The Metaphysical Double Life of Eri Lane

The Metaphysical Double Life of Eri Lane by Jocelyn Nora Moore sounded light and fun and overall entertaining, so I picked it up this weekend.  It was so fun and entertaining that I whipped through it in less than two days.

Eri Lane is a gifted student, albeit with an attitude on her that makes me look like a kitten.  She and her best friend Malcolm are super-bright but otherwise normal high school students--or so it seems to their peers.  Rather than sleeping at night, they are guardians of the barrier between dreaming and being awake.  When strange things start to happen in the dream world, Eri and Malcolm must find a way to save those they love--and the world too while they are at it.

I had an absolute blast with this book.  The characters in this book were so well-developed that they blew my mind.  Ms. Moore is an adept writer and clearly understands how to tell a story and create characters that draw you in and with whom you want to spend time.  Her writing is sophisticated and she crafts sentences in a way that made me not want to put down this book.  I am not particularly in love with fantasy (as well all know well by now if you are a faithful reader), but Ms. Moore's writing transcended my aversion and kinda made me just want to be Eri Lane.  If you love sentences and structure as much as I do then you will love this book.

Have I mentioned how excellent a writer Ms. Moore is?

Get the book here.  99 cents, guys.
