Nika knows that the time to save her sister is running out. She has vowed to search for her, and for nine years she has kept that promise.
Madoc is living on borrowed time and he knows it. Trying to keep his sanity is hard enough, but with Nika around, the only thought in his mind is to have sex with her and damn the consequences.
Everyone assumes Nika is insane because of her obsession with finding her supposedly deceased sister, but having Madoc doubt her is the hardest. With her link to her sister fading, Nika must find a way for someone to believe her. Can she get Madoc to get past his own stupid heroic intentions toward her and see the truth through her? Or is she doomed to stand by the sidelines as her link to her sister slowly but surely dwindles down until it is severed forever?
Living Nightmare is a complicated tale that involves many different plots in which the twists and turns within the story lead to various characters and their roles in this series. I must say that there were times I felt that reading this book was like turning on the television and trying to understand an intricate show that was halfway through the second season. But as I read further, Ms. Butcher’s written word began to grab a hold of my imagination and lead me on a ride unlike anything I have read before. Not only did I begin to feel the different emotions that Nika and Madoc felt, I began to empathize with some of the other complicated characters as their stories began to unfold. If you have read this series from the beginning then you will surely love this tale, but if you are only just beginning, you may find it hard to understand all that is going on.
