Book Review: The Nightmare Within by Glen Krisch

The Nightmare Within is an excellent debut horror novel from Glen Krisch.

(Partial) Book Description
Maury has the power to pull dreams into the waking world, giving the dreams corporeal form. These dream-people range from seemingly human figures, to monstrous beasts compelled by the most primal urges. Once exposed to the real world, the dreams evolve, adapting to their surroundings.

Maury is gathering dreams for display at Lucidity, the soon-to-open Museum of Dreams. From a boy named Kevin, he removes Mr. Freakshow, a nightmare feeding on the trauma of Kevin having recently witnessed his father's murder.

[...]

Kevin will do whatever it takes to be free of his nightmare, once and for all.
Maury will do whatever it takes to protect the love of his life.
Mr. Freakshow will do whatever it takes to realize his immortality.

Will Kevin survive his nightmare?

Despite my love of horror, it's rare for me to find a book I consider scary. Not only was The Nightmare Within scary, it was heartbreaking and filled with great characters. The Nightmare Within was a multidimensional and unpredictable read, and I enjoyed the heck out of it.

I knew, knew I was going to regret waiting so long to tear into The Nightmare Within.

If you are a horror fan, I highly recommend you check out Glen Krisch. You can get The Nightmare Within by itself or coupled with Where Darkness Dwells in Twice as Dark: Two Novels of Horror (for less than $5!). Just don't wait as long as I did to read it!

8/10: Great Read

    Very true, Glen. There is nothing better on a cold, dark night than a scary read.
