Rating: 5 stars
Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.
See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.
And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.(
My Thoughts: Kaylee does not know what to do about Nash. She wants to get back together with him, but she is having a hard time trusting him. While she is pondering, a new girl, Sabine, comes to their school. She is Nash's ex and a mara, a literal walking nightmare who feeds off fear. Since the first day Sabine appeared, bad things have been happening at the school and worst of all she wants Nash back.
As always, Tod is hilarious, but we also see a serious, wiser side to him in this book. I like Sabine. She is catty, determined, and a bit intimidating.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book.
