Publisher's Summary

On the borderland between this world and the world of Quiddity, the sea of our dreams, sits Everville. For years, it has lived in ignorance of the gleaming shore on which it lies. But its ignorance is not bliss. Opening the door between worlds, Clive Barker delivers his characters into the heart of the human mystery; into a place of revelation, where the forces that have shaped our past - and are ready to destroy our future - are at work.

Baker's Dream Sea does not disappoint

The sequel to Everv illegal finds us reuniting with Grillo, Tess, Raul, Harry and even little Mave.

The story, even though long, flowed nicely. It helped to tie up loose ends and made for a great read !

Long & Detailed

Hard to follow some times. Barker's imagination is infinite and difficult to fathom. 24 years and no 3rd book...

Good Story Great Narrator

Good audio book. Narrator is wonderful. Story was good, no plot twist that was memorable, just a really good story. I would certainly recommend to a friend.

Wanted to like it.

Started off good, but couldn't keep interest in the characters or story after so long.

Unfinished work.

Interesting story with unique plot. I am sad that Clive Barker hasn't published book 3. I feel incomplete and cheated.

Decent, but not for me

It was decent enough to listen to. Not my style of writing, but I didn't regret it.

JUST DO IT.....

Well, I've read this book several times, I mean, come on, there's nobody out there who writes like our Mr Barker.
this is a first though..... having it read to me, just joined AUDIBLE n I lurrrve it!!!
if I could change anything it would be to stop men doing women's voices, never heard one that doesn't make me wanna wince! Sorry guys but notching your normal voice up a bit just don't cut the mustard, I know it's not as easy as just 'getting a lady in' however.......
so, from a former die-hard TALKING BOOK hater.... I am a convert and CLIVE BARKER is a God and EVERVILLE is a stonking good read....
JUST DO IT.......

Superb follow up to The Great and Secret Show.

This is a great Story. Superb narrative and amazing back story. Clive Barker has the most unique imagination in literature. My only criticism in the constant graphic sexual references. Every other page it seems someone is either having it, wanting it or imagining it. Some references make sense but it seems many of the others are completely irrelevant to the story.

The narrator has a good voice and tells the story well. it is a very good follow up to The Great and Secret Show. Can't wait for book 3, hurry up Mr. Barker!
