The Nightmare Within by Glen R. Krisch
With some help, he opens up a business, Lucidity. There, he bottles the nightmares and dreams in glass enclosures. It is surreal to see. In some of the glass enclosed rooms, there are coma patients. One of his main investors is Nolan Gage. He has a big interest in Maury's project as one of his comatose patients is his daughter Nicole. Nolan prays for the day that Maury can pull a dream from Nicole and he has a small hope she will awaken.
But something strange is going on at Lucidity. Maury has new inclinations to breed the nightmares, much to Nolan's dismay. And the dreams and nightmares are supposed to last maybe thirty minutes and then repeat themselves. However, with Juliet, that is not the case and she begins to have a mind of her own. Is she the only one? What is happening and what will happen if our nightmares become a reality?
The Nightmare Within is a spooky suspenseful novel in a surreal environment. Eccentric and yet likable characters, a unique plot concept, compelling situations and remarkable writing set the tone for this page-turning and chilling novel. I really enjoyed all of the characters and their situations and was up late burning the midnight oil because I couldn't put it down.
