"Want to play a game?"
We pick up right where we left off in Nightmares -
And if I felt misdirected in Nocturnes - Requiem kept me on a tilt-a-whirl
Everything falls apart for Voss, falls in place for the Sandman and just implodes for Nola and Oli.
Requiem held me on the edge - quite literally - from beginning to the 'OH my goodness so did not see that coming' end.
It took all my strength not to flip ahead and peek - I am serious, I even attempted to justify it to myself "you know it will have a HEA so you aren't spoiling anything" (don't judge). I am glad I wrangled my inner beast and read each heart-pounding white knuckling page.
Nola's world is turned inside out and upside down. There is always a choice and for Nola, it will be an easy one. Amidst her anger and despair, she finds a flicker of hope that she can make this right. But will her feelings cloud her judgment? Will one failure to act the part cost her everything she was fighting to save?
Voss messes up ( give the sexy assassin a break this is all new to him) There really isn't anything more to say
Be prepared this goes in a direction that I never ever saw coming - You thought you knew - you don't have a clue.
Lake did an Amazing job with The Sandman Duet. An intense and well-plotted thriller that has all the components that make a story five stars.
