Here is a book for fans of real horror. The narrator is the protagonist and the narrative is wonderfully done in the first person, arresting the reader. The protagonist is in an awful mental state, because she is aware of the nightmares and even wonders why she should be having such dreams. When the narrative begins, she can barely walk, locked up in a dark place. She says: “The only thing harder than trying to move is trying to invoke a single memory. My name…” The paranormal experiences that accompany the nightmares are like dying in the body of another person. The narrative is suspenseful, fast-paced, and emotionally intense. From the very beginning of the narrative, the reader becomes engrossed with the question of whether the protagonist can wake up from her nightmares and, as the tension builds, they begin to care for her and the fate of the lost souls, the 'preta'. Dexter Morgenstern’s writing is excellent and it evokes powerful and frightening images, allowing readers to follow the horrors of this tale easily. Eternal Victim will leave the reader not wanting to sleep with the light off. It’s engrossing and imbued with a unique sense of originality. A riveting story that explores the themes of murder, evil, and redemption.
