Coma Dreams by N. Lawrence Mann
Thank you JKS for the advanced copy of this book - all opinions are my own.
I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed this particular read - sometimes the sci-fi/paranormal type reads don't really click with me as a reader, but this was not the case with Coma Dreams. I found myself completely absorbed in the story, which is a very unique twist on a standard suspense novel.
While this is the second book in a three book series, you don't necessarily need to have read the first book to understand what is happening in this book, which I genuinely appreciate in a series. While I didn't NEED to know what happened in the first book, after this book I am curious enough to have ordered the first book just so I can find out.
The thing that I enjoyed the most about this book, was how it incorporated the realities of trauma and addiction into an action packed plot, making it feel like an overall more human story. I always fear in a book that has a sci-fi angle that you will lose the humanity, but Mann does not succumb to that at all.
Overall this book ended up being a page turner that was near impossible to set down once I got started. I'm looking forward to seeing how book one plays out, and then what comes down the line in book three. Certainly one you should pick up if you are looking for something a little different and a lot interesting.
A follow-up to the critically acclaimed suspense novel, Full Breach, N. Lawrence Mann unleashes the second installment of the Blue Warp series. Struggling with inner demons after the loss of his child, Retired Air Force Colonel Brett Stafford is in search of missing pieces in his life when he is involved in a single-car accident and slips into a coma for six months. Using his newfound—and unrefined—ability to heal, Brennen Reynolds attempts to revive the colonel on the day his life support is to be terminated. Brennen is only partially successful, as the person awoken is not Colonel Stafford. He may look the same, but this colonel is dangerous. Brutal killings occur when the new entity escapes from a New England rehabilitation center and vanishes into the waking world. Pressured by time, Brennen and his friends must try to piece together what went wrong and how to reverse the process before further tragedies occur and the colonel loses himself forever.
