Okay so this one had me hooked from the start and not for the reasons I expected. The synopsis talks of a vampiric figure called ‘The Low Man’ who seems to be murdering people in town, which was the main reason I wanted to read this. Going in The Low Man is actually mentioned way less than I expected, but what I did get was a dark, atmospheric story filled with vampire vibes and a love interest who is heavily influenced by Edward Cullen (but just the darker side of him…)
For the first 100 pages or so I was a bit worried that In My Dreams I Hold a Knife was going to be your average thriller, good but nothing to write home about. However something managed to really catch my attention and from then on I couldn’t put it down. The back and forth between the university years and the reunion started to really ramp up and I genuinely didn’t guess who the killer was.
