I don't know why I keep trying to read Lovecraft-influenced books. With very few exceptions, I don't like them, I don't like the threat of the eternal darkness, and they generally don't end well. Yet I still keep picking them up, hoping for something different. I guess it's the eternal optimist in me.
I couldn't finish this book, maybe I'll come back and try. I'm still unsure why there was a chapter that was 90% in French, I hope I didn't miss anything important.
A nice companion piece to 'agents of dreamland'
Not really a sequel to, I would say a companion piece to her great novel 'agents of dreamland'. The story flows in a non-linear manner which is pretty easy to follow. I would purchase again.
