As the months past and Adam recovers he starts having strange experiences, including precognitive dreams.
The plot of this story uncoils with lots of dramatic tension and nail biting action. There are several narrative misdirects that lead the reader to mistrust everyone.
Samnee’s art is stellar! The entire book is in black and white but it’s gorgeously rendered. There is great sense of kinetic energy in the page that really works for the dramatic elements of the story, A great read!
