My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a short story about 2 brother’s who go and explore and cave when as they are making their escape Patrick suddenly dies.

This leaves Frank stuck in the tiny tunnels unable to get passed Patrick’s body. To deal with the situation Frank drifts off to a nightmare world and the story switches between his nightmares and the real situation.

I did enjoy the story but it was a bit confusing at the start trying to work out how to tell the difference between his nightmares and reality

The story Dread by Jeff Wade is a short horror book that is wonderful to read and has moments when I got chills. It is a story that hooked me in from the start and I read the entire book in one sitting. The author has written a story that is page-turning and had me wondering what will happen next. The main character is intriguing as he tries to figure what has happened to him. There is a struggle to recalls events. This story takes the term psychological thriller to a new level. There are moments that are emotional and moments that sent shivers up my spine. There are also intense moments. What happens to the main character in the story? Read this book to find out. This book is an example of wonderful writing and making the main character come alive. I would highly recommend reading this book.

It is a psychological thriller that will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat. The twists and turns the characters take you on will keep you turning pages. The story is well written as well as the characters are engaging and make the story feel real. When Frank finds himself trapped in a cave, he starts to lose his mind. Will he make it out safely or will fate have something else in store for him. Is it real or is it a nightmare that feels real? I highly recommend reading this book.

The nightmares continue.
More clues are revealed.
But as his amnesia fades, so does his sanity.


Jeff Wade is a grandmaster and instructor of Taekwondo and wrote the novel Drawer #7, the novella Finding Nowhere, and the short story Dread. He was the Crabb Writing Award winner at Belmont University in Nashville. With over three decades practicing and teaching martial arts, and an extensive background in firearms and gunsmithing, Wade’s writing depicts action scenes with uncanny authenticity. But his stories reach far deeper than that. He has also studied psychology, which he applies both on the mat and on the page. His characters are loaded with ticks and quirks that breathe life into them. The scenarios in which they find themselves are not only difficult, but often heart-wrenching. While his themes tend to the dark side, they are gilded with light. The characters–and the reader–are posed tough questions. Perplexing scenarios. Moral dilemmas. All with a hint of dark humor. Jeff Wade lives in Miami with his wife Chikako, four kids, his dog Lucy, a bunny named Jojo, and a chicken named Mary.
