To Be Read Tuesday

To Be Read Tuesday 

Featuring J.R. Johansson's second installment to the thrilling Night Walkers series. 

The book I can't wait to get my hands on this week is "Paranoia". 

When I finished the first book in this series a little over a month ago I immediately got online to see when the second one was going to be released. I was pleased and disappointed at the same time to see I had to wait 5 weeks in order to read it. 

"Insomnia" introduces you to Parker Chip who isn't your ordinary high school student. For the past four years Parker has been plagued with the dreams of others. Thrown into the subconsciousness of the last person he made eye contact with he is unable to fully sleep and he is afraid he won't last much longer. 

That is until he meets Mia. Mia's dreams are different then any others he has seen before and to his surprise and gratitude he is able to sleep for the first time in years. 

Parker quickly becomes addicted to Mia's dreams and can't stop himself from over stepping his boundaries to get his much need rest. 

It doesn't take long for Mia to notice his strange behavior and she warns Parker to stay away from her. Parker's life quickly starts to spiral out of control as he begins hurting the people close to him and himself as he tries to deal with having the semblance of a cure so close yet so unattainable. 

When someone starts harassing Mia, sending her anonymous death threats Parker is at the top of everyone's list of suspects. Even his own. 

"Paranoia" dives even deeper into Parker's condition. Parker learns he is a 'Watcher', and he is not the only one of his kind. 
There are other 'Night Walkers' out there that are threatening his very existence. The 'Takers'  will stop at nothing to kill the 'Watchers' and it seems the only one who may be able to stop them is Parker's father who abandoned him and his mother years ago.

While trying to cope with this new information he is still fearful of his alter ego 'Darkness' and the power he has over him. 

I'm sure I'll be reading "Paranoia" the same way I read "Insomnia", at the edge of my seat with all the lights on and the alarm set. 
For those of you that are in Salt Lake City J.R Johansson will be doing a book signing at Kings English Bookstore tonight (June 10th 2014) at 7pm. 
Hope to see you there. 

Until next time,
