Intricate and Well Written
This book is a rarity. It has an extremely good story performed by an outstanding narrator.
The ending where Greg runs into the cops from the hospital is very satisfying. But the scene where Laura is initially drawn into someone else's dream is also very well-written. The final fight scene is incredibly memorable and well-done. Sylvie finding the Instrument and the scene in the Antique bookstore is completely original. This book is filled with excellent scenes and just plain good writing.
She does a fantastic job. So good that after the first chapter, I ceased to notice her. I was simply wrapped up in the story.
Yes, the intricate story draws you in. The different threads are skillfully woven together to create an excellent sci-fi/fantasy tale.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Into The Aether
It took me a bit to get into this book. For a while I wasn't quite sure what was going on. Each chapter in the beginning is from a different characters viewpoint and there are a lot of characters, for me it just felt disjointed. Things started to make a little more sense and started flowing smoother with the story starting in chapter 6 which is almost 2 hrs into the book. The dream sequences can be confusing at times. Even with a rocky start the story slowly and continually pulls you in and weaves an entertaining, interesting and unusual story.
The story shifts between the lives of August, Cybil and Lara until their paths eventually cross and pull the story together. Mythological beings as well as hybrid humans living/hiding/fighting in, around and among the human world. Things are not always as they seem. There are two sides to every story.
Suzanne Elise Freeman did a good job with the narration. Pleasant voice very easy on the ears. Good character voices. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Some parts of the narration that are not a character speaking are a little monotone/flat at times, but overall was enjoyable.
