disclaimer – i received a copy of this book via hydra in exchange for an honest review.
welcome to the institute, the one thing standing between you and the supernatural. now say hello to chuck. he works for the institute, projecting himself into crossfades to help spirits who are stuck crossover into the afterlife. now get ready to run, because the crossfades, those in-between spaces where souls torture themselves and each other, are bleeding into our reality and it’s up to chuck to stop them.
let’s get this out of the way first – bleedovers was spectacular. i’m not sure what the “dystopian” part of the title really refers to but william todd rose has written an incredibly good horror novella. the characters are likeable, the spirits are scary, and the crossfades are completely freaky (imagine those times when you’re not sure if you’re awake or asleep but you’re still scared to death). apparently there’s a novella that takes place before this one and i definitely have to pick it up.
four out of five stars
