Hey ya’ll, this post is up late, and I apologize! I legit fell asleep last night before I could schedule it, so better late than never. *Throws pretty covers to appease the masses* Enjoy!
I thought it was time for another Author Spotlight, since it’s been a hot minute since I’ve done one. A few years ago, I stumbled upon The Dreamer on someone’s Instagram feed. The cover is what drew me in, and I think you can see why. It’s stunning, and while it’s pretty on a screen, it’s ever more gorgeous in person. I think I might have done a cursory glance at the synopsis, but I pretty much bought it for the cover alone.
I’m kind of bummed that I read this book prior to consistently writing reviews, so I only have my Goodread’s rating to go by – 4 stars – but I honestly don’t remember specifics. Though, my friend Mo over on MorrBooks has a lovely review posted to Goodreads. I read through her review, and more of the book came back to me. She’s given me permission to share her review here, so if you’re interested, you can click – here – to see a spoiler free review of the first book
I’ve been thinking about picking this series up again, the second book keeps staring at me from my shelf, and I may just have to pick it up.
I definitely recommend checking out this series, and if you do, let me know!
Without further ado, here are the books in the Dreamland Series!
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.
The Dreamcatcher (Dreamland #1.5)
He captured hearts and now he’s captured the spotlight.
Experience The Dreamcatcher, a novella comprised of scenes from The Dreamer told from Dev’s point of view, as well as seven extra scenes that did not appear in book one!
*This is a companion piece to The Dreamland Series and is to be read after The Dreamer for story consistency and spoilers.*
Molly finally uncovers the truth about the strange dreams that plagued her sanity for weeks. Now destined to accept a clandestine role, Molly must find the strength and courage buried deep to push forward and succeed.
With the help of Dev, the roguish blue-eyed man of her dreams—whose dark past resurfaces to haunt him—Molly prepares to test the limits of her newly awakened powers and set right a world on the edge of being consumed by nightmares.
But when an unknown shadow stalks her every step and a shocking revelation about her ancestry comes to light, Molly may find herself forced to make a decision that could leave her alone in the dark and standing on the wrong side of a divide.
I searched for you in the stars tonight.
But I found none
that burned as bright as you.
—Part of a letter from Dev to Molly
With the loss of Terra’s greatest weapon, the war against darkness escalates rapidly, and time is on no one’s side. While Dev struggles to keep his home and hope alive, Molly and Rae find themselves forced to confront a desperately kept secret and quickly learn that a life-altering sacrifice is the asking price to restore order.
Nightmares, betrayal, the fate of two worlds, and one man’s hunger for vengeance lead Molly down a twisted and dark path she fears she might never come back from. Cornered into making a heart-wrenching decision, Molly teeters between deliverance and damnation. Who is worth saving most—a nation or the one she loves?
I think…I think that I’m going to be finishing this series now. If you see reviews for these books in the coming months, you’ll know I gave into temptations and read them.
