Review Copy Source:

Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.


In the midst of Kaylee trying to work threw her anger and pain to forgive Nash, Sabine his ex-girlfriend shows up at school. Of course this throws Kaylee into a tailspin because Sabine tells Kaylee flat out that she is after Nash and Kaylee still doesn't forgive him but doesn't want to lose him either. On top of all that stress teachers start dying and the students start acting crazy jealous towards each other breaking into fights and chaos. Kaylee seems to grow a bit of a backbone through out the book which is nice. Nash is still broken and is trying to win Kaylee back and keep Sabine as his friend at the same time. Tod is very protective and supportive to Kaylee the book and it was nice to see their friendship grow. Sabine's character brings a ton of tension and chaos to the book but in the end I think you will all be surprised to find out why and that she isn't as bad as she seems. Avari Is still after Kaylee and I'm sure that wont stop anytime soon but it getting pretty interesting. I cant imagine where Rachel will take the series next but I'm staying on for the ride.

I gave it 4/5 Stars
