And then ‘someone’ decides to resume the project. About halfway into K.Z.’s novel, after clever and colorful character development, an order is given. The four friends, having had remained in touch with one another, yet living in different parts of the country, face encroaching, ominous, you-run-your-butt-off consequences. The pace goes from a highly revved second gear, to pedal to the metal and through every other. By a seemingly sinister desire for power, ‘she’s’ back—and she must have power. THE POWER. But at what cost?
What follows is action scene after another after another. This is where Dream State excels. High octane, down-to-earth people with their extraordinary talents, meet with a clash that’ll send your jaw to the floor. I hadn’t expected what came next! Dream State is like two books in one, and while I can see things are set up well for a fiery, payback, world-altering sequel, this story has a bit of just about everything.
Daring escapes—with special insights no others have the capability to access—and murder, unexpected consequences and hiding out from the big-bad, stop-at-nothing NSA agents. Love made, loves lost, and steamy sexy hell—on mind-warping drugs. Payback unimaginable, torturous, so much so I even sided with her, the maleficent antagonist. It was bad…whoa! A roller coaster speeding up, rocket thrusters pushing it, with an ending that sends—as the author so describes it—a ball of ice straight into the gut!
Five stars because I love sci-fi action, and dreaming. I’ve studied lucid dreaming for over a decade and this story was right up my alley. An original, unexpected nightmare. This one kept me on my tiptoes half of the time, crushing my chair’s armrests for the other half.
Can they escape? Who will make it, who won’t? I won’t say—but you won’t guess! My favorite parts of K.Z. Howell’s Dream State came at about 50% in, and then after about 75% in things really kick in. Lucid-dreaming dynamo. Dream State is one unfortunate turn of events after another, a leg-chopping crash, blood-raining from the sky. An all-out dash for freedom. Will anyone survive this? I didn’t see it coming. And by the look on the new director’s face, he didn’t either!
It is obvious that Howell has done extensive research into the annals of dreams. The novel is full of suspense, especially the second half of the tale. The concept of dream manipulation is interesting and no doubt that aspect would be of significance in the field of national security, terrorism and extensions of crimes in general. I hope that the author will explore this further in a follow up and I will wait and see. The only thing that I wanted to see more of was character development, a more in depth view of some of who these people were. Their hopes, dreams, fears. Overall a very enjoyable read.

Murder, mind-warping drugs, clearheaded dreams, sex as a power game. Thriller or horror or both?
Edgar Cayce, the mystic and clairvoyant, features as the premise for this extraordinary tale.
Dream State draws on sleep experiments and lucid dreaming. In this connection, it may be important to remember that ordinary humans only use a fraction of their brains. This is a thoughtful analysis of the possibilities and dangers of experimenting with extraordinary minds. Recommended
