Think your dreams are private? Think again.
As a dreamwalker, I can ease your nightmares, inspire creation, or steal memories, all for the small price of a buttload of cash. I need the money to save my mom’s life, and the clock is ticking.
Then a gorgeous illusionist comes into the picture—though those mouthwatering looks may just be his powers in action. He sends me on a job with a major paycheck, but the pucking vampires show up and ruin everything.
As usual, they suck.
Now I’m knee-deep in a murder case where the victims and the perps could all kill me with a snap of their fingers. Throw in a creepy castle, a stinky moat, and a legendary monster, and we’ve got ourselves a party. Especially when the bodies begin to pile up.
My name is Bailey Spade, and if I don’t solve this case, I’m dead.
Interesting, fun & smart urban fantasy
I really enjoy the world of the Cognizants and this book kicks off a series about Bailey Spade, the dreamwalker we met briefly during the Sasha Urban (SU) series (highly recommend!) set in the same world. Just like that series, this book is fast-paced with clean writing, characters who have interesting powers and fascinating parallel worlds. I haven't quite connected with Bailey and the new characters to the world like I did with those in the first series yet, but I can definitely see the potential to do so. There are appearances from secondary characters from the SU series, and it is certainly enjoyable to see them again. Bailey's dream walking is prevalent and I'm not completely sold on it being used so heavily, but it is definitely an interesting method to interact with other people who are not physically near her, and discover things that are going on. I am highly interested in finding out about more about Bailey, her powers and origin as the series progresses.
Trippy and loved it!
Such a great read! Really loved getting to know Bailey better (she was introduced in the Sasha Urban series) and the reappearance of several much loved/tolerated characters. Bailey is a Dreamwalker so lots of twists and turns on the metaphysical plain versus the physical world. Just a heads up- there is a cliffhanger, but Mr. Zales writes the follow up so quickly, you won’t be waiting for long. Enjoy the ride!!
