Escape From A Nightmare is a most-unique blend of love, hiphop, and premonition.
The star character, Gabriana, is not your average chick. She is a dreamer. She has dreams of living the good life on her terms, and then, there are the “other” dreams – the disturbing omens that come while sleeping, whispering the conflict of everything. That’s a problem…and that’s where it all starts.
Not only does the dreams crack at her sanity, they also speak horrible warnings concerning her newly famed boyfriend Scholar; the one whom she worships like he’s a god. She literally bows down to this guy. He is her everything – until Gabriana meets Khali Simone.
That’s when the rollercoaster jumps the track, and it gets crazy. This is a beautiful and closely real urban story about one woman’s heartache behind the dark side of love, hiphop, fear and premonition – and ultimately the fate behind it all! This book is a page-turner for everyone.
