Gr 8 Up–Once there were three brothers—Declan, the eldest; Ronan, the middle whose dreams became reality; and Matthew, the youngest who was dreamed into existence by Ronan. After finding a painting of their deceased mother at the Fairy Market, the brothers are drawn into a dangerous world where anything can happen. Magic collides violently with art and dreams in this novel, and every chapter pulls the reader deeper into a story that starts out dark and gets progressively darker, stranger, and more convoluted. Warning: May cause sleepless nights, strange dreams, and obsessive glances over one’s shoulders to make sure nothing is creeping up from behind. A cliff-hanger ending will leave readers impatient for the next book in a projected trilogy.
VERDICT Atmospheric, weird, disjointed, and difficult to follow but intriguing as hell and almost impossible to put down.
