We are the Dolophoni. Diligent. Vigilant. Fierce and inescapable. Servants of the Furies, we are the right hand of justice and no one stands before us.
The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and was banished into exile.
Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.
As a Dream-Hunter, Delphine has spent eternity protecting mankind from the predators who prey on our unconscious state. But now that her allies have been turned, she knows in order to survive, the Dream-Hunters need a new leader. Someone who can train them to fight their new enemies. Cratus is her only hope. But she is a bitter reminder of why he chose to lay down his arms.
Time is running out and if she can't win him to her cause, mankind will be slaughtered and the world we know will soon cease to exist.
If I would leave romance out, I could say Dream Warrior
was a fascinating read (most of the time). Fast-paced, entertaining, full of dangers, twists and the characters all adore. Unfortunately it is a romance book. Only romance was nowhere to be found.
I am talking about the kind where emotions develop, trust is build and love blooms. Dream Warrior
was rather a fast sprint from 'I am tortured and hate everyone' to 'I would do anything for love' in about few days time. Talk about the change of heart.
Actually, the whole hero's conversion was just too quick. I mean the part where he wants Noir's death more than Zeus's baffled me. After all, Zeus only humiliated and tortured Cratus (a.k.a. Jericho) for the last few thousand of years and Noir betrayed him once. Yeah I see the logic in that. Dream Warrior
is a new turning point in the series (leading us to the second key character - Jaden) with lots of new characters and new enemies. And of course more powers.
The Dark-Hunter series is definitely taking a new path (however, to understand the present, it is necessary to read prior books); I just hope it won't turn out to be more of the same, simply with other names.
