Casual readers beware! Between Two Minds: Awakening will get into your head!
As a paraplegic, Ryan has always dreamed of walking. He saved a small fortune to undergo a common procedure in his time to transfer his mind into a physically fit host body. Afterwards, his obsession with walking is immediately overshadowed by a strange and frightening side effect unraveling the reality he once knew.
A cleverly written, fast-paced science fiction thriller reminiscent of Aldous Huxley, William Gibson, Philip K. Dick, and Michael Crichton.
This gripping psychological thriller takes the reader on an adventure far beyond the potential consequences of transferring one’s consciousness to a new body. The interweaving story line will have the reader second guessing what is real and what is dream, and prove that knowing the truth can be the difference between life and death.

As I was reading D.C.'s first book, it reminded me of the film Upgrade, with its genre and action (there is a little bit of gory violence at the start), but it soon switches gears to focus on the psychological and emotional aspects of the procedure.
As the story ramps up, Ryan, unfortunately, experiences side effects and there probably should've been a disclaimer on the operation that said: "Results may vary."
Fans of Altered Carbon may like this book. For me, it got me thinking a lot about the memory narrative, with stories like Inception, Last Year at Marienbad, or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
