Dream of the Serpent by Alan Ryker

This is the story of Cody Miller. He has his whole life ahead of him - engaged to the girl of his dreams, a dream job lined up and everything is going his way. Then it falls apart when he is burned in a horrific accident at work. Suddenly his whole life changes and things are not what they seem. What is the significance of the serpent he keeps seeing in his dreams?

This is one of those stories that makes you think. It starts off going one way and then goes in a completely different direction and you are left thinking 'Wait, what?', but not in a bad way as everything soon becomes clear. Cody wasn't a particularly likeable character, but I was still interested to see what happened to him. The pace went along at a fair clip and kept me page turning, and the ending was good but ultimately quite sad. I think this one will stay with me for a while to come.
