Dreaming was never so deadly or exciting...
Hades doesn't often give second chances.
Xypher has one month on Earth as a human to redeem himself through one good deed or be condemned to eternal torture in Tartarus.
Simone Dubois is a woman with a secret even she doesn't know. She's never understood why the dead haunt her, especially her sidekick who will never leave her alone. But over the years she's learned to cope. At least until an intriguing and lethal stranger walks into her life.
Now the fate of the world hangs in their hands...
It was bad enough when just the dead relied in her. Now there's Xypher who needs Simone to open a portal to hell.
And you thought you had bad days...
Finally a Dream-Hunter book that touched me. Granted, if compared with other books in Dark-Hunter series, it has a few similarities (a tortured hero, a heroine who shows him how to love and not just hate), but the fact is, Dream Chaser
stands on its own. And more importantly - delivers.
I had one problem in the end of the book (the way Xypher solved everything with Satara seemed a little out of character for him, especially after everything what happened), but despite it, the book left its mark on me.
Entertaining, fast-paced and grabbing, Dream Chaser
proved to be an emotional roller-coaster with both, interesting twists and characters to back it up. Xypher caught my attention in Devil May Cry and didn't disappoint me by coming back. On the contrary, his inner strength, values and vulnerabilities grabbed my heart. And the story of his - kept me till wee hours of night. I just couldn't let the book down.
It was well developed and balanced. With an intricate world (hard to understand for a new reader) and interesting secondary characters. Most importantly, an amazing heroine worthy of being called as such. Smart, funny, compassionate and not over the top, Simone was the perfect leading lady.
Once the hero had met her, he was doomed. And so was I, the moment I picked the book. And never regretted it.
