  • The definition of 'nightmare' . . .

    It’s bad enough to have your own nightmares, but Kuma Darzi is in stasis and is experiencing his mother’s nightmare, oily vines wrapped around her tightly with thorns piercing her! It’s something she can’t get out of since she can’t “wake up” in stasis. But the nightmare is strong enough that her fear lashed out to Kuma. His mom is a telepath, and Kuma is an empath, so he is receiving her nightmare. Her screams go through his eardrums and, of course, he can’t cover his ears to stop it. But he is pushed away from her nightmare and Onah, not a human but a white presence around a boiling darkness, forces him to see the others who can dream are sick with the oily vines around them. And Onah tells him he must wake up! His pod opens and he can’t breathe! An AI avatar appears and coaches him on how to take a breath, telling him the stasis gel fills his lungs and will dissolve soon. When he is breathing better, Kuma asks Citiali, the ship’s AI, to wake his mom. The AI says she cannot. Kuma tries to open her pod manually with the Revive button – but it doesn’t respond! He can feel his mom still in the clutches of the nightmare, but he cannot revive her. He goes to his dad’s pod, but when he pulls up the data, there are no heart or brain readings – he’s dead, and yet Kuma can still feel him, though the AI says he died two weeks before! And she insists all systems are functional! Kuma goes to his twin sister’s pod but cannot see inside. He bangs on the pod’s surface and a flake of “fug” falls off. Although he gets readings of her vital signs, he cannot connect with her brain – they are twins, both empaths, and he should easily enter her thoughts. But there is nothing there! He sees the fug is thick in her pod and asks the AI about it – but the AI cannot see any fug, she says! Something is definitely wrong with the AI, and it’s something he can’t fix! Kuma notices the absolute quiet now. Apparently he is the only living human on the ship heading toward another solar system. There are some critters that keep the ship clean, but he senses no one else. Then he senses a rucnart, p’Endr, and in a terrible mental battle right as she dies, she gives him a memory that shows him what happened and that the fug is somehow aware and is consuming everything. Can one boy fight such a terrible thing? Wow, this one will give you nightmares of your own! The author seems to know every terror someone might face and then puts it into this story! Unfortunately, she does this so well that the reader will feel everything, all the pain, the terror, the struggling. If you dare, grab your copy and see how it all started and if there is a way to defeat it. If not, this nightmare may not end, and I'm not sure I want to face Book 2!
