The Dream Hunter

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

‘Dream-Hunter’ series Book #1

(‘Dark-Hunter’ series Book #18)

In the ethereal world of dreams, there are champions who fight to protect the dreamer and there are demons who pry 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 vivd 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 brougth 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?

Review: Finished February 11th, 2007. ‘UNPUTDOWNABLE!’ As simple as that. Kenyon did it to me once again. Although the novel is fantasy, her characters are very real and believably true to life; thoughts, feelings, actions, words… The way she describes the surroundings, whether on earth in Greece, above the clouds on Olympus, down below when you meet Hades, you’re there, in every aspect, every step of the way. And she did to me what she usually does; so many emotions for the reader to feel. Anger, frustration, heartbreak, hope, anticipation, love… She made me freakout pissed, she had me sobbing, she hand me holding my breath, praying that everything would be all right. I’m not sure, but I think this one may surpass her other novels. A definite recommendation! If you haven’t read any of the DH series, please, please, please … get started!

Rating:  (I’d put 20 if I could!)
