Publisher: Four Eyed Owl
Goodreads Synopsis: “”It’s night. Always night. Dreams guard against the evil forged by nightmares. Infinite shooting stars illuminate a moonless sky. A city stands alone, surrounded by a darkened field. On its fringes, a man watches one star separate from the masses and fall. What survives the crash will unveil a secret centuries long hidden.”
Molly hasn’t slept well since the night of her twenty-fourth birthday. Being struck by lightning might have something to do with it, but then again, her chicken did look a little undercooked at dinner. Whatever the culprit, her life quickly catapults from mundane to insane as, night after night, Molly is transported through her once dreamless sleep to a mysterious land illuminated by shooting stars.
There she meets the captivating but frustrating Dev, and together they discover Molly possesses a power coveted by his people—the ability to conjure almost anything she desires into existence. Seduced by the possibilities of this gift, Molly shifts her attention from waking life toward the man, the magic, and the world found in her dreams.
But Molly must ask herself—does something truly exist if you only see it when you close your eyes?
Faced with the threat of losing everything—her job, best friend, boyfriend, and most importantly, that little thing called her sanity—Molly will learn just how far she’ll go to uncover what is real and what is merely a figment of her imagination..“
MY RATING: 4.5 Starts
* The author of this book sent me this paperback copy in exchange for an honest review, so don’t expect less than that, I will always give my honest opinion, like it or not *
I don’t really know how to start this review, but I can tell you that it was really great and I really enjoyed reading it ! The story by itself was really interesting, I really liked the plot, I liked the concepts of this book, I pretty much liked everything about it !
One of the main reasons why I liked this book so much is the fact that “dreams” are involved in it, as you can probably guess by the title, and that’s a really interesting subject, that’s something I really like. This book is about a Dreamer, which is amazing because if you think that would be awesome if we could all be Dreamers (sometimes, because other times it would just suck), BUT if I was a Dreamer there was a possibility I would meet Dev, and that would be amazing ok? so don’t try to kill my dreams here…
Talking about the characters, since I have already mentioned Dev let’s just start with him. Dev is one of the main characters of this book, he’s really cocky sometimes to be honest, I mean, not cocky like in arrogant but cocky like in “he’s so full of himself” and to be honest with you he kind of have some reasons to be like that, he’s kind of… a really great character I’d say. Then, we have Molly, the actual main character, she’s The Dreamer as you can probably imagine, and, as in every great fantasy novel Molly and Dev have a relationship, a kind of complicated relationship that always makes a book better than it already is.
Now, answering to the question you are probably making right now: “is this book a NA or a YA genre?” – sooo, yes. The main character of this book started having her dreams when she was 24 years old, so that’s not being a young adult right ? BUT I really don’t want to consider this book a NA either because I just don’t see it like that, which means that if you are looking at their ages then this is a NA book, but, if just like me, you are looking at the type of writting, the amazing writting style of E.J. Mellow THEN, it is a YA novel. YOU DECIDE.
I am recommending this book to everyone. I still have the other two books to read and I will do it really soon !
