    A magical, queer romp!

    I loved the flamboyance and sheer queerness of this book and it was super imaginative and creative. This story is campy, over the top, and exactly what I was expecting from La Sala, knowing his twitter persona. It started very strong with a creepy mystery that immediately drew me in. When the nature of the weirdness became clearer I was a bit hesitant but still willing to go with it. Things quickly became very bizarre and surreal. The real world and imaginary worlds or reveries as they are called get all tangled up and mashed together and it’s difficult to unravel what is happening in the real world and what is happening in the imaginary ones. I’m still not sure about the real world consequences for things that happen in the reveries and I never quite wrapped my head around the whole concept. I have to admit I am imminently logical and look for explanations for everything and this book is the opposite of logical and straight forward. Reverie is a really fun read with a gay main character whose super power is to shoot rainbows out of his fingers and a possibly villainous drag queen sorceress. It was a fun ride but I really wanted more in terms of explanation. I wanted to know how and why things were happening and the only answer I got was that it was magic and so no more explanation was needed. I wanted to know more about the reveries and how all of the people around them didn’t notice the weird things going on. Are they invisible until you’re inside them? How do people not just accidentally walk into a reverie? Near the end with multiple reveries happening at the same time as the real world it all got a bit confusing and messy. I think this story would be most appealing to readers who can just go with the flow and not ask questions about the mechanics. It’s obviously a magical world and the laws that apply to our world do not apply to this one. I think it’s a mistake to try to make it all make sense. It should be enjoyed for what it is which is a magical, queer romp unlike anything you’ve ever read before. Thank you to Sourcebooks Fire for providing an Electronic Advance Reader Copy via NetGalley for review.
