Being a ParaScience freshman is a nightmare come true
Asher loved her and hated her,
risked his life to protect her and planned to rip her apart.
The moment Hailey stumbled into Asher's world,
he was corrupted by emotion.
And she had no idea the danger she aroused.
Hailey’s dreams have always been, well...vivid. As in monsters from her nightmares follow her into her waking life vivid. When her big sister goes missing, eighteen-year-old Hailey finds the only thing keeping her safe from a murderous 3,000-year old beast is an equally terrifying creature who’s fallen “madly” in love with her. Competing to win her affection, the Dream Creature, Asher, lures her to the one place that offers safety—a ParaScience university in Alaska he calls home. There, she must learn to live with a roommate from Hell, survive her ParaScience classes, and hope the only creature who can save her from an evil immortal doesn’t decide to kill her himself.
Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
Eerie is one wild ride! Here are my top 5 reasons you should read it-- now!
1. Wonderful, complex characters-- lots of them. I loved the characters in this story. I prefer character-driven works-- when the characters seem so real, they almost feel like friends by the end of the book. Main and secondary characters in this novel are complex and interesting on so many levels.
2. Beautifully written prose. Being an editor, I tend to notice prose perhaps a bit closer or deeper than some readers. The way the sentences flowed, the word choices-- it all wove together into a beautiful overall voice that I admired.
3. Immersive fantasy world. There's nothing better than being transported into a new world that seems so real, there's just no room for disbelief. I fell into this world and everything seemed possible.
4. Fast pacing. I like my stories to move, and this one definitely did that. The pacing was even and constantly building which made it very difficult to put down.
5. Read in one sitting. I had no desire to put down this book. I ignored a couple phone calls which I now need to return.
About the Author
C.M. McCoy is an Irish dancer and former Air Force officer living in the Great White North. Though B.S.'d in Chemical Engineering and German, she’s far happier writing stories involving Alaska and a body bag (with an awkward kiss in the mix.)
