Summary

The last of the Dreamwalkers seeks answers in the long-lost Compendium, but the greatest mystery lies within his own past. With no memory, no family, and no allies—only the inherited ability to move from the physical realm into the collective unconscious called the Dreamscape—the Sleeping Man will fight against the conformity demanded by the Volto Empire's black and red standard.  
The journey will be long and arduous as the Sleeping Man encounters a race of desert hunters guarding the Compendium, forest-dwelling Leshy who demand to count his rings, and the dreams of the dead.

    Three strikes and you’re out—or so the saying goes. But when three strange occurrences happen in the same week, Kate Pierce finds it far more alarming than a simple coincidence. 
    Kate’s horrific nightmares have returned with a vengeance and cause her to doubt her role as a detective who is taken seriously by her colleagues. A stranger in town has an unusual attraction to Kate, and her former landlord has just been brutally murdered in her old apartment. 
    The Washburn County Sheriff’s Office has its hands full trying to solve a murder without any suspects, but when a clue from an old case rears its ugly head, Kate pulls out all the stops to prove her worthiness to her team. 
    The resident psychic detective has no idea of the  
    adversary she’s up against, and her risky actions may cost the lives of her and her dearest friends. 
    All Amber Monroe books are standalone stories but since characters carry over, they are best read in chronological order.
