Gotham meets Strange the Dreamer in this thrilling young adult fantasy about a cowardly girl who finds herself at the center of a criminal syndicate conspiracy, in a city where crooked politicians and sinister cults reign and dreaming means waking up as your worst nightmare.

Ness and the only other survivor of the explosion – a Nightmare boy with an agenda of his own – must find their way back to the city and uncover the sinister truth behind the attack…
