OK, I'll admit it: I could not wait for this book to hit the streets, so I've been bugging Jacqueline about it, and finally two days ago I wrestled an ARC out of her hands. And I'm glad I did. Yippee!

It's a worthy, and action-packed, continuation to the story that started in Dreams of the Queen. Sucked me in like a raging wormhole from the start—of course being familiar with the characters from the first book—I hit the ground running and I almost couldn't put it down to stir my soup or visit the

Dreams of the Queen ended in such a way that I instantly picked up Nightmares of the Queen. I needed more of the world I’d fallen so in love with, I needed answers to what came next, and I needed another dose of the wonderful story I’d found myself so addicted to in the first book.

I was not disappointed by this second book.

In fact, if the truth is to be known, I enjoyed this second book even more than I enjoyed the first. Everything I loved about the first book was increased tenfold in this one.

Thank you Jacqueline Patricks for an engrossing story. I was not familiar with this series before Nightmares of the Queen, but I have to say, I am adding book 1 to my TBR list RIGHT NOW. This is a smart story for adults that respects your time. I loved it. You will too. If you like psychological thrills with your science fiction, pick this up. I have a new favorite author and she's an indie!

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a welcomed edition to this series. I loved the different concept of the inner-struggle with Cass and Ta'mat. It was a unique and different concept, and it was well written. It was also very entertaining. This book had good description and I could really visualize what was happening while I was reading. The end was classic with Lewis and Ta'mat. I couldn't stop laughing. Book 3 is going to be very amusing. This is a must read for all Sci-fi lovers.

Second in The Brajj series, Nightmares of the Queen continues the captivating story of a world ripped asunder, a world that never should have existed in the first place. The storyline bounces between Captain Lewis on Earth, and, Cass and Jeamon on the Brajj world. It has been two months, and Captain Lewis is not doing so well. He has been placed on administrative duty, and he's begun to hear the voices of the dead

The second installment in the Brajj series, we now know the mysteries surrounding the Brajj and Cass' relationship to them. The story starts off with Captain Lewis and his team returning through the wormhole back home, while Cass has decided to stay with Jeamon and try to save the Brajj.

This book was easy to read, and the writing consistent. The story was action packed, and the intensity from the first book continued throughout this one. We gain more insight on Ta'mat's mind and the things she

[Full disclosure: I requested and received a free ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.]

Many books deal with revolutions, the overthrow of evil regimes and such but very few deal with what happens after. Nightmares of the Queen most certainly does and it shows in excruciating detail that sometimes people are not ready for change, no matter how bad the previous regime was. And the thing is, when you fight for freedom that includes the freedom to refuse to follow the ideals of th
I would like to thank author Jacqueline Patricks for the opportunity to read this e-ARC. Although I received the ebook for free, that in no way impacts my review. I gave this book 3.5 stars, but as many places do not allow for ratings other than whole numbers, I am rounding up to 4 stars in those places for creativity, particularly in the ending.

WARNING!! If you've not read book one stop right here, as there are spoilers inherent to the review. I shall do my best to avoid giving any advance info
Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.

Holey Freakin Moley! When I read Jacqueline Patricks' Dreams of the Queen. l was floored but Nightmares takes it to an entire new level. Consider me brought to my knees!

What Ms. Patrick's has done us create a new legend. Parallel worlds, power hungry administrators, a live that defies physics and one insane wannabe goddess. This book has it all. This is NOT a stand alone book. You need to read Dreams of the Queen first. There is just too much going on. If you

When the author offered me a copy of this book for free in exchange for a review, I snapped it up. Dreams of the Queen was so interesting that I couldn't wait to start reading this one. My advise to anyone who read DOTQ a while ago, for me it was almost a year, is to re-read it before going into this one. There was so much happening in DOTQ that although I remembered the main story, I forgot some details and who every person was. This left me fumbling through several chapters until I had been re ...more

Five Super Nova stars for Nightmares of the Queen. This second book in the series is even better than the first.

It picks up shortly after the first book and Captain Lewis, Lars and Mathews are back on their earth. Or are they? Something is not quite right. Although they were only gone a week, ten years have passed on this planet earth. Events in the past have been altered or eliminated altogether.

The momentum builds with each passing chapter and instead of finding answers, the characters are le

Nightmares of the Queen, the second story in the Brajj Trilogy continues the tumultuous ride through space and time with the fate of two worlds hinging on the whims of a "goddess." This installment is darker and grittier with perhaps more emotional ups and downs than the first story. Be aware, one must read the first book to catch all the nuances of this story, preferably reading them back to back. The science in this Science Fiction Romance is excellen

OMG I love, love love, this series! These books seriously just puts a smile on my face. If you have any interest in Si-Fi, The Brajj series is a must read.

Nightmares of the Queen is the second installment of a planned trilogy. I find the series to be highly readable, engaging, humorous and down right good science fiction. Sometimes writers bog down the story with too much tek talk, this series seems to have the right balance of science an

"The author has woven a compelling plot masterfully with twists and turns that will keep readers glued to the book. The story is action packed and the developments of the characters are noteworthy as the story progresses. The author has created a world which is beyond our imagination.

I read the first book Dreams of the Queen that was great I read it in about two days couldn't put it down. It was full of action love I could really get into the different characters.

Now I have read this on Nightmares of the Queen this one is even better. It had a great story line, action and love. She created this character Ta Mat who is out of this world crazy. I read this one in two days. I can't wait until the next one. I am 53 years old and I really enjoyed this book.

Another good book in the series! This is the second book of the trilogy, and it has a lot going on right away. The after-effects of the first book can be seen right away, and there is quite a bit of jumping around as a result. This book focused on Ta'mat, rather than Cass in the first one, though Cass certainly made enough appearances to assert herself. Seeing inside Ta'mat's head was enlightening, though it does not make me feel much compassion for her because of all the stunts she pulled. Ther ...more

Some books have a little explanation at the beginning so that even if you hadn't read the previous book you'd still get he gist of the main story. This is not one of those books. It took me a lot to read it and I was a little confused at first since I hadn't read the first book.
There's suspense, fright, excitement; still, I feel sorry I couldn't enjoy the full experience.

“Nightmares of the Queen” is a book trying to be a military-suspense, ghost, alien-invasion and a twisted love square story all at once.
