Synopsis: The world Darkside is in turmoil when Chimera Marshal Steve Coll, bloody and beaten, makes it back to Maze City and into Maisie’s arms. He bears a terrible message—The Sandman, the god of the world of dreams, is rising, and he’s bringing devastation to the waking world. Steve must embrace his dual nature to save those he’s sworn to protect. And yet, how can he fight a being who destroys everything in his path?
Even awake, no one is safe.
After the fall of the black market, Maisie Lane’s city is overrun with criminals who want her dreamscape for their own. She’s always envisioned Maze City populated, but not with people like these. Nevertheless, she must relinquish some of her control not only to save the man she loves, but to protect and defend her precious city. While friends and family face danger and betrayal, another enemy is lurking in the shadows.
As time runs out, Maisie and Steve must fight with everything they have, or lose it all, including each other. And even if they somehow prevail, nothing will ever be the same.
The Sandman is the seventh installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well.
Revel with me.
Erin Kellison, Sandman, Reveler Series Book 7
Well I must say, my first thought was that Ms. Kellison had written these characters into a dead-end. I know in my heart she will have a way out for some of them (if not all), but that was my overwhelming feeling throughout reading this installment. There’s only been a few authors that I’ve come across that have made me wonder how the story could possibly have a HEA and somehow they all make it happen, though at the time you can’t fathom how. You wrack your mind to find a light at the end of the tunnel and can’t see it. That’s where the genius comes in on the Authors’ part. That’s how the Greats get your attention and keep you on the edge of your seat. Ms. Kellison is one of these special, imaginative Authors that can just blow your mind with the twists and turns and still have a plan for the end. I appreciate your imagination immensely and am grateful you have the strength and ability to follow through to the very end. I could only dream of having half the imagination of this Author. Steve comes back in this installment, Maze City is overrun by criminals and worse. The waking world is in utter chaos and close to apocalyptic. No one knows who to trust. Jordan, Malcolm and Harlen are exhausted and fighting for humanity. You’ve got me on the edge of me seat again, Ms. Kellison, but I suspect that’s exactly where you want me.
