A bewitchingly beautiful, spine-chilling story of courage, friendship and fears that come alive after dark... Never stay out after the Switching Hour... Never let the outside in... Amaya lives with her grandmother, her small brother Kaleb and her pet goat in a land suffering a terrible drought. Every night, the doors must be locked after twilight, the Switching Hour, because the drought has awoken Badeko, a creature that snatches people away to eat their dreams. Three days later, the memory that they existed is gone from those that knew them, and those that are left are afflicted with The Sorrow Sickness - a grief which consumes a person without them knowing why. When Kaleb is taken by Badeko, Amaya must journey into the terrifying forest to find her brother before she forgets him.

An atmospheric read set during a drought, with a dream-eating monster that kept me looking over my shoulder as I read. The setting was so immersive, I was right there feeling the heat and parched dryness. For... More
