It was happening again. The dreams. The nightmares. It was something seventeen year-old Elizabeth "Lizzy" Hayes thought she'd outgrown; dreams that would come true; detailed premonitions of how people would die. This time she dreams about her boyfriend, Michael Young, and soon discovers that he's been found... dead. Michael hasn't crossed over because he was murdered, and now his murderer is coming for Lizzy. His spirit won't rest until she is safe, and as a newbie spirit, the easiest way for him to make contact is through Lizzy's dreams. When she dreams, it's as if he hasn't died. Lizzy must learn to pull on her inner strength to survive horrifying events. Meanwhile, in the spirit world, Michael learns everything he can about his supernatural gift to help. But will it be enough to save her?


From the very first pages I found myself totally involved with the story and the main characters. I have to say that there was a particular scene that reminded me of the movie "Ghost"... But it was just a scene and the story here is completely different. Michael and Lizzy are great, it's impossible not to see how their love is deep and how they're connected with each other. When Michael is in her dreams there are lovely moments and sad ones but what I liked most of these times together was watching the two of them to behave like a pretty couple that makes jokes, has so much fun and knows perfectly each other! They'll always be in love and bound despite the tragic event that keeps them apart...

The whole situation is tormenting and for the reader is like to be a real witness. Sometimes the atmosphere is scary, sometimes is touching and there's a mix of emotions that flows through you while reading the book that doesn't let you put it down. I love the way the author wrote her story a lot, everything is so fluent and I found particularly well chosen the slang she used just for the bad guy, it gives him the right tone of voice tipically of a tough guy. It's all very well written!

Thanks to Cameo Renae for sending me the book with a lovely dedication, I'm looking forward to read your next book!

RATING: 3.5/5
