In the ethereal world of dreams, there are champions who fight to protect the dreamer and there are demons who prey on them... Arik is such a predator. Condemned by the gods to live eternity without emotions, Arik can only feel when he's in the dreams of others. For thousands of years, he's drifted through the human unconscious, searching for sensation. Now he's finally found a dreamer whose vivid mind can fill his emptiness.Dr. Megeara Kafieri watched her father ruin himself and his reputation as he searched to prove Atlantis was real. Her deathbed promise to him to salvage his reputation has now brought her to Greece where she intends to prove once and for all that the fabled island is right where her father said it was. But frustration and bad luck dog her every step. Especially the day they find a stranger floating in the sea. His is a face she's seen many times.... in her dreams. What she doesn't know is that Arik holds more than the ancient secrets that can help her find the mythical isle of Atlantis. He has made a pact with the god Hades: In exchange for two weeks as a mortal man, he must return to Olympus with a human soul. Megeara's soul. With a secret society out to ruin her expedition, and mysterious accidents that keep threatening her life, Megeara refuses to quit. She knows she's getting closer to Atlantis and as she does, she stumbles onto the truth of what Arik really is.For Arik his quest is no longer simple. No human can know of a Dream-Hunter's existence. His dream of being mortal has quickly turned into his own nightmare and the only way to save himself will be to sacrifice the very thing he wanted to be human for. The only question is, will he?

Dream Hunter is the first book in the Dream Hunter series. My local state has an audio book library, and I found this treasure available, and since I have yet to read the series, I thought that I needed to give it a try. This book was a riot of fun, passion and some Greek adventure. This series is c...
7/10 - I really enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as Acheron (the only other book in the series that I've read, so far). At only 348 pages I found The Dream Hunter a little short and not quite as witty as Acheron (once we got past the nightmare of his human life). I enjoyed catching up with b...
Geary is an archeologist whose life mission is to prove that Atlantis really existed and she has been getting closer to finding it than anyone has in the past. This is making the Greek gods twitchy, since uncovering the lost city would mean unleashing the Atlantean god nicknamed the Destroyer. To so...

He's dream-hunter gone bad, sent to Hades for eternal punishment but given one month of freedom as a reward for helping Kat. Simone is a hu...
2.5 starsI have a couple other series that I’m about 11 books in and they can still get me all fangirl-squee-hyperventilating and whatnot. I wish I could say the same for this series. I wish, I wish, I wish.Geary (short for Mageara) and her family have been searching for Atlantis. Meanwhile a dream ...
