Product Description

The Awake in the Dark saga continues.

Bled White is book 2 in the epic 5 volume paranormal suspense series. New to the series? Get the first book here:

All Jeff Grobnagger wanted was to be left alone. The events of Fade to Black (Awake in the Dark #1) shifted his goal from a life of solitude to figuring out what the hell is happening to him ASAP, so he can, you know, get back to the solitude.

His journey takes yet another twist when a burned corpse sporting a League of Light robe turns up in a vacant lot. Working undercover to solve the murder reveals bigger and bigger clues about his seizures. Solve the murder, solve the seizures? Maybe. He meets new people and is shown new places on the other side. But who and what can he trust? Just as he realizes that someone close may be working against him, he gets blindsided by the biggest shock yet.

What readers are saying about Bled White:

"Altogether, Bled White is even more fun and heart-wrenching than Fade to Black. It builds exponentially on the previous book, and I can't wait to see what's going to happen with and to Jeffrey Grobnagger in the rest of the series." - eden Hudson, author of The Redneck Apocalypse Series

"Oh my God! This was one of the greatest friggin' books I've ever read! Seriously, I'm not just gushing. Totally cerebral, scary, and amazing." -Elizabeth Robbins

"Very difficult to put down!" - Michael J

Bled White is the second instalment of the Awake in the Dark series. Book 1 was clever, witty and laugh out loud funny.

Book 2 is just as good.

I love this guy. I love the crap out of this sugar addicted hero. Grobs is turning out to be one of my favourite fictional characters. He's just got something. A reclusive personality that comes to life. A fear of abandonment, and an apprehension to admit it.

He sees the world how we think about it in our daily running monologues.

It's frustrating how much much of myself I see in this guy. Tell me I'm not the only one...

On one page he's comparing his girlfriend to a chihuahua and on the next, he's listening the the isolating sound of a ticking clock while he eats peanut butter and a jar of pickles.

This guy just gets to you.

Grobs is still on his journey of trying to figure out who and what he is. Along the way, he develops a relationship with Louise, although it's strained from the beginning. He spends most of his time with the League of Light in an attempt to find his friend Glenn, possibly the only person he really trusts. (Or is he the only one I trust...I'm not sure...)

Vargus and McBain have nailed this character. His inner dialogue is pure genius.

With twists and suspense interweaving into gloriously emotional self doubt, this story is one you won't be able to put down.

So that's good.

I'm waiting with bated breath for book 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Bled White 8 June 2015
By Greenman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read Fade to Black and I wanted to see what happened to Jeff Grobnagger in the second book in this series. Jeff continues to have quite a few exciting paranormal adventures although I have never met a paranormal hero who spent do much time naked with his dingus hanging out....Jeff's word, not mine. Aside from the humor in this book, I really like the challenges that Jeff has to overcome to get to the end of this book. This series presents a very interesting and different view of our universe than one might expect. I am glad this series is 5 books because it will probably take that many books to make sense of this world Jeff Grobnagger no finds himself. I am anxious to read them all. I wonder how much of the Jeff we met in Fade to Black will be left.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 22 April 2015

This book was so full of thrills, belly laughs and maybe a few tears.

I was on the edge of my seat when I wasn't busy laughing at Grobnagger's internal and external dialogue.

This book was so exciting that my heart beat so rapidly with anxiety that I had to calm myself with a cup of Chamomile tea and to my suprise it worked. Honestly I thought Tim McBain and L.T. Vargus were full of b.s. when it came to the Chamomile tea, but really it worked! Keep serval cups on hand while you read this book. Trust me you'll need 'em.

Once you begin the rollercoaster ride that is Bled White you will be so engrossed by the novel that time will pass and you won't even notice. Time works differently in the world that is Bled White and it's a great way to get disconnected from the phone and work, and all of the other crap that comes along with life. Heck, this book is better than going to the movies or any of the garbage on the Boob-Tube.

Escape for a little while with Jeff Grobnagger. I promise you will be a better human for it. Remember books matter and can change your life. Get out and read Bled White or you will regret it later. That's just plain fact, bro.
4.0 out of 5 stars Grobnagger continues to be introspective, vulnerable & hilarious. I look forward to the next book. 17 April 2016

Bled White, Awake in the Dark #2 by Tim McBain & L.T. Vargas published by Smarmy Press is the second book in the series.

I would strongly suggest reading Fade to Black (Awake in the Dark Book 1) first. However, Bled White with some exceptions can be read as a stand alone story.

"The walls are pale around me like sickly skin never touched by the sun. It's not just the walls though. The floor, the bars, the blanket, the ceiling: everything is bled white like the life has been sucked out while I was away. I rub my eyes, but the drained look remains."

Grobnagger continues to deliver his laugh out loud dialogue. "He has one of those crazy laughs that sound louder on the inhale than the exhale. It has a wheezy quality to it.

I don't think I've ever heard an old person laugh like this. He looks like a maniac. I mean, I know laughter is supposed to be the best medicine, but Randy is flirting with an overdose at this point."

It is riveting. I gave it four stars because it was less intriguing than Book #1. The paranormal aspects of the League of Light in opposition to Jeff Grobnagger, were over the top.

Grobnagger continues to be introspective, vulnerable & hilarious. I look forward to the next book.

Bled White is book 2 in the series and you really, really should read book 1 before reading or you will be completely lost on what is going on/happening. Jeff Grobnagger is one of those guys that you could completely overlook in a crowded room, but you shouldn't. There is more going on with him than is visible with the naked eye. "That all of your identity, your imagination and thoughts and dreams, that spark divine madness that makes each of us unique...". In book 1 he had seizures that took him to another place. In book 2, the white place bleeds into his subconsciousness and through the modified cult that he has joined, he experiences things on a whole new level. "These experiences, they crept into my eyes and seeped into my pores and etched themselves into the wiring of my brain. They became a part of me and the whole was changed." The rituals that Jeff goes through to obtain some fleeting moment of time expand into this whole new religion. I just don't think he realized where it is taking him. "And I think maybe I accidentally resurrected." Heavy stuff and confusing. It is thought provoking and wondrous and you experience it step by step along with Grobnagger. Keep reading to find out what happens next in this f'ed up journey of enlightenment. Enjoy!

3.5 out of 5 stars.

I liked this book, but it was a bit slower than the first one. I like where the storyline is going and how the ending makes you want to keep reading the series. Jeff sure gets himself into some predicaments. I will continues reading the series to find out what else he can get into.
