If you read Tortured Dreams and thought it sucked, I recommend trying Elysium Dreams. Not only does Elysium not seem like the sequel to Tortured, but I have been told they seem like completely different authors. And right now, trying Elysium Dreams will cost you nothing. It’s free across most sites (still having issues with some; like Amazon.co.uk), but Amazon.com, B&N, Google Play, Smashwords, iTunes, Kobo, Oyster, and wherever else I distribute books is carrying it for free!
In my personal opinion, Elysium is the better book. I went in a completely different direction than Tortured and it was a serious improvement.
Also, Amazon seems to have already started pre-orders for Mutilated Dreams. No one else has and I’m working on it, since Amazon jumped the gun. But Kindle users can start their preorders!
Oh and uh, the next Cain book has a title: Fortified Dreams
