In a terrible desert of pain and self-discovery, the two shall meet.
Truths shall be revealed…
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
This isn’t the type of book I’d normally read, but since it’s quite short I agreed to give it a chance.
I have to admit that I’m not quite sure what I read. If I had to guess, my interpretation would be that Leila got high and went on one hell of a trip. There’s just so much in and out that it’s like trying to put together a puzzle without having all the pieces.
I did however like the interaction between Leila and the Sandman, but it just seemed to be missing something…and I have no idea what that is, but the hole was there nonetheless.
The writing style reminds me of a poem with dialogue. It’s a vague story touching on love, magic, and religion.
