Behind the Eyes: Enter the City of Nightmares

In the City of Nightmares, one haunted girl is taking back more than just her dreams.

In a drowned city on the edge of the sea lives a girl in a tower.

But this is no fairytale.

Every moment of Cole’s life is strictly regulated, right down to her thoughts. Though even Refuge can’t control the rebellious ghost who haunts her, tempting her with visions of a world untroubled by monsters. But even just dreaming of a better life is perilously out of reach—if she wants to survive the ravening nightmares.

“It was the dead man’s expression that drew me . . .”

Too bad death doesn’t care about good intentions. Confronted with a dangerously tempting proposition by a mesmerizing, golden-eyed stranger, Cole manages to cling to her training and escape . . . Only to stumble across a shattered corpse—and a deadly conspiracy.

That’s just day one.

“I call upon the Mara . . .”
Cole’s life is over if she can’t outrun the enforcers, outsmart the monsters, and take back her stolen power. Her quest for truth, vengeance, and a life worth living races from the dizzying dystopian heights to the dazzling carnivalesque depths of her nightmare-infested tower. Can she reclaim her broken city—and long-lost threadwitch’s touch—in time to avoid a bloody end?

She’s about to become their worst nightmare.
