NEW! Join New York Times bestseller and real life ER physician CJ Lyons as she returns to her medical thriller roots with a heart wrenching tale of good and evil, despair and hope, and the unexpected gift of grace that comes with embracing our mortality.
“FAREWELL TO DREAMS has it all: a heroine you'll never forget and a story that whips by at bullet speed." ~Tess Gerritsen, NYT bestselling author of DIE AGAIN
“CJ Lyons scores a major triumph with FAREWELL TO DREAMS. Totally absorbing and impossible to put down.” ~Douglas Preston, #1 NYT bestselling author
In the chaos of the ER, functioning without sleep is a prized skill. But even Dr. Angela Rossi will admit that five months is far too long, especially when accompanied by other worrisome symptoms: night sweats, tremors, muscle spasms, fevers. Then a dead nun speaks to her while Angela is holding the nun’s heart in her hand.
“Find the girl,” the nun commands—although no one else in the trauma room can hear, the words drilling directly into Angela’s brain. “Save the girl.”
Falling into catatonic states where she freezes in the middle of a resuscitation and hears dead nuns talking to her? Not good. Maybe she should check herself into her own hospital…except a lost girl’s life depends on Angela.
Because the girl IS real. The threat to her is deadly.
Aided by a police detective fallen from grace, Angela searches the midnight catacombs beneath the city, facing down a ruthless gangleader and stumbling onto a serial killer’s lair. Her desperate quest to save the girl leads her to the one thing she least expected to find: a last chance for love.
As her symptoms escalate in bizarre and disturbing ways, Angie realizes exactly how serious her illness is. She might be dying, but she’s finally choosing how to live…

If you don't care about the people then you don't care about the story. Angela Rossi is a passionate skilled ER doctor and she is losing everything."Farewell to Dreams" is a great title, it sums up how Angela feels as her life spirals out of control.
In this story and the sequel "Raging Dawn" you are shown pieces of a puzzle, only not all the pieces fit. It might be that there is more than one puzzle. What is obvious might not be the reality. Even at the finish you keep learning more.
When you finish Farewell to Dreams it is a complete story but you really can;t wait for the next story to reveal itself. Anne Chaconas at Bad Ass Marketing gave me the chance to read the sequel "Raging Dawn" and that book was every bit as tight and suspenseful as the first book. There are surprises and even hints that some things that were completed in the first book may not be as finished as you thought.
Darn, now I want to read the next book and it probably isn't even written yet.
Fatal Insomnia - I'd never heard of such an illness. An amazing thing to learn about but what a horrible condition for someone to live with. Cannot for the life of me understand someone who is trapped in their own body. Just horrifying.
I will not discuss the details. It's so many stories intertwined. Just let me say this is one book you have to read. C. J. Lyons: you did good!! Would love to give you more than five stars - like maybe ten or twelve. Hope to read many more books you've written.
She meets two men , Detective Matthew Ryder and Devon Price, who become a very important part of her life in a very short time. All of them are very interested in justice for victims of violence and learn to work together.
This is one story that I will never forget!
The only thing that kept me from giving it five stars was that I found it hard to keep up with the characters. Not that there were too many, but with all of the different perspectives it was hard to settle into each characters POV. Especially since Angela Rossi's was in first person - the best POV in my opinion. I connected with her far more than any other.
The other thing that made the characters confusing was that some characters referred to others by different names (some would call them by their last names, while others would call them by their first name). The lack of consistency made it hard to figure out who was who and pulled me out of the story, trying to figure out who the character was interacting with or talking about.
The ending was surprising, but good.

I was gripped by the end of the first chapter or possibly earlier. A very "easy to read" writing style with characters that you believe in and want to see succeed.
A storyline that seems a little far fetched in some respects but not unbelievable and credible throughout.
Altogether a very enjoyable read and this certainly won't be the last CJ Lyons book I read.
Well done C J keep up the good work. Not read a bad one yet.
Once I hit a little past mid point I became decidedly more engaged in the story and the characters and the pace really picked up. A couple of times I read longer than intended. The author's very good at end of chapter cliff hangers!
I'd probably give the first half a three and the second half a 4.5. Overall, worth a read! And maybe moreso if you like thrillers. Althought it's a genre I watch, I don't often read it.
