If you like Doctor Sleep

by Stephen King (Sequel to The Shining)
Years ago, the Overlook Hotel almost took little Danny Torrance's life as his paranormal gift known as "the shining" opened up a sinister supernatural portal that took his father, Jack Torrance's life. Danny - who now goes by Dan - has been drifting aimlessly most of his life, dealing with his father's curse of alcoholism. Eventually, Dan finds some order to his life by working in a local hospice. Here, he earns the nickname "Doctor Sleep" by using his special ability to calm the dying and prepare them for the afterlife. But when he meets 12-year-old Abra Stone, who contains a powerful manifestation of the shining, Dan finds himself scrambling to save her from the hands of a murderous tribe called the True Knot, who seeks out children with the shining to feed off of them. In order to do this, he must face the demons of his past, including the ruins of the infamous Overlook Hotel.
