Summary :

They were strangers...

A handful of people. From different backgrounds living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common—except fear.

They were victims...

Cold and stark, and unknown terror gripped their dreams and turned their days into living nightmares.

They were chosen...

And they could not escape. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them drawing them to the Tranquility Motel—where the terrifying truth was waiting...
