Seeing is believing...

Thomas Brown can't see color, but he can see people's true souls. His abilities allow him to work with criminal investigators and deliver justice to families of the wronged. And he's starting to accept that his life will forever be in black and white...

Then he encounters Helena Grayse, and everything changes. She brings vibrant color to his world, and he brings acceptance and belief to hers. But Helena's past is quickly catching up with her, and Thomas is in the crosshairs.

As an enemy hidden in plain sight threatens their every move, they'll have to rely on their love to beat the darkness.

I tend to forget that the Fatal Dreams series is a little darker and more twisted than a typical read. Never Let Me Fall is filled with flawed characters, histories of abuse, and twisted dreams. In this Ohio town, everyone’s paths seem to cross and crisscross and secrets never stay that way. Thomas, our hero, is a consultant for the BCI. His special talent? Reading the death shadows and know the cause and manner of death. The price of his talent is his ability to see color. Our heroine, Helena, is a down on her luck felon who spent years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit. Once Thomas sees Helena, he can actual see colors for a moment. There is that instant attraction factor between them and each recognizes the lunacy of their feeling, but both have enough experience with the weird or unexplainable that they don’t dwell on it much.

All the characters in the Fatal Dreams series have tragic pasts. Messed up, abused, and pretty much destroyed in every way a person can be is what these characters endured. They aren’t perfect but they have moved beyond their circumstances and try to carve a life for themselves. People in this crazy Ohio town keep throwing trouble their way though. Seriously, why would anyone live in a place like this? Nothing good ever happens in this town! (As an Ohioan I am a pretty sure this is a dig at Ohio in general)

The plot of Never Let Me Fall is very twisty. Like I said, nothing good happens in this town, so there is no shortage of bad guy/girl suspects. There is also no shortage of danger, near death experiences, and violence. This is a blend of paranormal, suspense, and dark romance that always keeps me reading long past my bed time. Roads crafts supremely interesting stories that delve into tragic topics, supernatural skills, and love that changes everything.

About Abbie Roads

Seven Things about Abbie Roads:

1.  She loves Snicker Parfaits. Gotta start with what’s most important, right?

2. She writes dark emotional books featuring damaged characters, but always gives her hero and heroine a happy ending… after torturing them for three hundred pages.

3. By day she’s a mental health counselor known for her blunt, honest style of therapy. At night she burns up the keyboard. Well… Burn might be too strong a word. She at least sits with her hands poised over the keyboard, waiting for inspiration to strike. And when it does—the keyboard might get a little warm.

4.  She can’t stand it when people drive slowly in the passing lane. Just saying. That’s major annoying. Right?

5.  She loves taking pictures of things she thinks are pretty.

6.  She’s represented by Michelle Grajkowski of 3 Seas Literary.

7.  Her first book RACE THE DARKNESS was a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Pick for Fall.

  1. I have this ARC waiting for me to be read, will be picking it up over the next day or so, and I have been seeing quite a few reviews for this one lately. I can’t wait. I do love a book that has all those twists and turns
