I have to be honest, I thought the author of this book was THE Stephen King but then realized as I was about a quarter through the book that the author is a completely different person. 

The story started out strong and although not that scary, it had its moments. There was so much potential and I was so looking forward to knowing the reasons for the dreams. However, the ending wasn't what I imagine or perhaps wanted but still, the book is the perfect read for those who don't want to commit to longer novels.

**Thanks to NetGalley for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.**

Great little short story! Creepy vibes through out the story! Makes me glad that I cannot lucid dream!

This book felt like a scam both by the author’s name, Stephen B. King, and the tile. Of Thirteen Past Midnight which is awfully close to the real Stephen King’s book,  Four Past Midnight. Hard pass on this one.

Oh what an utter failure. This book was all over the place, totally unrealistic and with humor thrown in where it didn't belong. I was really  disappointed because the synopsis seemed so promising. Sorry to leave such a negative review but...no

This is a very quick and creepy read. Since it is a short story I don't want to go in too much detail as to not give anything away. I read this book in one sitting, under an hour and found it very engaging and entertaining.

What a wonderfully written short story! I often find short stories are I’ll developed and while this one was a tad choppy at times it worked well. It was the perfect read for a busy morning as I finished and still felt accomplished. Yes it lacked a lot of depth but that’s to be expected with it being so short. I’d definitely pick up a longer novel by this author in the future

Thirteen Past Midnight is an interesting, multi-faceted  view of the mystery behind dreams, from the point of view of a young architect who suddenly begins having a terrifying recurring dream involving a gray cat.  In an attempt to be rid of the dreams he explores astral travel, lucid dreaming and even the occult.  Do our dreams bring us messages and warnings that, during our waking hours, we’re too distracted to receive?  I believe so.  
One may find this short story repetitive, but that’s hard to avoid when you’re writing about a recurring dream.  Give it a chance though.  The dream takes various turns each night, and you get a terrific payoff with the ending.  I recommend this read for it’s many ingredients:  nightmares,  whimsy,  creepiness, a chuckle here and there, an evil gray tabby and even a cowboy!   Tuck yourself in for a strange bedtime story.  #netgalley ThirteenPastMidnight
