    1. Jenny has a deadly touch. It's not a pretty death either. It consists of boils, puss, and all that good stuff. Now we meet Tommy - his touch induces nightmares. Your worst nightmares. So in other words, the touch of fear. Fear, considered human's strongest and oldest emotion, is an incredibly fascinating notion especially when used as a tool, so I knew I was in for a good time!We meet Tommy right away. We get the story of his heartbreaking past, and how his life is about to intertwine with Jenny [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this second book in the Jenny Pox series. The concept is so original. It's like a history-contemporary-horror-YA-paranormal-thriller-romance. While I loved Jenny Pox, I think this book is even stronger. The transitions between the different characters POV's are effortless in this one. Looking forward to the next book in the series already!

    3. After reading Jenny Pox, I just had to check out Tommy Nightmare. Initially I thought this story would be following Tommy with, hopefully, some side chapters to update me on Jenny and Seth's path. It started out that way, and I was instantly hooked to Tommy's story. He starts out as a child in foster care under the guardianship of a horrible, deeply religious man who abuses the children, and even his wife. The story then took multiple side-roads, introducing new characters ranging from CDC inves [...]

    4. After finishing Jenny Pox, I was hooked and needed to read the next installment in this very unique and compelling series. I would also love to say right from the beginning that I loved this one even more than the first book.In the first pages we get introduced to a new character Tommy who has the gift/curse of giving people nightmares and fear when he touches them. We first see how Tommy's life was when he was 12 and lived with a foster family. I had tears in my eyes already after the first fe [...]

    5. I can't say this wasn't as good as Jenny Pox, but it definitely wasn't as engaging. For me, anyway. It's interesting to note, however, that I'm nearly halfway through the third and these books really flow pretty seamlessly from one to the next. I love the refreshing effect of contemporary YA written by a man. That may sound sexist and anti-feminist, but I really do admire the way men write, especially their characterization. Most of the YA I read by female authors is so contrived and one-track, [...]

    6. **WARNING: Review contains minor spoilers for the first book in the series, Jenny Pox.**The first book in the Paranormals series, Jenny Pox, was one of my favorite reads of 2011. It was something completely original and fresh. I became completely absorbed in the world that J.L. Bryan had created and was extremely impressed with his writing style and plotting. Tommy Nightmare is a very worthy sequel to Jenny Pox. It continues with the terrifying, thought-provoking writing and complex worldbuildin [...]

    7. Review originally posted at: supernaturalsnarkTommy Nightmare returns us to a world that causes anxiety and dread to curl up and make themselves at home in our guts, any brief moment of happiness overshadowed by a tangible sense of unease as we know Mr. Bryan has no qualms with putting his characters through physical and emotional turmoil. We plunge forward, blowing through pages held tightly with knuckles gone white from strain, fearing what's in store next might just be worse for Jenny than wh [...]

    8. A few months ago I read and reviewed Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan and I thought it was great. So when Mr Bryan asked me if I’d like to do a review for the second book in the series, Tommy Nightmare, I jumped at the chance! I think I actually nearly bit his hand off in my rush to grab myself a copy. I hope I didn’t leave any teeth marks! *grins*You know how it is when you really enjoyed the first book in a series and when you read the second it can sometimes be a bit of a let-down? You’ve experi [...]

    9. Read this review at Smash Attack Reads! smashattackreads/2011/*SPOILERS FOR PREVIOUS BOOK. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.* Smashtastic Synopsis: Tommy Nightmare opens up with 12 year old Tommy in foster care. We learn that life is not good for Tommy. He is beaten by his religious wackadoo foster father and none of his foster brothers want anything to do with him because of the extreme fear he makes them all feel. A terrible incident occurs and Tommy finds a way out of his hellish home. Tommy grows up and [...]

    10. If you’ve read the first book, Jenny Pox, you’ll love Tommy Nightmare. Bryan brings back key characters from the first book and adds to the mix a handful of exciting new characters with their own unique talents to amp up the suspense.Although Tommy Nightmare doesn’t pick up at the exact point where Jenny Pox left off, it does continue the story of what happened at Fallen Oak after Jenny murdered nearly half the town’s people. It was great to meet up again with Jenny and Seth and in a way [...]

    11. In this fantastic sequel to “Jenny Pox” we meet Tommy whose touch creates fear the same way that Jenny’s induces the plague. Specifically, Tommy’s touch shows your worst nightmares that reduce most people he interacts with to a pile of mush. Unlike Jenny, Tommy embraces his power creating a fantastic villain. Tommy easily could have been portrayed as a completely unfeeling, harsh character, but instead we learn his heartbreaking past and how/why it will intertwine with Jenny’s. I still [...]

    12. I wanted to give Tommy Nightmare only 4 stars, but I usually try to star my reviews based on what I felt as I read them, and this one is just as hard to put down as Jenny Pox. It's not as good IMHO because Jenny had that certain Mean Girls elements, like the skinny, creepy, abused girl stealing her perfect, big-breasted archenemy's boyfriend. In Tommy, I feel like most of that cute, YA romance part is lost. And in return, we get flashbacks and more flashbacks, that while interesting, they start [...]

    13. Freaking amazing once more! J.L. Bryan knows how to write a paranormal story with gruesome realism and twists that makes me want to keep reading on and on and on. With the introduction of Tommy, a terrifying paranormal who's power I would never want to experience, this book continues the story of Jenny Morton, who has her own deadly powers. Discovering she's not the only one out there is starting to make life difficult, especially since Seth, her boyfriend with supernatural powers of his own, wa [...]

    14. I know we've made no secret of our love for JL Bryan and his book, Jenny Pox, here at the Bookworms, but I can say, without a doubt, that this sequel was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!! Personally, I went from being unsure as to how Mr. Bryan was going to turn his amazing, what I considered to be a stand-alone, book into a series, but I'll tell you something. Mr. Bryan is CLEARLY smarter than I am because not only did he live up to the wonderment that was Jenny Pox, he truly surpassed it.My full review w [...]

    15. This series is so excellent! Tommy Nightmare picks up where Jenny Pox left off and introduces a new character with a new "power".This series has a mix of everything and I think a lot of people will enjoy it. I highly recommend this series for anyone who wants to read something original and gripping. *There are zombies in this for all you zombie folk too!

    16. I definitely like book 2 better, but am still interested in the series. I hope to start book 3 sooner than later.In trying to decide what to say - there isn't much I can say without spoilersd there is a lot I want to write! Giving it a shot anyway: This one picks up with a little boy in foster care, whose fellow foster-kids call 'Tommy Nightmare'. Really, the situation they are in is a nightmare, but Tommy causes deep fear in people. Not just fear - but their darkest nightmares. One night, after [...]

    17. This could have been a solid 5 star book. But sadly I must deduct a sugar for the writing, because it would be unfair of me not to, and it would also show how incredibly biased I am towards these characters and the general idea of this story. So even though it pains me greatly, I have to reduce the rating to 4 stars, because the worrying really is lacking. (I really don't recall the writing being this bad in the first book, But perhaps my fondness for this series ha memory playing tricks on me.) [...]

    18. Yeah, so the title was rather misleading. This book is NOT about Tommy.It simply continued Jenny's story, delved into some over-long Greek mutant flashbacks, slapped on some new character and strange unconvincing opposites, plastered on some new powers (cos they're spirits in some void fighting some endless waror something) and made me get it for 2 dollars 99or somethingSo, why the heck do I feel like reading part 3?Must be cos part one started so well, an I'm hoping against hope there will be a [...]

    19. A super follow-up to Jenny Pox! It is going to be really hard to discuss this book without spoilers for the first book or this one. So be warneda few spoilers make sneak in. The story picks up shortly after the events of the first book and includes a story thread of government intervention to explain and cover up what happened in the first book. And of course, there is one determined epidemiologist who wants to get to the bottom of it.The beginning of Tommy Nightmare felt a little slower than Je [...]

    20. It has been almost a year since I read the awesome first novel of the Paranormals series, "Jenny Pox." I was surprised by the well-crafted horror, the maliciously wonderful villain, and the original story, and I couldn't wait to read the next one. I put it on hold for awhile, but I'm glad I've finally gotten around to "Tommy Nightmare."I just wish I could give it the same amount of praise as "Jenny Pox," despite the fact that we now have a guy who makes zombies, which is always a plus in my book [...]

    21. Once again JL Bryan has wrote an amazingly told story continuing Jenny Pox. I was instantly drawn into Tommy Nightmaretaken hostage and did not return to my regular brain until Tommy Nightmare was complete. Tommy -Nightmare- was given the name by the people closet to him. Although they did not love him. His foster parents and foster siblings gave him this name because. He literally would "Scare you to death" After some things take place. Tommy decides he has had enough. Leaving that life behind [...]

    22. an interesting bridge to the third book. leaves a lot of loose ends to keep you wanting more and see where things are going to end. here's to looking forward to what comes next the same time, I feel like it climaxed and the fizzled out to start building up to the next book.

    23. It had been quite some time since I read the first book in J. L. Bryan’s The Paranormals series but I *knew* I had to pick it up this month — the month for horror everything! — and read it again before I continued on with the series. The only thing I could remember was that there was plenty of WTFery going on — something that pretty much had me furrowing my brow for a good portion of the story.Naturally, I fell back in love with the story after a reread and immediately had to dive into t [...]

    24. In this second book of The Paranormals Trilogy, we meet Tommy. He is another person like Jenny, Seth, and Ashleigh. His touch brings about fear. He can kill or simply mess up a person's mind for a short period of time. Tommy is as pathetic as Jenny but he has a harder heart so he went straight into the villian column quick. As of the end of the last book, we find out a little about what Jenny, Seth, and Ashleigh are. It's just enough to start us with the understanding that they are not fully hum [...]

    25. Krisha’s ThoughtsBrief synopsis: Tommy Nightmare is book #2 in The Paranormals series by JL Bryan. Right from the start we are introduced to a young Tommy. We quickly understand that he has had a crappy childhood and also has powers like our three main characters from Jenny Pox. As you can tell by his name, he creates horrific nightmares just by his touch. It takes a chapter or two to find out where he falls in with the aftermath of the Fallen Oaks incident. From there, we see pov’s from bot [...]

    26. Jenny's touch infects. Seth's touch heals. Jenny's touch spreads love. And now we meet Tommy who's touch spreads fear. Growing up in the house of an abusive, cultist foster family, Tommy's life has been somewhat of a waking nightmare itself, so it seems only fitting that his touch spreads fear. One night, he tries to help his foster father's dad and accidentally give him a heart attack with his touch. Let's just say, his foster father was not very forgiving. Many years later, when we see Tommy a [...]

    27. I loved the first book in J.L. Bryan's The Paranormals Series, Jenny Pox. With a unique storyline and fabulous characters, most especially Jenny who is incredibly easy to like and empathise with, I was completely enthralled.With Tommy Nightmare, J.L. Bryan has taken a bunch of characters I loved, and hated, in the first book and put them back into the mix as well as introducing more characters into the story, increasing the paranormal aspect of the book and creating a more obvious connection bet [...]

    28. This review contains spoilers for book 1. Just so you know.I loved book 1 in this series. I thought it was dark and creepy and that it perfectly captured the casual alienation that people can unwittingly be subjected to. I'll admit that Jenny's let's call them 'issues' Jenny's issues made her alienation less casual and more of a necessity. It doesn't make it any easier for her to bear, however. Maybe it even makes it worse because she knows that she'll never have a normal life as long as her to [...]

    29. TOMMY NIGHTMARE is the second book in the JENNY POX series and proves to be a quicker, more action-packed read than the first installment. The "new villain," the nightmare-inducing Tommy, has a more empathetic background than did Ashley Goodling from the first book, and is painted in subtler tones.The action picks up logically where the first book left off, with Jenny "Mittens" Morton and boyfriend Seth dealing with the aftermath of the climactic conclusion of the first novel, in which Jenny rea [...]
