If you die in a dream, you die in real life - that used to be a myth!
Howell Warren hasn't seen another human face for over five years. If he did, that person could die at any time. This is the world of the "Sleeping Sickness".
As the world recovers from a devastating solar flare, society is just getting back on track when a strange phenomena begins. Violent dreams are coming true all over the world. Those featured in the dreams are killed in real life, showing terrible injuries like those in the dreams. No one is safe because no one can control their dreams.
The more worried people become, the more likely they are to have bad thoughts at night. It's only a matter of time before you kill someone. At least that was how it was until everyone started wearing masks and disguises, and people began to forget the faces of everyone they ever knew.
In this new world, the reemerging internet is filled with rumor and fear. Howell Warren hates living behind a mask. His new love, Catherine - many cities away - feels the same. Their one hope of a 'normal' life is to travel over dangerous, still mostly lawless terrain to make it to the city of Asitwas, a place where everyone lives as before and the only time people wear masks is at Halloween.
Can they manage to meet and cross hostile terrain to make their dreams come true. Or will the lawless world or the Sleeping Sickness get to them first?
If you liked A Quiet Place, The Silence, or Birdbox you'll love this speculative horror from E. P Douglas.
