A Game of You is proof Gaiman can write adult horror. It's a messed up mixture of fairy tales, childhood dreams, violence and family drama. And somehow in the end it all ties together with the main plot. Brilliant!

Didn't like it as much as the former ones but still pretty inventive.

Series is really kicking in to gear now. I hope it keeps to the level of volumes 4 and 5
