No one warned them hypnosis could kill you.
Wouldn't it be cool to suddenly have the battle skills of a seasoned warrior? What if the battles felt real but there was no physical risk to you? Wouldn't it be perfect if the hypnotist in charge of your session were not insanely evil and using you as a weapon in a plot for revenge? Four friends, two in love, two in hate enter into a Group Hypnosis study attempting to introduce fantasy adventures to small groups. They are promised a video game type of adventure as elf warriors, a sorceress and a fairy, rescuing an Elf Queen from her crystal prison. As soon as they fall under the good doctor's spell everything goes wrong. Suddenly the adventure is more real than they could have ever imagined. They find themselves in a hostile world they can't escape.
3 out of 5 (good)
This book shows a lot of promise but for me, a lot of details were missed out or it was presumed that you already knew. The fantasy aspect of it was very good and it was easy to like their 'quest'. The sense of freedom that Nicole found as a Woodland Elf was amusing to read and easy to sympathise with. A good book to read if you don't want anything too lengthy or involved. A good twist to the tale and an ending that leaves you wanting more.

I love to a good adventure. I also love a good romance. As the mother of seven children I also learned to love to play video games. One day it occurred to me to write an adventure that flowed like a video game and I added a touch of romance. Thus, Hypnotic Journey was born. The HJ characters are like a family to me. They are foolish, daring, resourceful and full of passion not only for life but for the friendships they have created in this world and the next. My love for Science Fiction gave birth to the Treborel Series. Paranormal romance adventures featuring a psychotic villain and a multiple layer of hero's fighting to survive the chaos. I write about how friendship and love can carry you through situations that you might not otherwise survive. You will find my stories exciting and steamy but I am not an erotic writer. I want my stories to stand on their own. My stories fade to dark when the steam begins to rise, but take it from me, the steam does rise and emotions do soar.
