Gus Stevens has the worst of both worlds. By night, he resides in the Dream World, a place steeped in magic and exotic dangers. By day, a giant snow-lizard stalks him in the Real World, looking to make Gus its next meal. In order to regain control of his life, young Gus must undergo a psychoanalytic exorcism. But this comes with a high price—he must break away from everything he has ever thought was real. Author Abbie Krupnick blends the magical and the mundane in this avant-garde dark fantasy where nothing is as it seems.

Gus Stevens lives in two worlds. At night he is in the Dream World with a Magician and three mother’s. It is a world with lots of perils and magic. During the day he lives in the Real World where a large white lizard called Winter is hunting him down. Gus is being run ragged by these two worlds and needs to take some control but that is going to be harder than he thinks. I have to say that I was not expecting this story to go where it did. I couldn’t help but feel for Gus as he is navigating the Dream World and everything there. I loved everything that happened there and how magic affected it. Then you have Winter basically destroying everything trying to get to Gus. It was interesting how although he does damage it disappears afterwards. Clearing there is more to this story than what we initially see. This was a really good story. I really liked the mix of magic, real life, and other things in between. This is a story that I recommend checking out. It will surprise you. I received Holy from Reading Addiction Virtual Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
