Official Book Blurb: In the young adult teen series Dream Slayer, Natalie Johnson has always dreamed she’s someone else; calm, beautiful, in control. A chosen warrior with a maniacal arch nemesis and a dreamy boyfriend, the type that can make your knees melt and your heart quiver.
Real life is much different. She’s tormented by a bully and endures the sharp tongue of her father, but finds solace in her dreams.
When her bully ends up dead, de ja vu from a dream hits her hard as everything around her begins to fall apart. Whatever killed Sarah in her dreams is now in reality, hunting her from the shadows. And it wants her dead.
Somehow as the lines between reality and nightmare blur, Natalie must discover hidden strength to pull her friends and family back from the brink of madness.
In The Dream Slayer we meet Natalie Johnson, a young woman who dreams she is someone different, a person in control, beautiful and more. Reality is hard for Natalie as she deals with bullies and a critical father so escaping into her dreams is her reprieve. But even she didn't anticipate her dreams melding with reality and it is up to her to save her friends and family while trying to stay alive.
Ms. Cooper delivers a wonderful story that will thrill you to the tip of your toes. Lots of action, intriguing characters and more abound within the pages of The Dream Slayer. I couldn't put it down and frankly, it made me stay up till the wee hours of the evening just to see how it ends. The writing flows nicely, storyline dips and curves as it weaves its spell around you and the reader discovers alongside Natalie that the person she longs to be is within her, all she needs to do is believe in herself.
Ms. Cooper is a new to me author that I am eager to explore more of. The Dream Slayer delivers a different spin on those dreams and reality melding scenario that leaves you breathless. Witty dialogue, captivating characters and more are found within the pages of The Dream Slayer. This is truly one young adult series I am eager to read more of.
Teaser Excerpt from The Dream Slayer:
Tristan grabbed her arm. “Nat, what’s the matter?” he said, but his voice was drowned out by the throttled engine. Suddenly, the car was charging toward them. It swerved up onto the curb with Natalie in its sights.
There was no time to react. She was going to be hit and she braced for impact by squeezing her eyes shut.
Tristan’s yanked on her arm, and they tumbled across the street into a stack of empty cardboard boxes. Natalie crashed right into a brick wall and fought the bile rising in her throat. The world spun in crashing waves as her vision fluxed in and out. Her head throbbed from the impact, but her heart was still unable to comprehend what had happened.
Screeching tires heralded the car leaving scene. She rolled over onto her stomach and saw Tristan lying beside her. Natalie’s eyes followed the car speeding down the street with a stream of smoke coming out of its tailpipe.
“It… didn’t have a license plate,” Tristan said.
Natalie’s chin quivered, and she quelled it by biting her lip. She closed her eyes and rested her head on her arm. If she breathed or moved, Natalie would vomit.
Tristan touched her cheek and rested his forehead against hers. “Are you all right?”
“Yeah.” Her voice shook when she spoke. “Yeah, I’m good.”
“What a lunatic. Didn’t he see you?”
Natalie’s chin quivered. “He saw me.”
Tristan’s head snapped toward her. His eyes were wide, searching hers for an answer.
“He swerved towards me.” Natalie’s voice was low to keep the tears back. She thought if she spoke any louder, there would be an unstoppable rainstorm. “He wanted to hit me.”
