Dreamwalker - Russell James
Dreamwalker - James Russell Lowell

*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Pete has the ability to live both in the real world and also his dreamworld, Twin Moon City. At the latter he has amazing adventures with a mystery blonde but doesn't realise the powers he possesses as a dreamwalker in this realm. Fate draws him to Atlantic City where St Croix, a voodoo demon possessed drug lord, is looking to destroy him both in the real world and in Twin Moon City.

This one was a really enjoyable read, the premise and world building were unique and I was pretty hooked from the first few chapters. Pete is a very likeable main character and is well supported by an array of nicely fleshed out minor characters who all add something to the story. St Croix is a nasty piece of work and his actions are chilling in how vicious he will be to get what he wants.

The pacing is fairly fast and the writing engaging enough that it was hard to put down at times. The only small niggles I had with this was the fact that some things were tied up too neatly at the end. Whilst I thought some elements of the story were taken care of too easily towards the end I do give the author major props for not copping out to a happily ever after ending.

I would recommend this and will look at some other work by the author.

Sixteen
Sixteen - Jen Estes

Fifteen, the first book in the Dreamwalker Diaries, gave Ash a view of the future. Sixteen, the long awaited second book, will give her a view of the past. It's been six months, but the pain has remained as strong as before. Not knowing where to find relief, Ash settles for what must be the most stupid thing people have tried to (but try nevertheless), to go back in time in order to change the past!

However, before she can even start on this scheme she must be able to dreamwalk again, which ends her up doing community service for trying to buy drugs. And here Sixteen starts. All the characters from the original cast will make an appearance, but I won't go into the specifics in order to not spoil people who might want to read Fifteen first (which is what I would recommend).

Since it was about two years since I read Fifteen, I was a bit hazy on the details before I started Sixteen, and what surprised me most was how teenager-y it was. Of course Ash is just fifteen years old and when she's not fending of the demons, she is a normal teenager, but it somehow still took some getting used to it from my side. The story was still interesting, although it was a bit more of the same after a while. What I most certainly didn't like what the super sweet ending where

it turned out that Nadine was only such an annoying person because the Jumlin was near. I would have much preferred to see her being not a likable person, but still not evil. Now it made the whole, we shouldn't kill you stuff way too easy.

(spoiler show)


Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Doggone It (A Dreamwalker Mystery)
Doggone It (A Dreamwalker Mystery) - Mag... Doggone It (A Dreamwalker Mystery) - Maggie Toussaint This is the first book of the Dreamwalker series I have read. I wish I had of read the first 2 books before hand. The first couple of chapters of this book had me a little lost. Once I was more or less introduced to the Characters and their lives I couldn't put the book down. I really got into the characters she brought to the book. This story is a pretty fast paced story with lots of twists and turns. I love how she brought not only humans but animals into the starting rolls of the book. I will be reading the first 2 books soon and cannot wait for the 4th book to come out.

The story is about Baxley Powell. She is a Dreamwalker. She is able to travel to the spirit world and talk to the dead. She also works for the Sheriff. Lending her special abilities to help solve crimes. Her newest case is a double murder. Baxley is just learning what all she and her powers can do, it is kind of like on the job training. The more she learns the more danger she could be in in the spirit world, and on our world as well.

Review of Awoken
Awoken - Sarah C. Noffke

I enjoyed this audiobook. The story is good, it kept my interest all the way through.
I doesn't have too much angst, thought there is a little teenage drama. And of course the eternal love triangle...

 

The narrator does an ok job too. All in all this was a good way to pass the time while driving to work!


I will definitely be looking into getting hold of the rest of the series, I would like to know where it goes from here, even though it doesn't actually end on a cliffhanger and you could very easily get away with reading just this one book if that's what you would like.
