“To cure fear, you must use fear.”
Rose Briar claims no responsibility for the act that led to her imprisonment in an asylum. She wants to escape, until terrifying nightmares make her question her sanity and reach out to her doctor. He’s understanding and caring in ways her parents never have been, but as her walls tumble down and Rose admits fault, a fellow patient warns her to stop the medications. Phillip believes the doctor is evil and they’ll never make it out of the facility alive. Trusting him might be just the thing to save her. Or it might prove the asylum is exactly where she needs to be.
Oh. My. Goodness.
Asleep is the best book I’ve read so far this year.
Need I say more?
Ok, ok. I will elaborate.
This is a story about a girl by the name of Rose and how she wound up in the wrong place at the worst possible time. Darn friends of hers. With their help she lands herself in the local loony bin, with her parents being the ones to walk her through the front door. Well, after a little escape attempt by Rose, which was not only intense, but wildly entertaining.
This book is full of awesome character development, mystery, thrills, chills, and even a little bit of romance – although not the kind you’d find in a Colleen Hoover novel. I don’t know anyone that could pick this book up and have an easy time putting it down.
Asleep is a riveting tale that will keep any reader glued to their seat and flipping pages furiously. Try as I might, I was never able to get ahead of the story to figure things out. I had no idea what was going to happen next and it drove me crazy… in the best possible way.
Asleep has found a spot at the top of my favorite books list, and Krystal Wade will have to avoid my author-stalking abilities until the end of time. I highly recommend this book to all people who love to read books, regardless of genre preferences.
~About the Author~
I’m happily married to the love of my life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. We live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day I wake up to find myself stuck in traffic trying to get there.
The horrid commute gives me plenty of time to zone out and think about my characters in full, brilliant details (I’m a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give me a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to me on the fifty mile trek into town (I pick up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe me).
I’ve been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of my oh-so-large life. When I’m not working, commuting, or chasing after my three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find me outside talking to my chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training my amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?).
I hope you love my stories (or just like them a little; that would be okay, too). And I hope that one day you find your passion, because there’s nothing in life better than doing what you love while surrounded by people you love.
