Multi-platinum recording artist and Blink-182 founder Tom DeLonge once again teams up with New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young to continue the award-winning, critically-acclaimed transmedia project—Poet Anderson—inspired by a Stanford University study on how your dreams can effect your reality.

In the Waking World, Jonas Anderson works as a doorman for the Eden Hotel, dividing his free time between seeing his girlfriend, Samantha Birnham-Wood, and visiting his comatose brother Alan. In the Dream World, he is Poet Anderson, a Dream Walker, a guardian of the Dreamscape charged with protecting sleeping innocents from the nightmares that threaten both worlds.

But Jonas remains tormented by his own nightmare—his failure to rescue Alan from the Dreamscape and free him from his coma. Together, Jonas and Alan fought side-by-side against the night terror entity known as REM. Even though they defeated the vicious monster, Alan continues to waste away in a hospital bed while Jonas’ guilt eats away at his soul.

REM may have lost a battle, but the war continues. His Night Stalkers roam the Dreamscape, hunting for Jonas and the other poets capable of traversing the waking and dreaming realms. And now, demonic shadow creatures are possessing the spirits of dreamers and using their bodies to enter the Waking World.

Jonas can no longer avoid his destiny. To save reality from the maelstrom of nightmares, Poet Anderson will have to sacrifice the Dreamscape…

My Thoughts

I have been waiting on this book for what seems like forever and let me just tell you that this book was more than I could have imagined. While contemporary fiction is still my ultimate go-to in reading, I'm more than happy to step into the dream realm of Poet Anderson. Suzanne Young and Tom DeLonge have gone to the limits in this follow-up to Poet Anderson  . . . Of Nightmares.

In Poet Anderson  . . . In Darkness, the stakes are higher, the risks are greater, and the losses, well they're unimaginable. The horrors are scarier and the drama will leave you haunted - this book will give you Nightmares.

There are many layers to the storytelling. Poet Anderson  . . . In Darkness isn't just a story about fighting the demons that haunt our nightmares. It's about love and sacrifice and the risks you are willing to take to save others. 

I love the multi-media experience of this saga because it's a story that can be imagined but it's also visual - with the comic books and sort film. I've only read one installment of the comic, but after finishing Poet Anderson  . . . In Darkness, I'm going to read EVERYTHING I can find about these characters. 

This series is so good and I'm already anxious to find out what will happen next. A must read!
