What worked: This is a satisfying conclusion to the Dreamfall series. In this second book, six teens are trapped in an experimental treatment to cure insomnia that has gone terribly bad. Seems that if you die in the dreamworld, you really die. Two of the teens have already died. The rest try to find a way out of the nightmare. They have found if they work together, they might be able to survive. There's a rumor that one of the teens is a psychopath. How far will that person go to keep that secret?

This book is even better than the first book in the series! Each nightmare is from someone in the group. Only all of the teens not only witness that nightmare, but live through it. Let's just say I will never look at those dolls at the Disney It's A Small World exhibit in the same way again.

Each teen holds a secret. In the experiment, they find they have some kind of psychic link. When they work together they are able to survive a deadly situation. And there are more than a few grisly nightmares these teens have to face! There's also a mystery on unsolved murders that someone in the group knows about. I didn't guess who until the very end! I also liked how each of the teens faces their fears at the end for a very satisfying climax.

Nightmare on Elm Street meets Flatliners, this novel has just the right amount of horror that isn't over the top.
Good Points
1. Exciting conclusion to Dreamfall series
2. Nightmare on Elm Street meets Flatliners
