4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

During Morpheus’s incarceration, three dreams escaped the Dreaming and are now loose on the world. A woman named Rose Walker is searching for her brother, yet keeps being sucked into weird dreams. Morpheus and Rose’s lives merge and could lead to the destruction of all dreamers and the world.

This was weird and fascinating, much like the first volume. This one had a whole convention of serial killers and a lot of gore and death. I thought Rose’s story was very interesting and wondered if she will appear in future volumes, or her brother. 

I was sad that we didn’t see anything of Death but I still enjoyed the continuation of Morpheus’s story. His incarceration really messed up his world and he has a lot of clean up left to do. We briefly meet his sibling Desire in this one and I hope we end up meeting the other siblings. Overall, this was fascinating and I can’t wait to learn what is going to happen next.
