Lost Words in a Dream by Lucas Milliron
How do you move on when everyone you love is dead? What made you so special, that everyone else had to die?
After surviving horrific cosmic events in Leesburg Florida, Mark is struggling to move on with his life. It’s not the monsters he can’t block out, but the people of his past still haunting him.
Now hurricane Mary is about to devastate the Florida coast, trapping Mark and his coworkers in their apartment building. The monsters are back, but no one will believe him.
Survival isn’t the end of the story.
A Masterpiece of Modern Cosmic Horror
Mark's life is one of banality punctuated by terror. Living in a sparsely furnished apartment and working at a filthy cesspool of a fast-food restaurant, he thought he might have escaped the horrific events that transpired in Leesburg. But the dread and panic are always there, just beneath the surface, waiting to erupt, and some wounds never heal. Recollection of the events from his past come through only sporadically, intruding on his daily life at unexpected moments, triggered by seemingly unpredictable stray thoughts or disturbing noises and visions. As Mark struggles to remain in the here and now, he finds himself increasingly drawn into memories that he simultaneously wishes he could forget and desperately needs to unravel. Maybe he didn't escape at all, and it's all happening again. Milliron masterfully crafted this tale of cosmic horror, utilizing the imprecision of traumatic memories to provide us with an unreliable protagonist around whom the story plays out. This story has everything one could hope for in cosmic horror. Milliron blends a perfect mixture of secretive cults hidden within small-town populations, unspeakable horrors breaching the barriers that separate our world from somewhere cold and dark, hallucinatory visuals described with frightful detail, and a stochastic narrative that leaves the reader dizzied and struggling to piece together the mystery. Lost Words In a Dream is a story that will stick with you long after you've reached the conclusion, and you'll find yourself wishing you could go back in and experience it fresh all over again.
This book will have you feeling everything the characters feel. Lucas' versatility in his writing is one of the things I love the most about his books and this one is no exception. Creepy, captivating and characters that make you think they're real people.
