The Dreamer – Book Review

If you are looking for a fresh and compelling fantasy to delve into this summer, The Dreamer by E. J. Mellow will leave you hungering for more!

The Dreamer is the first book in The Dreamland Series – the New Adult Contemporary Fantasy Trilogy that will have you asking the question:

Does something truly exist if you only see it when you close your eyes?

In The Dreamer, we are introduced to a young woman named Molly, who is leading an ordinary life with her boyfriend Jared and her best friend Becca until the night of her 24th birthday.

On that evening, she is struck by lightning and then – night after night – she finds herself traveling, in her dreams, to another world – another dimension.

It’s night. Always night. Dreams guard against the evil forged by nightmares. Infinite shooting stars illuminate a moonless sky. A city stands alone, surrounded by a darkened field. On its fringes, a man watches one star separate from the masses and fall. What survives the crash will unveil a secret centuries long hidden.

In this new world – the dream world – she meets Dev – a man she cannot help but be attracted to. As they discover that Molly possesses the gift to conjure almost anything she desires into existence – a power that’s invaluable in his world – Molly finds herself being drawn more and more into this new world.

But what will happen to Molly as her nocturnal activities begin to affect her real life?

Although this book contains some adult language and innuendo as one would expect from a New Adult book, the story is well worth reading if you are a fan of Contemporary Fantasy. I can’t wait to read Books 2 and 3 in the series!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
