Lucid Dreaming by Cassandra Page is a story about a young woman who is able to cross over into people's dreams. Melaina is an interesting character to read about as she finds herself the target of an enemy that she cannot see and doesn't even know why. Leander, an Oneorio is trying to find her father but he needs her help to do so but since she knows nothing she can't help even if she wanted to.
Her life is quiet but things are about to get stirred up as someone or something decides to start coming after not only her but others around her.
I really enjoyed reading this book but I was a bit dismayed at the sudden ending. Or so it felt to me. I wanted to read more about Melaina but overall I really enjoyed this book.
I find that I’m often impressed by the talent coming out of Australia. There are some seriously talented authors down there, and Cassandra Page just solidified my opinion (Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they’re not ALL winners, but I have yet to find out I didn’t like). There was, of course, some Down Under lingo, which I was cool with. I even learned a few words I had never heard before. Like, “doona”, which is apparently slang for duvet or quilt. I feel more worldly already! 😉
The characters were what really got me hooked. Melaina isn’t your standard protagonist. She has a mysterious childhood (that you don’t learn quite enough about), a shifty guardian angel of sorts, and is just barely making ends meet with the money she makes performing dream therapy. She is fiercely loyal to her mother and friends, and would literally battle the forces of evil for them. She’s no stronger than the average woman when she’s awake, but when she enters the dream world, her character is capable of so much more.
At first, I assumed that the love interest may come in the form of her guardian, Leander. He’s attractive, and knows it! Cocky and confident, but he’s also harboring secrets. It’s clear from the beginning that Melaina doesn’t trust him an inch. She takes measures to protect herself from him. Enter Brad. While Melaina trusts him explicitly, I didn’t! The chemistry between them feels… strained? But I think that’s intentional. The reader is left feeling suspicious of everyone! It added a perfect balance of mystery to this romantic urban fantasy.
As of this moment, this a standalone novel. But I can’t help but feel that this would make a really interesting series. Melaina still has a lot of growth to do, and I have questions left unanswered.
A copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
But when the disbelieving and highly agitated Larry came to Melaina for help, she unleashed a violence and malevolence that she had no idea was out there in the Oneiroi world – were her skills strong enough to outwit the blight? Or would she need help; she had no idea where from?
With Melaina’s mother quite often sleeping when she visited her in the nursing home, she knew she couldn’t approach her brash, rude and dominating Uncle – her best friend Jen, who was also her flatmate was her sole confidant. But when danger visited them at 2am one night, Melaina knew the escalation of the nightmares was upon her – she had to do something, and fast, before anyone else was hurt. But what? Her mental anguish was exhausting…
Wow! Breathtakingly brilliant! Aussie author Cassandra Page’s latest fantasy offering, Lucid Dreaming, is a winner in my opinion. A mixture of fantasy and mystery, it kept me glued to the pages unable to stop until the very last page. And I’m hopeful (pretty sure?) there will be a sequel at least. Fingers crossed as I’d love to find out more about certain characters. I really enjoyed Melaina’s character, but there are others who were equally as well crafted. I have no hesitation in recommending Lucid Dreaming highly – definitely worth a read.
