from Amazon:
Seven teenagers who suffer from debilitating insomnia agree to take part in an experimental new procedure to cure it because they think it can’t get any worse. But they couldn’t be more wrong.

When the lab equipment malfunctions, the patients are plunged into a terrifying dreamworld where their worst nightmares have come to life—and they have no memory of how they got there. Hunted by monsters from their darkest imaginations and tormented by secrets they’d rather keep buried, these seven strangers will be forced to band together to face their biggest fears. And if they can’t find a way to defeat their dreams, they will never wake up.

A group of teens with insomnia undergo a new procedure for treatment. During the treatment, something goes wrong, and the teens are trapped in a dream world.

Told from multiple points of view – Cata, Fergus, and Jaime. Cata and Fergus suffer from insomnia and are undergoing treatment. Jaime is a pre-med student observing the treatment. The different POVs were interesting, especially since it covers viewpoints from both sides – those undergoing the treatment and an observer of the test subjects.

The dream worlds the teens go through are nightmares. Each teen suffers from severe insomnia, and they all have nightmares. While trapped in the dream world, the teens go from one nightmare to another, never knowing what they will encounter and if they will be able to escape.

A fast-paced and entertaining sci-fi thriller. Exciting, creepy, and mysterious. It does end on a cliffhanger, and I look forward to reading the next one in the series, Neverwake.

I won a Kindle version of this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.

    1. It was! I didn’t realize this was a horror novel until after I started reading it. Clearly, I wasn’t paying attention. It worked out though! 😊

    1. True. I ended up enjoying this one a lot more than I thought I would. Then again, I’ve been in the mood for more YA in my reading schedule lately.
