There are no long, drawn out descriptions of anywhere, but he seems to implant the picture into your brain without you realising it and the plots are always fast paced and exciting, with Tommy Nightmare being no exception. Do I recommend it? This series is definitely not one to miss out on. Go get yourself a copy! Aug 09, Smash added it Shelves: Read this review at Smash Attack Reads!
Tommy Nightmare opens up with 12 year old Tommy in foster care. We learn that life is not good for Tommy. He is beaten by his religious wackadoo foster father and none of his foster brothers want anything to do with him because of the extreme fear he makes them all feel. A terrible incident occurs and Tommy finds a way out of his hellish home. To Read this review at Smash Attack Reads!

He notices Ashleigh on TV, and is inexplicably dawn to her. He uses his fear-inducing charm to break free, and finds himself in Fallen Oak. Interest in the book: As evil as Tommy seemed to be, I was rooting for him. Not to kill of Jenny and Seth, but to find happiness. I hoped throughout this novel that his story would end on a positive, though Ashleigh got her claws in deep, yet again. Jenny really matures in this novel.
myzymudina.tk: Tommy Nightmare (The Paranormals, Book 2) eBook: JL Bryan: Kindle Store
There is a really touching scene between Jenny and her father that really choked me up. Wondering his role in the last book, Alexander Death, sent my imagination into a frenzy! The world expands in Tommy Nightmare as we are introduced to more characters, and the plot deepens as the stakes rise! Other than wanting to punch minor character Wooly in the face every time he opened his pie hole, I really, really enjoyed this book. I like how the story left characters scattered and angry, leaving so many possibilities for the final installment!

Jul 16, Books rated it really liked it Shelves: Bryan brings back key characters from the first book and adds to the mix a handful of exciting new characters with their own unique talents to amp up the suspense. It was great to meet up again with Jenny and Seth and in a way, also with Ashleigh. Imagine a teenage girl wielding the power of love and using that to manipulate her parents and an entire town of people to bend to her will. But the way Bryan wrote it, it is downright petrifying. Tommy and Esmeralda, each with their own powers, were a great addition to the story, but Ashleigh and Jenny were undoubtedly the stars.
With the introduction of Alexander, hence the title of the third book, Alexander Death, things just got so much more intense towards the end. I loved the parts where Jenny had dreams about one of her previous lives in the Roman era. That was a nice touch to the story. I enjoyed this book so much I stayed up the whole night reading until I had finished it at dawn. Tommy Nightmare can be read as a stand-alone, but it will make you curious enough to read the first book to find out what happened between Jenny, Ashleigh and Seth; and also to get to know these three characters more.
Dec 08, Marisa rated it really liked it Shelves: Unlike Jenny, Tommy embraces his power creating a fantastic villain. I still hated him though! In an interesting tip to realism, the events from the previous book are not forgotten. Instead, Jenny is dealing with the fallout from the previous book while the town is under investigation. This causes Jenny to be more withdrawn from everyone, including Seth, creating new trials for both of them to overcome. At fear of revealing too much, between the recent events and flashbacks, this is a fantastic sequel that will have you wanting to read the next in the series!

Jan 05, Johi rated it it was amazing Shelves: I wanted to give Tommy Nightmare only 4 stars, but I usually try to star my reviews based on what I felt as I read them, and this one is just as hard to put down as Jenny Pox. It's not as good IMHO because Jenny had that certain Mean Girls elements, like the skinny, creepy, abused girl stealing her perfect, big-breasted archenemy's boyfriend. In Tommy , I feel like most of that cute, YA romance part is lost.
And in return, we get flashbacks and more flashbacks, that while interesting, they start I wanted to give Tommy Nightmare only 4 stars, but I usually try to star my reviews based on what I felt as I read them, and this one is just as hard to put down as Jenny Pox. And in return, we get flashbacks and more flashbacks, that while interesting, they start getting annoying; also many different POVs, which I felt slowed down the pace of the story. However, the story itself, the new characters, and the new discoveries are still quite able to get you hooked.
And it's got the same wonderful dark humor that J. Bryan gave us in Jenny , with Darcy possessed giving some of my favorite speeches. So yes, it's got some things that weren't perfect, but while I read it all I could think was to get going and figure out what happens next. It's another great read and provided me many hours of entertainment. Aug 21, Alexia Purdy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Freaking amazing once more! Bryan knows how to write a paranormal story with gruesome realism and twists that makes me want to keep reading on and on and on. With the introduction of Tommy, a terrifying paranormal who's power I would never want to experience, this book continues the story of Jenny Morton, who has her own deadly powers.
Discovering she's not the only one out there is starting to make life difficult, especially since Seth, her boyfriend with supernatural powers of his own, wa Freaking amazing once more! Discovering she's not the only one out there is starting to make life difficult, especially since Seth, her boyfriend with supernatural powers of his own, wants to go to college in a bigger city. She doesn't want to follow, and someone else wants her out of the picture for good. Jenny's story continues to intrigue me. Her down to earthiness is refreshing, but her powers are only just beginning to surface. Will she be able to control herself in the face of adversity?
The introduction of new characters was awesome. Can't wait to see what is in store with more chaos to come for sure. Personally, I went from being unsure as to how Mr. Bryan was going to turn his amazing, what I considered to be a stand-alone, book into a series, but I'll tell you something.
My full review will be up on soon! Dec 19, Stefanie rated it really liked it. This series is so excellent! Tommy Nightmare picks up where Jenny Pox left off and introduces a new character with a new "power". This series has a mix of everything and I think a lot of people will enjoy it.
I highly recommend this series for anyone who wants to read something original and gripping. Feb 22, Deb rated it liked it Shelves: I definitely like book 2 better, but am still interested in the series. I hope to start book 3 sooner than later. In trying to decide what to say - there isn't much I can say without spoilers Giving it a shot anyway: This one picks up with a little boy in foster care, whose fellow foster-kids call 'Tommy Nightmare'.

Really, the situation they are in is a nightmare, but Tommy causes deep fear in people. Not just fear - but their darkest nightmares. One night, I definitely like book 2 better, but am still interested in the series. One night, after meeting a little girl named Esmerelda who can get information from the dead, is able to escape his own nightmare - his foster father.
Tommy Fast forward several years, and while in prison he see's the interview Ashley Goodling gave on TV and knows he must get to her immediately. Back in Fallen Oak, South Carolina, the CDC has been called in to determine the cause of death of so many people - and to locate its source. The entire community is quarantined and all residents are required to report in to give hair and blood samples.
Jenny and Seth remain together, mostly at her house, to avoid everyone else Aug 13, Gbolahan rated it liked it. Yeah, so the title was rather misleading. This book is NOT about Tommy. It simply continued Jenny's story, delved into some over-long Greek mutant flashbacks, slapped on some new character and strange unconvincing opposites, plastered on some new powers cos they're spirits in some void fighting some endless war So, why the heck do I feel like reading part 3?
Must be cos part one started so well, an I'm hoping against hope there Yeah, so the title was rather misleading. Must be cos part one started so well, an I'm hoping against hope there will be a good conclusion to all of this. I like how Seth nor Tommy is Superman though. The Homeland Security and CDC angles seemed rushed to me, but, still cool as the author put them down. Grounds the paranormal ish in some form of of reality. Mar 07, Purr More rated it really liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
To view it, click here. A super follow-up to Jenny Pox! It is going to be really hard to discuss this book without spoilers for the first book or this one. The story picks up shortly after the events of the first book and includes a story thread of government intervention to explain and cover up what happened in the first book.
And of course, there is one determined epidemiologist who wants to get to the bottom of it. The beginning of Tommy Nightmare felt a little slower than Jenny Pox, but starts out in a similar way--looking at his past. We see what Tommy's childhood was like living with an emotionally and physically abusive foster family. An unfortunate event involving his power, and an unexpected opportunity, as a child propels him to escape his horrible living environment.
As a child, Tommy starts out as decent kid in a bad situation who seems fearful of his power. As we get to know him as an older, street-smart teen, he is in prison and doesn't hesitate to use his power to get what he wants. When he sees Ashleigh on TV, he recognizes her as someone significant to him and is compelled to find her. And she is just as devious as before. This time she seems more interested in revenge than a political agenda. This is a series book that doesn't use a new pair of main characters and a different story line like many series do.
It is more of a continuation of the first book so we have all the main characters from the first book as prominent characters in this book as well, plus a couple of new introductions. In fact, even though Tommy is the title character and we see him a lot in the beginning, he seems to fade into the background a bit while Jenny, Seth, and yes, even Ashleigh, eventually seem to take over the story as the book progresses. Tommy's power is to instill fear with his touch. He is supposed to have the opposite power to Ashleigh so I had expected his power to be the ability to instill hate.
I guess opposite powers aren't always direct opposites. And in fact, we learn briefly that there are different types of power pairs including complementary and cross powers. When Tommy learns what happened to Ashleigh, it puts Jenny and Seth in his crosshairs. Not only do Jenny and Seth have to worry about the government investigation, but now there is someone else "like them" out there and he seems to have a grudge against them. Esmeralda and Alexander are two additional supernaturals in this story not sure what they are even supposed to be called.
Esmeralda can listen to the dead while Alexander can animate the dead. Esmeralda is supposed to be Alexander's opposite, but again, it doesn't seem like an opposite power to me. This pair of powers seems more complementary than opposite.
I guess I don't have a handle on this power thing yet. I love the way JL has intertwined all the characters and their powers in past and current lives. He keeps peeling away the layers to reveal more and more of how these characters and their powers relate to each other. We get to peek into Jenny's past lives; showing us some of the past lives of the others as well, and we get a better sense of what they are.
If you felt the ending of the first book was unexpected and needed more explanation, this book should help to give you a little more insight. However, it is a slow reveal throughout the story and I don't feel like we have really discovered all there is to know about them. The character I want to know more about is Alexander. I find him to be very intriguing and I am eager to find out more about him. JL has given us another great story that sucks you right in. Though I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it didn't absorb me quite as much as the first book, but it is still a great follow-up to Jenny Pox.
I think the writing is even a little tighter. It does end with a significant cliffhanger that leaves several story threads hanging and there is also an unexpected twist that has left me with tons of questions that hopefully will be addressed in the next book, which is expected to come out Fall of A deal of most awesomeness: I am having a hard time rating this book and keep flip-flopping between 4 and 5 stars. Damn my decision not to do half stars! Okay, here we go I was sucked in but no slurping noises this time ; Rating: Just for readers' reference -- like the first book there is a bit of sexual content.

Fallen oak is now being inspected because Jenny killed people with her decease. Alexander feels like he has to somehow contact her so he finds someone from his childhood and he accidentally gets Ashley into her body. Now Ashley is manipulating Alexander into getting rid of Jenny. Mar 18, Terralyn rated it really liked it. I really enjoy the historical references and terminology associated with them in this book. I always love a good reason to look up a new word or research the history involved in it.
This book had more depth than the first. The characters seemed much less one dimensional. I will definitely continue on to the third. Aug 08, Victoria Zigler rated it really liked it. This was a great continuation of the series, and I love how the plot and characters are developing. Like with the first book, I really enjoyed it, but didn't find it totally amazing. The ending was a bit too sudden for my liking though.
Aug 06, Y. Greene rated it it was amazing. Another great bit of nasty from Ashleigh, even dead that girl just can't let the evil quit. Jun 04, Jess rated it liked it Shelves: It has been almost a year since I read the awesome first novel of the Paranormals series, "Jenny Pox. I put it on hold for awhile, but I'm glad I've finally gotten around to "Tommy Nightmare. In the first novel, we were introduced to Jenny Morton, a teenage girl who has the power to give people a horrible disease just by touching them.
Her boyfriend Seth has the opposite power--healing--which balances them out and allows them to touch each other safely. The villain was Ashleigh Goodling, a horrific and nasty young woman who has the power to make people love her with just one touch, who used her powers to further conservative propaganda, literally just because she could.
If you though Ashleigh was dead, think again. She's back, and she's the best part of this book. In this next installment, we meet three new characters. Tommy is Ashleigh's opposite--he can instill fear in people. But he's no match for a character like Ashleigh. He's passive where she's dominant, dim where she's sharp.
He's also a totally skeevy potential rapist who has been in and out of prison since childhood. He realizes he's Ashleigh's opposite so he follows her call to revive her, and to help, he calls for the attention of Esmeralda, a girl who can listen to the memories of the dead. She has potential to be a great character, and she could use her gift for good. But the poor girl is used as Tommy and Ashleigh's tool to resurrect Ashleigh in another's person's body, that person being Darcy Metcalf, a pregnant girl from the poor side of town who used to be Ashleigh's best friend Ashleigh, in fine form, treats her body horrifically, ex.
I like that these books take risks. Jenny starts seeing glimpses of her past lives and sees that maybe Seth isn't the paranormal person she's meant to be with, which opens up a lot of room for many more books and plot-lines. The mythology sets a pretty high goal for these books, but I can see an author like Bryan handling such themes. My main problem with this book was that it was very rushed.

In "Jenny Pox," we spent much of the book just getting to know Jenny and her way of life and reaching deep into Ashleigh's psyche. Bryan realizes that a good villain needs to be multi-faceted, and Ashleigh delivers in spades. We don't see one touch of tenderness in her but we do see ambition, clarity, cleverness, and strength. My only disappointment with this book was Jenny's relationship with her father. It's sad, because I feel like much more could have been done with that bond. I was also surprised how small of a roll that Tommy actually played in the book.
The beginning opens up with him and he is the start of a huge chain of events, but he isn't the main storyline. This isn't noted as bad thing about the book, just simply an observation. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as J. Bryan is definitely not afraid to put his characters through hell and back all for our pleasure and reading excitement.
