Review

"Jax is a lonesome daydreamer, deeply unsatisfied with his life as he works as a telemarketer. He evades real-world connections to escape to his fantasy world where he's a handsome, charming king-slayer with Maya, the woman of his dreams at his side and a sword of great personality and strength that he calls Somnior. In the real world, Jax works alongside Diane and Mike, who he introduces to us as if he doesn't know them well and only met them through work. This is why I was shocked that they all went to high school together and actually have some connected history. Significantly more time is spent in Jax's fantasy world than his real-world, but as the story progresses, it starts to make sense why I don't know much about the goings on of his real-life. In his fantasy world, it's vivid and complicated at times, especially when it gets to figuring out how his loyal sword Somnior transports him from area to area. As for Maya, Jax's right-hand woman, she can come off as a bit much. Her character is strong and free-spirited, but also very immature and somewhat annoying. She reminds me of a young child. Despite this, her childishness highlights how dull Jax really is.
 
At points, I couldn't help but wonder how much time was Jax spending in sleep and still keeping a job? I feel he's dealing with anxiety and depression, and it shows in his real-world interactions. He won't allow himself to have fun and is afraid to really be himself, and I can relate to that, I think a lot of us can at least once in our lives. But for Jax, he's trapped in between accepting himself and hiding so deep within himself that he becomes another person that only exists in his dreams. The text messages and letters sprinkled throughout are a nice connection to both worlds and a pleasant surprise to come across.

There are times when the scenes drag on, sometimes heavy with description, yet they don't detract from how well the story generally flows. It can be hard to switch from one world to another, but the author manages it well. The characters, both fantasy and real-world, are mostly complex and the varied subplots kept me engaged. Overall, I would recommend Lost In a Dream to anyone looking for a slow, but rewarding, reveal and life lesson."
