It begins with a ride on a train.
But where it ends is on a precipice of horror - dangling on the border between life and death.

Not the only one who has nightmares.
And now, as Death stalks the carriages, it's a moment when nightmares become real.
Nightmares of wars, and a world devastated by chemical weapons. Of a body being slowly stolen, bit by bit. Of monstrous actions and monstrous creatures from old myths. Of jealousy, obsession and a stalker outside your window. Nightmares of everything imaginable.
What will it take for Kyle to finally face his greatest fear?
Pacy, compelling and seriously creepy, don't read this chilling novel late at night!
