Hailey’s dreams have always been, well...vivid. As in monsters from her nightmares follow her into her waking life vivid.
When her big sister goes missing, eighteen-year-old Hailey finds the only thing keeping her safe from a murderous 3,000-year old beast is an equally terrifying creature who has fallen “madly” in love with her. Competing to win her affection, the Dream Creature, Asher, lures her to the one place that offers safety—a ParaScience university in Alaska he calls home. There, she studies the science of the supernatural and must learn to live with a roommate from Hell, survive her ParaScience classes, and hope the only creature who can save her from an evil immortal doesn’t decide to kill her himself.
A teenager gets caught in a dangerous supernatural conflict in McCoy's promising but overstuffed paranormal romance. Hailey Hartley's dreams about a mysterious boy become much more vivid after her older sister is murdered. Soon after, Hailey meets him in the flesh: he's an "Envoy" named Asher, responsible for ferrying life energy released when someone dies across dimensional planes. The Envoys have become trapped on Earth, Hailey could be the key to freeing them, and her life is in danger as a result. But first she's off to Bear Towne University in remote Alaska to study "ParaScience," though she isn't necessarily safe there, given such hazards as invisible interdimensional portals and carnivorous splinters from man-eating trees. McCoy has fun fleshing out the details of Hailey's life at Bear Towne, though it isn't entirely clear how the many supernatural aspects of the novel fit together. Characters don't always react in believable ways (at one point Hailey accepts a dinner invitation with the Envoy who killed her sister without argument), though readers who invest in Hailey's story may be intrigued by a cliffhanger ending that sets up a sequel. Ages 14 up. (BookLife)

Eerie is such a great story and i really enjoyed reading it. Just reading the back cover alone had me wanting to get my hands on it as soon as i could. i really cant wait to read what CM comes up with next
I received Eerie through Boundless Book Reviews in exchange for an honest review. I L.O.V.E. anything paranormal and Sci-fi, so I was the lucky one of us 5 girls offered the book! And I do mean LUCKY! This is a huge 5 Boundless stars book!
It took me a few chapters to figure it out, but once I did, I was completely in the story. I felt so many emotions with Hailey and I was so intrigued, I could not put it down! If you like any of the genres I mentioned, or just reading a great book, I highly recommend Eerie!...Beth
