Scrape by Erin Kellison
Ok, the long awaited end to this Revelers series. Loved following this series, the characters and writing was so vivid and captivating they just suck you under the waters of Ms. Kellison’s Reve.
In this last book, The Sandman has come into the waking world, causing a major sandstorm on the East Coast of the United States of America. Sara is in the hospital from the gun shot in the last book, and Marshall Malcom Rook and Jordan are now in that sandstorm looking for Marshall Steve Coll; while Maisie is trying to hold on to her Dreamscape town, Maze City which was being used as a safe haven for the people in the blackmarket reves that had gotten collapsed on when the nightmares over it. Now she is fighting a hybrid that is trying to take her will as well as her city.
As Steve tries to fights the Sandman as he comes out of a reve, he loses his human side and is only able to be Darkside, will Maisie be able to accept him? Will Miriam be able to find the strength to do what she must top side so her son has a chance at a life? Rook and Jordan must find a way to warn everyone, wake those that need to be awaken to get this job done, leaving Jordan the only one awake with hybrid band on their way to the last safe house.
A hybrid toddler, a mean man teasing him to jump out of car over the side of the mountain, those were David’s cookies, what can a half nightmare toddler do in a tantrum and can Jordan react fast enough to take advantage of it?
Yes, this is final battle with the Sandman. Who will win? Will this group of people brought together by circumstance, not even sure if they like each other, be able to bond together to be a family? To defeat The God of the Reves? You must read this one to find out the end. I could not put this book down from start to finish. Straight action and tension to the last line. Loved every word. Five stars for this book, and the series as a whole. Thank you, Ms. Kellison, for taking us into your Dreamscape and allowing us to dream with you.
