Don’t Close Your Eyes. Sophie Cavanaugh is not going to let her freak of a cousin’s strange psychiatric condition ruin high school for them both. Not after all the work she’s put into cultivating the right look, and friends, and reputation. But then, Sophie sees something so frightening she lets out a blood-curdling scream—and finds herself stuck in a bizarre parallel world where nothing is safe and deadly creatures lurk just out of sight, waiting for her to close her eyes and sleep...forever. Could this world be real? Or does insanity run in the family...?
Ehhh. I dunno. I can’t knock the writing because Rachel Vincent is phenomenal. Her entire Soul Screamers series is fantastic and I love it as a whole, but I just can’t bring myself to like Sophie even a little bit. We are not supposed to like her but I thought after reading he novella that maybe I’d have a soft spot for her like I did Sabine and …. I DO NOT. I simply don’t like her. I don’t like her character and she needs to friggin’ grow up and stop being so self centered and annoying. This new character that Ms. Vincent is bringing out in the novella and will appear in Before I Wake sounds pretty exciting though. Should have left Sophie in the underworld!
