A tale of bloody retribution that blurs the line between the waking world and the terrors of the night.
First in dreams, then in waking nightmares, Crossfades are bleeding into the physical world. And now it’s up to Chuck—along with his partner, a woman named Control—to put a stop to it. Because there’s no telling what might come over from the other side.
Nowhere near as enthralling or electrifying as Crossfades, yet a good read.
Chuck faces trouble through a reunion of sorts. Excitement starts and stalls. This didn’t grab my attention all the way through and the high horror element I found in Crossfades was noticeably absent. The narrative felt stagnant, felt bland. It’s almost as if the author ran out of steam creating Crossfades and Bleedovers was forced virtually an afterthought.
A good read but nothing special. Chuck is a character ultimately unlimited but here he felt caged and unexciting. Potential ignored.
All in all an ambitious attempt but falling a wee bit short. Looking forward to the next installment.
