Summary from Goodreads:
All her life Fern has been told she is blind to reality—but what if she is the only one who can truly see?
Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear “normal,” she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.
Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man isn’t a hallucination after all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.
Shorter review than usual today-- I said all that I wanted to say in less words than normal! Planning to publish a longer review at some point, but for now this will do. :)
I LOVED THIS BOOK. So much. It was so clever, concise, tied together, and full of beautiful Christian themes. I loved it to pieces. Suspense, tension, amazing characters, a little of the paranormal, mysterious, sweet, tangible…. Fern was so realistic and lovable. Tristan was amazing of course. Elinore’s tie in was beautiful. I loved the essence and the heart beat behind the book. It was concise and unpredictable, yet structured and solid. Highly recommended to any and all.
