For as long as she could remember Freya Lachlan’s grandmother was the DreamWatcher, the guardian of the people of Inverness who stood watch over their dreams and protected them from the evils that inhabited them and the wrath of angered Gods. 

But Moira Lachlan is an old woman now and her powers have weakened considerably. Now a new terror stalks the people she once protected, a demon from Hell known as the Nuckelavee.

Unable to keep on protecting the villagers, Moira knows that the time has come to pass the power to her granddaughter, hoping that Freya will have inherited sufficient knowledge from her to be their savior.

It’s more frightening and dangerous than anything Freya has ever known, but soon she was drawn to a man in her dream, Camdyn Auchten, a fearless young man who also possesses a power that was passed down from his grandfather, who died fighting the Nuckelavee.

Together, the two of them are determined to find a way to save their people just as they begin to fall for one another. But do they have sufficient power to beat the demon that stalks their people? Or are they destined to fail like many more before them?

Illusive Storm: A Murder Mystery Suspense Thriller

GET MY FREE BOOK

A storm, a group of strangers, a murder, and one question—who’s next?

Forced into a motel to shelter from a storm, the group couldn’t be more different; a family on the brink of collapse, a man with a dark secret, a bankrupt private investigator with a gambling problem, a priest searching for his brother, a couple of friends, the counter clerks… none of them seem capable of murder. But with a body on the floor and suspicions mounting, it’s time to figure out who the killer is before someone else winds up dead.

Is the heavily tattooed and pierced up man the killer? He’s clearly hiding something.

Everyone turns to the P.I. for answers. With the cell towers down, her best advice is for everyone to stay in their rooms until the storm is over and they can call in help. So when hormones take over and a tryst leads two of them to make out in the lobby, the pair is stunned to see familiar faces on T.V. Apparently they also have armed criminals in their midst…

When the storm passes, it will all be much clearer — or crazier.
