Dreamseeker

22436720

Dreamseeker (Dreamwalker – 2) by CS Friedman

When Jessica Drake learned that her DNA didn’t match that of her parents, she had no idea that the search for her heritage would put her family’s lives in danger, or force her to cross into another world. In an alternate Earth dominated by individuals with unnatural powers called Gifts, Jessica learned that there was a curse within her blood, one so feared that all who possessed it were destroyed on sight. For she was a Dreamwalker, and the same dark Gift that would allow her to enter the dreams of others would eventually destroy her mind and spread insanity to all those around her.

Now she is back with her family, but there is no peace to be found. Her childhood home has been destroyed, her mother’s mind is irreparably damaged, and the Gift of the Dreamwalkers is beginning to manifest in her in terrifying ways.

When a stranger invades her dreams and creatures from her nightmares threaten to cross into the waking universe, Jessica knows she must return to the alternate Earth where she was born and seek allies… even if doing so means she must bargain with those she fears the most.

My Review

4 stars

We pick up the story shortly after Jessica, her brother, and the rest get back to this world. Jesse has closed that bridge but that doesn’t mean that there are no other paths back to this world. Jesse’s mother has never really recovered after the attack in Dreamwalker. It has been up to Jesse to take care of everyone. But then she starts having nightmares of strange creatures and she is afraid of going insane. Jesse decides that the best course of action is to go back stop those that are trying to kill her.

This story picks up right after Dreamwalker. Jesse’s mother has never really recovered and Jesse has picked up the slack. But when she starts having nightmare she figures that she better go back and stop those that are after her. The part I liked was the different abilities and about Shadows. I would have loved to learn more about the Shadows.

I admit that it has been a while since I read Dreamwalker and it took me a little bit to remember what happened. But even then it seems that things have gone in a different direction. Devon and Rita didn’t have that draw like in the first book. Then I was thinking that there was going to be more romance since it was hinted at pretty heavy but I didn’t really see that here.

Overall I did like Dreamseeker. It does seem weaker than Dreamwalker so I hope Dreamweaver will fill in some spots.

To purchase Dreamseeker make sure to check out Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads and CS Friedman’s website.

I received Dreamseeker for free in exchange for an honest review.

synopsis

Lily-May, wife of Detective Murray and mother to beautiful Callie, tragically goes missing, with her daughter witnessing the ordeal, but unable to save her mother from the captor’s grip. Will Callie be able to live with herself?

A mystery as to where she is or how she got there and to stay alive, Lily begins a new life pretending to be someone else. Will she ever be found, or will her captor carry out the unthinkable when he learns her true identity?

Back home, Lily’s husband and daughter have been left to pick up the pieces. While both suffer immeasurable pain and emptiness, Callie believes she has seen her mother on a number of occasions but has been too scared to tell her dad who, unbeknownst to her, has witnessed his own sightings of this same woman.

Has Lily returned, or is it her ghost back to haunt her daughter and husband?

My Review

5 stars

Lily-May was abducted in front of you daughter Callie. Callie tried her best to stop it but her mother was gone. Callie and her father Detective Murray keep up hope and keep fighting to find Lily. Lily knows that her capture thinks she is someone else, living in fear that if he finds out that she is the wrong person. But as time goes one, Callie starts seeing someone that could be her mother. But she is afraid to tell her father although he is experiencing the same thing. Are they both losing their minds or is Lily haunting them for not saving her.

Lily has been abducted and abused by her captor. But the things that she fears the most is what would happen if he figured out that she is not the person he thought she was. Then there is Callie who is torn since she was not able to save her mother. But I love how Callie and her father keep fighting and trying to find Lily

This is an amazing story. I will warn you that the perspective jumps people and time. But once you start reading, you will not be putting this book down. It is heart wrenching the loss the family suffers and horrifying the things Lily goes through. But the ending brings it all together.

J.C. Rochford is a wonderful author and I can’t wait to read other books from her let alone so see where this series goes from here.
