*I received a free review copy in exchange for an honest review of this book.
SURREALITY is a tantalizing and well-paced horror story about a documentary TV show which blurs the lines between hype and reality when the hosts get over their head in a homicidal urban legend. It’s immersive and excellently told, cultivating a nebulous feeling through meta-conversation about uncertainty between hype and reality. Short, bloody, and creepy, don’t miss SURREALITY.
