Synopsis: What’s your worst nightmare?

For Ivy Jensen, it’s the eyes of a killer that haunt her nights. For Parker Bradley, it’s bloodthirsty sea serpents that slither in his dreams.

And for seven essay contestants, it’s their worst nightmares that win them an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at director Justin Blake’s latest, confidential project. Ivy doesn’t even like scary movies, but she’s ready to face her real-world fears. Parker’s sympathetic words and perfect smile help keep her spirits up. . . at least for now.

Not everyone is so charming, though. Horror-film fanatic Garth Vader wants to stir up trouble. It’s bad enough he has to stay in the middle of nowhere with this group—the girl who locks herself in her room; the know-it-all roommate; “Mister Sensitive”; and the one who’s too cheery for her own good. Someone has to make things interesting.

Except, things are already a little weird. The hostess is a serial-killer look-alike, the dream-stealing Nightmare Elf is lurking about, and the seventh member of the group is missing.

By the time Ivy and Parker realize what’s really at stake, it’s too late to wake up and run.



My Thoughts:  This was just okay. I was interested in the story the whole time I was reading, but it takes a lot to scare me or freak me out and this wasn’t at that “scare” level. I thought the characters were all pretty good and different. When the chapters switched you could tell that it was a different voice then the previous chapter. Seeing as how there were quite a few characters I was happy with that aspect. I am interested enough in the actual story to pick up the sequel and see how things end. The book wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be though.
