Description

Timothy July has a secret. And it's giving him nightmares.
Abigail Tremens has a problem. Her nightmares are haunting her . . . while she is awake.

When they team up for a school project, they don't realize that Abigail's past and Timothy's present are making them the target of a terrible curse. A curse that turns their worst fears to reality.

But their fears are just the beginning. The curse stems from a strange artifact that gains strength by devouring a human soul. And it needs to feed again.

Dan Poblocki has honed his storytelling skills, as every page is filled with chills and thrills in this, his fast-paced second novel. The Nightmarys will have his readers mesmerized until the last page . . . and then sleeping with the lights on.
