The Night Walkers series book#1
By J. R. Johansson
Summary courtesy of
It’s been four years since I slept, and I suspect it is killing me.

Instead of sleeping, Parker Chipp enters the dream of the last person he’s had eye contact with. He spends his nights crushed by other people’s fear and pain, by their disturbing secrets—and Parker can never have dreams of his own. The severe exhaustion is crippling him. If nothing changes, Parker could soon be facing psychosis and even death.

Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. Parker starts going to bizarre lengths to catch Mia’s eye every day. Everyone at school thinks he’s gone over the edge, even his best friend. And when Mia is threatened by a true stalker, everyone thinks it’s Parker.

Suffering blackouts, Parker begins to wonder if he is turning into someone dangerous. What if the monster stalking Mia is him after all?

If your looking for excitement and a book that's not a clone of everything else, Insomnia is a great book to start with.
Parker is exhausted, he hasn't slept for four years. Instead, he spends all night trapped in other people’s dreams—specifically, the last person he makes eye contact with before he goes to bed.

Because he’s always so exhausted, people think he’s sick and his mother thinks he’s doing drugs. Parker keeps the real reason for his haggard appearance to himself, knowing that no one would believe him anyway.

Porker's drawn to Mia whose dreams are so peaceful that hes actually able to fall asleep in them, and he wakes up the next day feeling rested for the first time in years.
Mia turns out to be the new girl in school, but catching her eye every evening proves to be almost impossible. Parker doesn’t want to lose his new-found ability to sleep, so he tries to get as close to Mia as he can—even if she doesn’t want him to.

Parker's desperation increases when Mia receives threatening emails,and notes that hrust her back into a terrible memory from her past, Parker is more determined than ever to figure out who is trying to scare Mia while keeping his friends safe and trying to get some sleep.

Insomnia will keep you up all night just trying to figure out what is going on! There are so many twists, turns, and red herrings that I was kept guessing until the very end. Parker’s decent into madness is swift and disturbing. His struggle with The Darkness reminded me of Dexter’s from the Tv series of the same name.This was a totally creepy riveting read, that kept me on the edge of my seat, Johansson delivers all the elements necessary to keep readers totally enthralled.
5 stars
