Sage Calahan’s psychic predictions are often revered, but when he’s off the mark, some call him a charlatan. On a lonely road in Indiana, Halloween night, he experiences a chilling meet with the unknown as his mind wanders into the dreamscape world. Is this happening real, or something filling his thoughts from his dreamscape ability? What will happen to the four young college students if they enter the deserted house on the hill?
In another place far from the boredom of everyday life, a sensation comes over Sage Calahan that can’t be ignored. He has been through this before, when a feeling, a presence has captured his attention. Does he take the path of premonition leading him to the road of freedom or succumb to the wheels of chance?
Sage, a likable guy, is always there to help those seeking him, and is in tune to a higher plane of consciousness that most can’t explain. He knows all to the person wanting answers, if you’re a believer.
The feeling of uneasiness that overcomes Sage keeps him alert to any potential dangers, senses that serves him well throughout this story. Along with Sage, there are companions, his friends, Summer, Jason and Tara. They are purposefully placed in this story as mild distractions, around to keep Sage’s sanity intact.
This could have been a tale about Sage in the misadventures he encounters down a lonely road, but the plot takes you on a trip into the realm of second chances, from the big city into the setting of a small town, with appearances by an old gas attendant and the ever curious waitress.
Author Mary Suzanne does a very good job capturing the surreality of it all leaving no doubt that reality is just a state of mind. You will be surprised to find how easy this book is to read--no re-reading to understand anything is necessary.
I was taken on a journey and I enjoyed where I wound up. I recommend this one. I loved it and bet you will too. Go out and get this book! You're in for the trip of a lifetime.
