“A well-thought out and imaginative novel.” – Indies Today
The blood wasn’t real. Her heart hammered in her chest. The blood wasn’t real. She could feel the terror coursing through her veins. The blood wasn’t real. But what if it was hers?
Ever since the nightmares started, Josephine “Josie” Benson’s life had started spiraling out of control. At night, she couldn’t sleep, and during the day she finds it increasingly more difficult to cling to reality. Nothing in her twenty-five years of life had prepared her for this moment, and, somehow, no matter who she turned to no one had any concrete answers. No one except for the mysterious stranger.
He swears he knows the answers to all of her questions, but how can Josie trust him when he only calls her Celine, a name she has no memory of or connection to.
Can this stranger who looks at her like she has secrets really be trusted? Does he know the reason for her nightmares? Or could he somehow be behind them?
Grayson Buckley can see the physical toll the nightmares are taking on her and it breaks his heart. He desperately wants to help her, to free her mind and awaken her, but he knows it isn’t time yet. He can’t rush this. One day she will awaken, and when she does all will be made known.
When one accident finally reveals the answers she’s been dying for, Josie finds that her life will never be the same. Will Josie be able to accept the truth of her past and the power that dwells within her? Or will she succumb to the evil that now manifests itself in the world around her?
