The stillbirth of Mackenzie's son destroyed her marriage. Grieving, Mac reluctantly heads for her childhood home to seek refuge with her mother, who constantly reminds her of life's dangers. Driving across Texas, Mac swerves to avoid hitting a deer... and winds up in a dead spot, a frightening place that lies between the worlds of the living and the dead. If they can control their imaginations, people can literally bring their dreams to life - but most are besieged by fears and nightmares which pursue them relentlessly.
Mackenzie's mother and husband haunt her, driving her to the brink of madness. Then she hears a child call for help and her maternal instincts kick into overdrive. Grant, Mac's ally in the dead spots, insists Johnny is a phantom, but the boy seems so real, so alive...
As the true horrors of the dead spots are slowly revealed, Mackenzie realizes that time is running out. But exits from the dead spots are nearly impossible to find, and defended by things almost beyond imagination.

Good concept for a story that is badly portrayed.
The protagonist acts like a weak, daft character until she magically stops that after 3/4 of the book. I love the concept for this story but it did not accurately and efficiently seem any percentage believable: That characters seemed generic. I couldn't follow along with the protagonist's feelings because she had a gigantic problem mourning her son for a majority of the book and wouldn't act logical until around 11 hours in the audiobook. This book also felt very unbalanced. Her first two days were dragged out in large proportions, but her four days after that were quickly and very vaguely written. The ending seemed rushed. I wouldn't listen to this book again if I had the choice.

Rhiannon Frater is not just another pretty face. The tales she weaves never leave me wanting. Dead spots was no exception. I'm a huge horror fan, have been since grade school. Listening to this audio book made me tuck my feet under the covers while I listened in bed at night and sent gleeful shivers down my spine even when listening during the daylight hours!
