Konn Lavery returns us to his cool fantasy world in Mental Damnation: Dream. Having been sent to the surface from the underworld as part of a ploy, Krista has always been split between two realms. But now she finds herself dreaming up a new and dark place, one ruled by an even greater evil than she’s encountered before. Lavery’s world building is by far my favorite element of his work as are his likeable characters and fast-paced writing. If you like fantasy, this one’s for you!

I almost gave up on reading Mental Damnation: Dream because, not having read any of the series, I found the Introduction and Prologue far too long and wordy. Not until I was half way through chapter one did the story pick up enough to capture my interest. There is the usual problem, therefore, of not capturing the reader’s attention with the first few sentences of the book and them not persisting with it, which in this case would be a big loss! The tale of Krista and her disturbing dreams, Dread ...more

A beautifully written piece of art!!! The incredible imagination of the author is brought to life on the page both with the vivid descriptions of the worlds portrayed and the details of the characters. I was glued to the page needing to know what would happen next to the characters I've become deeply attached to. My bond deepened with those returning from the first book, and I quickly fell in love with the new ones. The action is incredible. Unexpected events left me wanting to dive into the boo ...more

Dark and Captivating!
Konn Lavery’s writing hooks you in by painting graphical imagery with each word that progressively moves the twisted fantasy story forward.
The book continues from the previous novel, Reality, but the backstory in the beginning chapters summarizes the plot which makes it easy to pick up if you haven’t ready Reality in a while or are new to the series.
This book dabbles in traditional fantasy underlines while the primary focus is about a very believable concept of a brain disea

after having read the previous book, I was able to have a better picture of the events in the prologue and introduction of this book.

I only read on the bus to and from work and in the bathroom so its quite rare for me to finish as fast as I did this one. however I find the tale very dark and mysterious; a wonderful treat compared to most fantasy novels. the way konn's pen/computer/whichever he chooses to write with, just flows gracefully and there aren't many holes left open.

The world Mr. Lavery created is absolutely captivating and the illustrations beautiful! The plot is focused around a disease called Mental Damnation in which the protagonist Krista is haunted by horrible hallucinations. Dreadweave Pass, a shared hallucination among the infected, is a limbo sort of place where the Weaver recycles evil souls into his army as abominations. The beginning of the story is a little slow, but once it picks up, you’ll be hooked!

So it took me a while to read this, not because the story is bad, but because the beginning was quite...wordy. There was a bit too much history at the beginning to hold my attention, and I could only read a paragraph at a time before I got bored. But if u can get past the first couple chapters you'll find a wonderful little story. I'm invested now an will continue to follow this story in the next book.

Mental Damnation may be one of my favorite fantasy series' of all time. The story is captivating, filled with interesting characters and unique locations. It flows so nicely and is so easy to read, and its only downfall is the abundance (enough to be noticable, but not enough to be annoying) of grammar mistakes that can be found. I would highly recomend this series.

Having picked up a copy of the prequel to this book, I was quickly drawn into a dark fantasy world lush with intrigue, suspense, and a deep well of madness.
A well from which Lavery expertly draws his brush and paints us a vivid tale that only grows richer and more intricate in this second installment of the series.
I appreciated the time the author took to provide us with a comprehensive back story and introduction, as this allowed me to let my imagination take control as my soul was carried fro
It was okay. I wanted this to be so much better than it was. The premise is phenomenal, but the storytelling is a let-down. It seems rushed in a lot of parts, like the author had plans to come back and fill in the rough draft, but then forgot.
