Blog Tour and Review: Sliding Beneath the Surface- Doug Dillon

In old St. Augustine, Florida, fifteen-year-old Jeff Golden’s recurring dream of being stabbed in the chest and bleeding all over his bed is driving him crazy. It’s causing him to lose sleep and giving him severe headaches. When his psychically gifted friend Carla and an ornery Native American shaman named Lobo try to help, Jeff is inundated with terrifying paranormal experiences.

Reaching out of Florida’s distant past, something increasingly entangles Jeff in tentacles of danger that threaten his sanity and eventually his life. But the harder he tries to understand, the deeper he gets. When comprehension finally dawns though, time has almost run out. Lobo does his best to prepare Jeff for what he must face in order to survive but it may be too little and too late.

It’s at this point that both Jeff and Carla find themselves swept headlong into an alternative reality from which they may never return. If they don’t quickly and fully adapt to this situation, all hope is lost. From Lobo they know how it might be possible to change what is happening but the question is, can they? Repeatedly, Lobo has told both teens, “You create your own reality whether in this world or in another.” If acted upon properly, that advice just might save their lives and end suffering on an even wider scale.

My review: I have had this book on my kindle for awhile now just waiting for when I had time to finally pick it up and read it. I did really enjoy this book. I haven't ever read anything quite like it. I'm having a really hard time putting it into words right now. It's like a paranormal, time- travel, ghost, historical fiction bundle of awesome. It's a book that really makes you ponder what the author has said. Could what happens in the book actually happen? Doug Dillon did such a detailed job I'm really starting to wonder. By reading this novel I could really tell how much research the author must of had to do to get everything just perfect. Plus I really liked reading about all of the history.

Jeff was a great main charcater to read about. I just wished that we had learned more about his past. Also I hope we can meet his dad in one of the books. And maybe his deadbeat mom will make an appearance. Carla was also fun to read about, but I want to meet her grandmother. Then there is Lobo. He was the most intriguing charcater by far. He was full of mystery but at the same time held all of the answers.
I will be continuing on with this trilogy. It was well written and held my interest, I would recommend it to readers young and old. I feel like both would gain from reading this story.
