Overview

Without sleep, her life became a living nightmare.

Fatal. Insomnia.
From New York Times bestselling and Thriller Award-winning author CJ Lyons an explosive medical thriller with a dark and edgy twist, "a heroine you'll never forget and a story that whips by at bullet speed" (Tess Gerritsen). 

"CJ Lyons scores a major triumph with FAREWELL TO DREAMS. Totally absorbing and impossible to put down." ~Douglas Preston, #1 NYT bestselling author

In the chaos of the ER, functioning without sleep is a prized skill. But even Dr. Angela Rossi will admit that five months is far too long. Then a dead nun speaks to her while Angela is holding the nun's heart in her hand.

"Find the girl," the nun commands--although no one else in the trauma room can hear, the words drilling directly into Angela's brain. "Save the girl."

Aided by a police detective fallen from grace, Angela searches the midnight catacombs beneath the city, facing down a ruthless gang leader and stumbling onto a serial killer's lair. Her desperate quest to save the girl leads her to the one thing she least expected to find: a last chance for love.

As her symptoms escalate in bizarre and disturbing ways, Angie realizes exactly how serious her illness is. She might be dying, but she's finally choosing how to live...

FAREWELL TO DREAMS is the first installment in a new series of medical thrillers with a sci-fi twist that features non-stop action, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and a surprise ending you won't see coming.

I can't express in words how much I enjoyed Farewell to Dreams by C.J. Lyons. I've read hundreds of books and this one gripped me in it's spell on the first few pages. The more I read, the more hooked I became. I finished the book lastnight (actually at 3am) because I could not put it down. Such an unusual story and marvelous characters. I just started the 2nd book and am hoping that our wonderful heroine survives. Thank you C.J. for writing such a powerful story. I want more.

Yet, another winner from Lyons. I know when I venture into Lyons world, I am for a great ride. One of my peeves is when a review all but tells you the story, that is not for me. Did I like the book? Yes. Will I tell my friends about it? Yes. I believe every emotion was brought out while reading this book. I am pulling for my favorite couple to endure. I am eagerly awaiting Raging Dawn. J. Matthews

Starts out slow and then, boom, the action doesn't stop. Interesting story line and great characters. This is just the beginning of the story, part two A Raging Dawn coming soon. Well written as all the other books by this author, characters you can identify with, and a plot with lots of twists.

This started a little slow to me because I wasn't sure where she was going, but by the second chapter it was grabbing me and kept it up to the end :)

Wow! What a ride! And, it never stops. CJ Lyons is a very talented author. This book was jam packed with characters, situations, suspense, emotions and heart. So take a big breath before you "dive" in to this one. You won't be disappointed.
