Back when I was still living in Singapore, I was approached to review Forsaken by Andrew Van Wey. I loved, and raved over, it so much that I was given the opportunity to review A Hollow Dream of Summer's End. That was almost two years ago, so imagined how surprised I was to learn that there is a sequel to A Hollow Dream of Summer's End, and yay, I got a review copy for that too!

Without giving too many spoilers, Aiden from the first book has died. And now, he's in Everland, a world completely di

If you enjoyed A Hollow Drem Summer's End, your going to love this.

Aidens grandfather helps to guide him on to the next series of heart pounding, palm sweating adventures. Realizing he is in fact dead, Aiden searches for the answers o

Having just turned the last page, I am left with the bittersweet feeling that I end up with after finishing a really good book. Grateful for the experience but sad that it is over.

- A lot of spelling, grammar, syntax, etc errors.

- Some characters and plot could have been better developed/explained (I for one am hoping to see that happen in the sequel(s)

This was the second work by Andrew Van Wey that I picked up, the first being A Hollow Dream of Summer's End, the novella that leads into this book. Considering I enjoyed that immensely - and at times it made me sit back and think 'wow' - it's unsurprising that this novel really pushed my buttons.

Van Wey further elaborates on the world he introduces us to in the novella - I really would recommend reading it first, it's a great introduction to both character and premise - and weaves a rich and det

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This sequel is just as good as the first book. I enjoyed it very much. I have read maybe a total of ten horror books before this series and I find myself wondering if I missed out on a wonderful genre. But the more I thought about it I think it is this author. He has a way of creating a dark world that seems so realistic. You feel like you are living in the book and lose yourself in the pages.

This review can also be found on Gingernuts of Horror. Pop long there for a visit. Loads of things to read including reviews, articles and author interviews.

This review of A Hollow Dream – Eternal Autumn by Andrew Van Wey is the result of an ARC sent to Ginger Nuts of Horror in return for an honest review.

Please note this book is the second in the A Hollow Dream series, the first being A Hollow Dream Of Summer’s End. This review will have some connections to the first book which could be classed

This full-fledged novel takes place immediately after the preceding novella, A Hollow Dream of Summer’s End, leaves off. In that opening story the child protagonist, Aiden Park, has suffered a tragic accident while on a final sleepover with his friends before the new school year begins. Unfortunately, this accident has taken Aiden’s life. We find out at the end of that novella that the horrific encounter faced by Aiden and his friends did not actually occur in this reality, but instead occurred ...more

I received this book through Goodreads' First reads program.

A Hollow Dream - Eternal Autumn is the second book in Andrew Van Wey's A Hollow Dream series, though it can be read as a stand-alone novel or as the first book in the series. If you intend to read A Hollow Dream of Summer's End, though, you should read that book first, as much of its story is given away by this novel.

Unlike the first book, this is more of a full-length novel, and though it has the same main character and follows almost

An incredibly imaginative and enjoyable series! Andrew Van Wey is a very talented writer: his characters' dialogues (especially the ones between the 'three amigos') are so on point that you can hear them in your mind as you are reading. He is also masterful at creating atmosphere - the sounds that don't quite belong, the light that looks just a little wrong, a shadow where none should be. These are used with a wonderful light hand, building to a crescendo that delivers. None of that 'in your ...more

This is the second in a series! Though they do not have to be read in sequence, I found that had I read the first book first I would have understood the second much better. Even with that I thought this book was quite intriguing. To live multiple lifetimes in just a few moments and yet it still felt like lifetimes. The characters in this book are well defined and the story takes on multiple rides. There are several ahh haa moments and a few you will not even see coming! Very well written and qui

I felt like this book just dragged on and on for me. I was expecting this to be in more of the horror genre after reading the book before this, but this just became a predictable generic fantasy novel.
