Will he risk everything that is at stake for one human he hardly knows?For to wake Mallory up from her deep sleep, he must enter her dreams . . .
I wasn’t aware that this was part of a series and it was very different than I expected… and very good. As a lover of fantasy, I found the way the story was weaved very intriguing.
I also thoroughly enjoyed the originality and depth of Hellenthal’s dreams and perceptions of art and creativity. I love the book cover.
A very good fantasy tale; very well weaved.
