From the author of The Living Dead comes the story of Lori Blaine, the last slim hope for a waking world on a collision course with catastrophe.
Lori Blaine is not your average seventeen-year-old high school student—she's cool and iconoclastic in her dreadlocks and natty thrift shop garb. With an IQ that’s off the charts, she is the ersatz leader of the eclectic Goth group of Valesburg Central High School. But Lori Blaine has two problems--lack of sleep, and The Door.
For months Lori’s dreams have been perpetually haunted by a strange ominous door. The door is always there on the periphery. Beckoning to her. Daring her to see what might be waiting for her on the other side.
At the urging of an overzealous school psychologist, Lori decides to face her fears, and propels herself through the dream door...and immediately plunges into a shattered, looking glass world.
Welcome to the In-Between—the terrifying, surreal, topsy-turvy territory behind peoples’ dreams. Here, Lori unwittingly becomes a conduit between nightmares and reality—and not just her own.
As the universe begins to unravel and the entire space-time continuum crumbles, Lori is thrust into a new role: savoir, where she quickly learns her powers are beyond anything anyone could have imagined.
