The Dead City Blues

The Dead City Blues - Yelena Calavera I enjoyed this story, but felt as if the editing process was bit rushed - the story could have been tightened up a bit more. The setting of Joburg is used well and I enjoyed how it was worked into the story. The idea of our dreams and demons taking over is a very scary and intriguing idea. However, the climax was hard to understand and felt unnecessarily complicated without actually telling me much. However, I think if this was made into a series I'd read the next one.
