Race the Darkness is the first book in the Fatal Dreams series penned by Abbie Roads. This would be my first but not my last book by Abbie Roads because I must as a reader and a reviewer must finish what I started. Plus, this book was phenomenal.

If you can grab my attention from chapter one,  I am all into finishing the book. But with Race the Darkness I wasn’t expecting this phenomenal writing

With just one accident Xander Stone life was changed. Now he has the ability to hear people thoughts, not but touch he just has to be in the vicinity of the person(s), Maybe that is why when there is a witness that the police want to crack, they call in Xander.

Trying to find his relief in the bottle and even that doesn’t restrain the voice from coming through speaking just two words “HELP ME”.

Isleen Walker long since given up hope of being rescued. Being tortured by a zealot nut case, she too seeks peace, and to is unable to find it. Until one day her hero finally arrived.

With Isleen found Xander assumed that the voice shall haunt him know more. But he learns that the danger to Isleen is not yet over and that a greater force is involved.

Race the Darkness, a dark paranormal thriller that sets this series up pretty nicely that it has this reviewer saying “Is the next book out yet”

About Abbie Roads

Abbie Roads loves Snickers Parfaits and acrylic pour painting. It’s her new obsession. The pour painting. Not the parfaits. Though the parfaits would qualify as an obsession too. She spends her days a mental health counselor always looking on the brightside, but at night she likes to write dark and dangerous things—with kissing and sexy times. She loves reading inspirational quotes and stories about serial killers. She is married to her favorite fellow and they have two cranky old rescue dogs that are not spoiled. Not at all. Okay. Maybe a little. Alright, the dogs are terribly spoiled, but they do give lots of cuddles and kisses in return.

Her first book RACE THE DARKNESS was a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Pick for Fall.
