Excerpt

“Who wrote the laws saying that doorways must be sealed? Who told you to create another one of you?”

“The church.”

“Why?” He was silent. For once, he had no answer. He merely stared at me not blinking or unwavering as his eyes locked on mine. I thought I had him; nowhere in the Bible did it say to interfere with the dead or the other side. In fact, the Scripture scorned it. If I remembered correctly, that would border on witchcraft and necromancy, which was forbidden. So, if Wilson were the type to follow the Bible no matter what, then these questions just pushed his logic out the window. Even if the church said he had to do those things, who was to say they were right?

MY REVIEW

 

To Dream is to Die (Book #1)To Dream is to Die.v2

Eighteen-year-old Brenna Whit is entering college as a freshman and starting to meet new people, but she hides a dark secret. Because of an accident that happened three years ago, her spirit wanders the Fade whenever she falls asleep. It’s something she wants to keep hidden from the world, but when she sees someone watching her in spirit form, she fears the secret’s out. With new friends, possibly new enemies, school, and a new crush, Brenna has too much to worry about for just her freshman year of college.

Perfect for those who enjoy Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural!

Review:
THIS BOOK IS SO AWESOME!!!! I FEEL LIKE I WANT TO SCREAM TO EVERYBODY “READ THIS SERIES!!”

I really loved book one in the Dead Dreamer series, but book two is FREAKIN AMAZING!!!!! It flows perfectly from book one to book two. Except things have become much more complicated. Brenna has a lot more to deal with, and we see what a strong girl she really is!! There’s some freakin creepy stuff going on and it gets weirder & weirder. This is releasing in October, which is awesome because it’s a great book to read then!! Sarah has proven, once again, that she is a very talented writer!!

Be ready to question Brenna’s friends loyalty. Be prepared to be shocked, creeped out and wonder ‘can Brenna only trust and rely on herself’? If you fell in love with the characters in book one, just wait until you read this book!!! Sarah’s talent in writing this book shows through in the plot that flows beautifully to make up one he!! of a story! Her dialogue gets you so involved in the characters, i would really LOVE to hear this on audiobook!! The world building is done so well that the spooky places really come alive in the mind’s eye!!!!! I can’t say enough about this book, except that I FREAKIN LOVED IT and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IT!!!

AND CHECK OUT THAT BEAUTIFUL COVER! 😍

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Sarah Lampkin is a 2015 graduate from Lynchburg College [University of Lynchburg] with a master’s degree in English. Since graduation, Sarah now lives in Northern Virginia working in the IT field as a Technical Writer while continuing her research for her graduate school thesis. When she isn’t working, Sarah continues her Celtic mythology research and Gaelic studies, while working on the Dead Dreamer series.

Although she currently lives in Northern Virginia, Sarah frequently travels back home to Richmond to visit family, friends, and her godchildren. During the winter months, she is in Richmond more frequently to spend time in the woods hunting and contemplating the meaning of life. She doesn’t always succeed in both endeavors, but the music of nature is worth it for peace of mind. In her free time, she likes to play RPG video games, and preparing for hunting season.

Her work mainly focuses on Celtic themes, mixed with elements from the spiritual world. And her characters always have a flair of attitude and sarcasm because writing damsels in distress is something she just can’t do.

She currently writes for The Parliament House and is seeking a literary agent.
