REM World: Lucid
Thirty-one, funeral director, London.
That’s pretty much all Julian Desmond remembers from his waking life.
He wakes in a dimension that can only be accessed via dreams (REM World). A rock monster tells him dreams are real and they can kill him.
The Resistance promises to protect him, but when he receives his Gift of premonition, he learns it’s at a price.
Laughing Man seems clueless, harmless, even doltish. But he’s evidently destined to join forces with an immortal tyrant.
Julian chooses to save his life.
He intends to use him as leverage, but as the nights wear on and he grows more powerful, will he come to regret it?
⫷ A harrowing journey of self-destruction, addiction, grief, trauma, and healing. ⫸
In REM World: Lucid, dive into relationship dynamics rarely written about in other fictional works. While the closeted Julian comes to grips with his sexuality, the list of people he can trust is almost nonexistent. REM World: Lucid explores the consequences of sexual assault on the victim and the pitfalls of substance abuse/addiction. ‘If you ignore your problems, you’re doomed to repeat them.’
