There was a lot to like in this story. The writing in this story was professional and well-done. The narrative also moves at a quick pace. I enjoyed working through the quandaries that Denny faces in dealing with this gift she has, and ultimately physical toll she has to pay for it. The novella has a strong mystery component to it. Part of the mystery is what is really occurring to Denny in her dreams. Is she really with the killer or is this just a vision that she’s having? My only complaint was that I didn’t think the prologue was really necessary. Make sure to check out this novella.

Though the author indicates that each of "STROKE OF" novellas is a standalone book, I found that they're more a serialization of a longer plot arc that deals with a missing boy. Yes, each novella has a self-contained plot arc as well, but the three novellas are all required to finish the longer, most compelling plot line. Go into this first book knowing that you'll need to buy the next two to have your curiosity satisfied fully.
These are interesting, unique novellas and worth the read if you enjoy paranormal. Even more so if you eschew gore; while the novellas don't shy away from the darker aspects of the story, BOWMAN steers clear of anything too graphic, which I for one appreciated.
4/5 Stars. Recommended.
Why do we dream? Are dreams truly a gateway to the soul or the doorway to the subconscious? Or is there even a difference?
Denny questions why she has this gift and whether or not it is even a privilege. Regardless, she seeks answers and tries to use her gift to help others avoid the turmoil she has no choice but to experience.
Ms. Bowman's use of the word makes you feel the emotions and environment as she spins through Denny's mind to portray an unwanted gift that only helps others while she herself is tortured.
A wonderfully gripping read.
