Synopsis:

SOMEONE ELSE WILL DIE SOON she tells herself.

SOMEONE ELSE WILL DIE AND I WILL BE RESPONSIBLE.

A few days after the first time you walk in your sleep, you kill someone. That's how the end begins.

Emma Montgomery has been having gruesome nightmares. Even worse, when she wakes up, she isn't where she was when she fell asleep. And she's not the only one. One by one the students of Saint Opportuna High start having nightmares, and sleepwalking. And the next morning one of their classmates turns up dead.

Something is making them kill in their sleep. Emma and her friends need to band together, to keep themselves awake until they can figure out what's behind the murders--before anyone else dies.

My rating: ★★★☆☆

I love horror novels, and I thought this one was a pretty okay one. In my opinion, however, it was not as frightening as I thought it would be.

But I also thought it had a pretty great storyline and mystery! Trying to figure out why their sleepwalking was leading to murder... I was seriously stumped! And finding out who was behind this whole thing... At first I had no idea no idea who was responsible for the sleepwalking, nightmares, and murders, but halfway into the book I figured it out... Unfortunately :( I like being surprised. The persons motivation, though, did catch me off guard! Crazy stuff, I tell ya.

I loved Jake! I thought he was a great character and just very sweet! There's one quality however, I absolutely did not like: he's a freakin' pot head! Let's just say I don't exactly approve of any kind of drug being used that is not required to maintain health. But that's just me.

All in all, I thought it was a pretty good horror/mystery with a very captivating book cover! I love it!

  1. I hadn't heard of this book before, but the whole murder while sleepwalking sounds quite interesting!

    1. It was very interesting, actually! The execution of it was what put me off from completely loving it :(
