No Time to Cry is a work of fiction in the epic fantasy subgenre and forms the first installment of the Dream Guardian Series. It is intended for young adult readers and was penned by S. E. Henry. In this interdimensional fantasy adventure novel, we meet protagonist twins Terryn and Trigg. The latter suffers from bizarre nightmares. When a link is discovered between the nightly visions in Trigg’s head and the possibility of another reality filled with deadly creatures, there begins a journey of discovery that will lead the twins to wondrous things but may also put their lives in danger.
S. E. Henry knows how to draw an audience in, and the fantasy imagination and descriptive quality of No Time to Cry will attract both young and adult readers from the very first moment. The blurred lines between reality and interdimensional travel create an exciting tension of not knowing where the next danger might come from, but the core narrative of the tale keeps us grounded with our central heroes. I enjoyed the emotional bond between Terryn and Trigg and I loved the evolution of their dialogue, which was similar in its own adorable “twin logic” way but also had those little touches that made each of them unique. Add to this a thrilling plot with lots of exciting and dangerous creatures, providing an adventure you don’t want to miss for one moment. This is a fascinating and action-packed novel that serves as a wonderful series-opener for curious minds, and also a great introduction to an expressive and exciting new author.
