Bradley Carlisle has a dark past. He's made more than his fair share of mistakes, and he wants to repent. So, when he meets former doctor Darcy Adair, who is still reeling over the death of a good friend, he jumps at the chance to show off his skills by doing the impossible: raising the dead without consequence. However, things don't go quite as planned, and Bradley soon regrets his decision when the lives of everyone he cares about are ruined by a demon he only half-unwittingly raised with the spirit of Darcy's friend…

Don't Wake Me Up Just Yet

Dr. Darcy Adair thought he was content with his life. After all, he was living with his beloved father and following in his footsteps, just like he'd always dreamed. But then, by chance, he reluctantly takes an insomniac patient by the name of Ansel Hunnisett. Despite Ansel's hatred of doctors and Darcy's nervousness to take a patient with such a distaste for people in his profession, the two immediately click, and next thing the doctor knows, he's sharing an apartment with the man.

On Thanksgiving, two months after moving in with Ansel, Darcy goes to visit his father. Little does he realize that this will be the last time he will see the man alive, as the following day, he receives news of his father's suicide. Devastated, Darcy refuses to believe that his father's demise is anything but a murder, and he begins to wonder if he isn't crazy to believe so when he learns about the lengths to which Ansel's former best friend might go to in order to get him back…

A story of unconditional, platonic love between two best friends who meet by a fluke, and the lengths to which they will go just to keep each other around, including taking chances by summoning a demon in a risky resurrection ritual.
