Synopsis (Goodreads):
The last battle will be a nightmare…

The Sandman has broken through to the waking world, bringing with Him a monster of a storm. Mirren Lambert and Vince Blackman set out to force him back into his own realm, while Malcolm Rook and Jordan Lane are cornered by an old enemy intent on revenge. They learn that there are no rules when fighting for the ones you love.

In the midst of the chaos, Harlen Fawkes is charged with finding a way to make dreaming safe again. As nightmares lurk in the fringes, waiting to attack, he is driven to a bold decision that will change the world Darkside forever. All the while, his heart is with Sera—will the love of his life ever wake again?

Steve Coll must come to grips with his altered nature. His passion for Maisie Lane transcends the darkness, and he becomes both a fearsome nightmare and the hero humanity so desperately needs. Armed with hope and love, he strikes out to defeat a powerful god. But will it be enough? Or has dreaming just become too dangerous?

Scrape is the eighth and final installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well. And behind them all is a shadowy entity called the Sandman.

Revel with me.
Thoughts on Scrape: I am RIDICULOUSLY in love with this series. Something about it worked for me on many levels. The characters, the couples, the crazy they had to deal with. I'm terribly sad to see it end, but at the same time we got such an outstanding ending I'm... happy with it. I'm very conflicted about this. I didn't want it to end, but I'm happy it did.

The last book almost killed me with its ending. This one picks up straightaway and things are NOT looking good for our heroes. Steve's fate seemed the most tenuous, but they're all trapped in situations that threaten both their lives and their sanity.

With nightmares infiltrating both the safe dreamscapes and the waking world, things look bad. BAD BAD BAD. Weirdly, I loved how things didn't end up easy for our heroes. From Steve's transformation to Rook's issues to... okay, I feel like I'm going to give something away. Instead, I'll say I liked that things weren't perfect once they'd gotten past their main hurdle.

Saving the day doesn't fix everything and each of these characters had to make sacrifices in one way or another.
