There are hangovers, there are bad hangovers, and then there's waking up inside someone else's head. Thirty-something bartender Charlie Wilkes is faced with this exact dilemma when he wakes to find finds himself trapped inside The Black Room; a space consisting of impenetrable darkness and a huge, ethereal screen floating in its center. It is through this screen that he sees the world of his female host, Minnie.
How did he get there? What has happened to his life? And how can he exist inside the mind of a troubled, fragile, but beautiful woman with secrets of her own? Uncertain whether he's even real or if he is just a figment of his host's imagination, Charlie must enlist Minnie's help if he is to find a way out of The Black Room, a place where even the light of the screen goes out every time Minnie closes her eyes....
Really interesting to see how the characters have adapted to their situation and how their relationship has developed as a result of it. You really feel the characters need to find more information and the suspense of what Charlie discovered/did in his world and how it might affect Mini in hers. Chuck gets more and more interesting as the discrepancies start to pile up. This story was really gripping, especially in the final few minutes, it had me scrambling to get the next book downloaded!
powering though all 4 parts in one day but it is worth it for this story
