The Dreamer Review

The Dreamer (The Dreamland Series #1) by E.J. Mellow
Age Range: There's mildly steamy scenes and explicit words. But, teens can read this because I know a teen boy who read 50SOG.

Rating: yes. THAT CLIFFHANGER!

          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 under-cooked 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.
During Reading
          Enjoying this book immensely! Dev...so bootiful. Tall, muscular, dark hair, blue eyes, strong jaw, high cheekbones, a little scruff...he even carries a bow & arrow. I don't know why, but guys with crossbows/anything that shoots arrows are hot. 

          There's a love triangle...one of the guys is named Jared...I don't like Jared...


I sense a dead ex-girlfriend...I smell it. WTF! That's creepy...

After Reading
          OMG! Before I talk about this book, ISN'T THAT COVER BEAUTIFUL?! So majestic and Sci-Fi looking.
          This book is magnificent. I always say the same things when I review books. I really need more adjectives. The very first page got me kind of confused to what was happening, then it started snowballing rapidly. So happy she got struck by lightning.
          The whole alternate-universe in the story was VERY creative. There's the Nocturnas and the Vigils. If I remember correctly, they coexist with each other in Terra Somniorum (Translation: Land of Dreams.) Nocturnas: made up of Nox/Noct, a Latin root that means night, are people who fight off bad dreams and they're powered by dreams. Isn't that cool!?
          The Nocturnas live in such a cool world. They only wear black. Their mode of transportation is...ZIP LINES! They all carry this bow looking thing that has many purposes, such as zip line handles. This bow-like object is called and Acrus.
          I was so in love with this universe, that I didn't want the MC-Molly-to leave wake up. In the real world, she's so...boring. She whines and complains about staying home. The only good thing that came with her being awake is her totally awesome bff. I really don't like how she can't pick one thing. That's so annoying. Just make good decisions!
          This book got me making theories 24/7 and they did not come true. I applaud the author for that. I hate a predictable book-where's the fun of reading if you know what's going to happen. I am so happy.
