It was okay. This book is only 34pgs. Isn't one of his better stories. Spoiler: It started off well, but I didn't like then ending at all. The punks & the man in "grey" made no sense to me nor did the sisters. I got that Len was captivated by the song & wanted to help the sisters. Why did her song kill the pigeons, was it the high notes? But not all of them died. Then he wakes up in a pentagram. Again didn't get it. Who was the dreamer? Too many questions & no answers. This wasn't one of his better stories.
