THOSE THAT PURSUE US YET by Kyla Lee Ward
Parisian psychologist Madeline Diomande has known her share of peculiar and demanding clients. But Wander Paxton is something more. Wander has lived in seven countries and speaks four languages, and claims a dreamlife even more exotic. There, an entity she equates with Phobetor, the Roman god of nightmares, pursues her through a landscape of archetype and wild fantasy.
As her efforts to help Wander draw them closer together, Madeline's own old nightmares resurface. But strange things are happening in Paris. As the incidence of night terrors in children reaches plague proportions, adults become violent and suicidal. By the time she realises the truth of Phobetor's connection to her patient, it may be too late to save anyone.

"A glorious gothic maelstrom of bondage and discipline, of deep psychology and dream logic, of present day Paris and ancient malevolence. Those That Pursue Us Yet is a heart-pounding nightmare, a lucid dreamscape of cosmic terrors that bleed from the page into the waking world."
–Joseph Ashley-Smith, Shirley Jackson Award-winning author of The Measure of Sorrow.
