Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer Book Review and Giveaway
By: Demelza Carlton
There are real monsters out there. The worst part is that they're human.
They took her away from me.
I mumbled a protest through the haze of pain and exhaustion that had turned me into little more than a zombie. I'll never be able to watch a zombie movie again without remembering this night, I thought.
"It's all right - we have to move her to take care of her. She's hurt worse than you," I was told. "We need to treat you, too. There's a gunshot wound in your shoulder."
One of the hospital staff looked grim and came over. She started firing questions at me.
"I was shot."
"A homicidal lunatic with a gun and bad aim."
"What happened to her?"
"Looks like someone tried to kill her."
Nathan found Caitlin on a beach covered in blood. Saving her life was just the start. Now he's the prime suspect and he has to find out who's really responsible. Both of their lives depend on it.
Who hurt her?
Why was he shot?
What did he promise?
Why doesn't his story add up?
Who was the dead man on the beach?
What will she remember when she wakes up?
Dark, disturbing and definitely scary - Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer is the first book in Demelza Carlton's Nightmares Trilogy. The second book is Necessary Evil of Nathan Miller.
In the beginning of this book Nathans story to the cops about what happened to Caitlin and how he found her confused me. It didn't make any sense to me until I realized he had lied. The characters are so important to me that I most likely wont like the book if I don't like the characters. I didn't really like Nathan but I did like Caitlin. Caitlin is stubborn and doesn't like to ask for help but Nathan seemed clueless(like most guys are about girls I guess). I thought Caitlin story and the nightmares she had were heartbreaking but I would have preferred to hear her story from her. I think the second book will be in Caitlin's point of view so I can't wait to read her side of the story. I would give this book 3 and a half stars.
Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish. She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below. Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
The bestselling Ocean's Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by the Nightmares trilogy. If you'd like to know more about Demelza or the background behind her books, you can check out her website at demelzacarlton.com or any of the other places she frequents:
