Why do I have it? I like horror and have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
When college freshman Amanda Greene wakes up in her dorm room, she is woozy and slightly disoriented. She assumes that her grogginess is due to her excursion to the local college hangout the previous night. After having a vicious argument with her boyfriend, Amanda remembers going out with her two best friends to have some fun and forget her problems. The night that followed must have included some pretty heavy partying, because Amanda can hardly remember how she got back to the dorm.
As a matter of fact, Amanda is starting to suspect that something is wrong. She can’t quite put her finger on what it is, but things are just not the same as they were yesterday. When Amanda eventually starts classes, she discovers that the courses that she is registered for are ones she would never have chosen. Her classmates and teachers all seem oddly familiar to her, but Amanda can’t quite place any of their names or faces.
Disturbing memories are beginning to surface in her mind, and an ominous shadow is stalking her. Something is definitely wrong – Amanda can sense it – but she’s not sure what. All she knows for certain is that there will soon be an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this really the worst hangover ever, or is there something more serious happening?
This is actually the sixth book by Mr. Cash that I’ve read, and I must say that I enjoyed this one as much as the others that I’ve read. The premise was intriguing to me, and I avidly wanted to see how this story would develop. I give this book a B+! – I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
B+! – (85-89%)
