The sort of bizarre and sanguine cover of this book is bound to catch to your eye. I assure you, its contents do not fall short of its presentation. This book is fresh and campy with its moments of darkness. The author has a firm grip on the world it takes place in and showcases all its grueling realities, whilst maintaining a consistent tone throughout.

When he comes across a shady character that agrees to exchange places with a person living in a magical reality, it's seemingly a dream come true. There's a catch though, the trade will be permanent.

Poor Darin quickly learns that what he imagined to be a fantasy adventure is far more grueling and
