There are real monsters out there. The worst part is that they’re human.

"Nathan Miller."
"What happened?"
"I was shot."
"Her name?"
"Caitlin Lockyer."
"What happened to her?"
"Looks like someone tried to kill her."

Nathan found a girl lying on a beach covered in blood. Saving her life was just the start. Now he’s the prime suspect and he has to find out who’s really responsible. Both of their lives depend on it.

Who hurt her?
Why was he shot?
What did he promise?
Why doesn’t his story add up?
Who was the dead man on the beach?
What will she remember when she wakes up?

My Thoughts:

I got this book from the author in exchange of a review, all the thoughts here are mine...

The book is just AMAZING. No other words can describe it. It is really a good work of fiction. Nothing paranormal, just one life of a girl and a boy.

We all have nightmares. We're always afraid of a monster coming for us in them. But what if our nightmares are true, and the monsters in them are people? What then? The story tells us about 17 year old Caitlin Lockyer who was tortured and then left to die on the beach, only to be rescued by a young man - Nathan, and to be haunted by nightmares of that events. The book is full of mystery and is thrilling from the first page to the last one. While the protagonist and the main story teller is Nathan, every chapter, which is only 1 page long and is told in Caitlin's voice is what makes the book amazing. The style of describing the nightmare is amazing, and horrifying both. So vivid, that I really thought better of reading the book at night. Sometimes Nathan's words didn't make sense, but when you read them again and when you will read Caitlin's memories, then you will understand them, and you will definitely be craving the second book. Which I think will be much more intriguing and much more thrillingly amazing.

The only hint that I will give you is this: our actions always trigger something, it's physics. But we need to remember, that sometimes by our closing eyes on the problems, our loved ones can suffer and not only them. Think about something twice before doing it, especially when it concerns your loved ones. I hope you wil be as thrilled by the books as I am. It truly is an amazing book, and I am looking forward laying hands on the "Nessesary Evil" the second book of Nightmares' trilogy. Grab your copy now, so that you won't have to wait for yours as I am. Happy Reading, and enjoy it. Don't forget to leave comments and never ever sit in the stranger's car!!! Enjoy the book :))
