Summary: “Out of nothing, we create something.”
Arianna has spent her entire life being called a dreamer, an artist who created a world no one else can see. And for her entire life, she has taken the medication that keeps that world – and the one who brought her there – at bay.
Now an adult, Arianna reawakens that part of herself kept locked away in the darkest corners of her mind. When she hides her medicine from her fiancé’s ever-watchful eye, he returns – the shadow in the night who collects her for an adventure known only in her fantasies.
But something is different about this world called The Never. It is no longer the cheerful place filled with light and laughter that she knew as a child. Now, the sea creatures drag their visitors into the depths of murky waters. The natives battle to the death against the tribe of children. And the pirates, led by the feared captain called The Hunter, seek out Arianna for their own sinister plans.
As Arianna goes deeper into The Never, she discovers just what her connection to the land means – and must choose between her life rooted in reality, and the world where anything is possible.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.This book is different than any other book I’ve read.
We all have daydreamed, or played make believe as a child. What if the world we created came to life? That is what it’s like for Arianna. Arianna can go to a different world that only she knows exsists. Her mother and fiance make sure to give her medication to stop what they call dillusions. Is it really a dillusion or just another part of what makes Arianna who she is? Things are not always what they seem either though. Arianna has many obsticules to over come in both the “real” world and the world she calls The Never.
This is the second book by the author I have read and I love her writing style. She is able to capture the story she is telling in such a way that you can feel yourself being part of the story. I would love to read other work by her.
