Exacting Essence (The Immortal Nightmare Cycle #1)

21844359

Remember waking up late in the night after a nightmare? Your mother holding you tight and whispering everything would be all right? She lied.

Evil clowns haunted Megan’s dreams for years. Even though nobody ever said she was crazy, she knew they were all thinking it. With her life falling apart, she turns suicidal until a new therapist suggests the impossible: dreams are real. Nightmares are living, breathing predators, feeding off dreamer’s fears by exacting essence.

Most, of course, forget theirs as soon as they wake up. Megan is not so lucky. She is also not so powerless.

But is even a power nurtured in her dreams enough to fight off the horrors lurking just beyond the veil of sleep?

My Review:

Another great one from James. I was pulled into the story immediately. It takes the reader to the world of dreams. We are drawn into not just Megan’s nightmares but several other characters’ dreams as well. The reader goes along with Megan as she fights to gain control and end her nightmares once and for all only to find out that it might not possible for that to happen. She will learn things about herself and why the nightmares are happening. It has some great twists and turns. There are some very unique characters as well.  Readers who love books that are creepy will enjoy this one.  I suggest adding it to your TBR list. I look forward to reading the next one

Salvation by James Wymore Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Salvation

22049165

A man wakes on a frozen battlefield when a scavenging couple finds him among the dead. As they nurse him back to health, he is struck with the horrible realization he can’t remember who he is or anything about his past. Taken in by the kind pair, he begins helping with their farm. She even takes him to meet her family, especially her single sister. The ideal life offered in the high mountains of Winigh is shattered when he sees a transport bringing enemy monsters to the shores below. Cut off by high snow on the pass, their fate will soon be the same as the town his company failed to protect in the last battle, if this estranged soldier cannot help them fight off the next wave of invaders. Even worse, the people of the town don’t trust this Selene soldier. He has a strange resistance to their folk magic which some say make him as dangerous as the enemies preparing to destroy them.

 My Review:

I couldn’t put it down. The characters and the world James has created is great. Elwood is faced with a situation that no one would ever want to have. He doesn’t remember who he is or where he’s from. He has to fight to save himself and the  place he’s become a member of.  The people around him don’t really trust him. The story sucks the reader in from the first page. I would highly recommend it to those who love to read fantasy. I look forward to reading more of James’s books.
