“Red sky at morning, sailors take warning. Red sky at night, sailor’s delight”NOW THIS DESERVES 5 SCARY STARS.
“In all of our experiences together, there always was that moment that I could have turned back and I never ever did. Even if it scared me to the core, to the very soul and fiber of my being, I still went forward into the unknown. Some may call that brave. I don't think I'd call it that. Stubborn beyond repair seemed more fitting.”
Oh and this book - i have been warned that it was scary - but holly mother of aliens, this was terrifying in some parts O_o (well not for me as much as it was for characters). This time, it is also a question of sanity and trust. Perry and Dex literally crumble, fall apart, and break. I have never seen them this way before and it was kind of new perspective.... I felt so much while reading this book - i was angry, scared and i had a good laugh - so it makes DSM the best EIT book so far.
This time, Dex and Perry go to investigate the Chinese Leper colony island - this time there will be only two of them. Nobody goes on that island, it's cursed and it's terrifying.
And there is no escape.
Perry and Dex both drastically change in this book, they need to trust each other more than ever......but what happens when its hard to believe?
“No. It’s always been like this. I know it has been. I feel like I can’t tell what’s a dream. What’s real. I’m going crazy. I have to be. What if all the world is inside of my head?”
