Sara Dobie Bauer’s latest release, a darkish Christmas fairytale called He Sees You When You’re Sleeping, is a fascinating paranormal journey through time.
Nick, who is cursed to roam the world on Christmas Eve to give gifts to Believers, finds himself drawn to one particular boy whose tenuous hold on his ability to hope is fraying in the face of terrible circumstances. In the name of helping the boy, Nick becomes involved in a series of meetings through time, and through his involvement with Jack as a child and as an adult, discovers the truth about his own existence.
I’m not a fan of very dark fiction, but this one had enough of a supernatural lilt to give it justification and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Dobie Bauer is the Queen of creating a sensual and gothic atmosphere in her paranormal offerings and this one did not disappoint. I found myself wrapped up in Nick and Jack’s story and pleased by the originality of its delightful essence.
Don’t miss this one for Christmas 2020!
