One hundred pages into "The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters," I still was not quite sure if this book was going to be super weird, or super cool. Luckily for me, it turned out to be the latter. I've never read anything quite like this: a victorian sci-fi mystery thriller.
The premise is this: Three previously unrelated protagonists join forces against a sinister cabal whose weapons appear to be mind-control and sex. Lots and lots of sex.
Did I mention this book is only for adults? A number of scenes deal explicitly with sexual themes, but they (surprisingly often) advance the action of the plot and further the development of the characters. While many scenes are quite graphic, I would not call them gratuitous.
Anyway, I would recommend this book to fans of mystery and fantasy/sci-fi, as long as one has an open mind and is prepared to stumble through some very confusing exposition before the plot clarifies. (It is, after all, a mystery) The protagonists are worthy of our empathy and I found myself rooting for their triumph to the very end. There was a palpable sense of urgency from the very beginning that kept me turning the pages.
Definitely worth a look.
