Eighteen-year-old Alice has spent the last year of her life in a hospital bed, held hostage by pain from a freak accident. Doctors can neither explain nor cure her condition, and her medical insurance is about to run out. Then, she’s offered one last chance—inclusion in a study for a revolutionary new pain medication

Miraculously, the medication works. There’s only one side effect—vivid, terrifying nightmares, of imprisonment in a pitch-black cell, with no memory of her identity or how she got there. At least, she thinks that’s all they are, until someone from her dreams shows up in real life.

When other sinister happenings cross the boundary between dreaming and waking, Alice must choose: return to a half-life of isolation and agony, or confront the malevolent force behind the dreams, before she and those she cares about are trapped in their nightmares forever. But by the time she makes her choice—it may already be too late.

Publication Date: August 20, 2013

About the author:

Before Jacquelyn Sylvan became a writer, she worked as a waitress, video store clerk, trail-riding guide, and veterinary technician, among other things. She’s a few inches shy of five feet tall, which means she’s sometimes mistaken for a child when she rides her bike, and often looked at suspiciously by amusement park ride operators. When she’s not writing, you’ll probably find her watching Vampire Diaries or trying to warn people about the impending penguin apocalypse. Jacquelyn lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two cats, and two very large dogs. Her YA novel, Blind Study, a supernatural thriller, comes out August 20, 2013.

So, what do you think?  I love starbursts.  You can't go wrong with starbursts on a cover, as far as I'm concerned. =) And I love the idea of waking dreams -- er, nightmares -- and I can't wait to read this one. Gotta catch up on some review books first, but then I am all over this!

Thanks for stopping by & happy reading!


  1. Thank you so much Jen. I <3 you. And it's been a while since I've been obscene on your blog.. I feel totally comfortable doing that on your post.

    Penis! butthole! vag! pinksock!

    Don't google that last one, you might get images that will traumatize you for life. lol

  2. That is a very pretty cover! I love the stars. :)

  3. That is a pretty cover! I like the starbursts, too.

    April is crazy!

  4. I dreamed that everyone in my life died :(

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Falling dreams are always scary

  6. Thanks for the giveaway!
    anyways. I once dreamed that my family abandoned me. my parents willingly gave me to a monster, a really scary monster, and they don't even care. I woke up crying. haha

  7. When I was a teenager I had to watch my little sister and I had a dream where she was taken away by a crocodile wearing a topcoat.

  8. I really need to read this! Actually when I was in the hospital at 17 after my own horrible accident, I had the weirdest dreams ever - they involved magical mice cities..yeah.

  9. I'm pretty sure I would be locked up in a padded cell if anyone could actually see my dreams. They are super messed up and scare the hell out of me! They'd make some good movies, though.

  10. I know there were a lot of them but I usually forget my dreams almost instantly when I wake up. I know I had one where bugs were crawling on me everywhere.
