This is the story of Alex Torken, a young writer who wakes up to discover his thoughts of death are becoming reality… a bit of a problem for a thriller writer. Yet trying to subdue his murderous dreams is just the beginning. Alex will find himself in the middle of a feud that’s been raging for the better part of a millennium. While digging for answers, Alex will learn he is a direct descendant of a member of the Spanish Inquisition and the nightmares are revenge for the atrocities committed by his ancestor five centuries ago. Now he must face a modern covenant of witches bent on manipulating his mind into a grave, while questioning everything, his past, his calling, even the origin of his own inspiration.
