Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yep, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially this one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys perform dark magic rituals. 

The really weird thing is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where’s she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But they seem to know things about her in real life that they couldn’t possibly know, which is mystifying. Then again, Liv could never resist a good mystery. . 

My Thoughts

  Really, really stinking cute story, and I LOVE Liv and Mia... and Lottie and Princess Buttercup and Henry and Grayson..... Well, you get the picture! And I seriously wish that I could have dreams like that; the good ones, at least! The ending was a humdinger, and I thoroughly enjoyed the rather dark twist at the end. I am hoping that more of that darkness comes through in the next book, which I will absolutely be reading! 

  After the beginning, with the hilarious cheese incident, it took me a little bit of time to get back into the story. Once Liv starts school, and has her first dream, the book pulled me back in. I loved the characters in this one, so much. They were full of life, each very distinct in their personalities, and relate-able in some fashion or another. I loved seeing them all through Liv's eyes. Liv!! What a truly great MC. She was spunky, smart, snarky. Her relationship with one of the boys is a very cute addition to the story, and I really liked watching their romance bloom. 

  The Dream sequences were very very well written, and made me wish it were actually possible. I loved seeing Liv's reactions to everything that took place while she was dreaming. She was a Hoot! :) The final pages, when we start finding out the truth about the demon that was raised, and the reason for it, brought a new level to the story. It became a little more dark and ominous. And shocking! I loved it.

  The ending was perfect, with enough up in the air to make you ready for the next book, but not physically hurt you because it throws you off a cliff. I am genuinely excited for the next in the series. No doubt it will be fantastic. Can Kerstin Gier even write anything less than great?! I think not!

4 Stars!
