    Summary

    It’s common knowledge among the paranormally inclined that imbibing a copious amount of Monster energy drinks at precisely 2 a.m. inside a 7-Eleven is a fast way to the land of the fair folk, but many people are unaware that similar effect can be achieved with fifteen shots of espresso and any big-name chain store that stays open late at night.

    You decide to stick with the classic technique. You grab two Monster cans off the shelf and pop open the tabs.

    She smells like… hm… like licorice, and sour blueberry candy, something bright and unnatural melting on the tongue. Like chloroform. Saccharine and sickening, the kind you can’t help but want more of. She smells dangerous, but the kind of dangerous you don't register until it’s far too late, you won’t even care, like a fly caught in honey—

    You jerk back, dizzy, and prop an arm on the wall to steady yourself. You’re naturally resistant, but shit, that’s a strong glamour.

    Summary

    Dream-sharing. A highly illegal little industry in which agents delve into people's dreams and unearth their deepest secrets and memories. And the Strider-Lalondes are the best in the business.

    Until Dirk Strider gets his fool ass trapped within the confines of his own subconscious, with his Auto-Responder playing malicious prison warden. To save him, it's going to take a team of the world's most talented dreamers to save him.

    Backed by the token rich friend, lead by the surliest extractor ever bribed out of retirement, haunted by the shade of the l8est and gr8est agent in the biz, and on the run through a dangerous tiered dream in a hostile mind, it's going to take a miracle to pull this one off.

    Oh Orpheus, sing to me all night...
