Thought I’d try my hand at Goodreads Monday this week. This meme was originally started by Lauren’s Page Turners, and involves picking a book from your Goodreads TBR list and explaining why you want to read it. This week’s book is: Reverie by Ryan La Sala.
All Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember how he got there, what happened after, and why his life seems so different now. And it’s not just Kane who’s different, the world feels off, reality itself seems different.
As Kane pieces together clues, three almost-strangers claim to be his friends and the only people who can truly tell him what’s going on. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident. And when a sinister force threatens to alter reality for good, they will have to do everything they can to stop it before it unravels everything they know.
This wildly imaginative debut explores what happens when the secret worlds that people hide within themselves come to light.
While I enjoy reading a fantasy and mystery based novel I can be quite picky about the tropes in the genres. That said, this one ticks all the boxes for me and was a must-add on to my TBR as soon as I read the premise. I’m interested in finding out more about Kane’s ‘friend group’ dynamic and whether they truly are his friends and loyal, or perhaps something more sinister is going on? Also… the change in setting hinted at in the premise has me intrigued! What the heck is happening in this story???
