Synopsis

Ex-CIA agent Drew Corrigan never imagined that after leaving a life of fighting crime he would enter a life of killing…in his dreams. Each night Drew faces playing a game of ‘kill or be killed’, all while sleeping. Given only a gun and a watch that counts down his lives, he has no choice but to go against his better judgment and kill in order to save himself. Every night he plays he loses a life, if he is killed another life will be lost, but if he kills he earns a life. Drew must avoid reaching zero lives or he will die in real life. If he makes it to 100 lives he will win…but what is the prize? As he plays this dangerous game, he realizes that the people he meets in the game are just as real as he is in the waking world. Can he figure out how to stop this game from taking more lives including his own? Dreaming has never been more dangerous.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***

Magus Tor, who gives credit as co-author to Carrie Lynn Weniger, has written a tale that will keep you interested to the end. The bare bones of the story are in the synopsis and you will quickly (before the hero and heroine do so in the story) work out why there are some nights when they do not dream.
I was very pleased to find that any information Drew gets is shared with you, the reader, and if you pay attention to details you will be ahead of him most of the time.
It is an excellent piece of writing and my reason for only four stars (I give five if there is nothing I can see to improve) is the number of editorial failures (which frankly most people other than writers will not even notice,) for example if they wished to refer to having only four examples of something the authors would say 4 instead of four; it breaks the rhythm of reading.
The romance between the main characters develops at a believable speed and you will identify with them as they slowly find answers to the questions, ‘Who?’ ‘How?’ and ‘Why?’ Although it stretches credibility to believe the CIA would work as in the book, I would like to think it would, and that Drew and Max solve more cases for us to read about.
