Bad Dreams

Mystery / Thriller

Blurb

A young woman finds her way to the hospital where she slips into a deep coma. She does not respond to any treatments. No one seems to be looking for her; no family is visiting her and her identity remains unknown to everyone, including the police appointed to her case. After a series of unexplainable events surrounding her presence, an avant-garde doctor decides to contact a local specialist of supernatural phenomenal, named Harry. As Harry is trying to figure out what is really going on, he finds a very terrifying truth: that this girl is being used as a gateway to our world by an Evil unlike anything ever known by the human race. He has one chance to fight the Unknown and makes a very dangerous decision, to enter the world of the nightmare.

Prologue

She has always been fearing the dreams she had; for as long as she could remember. Sleeping, dreaming, and walking. She had no control over it. Only, while not sleeping, she knew how to take a little more control of the situations around her. But even then she still felt pity and fear and shame and guilt. And she couldn’t say why. In sleep, she was too insecure and never trusted her own instincts, listened to all the wrong voices making rounds in her head, pitting herself into one fiasco after another and shaming herself for each failure.

Sleep became slight as she tried more and more to put handle on her every day living a constant nightmare… like a blanket she had wrapped it around her and the only time she felt free was in the moments she could loosen her grip on her soul and fly free. One with herself and soaring into her own body and delving into her obsession until she was spent.

It lasted… until, in the end, she knew there was no place to run. She felt too sick to think everything through and re-analyze it… her body was fluid to her… no more but awkward and unsure…

She felt unworthy of love and mistrusted signs of affection. She constantly grabbed for fantasy as it slipped farther and farther away with her feet solid in a miserable reality and insanity threatening to ooze in among the cracks…

Trying to reach out for help, she went to see a doctor once. He did not seem to pay too much attention to what she was trying to explain; instead, he gave her a prescription for slipping pills, thinking she was sleep deprived. Of course she was, as she was too afraid to fall asleep. She left his office, deciding to deal with it on her own. But now, just a few weeks later, she was so exhausted, with no one to help her, she went and bought the pills he prescribed. She was at the end of the road, wherever it was supposed to take her, and she decided to end it here and now. she shook the pills out of the bottle on the palm of her hand and starred at them for a while. She was an orphan, had no family, no friends, no boyfriend. Who would want to be involved in any way with a weirdo she was anyway? Not giving too many thoughts to it, she decided to take the pills. She swallowed all; drinking some water, and lied down thinking, she just escaped the bad dreams. What she did not know was what she did was just the beginning of the worst nightmare yet.

warehalleyr: I usually have a difficult time staying interested in books long enough to actually finish them. This story however, had me so caught up that I'd only stop to sleep at 3am when my body would no longer allow me to keep my eyes open. What I loved about this was that I could actually imagine the rea...

Keith R. Pharis Jr.: Thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I was drawn in and stayed intrigued throughout the entire story. It was full of drama and emotion. Very well written. It left me wanting more. I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone. It will certainly leave you wanting more and more. Excellent job.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION
