Not every dream is filled with hope or happiness. Sometimes it is far beyond a simple ‘bad dreams’. But what happens when the star of your nightmares, your dream guy turns out to be the love of your life. Does this mean nightmares are dreams coming true?
This was definitely an intriguing book to start off after my spree on romance reviews. The main story run along a thin line bordering dreams and reality. The fantasy element was dealt with right from the start of the first chapter, and it definitely kept me captivated enough to finish the book in one single day. The plot line is fast paced with complete justice done to mystical and fantastical elements which kept the setting alive for me.
The characters of Kalila Blake and Lydon v’al Endrian were given a promising start right from the beginning and each character has been beautifully detailed out as you leaf through the story. Introducing new characters hints of a promising success to future Dreamcaster series, which has actually excited me for more.
The elements of the story may have been mystical and fictional, however the story actually makes sense because of the simplicity of the language and a clear flow throughout the narrative. I had no complaints with the entirety of the book, however the cover image does not justify the title and the story of the book. It looks way too simple and detracts from the theme of dreams.
My opinion: This is definitely a better version of fantasy than what Twilight offered.
My rating: 4 out of 5
