even though she smells him different than everyone else. WOW!!
