In Tortured Dreams, Aislinn is not an official member of the SCTU yet. She's there as a contractor on a trial basis due to her expertise in certain matters. This book is a must read not only for the story itself, but it gives a history of the SCTU that will become important in later books. It gives a base line for where Aislinn was as a character when the series started. Having read all the books now, there has been some serious growth there. James has done a wonderful job of developing her across all the Dreams and Realities books. This was made quite obvious to me by the order I read them. I actually read Tortured Dreams after Cannibal Dreams. Reading it that way was like going backwards. Aislinn had already been developing as a character and growing. When I went back to read Tortured Dreams, it literally took me back to her square one. It was interesting to see.
Now after saying all that lets talk about the book. I can honestly say I loved watching the mystery unfold. It was certainly not in your face. You learned the information as the main character worked through it. The story arch was intriguing in how you learned about her and what was so special about her as well.
The interaction of the other characters was just as important. Each had a true roll and pieces of information that would help with the puzzle they worked on...even if it was just to be sounding boards for each other.
This was truly a book I did not want to put down. Even when I did I thought about it then would get it so I could continue it. If you love a good thriller/mystery this I believe will fit the bill. I am looking forward to reading more in these series.
As her first book, it is a bit rough, but it is a diamond in the rough. There are abrupt endings to chapters and occasions where it drags, but overall the pace is good. It really helps to already love the characters as this book gives a lot of background info, but non of it is really needed through the next 3 books. Now, time for me to read book 5, Cannibal Dreams.
The plots are good. The characters are well thought out and complete. You need to be able to stand up to some tough writing, but the result is certainly worth the effort. I have enjoyed reading these books in large swatches, eaven occasionally completely though the first time. The fact that I am trying to collect "hard" copies of her books should suggest their value.
Other favorite authors are Rex Stout, John D. MacDonald, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein and Larry Niven.
And i will admit one of my biggest series pet peeves (especially for free books/book deals) is when a book cannot stand alone and to find out how it ends you have to buy then next book. Hadena James did not do that. This is a stellar stand alone story. You get to the end and you actually get a resolution. But the characters and concepts are compelling enough that you just HAVE to continue the series.
Im two books into this series and am about to buy the next one. Amazingly done! Well worth the read 😀
Then I returned to it and started fresh. This experience was entirely different. I wanted to quickly turn each page to read what was happening next.
Hadena has woven a powerful and quite unconventional story with exceptionally strong and complex character development that evolved as the storyline progressed. I will be buying the next book in the series.
