Book Review

Zoë Duncan (Lightning Books)

Eve Lanner has an incredibly traumatic past: the loss of her family through war has dictated the way she has lived her life since. Maintaining barriers and using drink and casual sex to fill the aching gaps in her existence, she finds it hard to let anyone see her true self. She is haunted by dreams that intrude more and more on her waking life. Eventually, she is drawn into Enanti, another world where her arrival has been awaited. Here she must finally acknowledge the scars of her past and through this acceptance save her new friends from the forces of darkness which threaten them. With alternating chapters set in London, Enanti and poignant excerpts relating to dreams, this novel has a lyrical quality that movingly deals with loss and memory.
