Midnight in a Perfect World - Ambrose Ibsen


5 STARS!!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A mysterious suicide. Horrific specters walking the streets. A drug that promises to change the world. An apocalyptic cult.

Something is stirring in the city of Duluth, Minnesota. Ever since a celebrated researcher announced the creation of a new experimental drug—a drug with the potential to cure the mind of countless ills—people have been disappearing. When a grad student involved with the drug's development unexpectedly commits suicide, a private detective is tasked with unearthing the details of her tumultuous final days.

This miracle drug may not be what it seems. Others touched by the drug begin to see things—horrible things—and find themselves transported into a nightmarish world where an ancient evil stirs.

Those who taste the drug are left spiraling into horror. Dark figures tail them on the street, and the scenery of their nightmares begins to encroach upon waking life, blurring the lines between dreams and reality. Their terrifying experiences make up the individual fragments of a dire mosaic. As the pieces fall into place, they come to realize the unspeakable horrors that await all of mankind.

Midnight is looming, and the sun may never rise again over the city of Duluth.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Once upon a time, a young Ambrose Ibsen discovered a collection of ghost stories on his father's bookshelf. He was never the same again.

Apart from horror fiction, he enjoys good coffee, brewed strong.

MY THOUGHTS -
OH MY GOSH this book was so good! I have read 3 or 4 of his books and this certainly is the best so far! You can probably judge a book by how long it takes you to read it. I read this in two days and the whole last half in one sitting. This is the kind of book that you don't want to read after dark, but just can't help yourself - you can't stop reading! I was actually sitting in bed around midnight finishing it.

I love scary stories! I'm a horror fan from way back when I was a teen when all I watched was horror movies. This is seriously one of the best. It starts right off and just never quits. The whole mind altering drug idea is fantastic! 

If you are into scary/horror books at all and want something with a more modern twist - the is definitely one you will want to try! This will probably be one of my favorite books of the year.

I think Netflix should do an "original movie" with this one - it would for sure go viral LOL!
