A rogue wave, a struggling swimmer -- Jillian goes to help. It could be the last thing she does... in this realm. As doctors sturggle to save her, she takes her own journey, choosing to open that door and walk through to another time. She sees herself as Hotohke'e, a Native American; getting married, raising her family, then dying from disease that was unknown to her people. On her death, she passes through more doors, more lives, struggling to hide her family from the sadistic monsters who rule over the future realm; servicing her master in one way and his children in another; as they too die. Each door reveals another skin Jillian once wore. She will experience England and France in the time of Henry the Eighth -- Germany during the second world war, and even purgatory; unwillingly doing the will of a supreme commander. Will she linger too long at one of these lives or is she off to find a new one to live?
Being a Dreamer has its perks; unfortunately, Shelby is having one dream too many about people meeting their tragic end. She is not alone. Since childhood Shelby and Tristan have been frequent characters in each other's subconcious world but have never met, until now.
Shelby catches sight of her familiar visitor in the halls of their school and realizes he is more than just a player in her visions. She is determined to warn Tristan of his impending doom, even if it means he'll think she is insane. Before she has an opportunity to approach him though, Tristan introduces himself and shares some unsettling news. He is also a Dreamer and it is Shelby's lifeless body he sees in his dreams.
Shelby and Tristan should have died. What they see as a gift, Death sees as interference with fate. Despite keeping their gift hidden, one figure has taken notice. Death intends to stop them from meddling with the fate of others... permanently.
Death is now their shared nemesis. Eluding Death's fatal designs will take vigilance, wit and the insight of their prophetic dreams. Even with the ability to see the enemy's master plan, it may not be enough if Death throws in a twist, unless Shelby comes up with a twist of her own. Would it be enough to win round two? Sometimes you can cheat Death.
