The Dreaming Field by Ron Savage

This is the story of Jonathon Clayman and Simon Aaron. Having dreamed about each other since they were children, it is not until they are grown men that they become aware of each other in the waking world. Jonathon is now a politician and Simon a highly acclaimed artist. Unbeknownst to them though, their lives have been chosen for a higher purpose. a battle is raging between the Abyss and the Dreaming Field, and they have been chosen to help fight the battle. Will they be able to save themselves in the face of insanity, or is someone pulling their strings too tight?

I enjoyed this but found it a little confusing at the beginning as the different characters and settings were established. There were quite a few different threads of the story going on, and it took me a little while to sort out who was who. Once I had sorted things out in my head though, everything took off, and I couldn't put the book down. The characters were solid, and I cared about them and their lives and what happened to them. Indeed some of the bad guys were REALLY bad! The pace although slow to begin with, soon belted along. The story itself is different and quite dark, but that's what DarkFuse specialise in, and that's why I enjoy reading and reviewing their books!  All in all, a great book with a fantastic ending, that although a tad confusing to begin with, soon levels out to be a great horror that I recommend totally.
