Review: Scrape (Reveler #8) by Erin Kellison

The last battle will be a nightmare…

The Sandman has broken through to the waking world, bringing with Him a monster of a storm. Mirren Lambert and Vince Blackman set out to force him back into his own realm, while Malcolm Rook and Jordan Lane are cornered by an old enemy intent on revenge. They learn that there are no rules when fighting for the ones you love.

In the midst of the chaos, Harlen Fawkes is charged with finding a way to make dreaming safe again. As nightmares lurk in the fringes, waiting to attack, he is driven to a bold decision that will change the world Darkside forever. All the while, his heart is with Sera—will the love of his life ever wake again?

Steve Coll must come to grips with his altered nature. His passion for Maisie Lane transcends the darkness, and he becomes both a fearsome nightmare and the hero humanity so desperately needs. Armed with hope and love, he strikes out to defeat a powerful god. But will it be enough? Or has dreaming just become too dangerous?

Scrape is the eighth and final installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well. And behind them all is a shadowy entity called the Sandman.

Revel with me.

Finally!  The long awaited conclusion to this rather riveting serial.  I was beginning to despair that it would ever arrive.

When last I was “Darkside” there didn’t seem to be much hope that things would ever be able to work out at all for any of the intrepid characters of this harrowing story.  Things were looking very dire in deed.

But, as with most stories that come under the “romance” genre in general, and “fantasy” in particular, things miraculously work out somehow.  After all the twists and turns that happened throughout this serial, it was amazing how everything worked out.  Some were nowhere near what one would expect, but were actually rather interesting and satisfying resolutions.

In spite of the fact that this was most definitely a serial, and I have a distinct distaste for serials, Reveler kept me interested and coming back with each new installment.  I am glad I stayed with it until the mostly satisfying ending.

I say “mostly” because I had the feeling of things being too pat.  Almost abrupt in the resolutions.  Although each of the couples reached relatively satisfying resolutions, I was still left with the feeling of things being unfinished.  Maybe it is the nature of the serial.  Or maybe I just had greater expectations. *shrugs* Or, is the author planning a spin off or two?  Who knows?

I enjoyed “Reveling” and am almost sad to see it end.  I think it will stay with me a while.  It has left me with things to think about.
