Being a ParaScience freshman is a nightmare come true
Hailey’s dreams have always been, well...vivid. As in monsters from her
nightmares follow her into her waking life vivid. When her big sister goes missing, eighteen-
year-old Hailey finds the only thing keeping her safe from a murderous 3,000-year old beast is
an equally terrifying creature who’s fallen “madly” in love with her. Competing to win her
affection, the Dream Creature, Asher, lures her to the one place that offers safety—a ParaScience
university in Alaska he calls home. There, she studies the science of the supernatural and must
learn to live with a roommate from Hell, survive a tunneling earworm, extract a carnivorous
splinter, evade the campus poltergeists, and hope the only creature who can save her from an evil
immortal doesn’t decide to kill her himself.

I enjoyed this book I really did. However I felt like Hailey at times. When she would ask her Uncle what was going on, she would only get half the story. Uncle Pix would start to tell Hailey about their family then the other uncles would make a grunt and Pix would clam up. I know Hailey was getting mad.
I do have to say that this book is enriched with knowledge when it is given to Hailey. I totally felt like I was walking in her shoes or her wellies. She didn't know what was really going on, when she did put things together it seemed at the last minute, and it was to late.
I would really like to read the next book. The way this one ended left you hanging in a way. Not saying much but when you do read this book your jaw will drop.
Early praise for EERIE:
“5 stars! I felt there was a mash-up between Hogwarts, Xavier Institute for Exceptional Youngsters, and Beauty and the Beast, AND I LOVED IT! The creatures, the classes, the college, the Middle of Nowhere! How awesome!”
- Truth About Books by A. Fae on EERIE
“I would definitely buy this series. I really loved these characters. It read very quickly, and the Alaska jokes really got me giggling.
- Confessions of a Book Whore, Jamie S. on EERIE
“EERIE is Harry Potter meets Twilight meets the Bible with a little bit of the abusive/controlling 50
Shades male mixed in. This is a really fast-paced, exciting novel. There is plenty of drama, romance,
mystical beings and mystery to keep you flipping the pages and promising yourself "just one more
chapter" before bed. And then before you know it, ten o'clock turns into two in the morning...again.”
- Amanda's Own Little Corner Book Reviews
Nowhere to Hide
“Judge of your natural character by what you do in your dreams.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hailey plunked her head on the desk and groaned. Why, why…why couldn’t she
just tell Asher that she wanted out, that she was afraid—afraid of the others, afraid
of dying, and even afraid of…of him. After all, he was planning to kill her. Only
temporarily, but still.
She couldn’t believe she was even considering it, but she had no choice. If
Asher didn’t kill her, one of the others would. Permanently.
And Asher protected her. He cared about her. He loved her, right?
Asher—an emotionless creature. Hailey wasn’t sure if he was even capable of
love. Oh, this made absolutely no sense. Kill her to save her? Was that love?
Freshman year at her dream college was turning into nightmare, and as she
rolled her forehead on the desk, the library’s impossibly large ceiling clock echoed
a thump with her heart. She simply had to pull on her big girl pants and tell Asher
she was done.
She squeezed her eyes shut as a swarm of butterflies took flight in her stomach.
Lately, she felt an awful lot like Jekyll and Hyde: logical, rational
ParaScience student by day—emotional monstrosity at night. Come to think of it,
this was more like The Phantom of the Opera, and she was the naïve student who
didn’t realize the secret and strange angel she’d come to know was actually a
“I’m not a maniac.”
Hailey jumped up. She didn’t mean to say that out loud.
Asher slid behind her, putting his lips next to her ear. “But I suppose I am
homicidal,” he whispered, his breath on her skin sending goose bumps down her
arms and legs. She leaned into him and sighed. So much for steadfast resolve.
Wrapping his arms around her waist, he pulled her closer.
“How did you know I was here?” she whispered.
“You were dreaming, Hailey,” he murmured. “I’ll always find you when
