You should ask about it here: Organize your own Read-A-Long! before opening a thread. Anyway, I will check it out.

Ok, I finished it and loved. I rated it 4 out of 4 stars. The concept of reveries was original and well-executed. The drag queen sorceress was a great character. I liked that the reader discovered the details about the world together with Kane. What did you think of the book?

Hi Gali. I'm glad you liked it. I gave it a 4 out of 5. I love that the book is LGBT-friendly and showed all kinds of love. There were some parts that got me confused so I did not give it a 5. I agree with you that the concept used was refreshing and new as I haven't read any book yet that has this kind of plot. Thanks for reading with me!

My favorite character is Poesy. And although she is the antagonist, I love how she exuded power and elegance.

I agree that some parts were confusing, but they became clear as the plot unfolded.

Poesy was a great antagonist! She was well-drawn. I also liked Ursula. Kane's younger sister was kind of irritating, though.

You're welcome! I heard about the book through you, so thank you for letting us know about the book. :)

I liked Ursula too! Sophia was annoying but I can understand where she is coming from. She's been covering for Kane all the time only to find out that Kane doesn't trust her. But that's really not the case because Kane just wants his sister safe that's why he doesn't tell her much.
