Eighteen-year-old Brie O’Mara has so much going for her: a loving family in the sidelines, an heiress for a roommate, and dreams that might just come true. Big dreams–of going to acting school, finishing college and making a name for herself. She is about to be the envy of everyone she knew. What more could she hope for? Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality.
Dead Dreams, Book 1, is a young adult psychological thriller and mystery.
Dead Dreams is a fast paced and thrilling first novel in what promises to be an exciting YA mystery series. We meet the main character, Brie, at the beginning of the book after everything has gone terribly wrong. The main story is Brie recounting what led up to and eventually happened that got her in the predicament she was in. Brie was a great main character - strong, kind, full of hope and ambition, determined, loving. And yet, she had flaws along with her strengths, which made her all the more realistic to me and easier to identify with right from the start of the book. The plot of the novel is a gripping mix of psychological thriller and mystery with tons of twists and turns that kept my head spinning. I'm a huge fan of the genre and I always love to try and figure out what's really happening or who's behind it all before the characters do. This book left me confused, puzzled, and astonished by the end - which I consider a mark of exceptional mystery writing. The book was fast paced and flowed so smoothly that I flew through the pages. The author made everything in the book accessible to the reader, so it seemed like I was immersed in Brie's world right from the beginning. There's a lot of interesting story lines and tidbits throughout the story that added a unique edge to the book and sets it apart from most others in the genre. After reading this book in one sitting because I couldn't put it down, I'm definitely going to be reading the next book in the series. Very highly recommended for fans of YA mystery and thrillers!
