Review: Insomnia

Insomnia (The Night Walkers, #1)
J. R. Johasson
Flux Publishing
It’s been four years since I slept, and I suspect it is killing me.

Instead of sleeping, Parker Chipp enters the dream of the last person he’s had eye contact with. He spends his nights crushed by other people’s fear and pain, by their disturbing secrets—and Parker can never have dreams of his own. The severe exhaustion is crippling him. If nothing changes, Parker could soon be facing psychosis and even death.

Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. Parker starts going to bizarre lengths to catch Mia’s eye every day. Everyone at school thinks he’s gone over the edge, even his best friend. And when Mia is threatened by a true stalker, everyone thinks it’s Parker.

Suffering blackouts, Parker begins to wonder if he is turning into someone dangerous. What if the monster stalking Mia is him after all?
My Review:  I must admit as someone who suffers from insomnia the first line of the description intrigued me. This book was a reason to stay awake. I was completely lost in this story. Compelling and gripping. To think the only person that could help you was so scared of you that the mere sight sent you screaming. I also like Parker because he was written with honesty. He is a teenager who has no idea what is going on. The fear and confusion he expresses is what you would expect. He does not have it all figured out and that keep the reader on edge. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
