After I got over the shock, I sat down to read it (it took about 30 minutes). The writing was great, the characters endearing and the story line intriguing; but all those pluses just pissed me off more. What a waste. What a way to squander a good story line. By adding a few secondary characters, a few twist and turns of the plot, this premise could have been molding into a truly memorable novel. But now I'll only remember Ms Moning's "Into the Dreaming" as a disappointment.
One day after misteiously receiving an ancient tapestry Jane Sillee wakes up and finds out that she has traveled back in time to middle age Scotland, a land of castles, kings and magic, where the good news is that she ran into the arms of her lost dream highlander. The bad news: his magical and dreamed highlander does not remember his own name, neither remembers her, let alone the love they once shared in her dreams. To make things worse she finds out that Aedean has been turned into an ageless creature called Vengeance by a dark and evil king. Jane Sillee finds herself in an adventure where she only has only one month to help Aedean remember who he really is, remember her and re-ignite the pasion and the love they both once felt in their own magical place that she created on her dreams.
If you like Karen Marie Moning books you will absolutely love this one.
Luckily I did not pay full price for this, as I would have been very upset if I had. In fact, I received it as a gift from someone who ordered it for me on Amazon and she probably thought she was ordering a novel. Most people don't take the time to look at the number of pages listed on an item when they purchase online. At $2.99, this is overpriced for a 100-page short story. Full length romances are 350-400 pages long and usually between $6.99-7.99. I was "tricked" this past year when I purchased Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dragonswan online and didn't know until I received it that I was paying $2.99 for a single short story. Again, that short story could have appeared in a paranormal romance collection - and should have.
In spite of this major gripe, I did like the story. Although I also think it could have been expanded into a full length novel. I have not read any of Karen Marie Moning's books previously, but now I will check out some of her other novels. I'm still a bit annoyed about the short-story-masquerading-as-a-novel issue though!
In "Into The Dreaming", the Fae king tricks highlander, Aedan into serving a 5 year sentence to save his people, only 5 years is in Fae years which is 500 years. 500 years in the Fae ice prison, acting as servant to the Fae king, leaves him a shell of his former self with no memories. The Fae queen wanting to counteract this cruelty, gives him dreams to keep him sane. Jane a modern woman shares these dreams and is totally ruined for any relation in the real world because what man can compare to the highlander of her dreams. When Aedan is released from his prison, a Tapestry sends Jane back to his time. He has no memory of her and rejects all her advances. Now she has a month to get Aedan to remember his self and dreams or he will return to being a servant to the Fae king.
Definitely worth get Tapestry because the other stories are all good and quick reads.
