YA Raven’s Dream Horror Novel Celebrates Gothic Girl Subculture
Pale white skin. Dark hair. All dressed in black. Dark eyeliner. Black lipstick. A contempt for materialist capitalism and “BCBG” concerns. In short, gothic girls.
The Raven’s Dream. From the plot description:
Raven’s new clock is not like other clocks. He has the power to bring her to another world known as Dreaming, a world full of weird magic and quirks that appeal to his Gothic sensibility – but not all is as it seems. A monstrous evil lurks at the heart of the Dream, watching Raven’s every move. Nightmares and dreams await you …
Written in a style similar to Coraline’s, Raven’s Dream is filled with creatures as wonderful as Chinese dragons, wax figures, terrifying clowns, and mysterious chants. Meanwhile, in the waking world, Raven must face preppy tyrants led by the evil rich girl Lilly, and even more menacingly, a mysterious company called the Gatekeepers who attempt to take back the clock that Raven discovered.
Released with great reviews, Raven’s Dream is a celebration of the Gothic subculture. Will Raven make it out of this YA horror adventure? Lily the book and find out.
Nightmares and dreams await you.
And remember: death is never the end.
