>I am an independent reviewer. This is the second book in the Dreamwalker series and ends in an HEA. This book can be read as a standalone.
>The major theme in this story is one of predjudice. Two groups of people warring against the other, but no one really knows the reason why. Like the Hatfields and McCoys, the two peoples fight each other just based on their race. Who may be manipulating the races to war with each other is an unanswered question.
>Shandria is a princess of her people. To ensure her safety, she is hidden away in the woods for most of her life. She has an ability to dream walk and commune with animals, but no friends. She is told to sneak a rival prisoner out of jail, before he could be killed. Kraggon is the king of the rival people. He used Shandria’s help and then imprisons her with his people.
>The book uses a lot of paranormal aspects to bend some realistic rules, but the story works. Shandria can communicate telepathically and her talent comes in handy a lot. Even though the story was paranormal, Shandria’s situation as a prisoner was portrayed realistically. She was a princess of a sworn enemy. Kraggon’s people treated her terribly, at first.
>The story had quite a few love scenes, which were great, but the scenes describing the sexual tension between Kraggon and Shandria were some of the hottest scenes I’ve read in a long time. I really felt a part of the environment, which is unusual for me in a paranormal, make believe world. This story is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving it 5 stars.
Dark Summer Dreams is book two in the Dreamwalkers series by Danube Adele. This is my first time reading Ms. Adele. I started this book not knowing it was part of a series and it does stand on its own. Ms. Adele pulled me into her Dreamwalkers world and never let me go.
I was impressed with Shandria Langston a young girl/women who has been isolated from her family and people most of her life (coddled). She had her doubts, but came to realize she is much strong then she thinks. I just loved everything about her, the struggles she went through, the emotions, and the character growth. Fabulously done! I also liked how her abilities are portrayed and that she does not take advantage of the gift, but uses it for the better.
Kraggon our strong handsome warrior that Shandria saves from death. He pretty much got his heart and soul crushed and now has some pretty big baggage. He fights every step of the way on his attraction to Shandria. It was wonderful to see him interact with his people and how much they love him, after all he is their true King.
This book is an emotionally engaging read. So many things are at play in this book. We get some pretty interesting dream sequences that give us more information then what Shandria remembers. I liked this! It also helped explain Kraggon and Shandria’s burring desire/attraction for one another. At one point I wondered who was Taylor, but then I figured out she is Shandria’s sister-in-law who is in Quicksilver Dreams. The writing style is wonderful and ease to follow. All I can say is I loved everything about this book!
I was pulled in and could not put it down. I feel in love with the world, plot, characters the whole thing and now I must get my hands on book one Quicksilver Dreams.
