Product Description

Book two of Dreamwalkers

I freed him from imprisonment, only to become his pawn.

I, Shandria Langston, last remaining daughter of the leader of the Sunan, was charged with an impossible task. I had to rescue Kraggon Dragmor—sworn enemy of my people—from the death chamber. If I refused, our world as we know it would be destroyed.

Oh, but was he happy with my sacrifice? No. Instead of being properly appreciative of this selfless act, of being grateful that I tended to him through a deathly illness, the bastard's kidnapped me. I'm "a symbol of retribution for his people." The man has no heart.

I have only one advantage in captivity: I can read Kraggon's thoughts. I know that he can't afford to admit that I empathize with his people. He can't afford to admit that I am more beautiful than any woman he's ever seen, or allow me to fire his blood with every look…and he can't afford to admit that he'll do anything to save me, that I've become his heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great second book in the series 12 February 2016

>Book Review – Dark Summer Dreams –

>I am an independent reviewer. This is the second book in the Dreamwalker series and ends in an HEA. This book can be read as a standalone.

>The major theme in this story is one of predjudice. Two groups of people warring against the other, but no one really knows the reason why. Like the Hatfields and McCoys, the two peoples fight each other just based on their race. Who may be manipulating the races to war with each other is an unanswered question.

>Shandria is a princess of her people. To ensure her safety, she is hidden away in the woods for most of her life. She has an ability to dream walk and commune with animals, but no friends. She is told to sneak a rival prisoner out of jail, before he could be killed. Kraggon is the king of the rival people. He used Shandria’s help and then imprisons her with his people.

>The book uses a lot of paranormal aspects to bend some realistic rules, but the story works. Shandria can communicate telepathically and her talent comes in handy a lot. Even though the story was paranormal, Shandria’s situation as a prisoner was portrayed realistically. She was a princess of a sworn enemy. Kraggon’s people treated her terribly, at first.

>The story had quite a few love scenes, which were great, but the scenes describing the sexual tension between Kraggon and Shandria were some of the hottest scenes I’ve read in a long time. I really felt a part of the environment, which is unusual for me in a paranormal, make believe world. This story is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving it 5 stars.

Deception and treachery work to undermine a sensual love sprouting between enemies. When Shandria, daughter of the Sunan leader, is chosen by the gods to help a terrorist escape a death sentence, she finds herself kidnapped and surrounded by the enemy. Can she escape from those who hate her, or will she helplessly fall in love with a man conjured from a dream? “Dark Summer Dreams” is a wonderful book filled with sexual tension, hot love scenes, and tender moments. If you’re a Dreamwalkers fan, this is a must read!

Loved this book as much as the first one in the Dreamwalkers series. The story is great and the world that Danube has crafted for her stories is somewhere I'd spend a few days
5.0 out of 5 stars Review: Dark Summer Dreams ~ An emotionally engaging read. 17 June 2014

~ 5 Summer Dreams ~

Dark Summer Dreams is book two in the Dreamwalkers series by Danube Adele. This is my first time reading Ms. Adele. I started this book not knowing it was part of a series and it does stand on its own. Ms. Adele pulled me into her Dreamwalkers world and never let me go.

I was impressed with Shandria Langston a young girl/women who has been isolated from her family and people most of her life (coddled). She had her doubts, but came to realize she is much strong then she thinks. I just loved everything about her, the struggles she went through, the emotions, and the character growth. Fabulously done! I also liked how her abilities are portrayed and that she does not take advantage of the gift, but uses it for the better.

Kraggon our strong handsome warrior that Shandria saves from death. He pretty much got his heart and soul crushed and now has some pretty big baggage. He fights every step of the way on his attraction to Shandria. It was wonderful to see him interact with his people and how much they love him, after all he is their true King.

This book is an emotionally engaging read. So many things are at play in this book. We get some pretty interesting dream sequences that give us more information then what Shandria remembers. I liked this! It also helped explain Kraggon and Shandria’s burring desire/attraction for one another. At one point I wondered who was Taylor, but then I figured out she is Shandria’s sister-in-law who is in Quicksilver Dreams. The writing style is wonderful and ease to follow. All I can say is I loved everything about this book!

I was pulled in and could not put it down. I feel in love with the world, plot, characters the whole thing and now I must get my hands on book one Quicksilver Dreams.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't the best novel I've read--paled in comparison to book one 20 June 2014
By Gabbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Why I Picked It Up

I enjoyed the first novel, Quicksilver Dreams, and I wanted to see what happened with the plot line that runs through the series.

Plot

Dark Summer Dreams follows Ryder’s sister, Shandria, instead of him. That’s the first thing that shocked me. Honestly, after finishing the first novel, I never expected the second book just to jump to completely different characters. So I went into this novel a bit apprehensively, but still wanting to find out what happened with the on-going plot.

Dark Summer Dreams had a slow start. And by slow, I mean really slow. It took me days to get through the first quarter of the novel. It was all building up to the interesting parts, I guess, but it was pretty difficult for me to get through. This in itself was a shock because the previous novel started rolling from the beginning. About half-way through, things started picking up. Then it was easier to stay with and the plot actually went pretty well. There were things that you could predict would happen so I wasn’t really surprised much in this novel, but it wasn’t bad. The plot didn’t make my heart pound or make me anxious for the characters.

Leading Lady

Shandria changed a lot in this novel. She had been isolated from everyone except her grandmother for years due to attempts on her life. So when her grandmother says the spirits are sending her to free a prisoner from their jail, a Brausa enemy, she is timid at best. She was quiet, pretty weak, and too nice. However, she does evolve over the novel. She gets bolder, braver, and stronger. It was like a complete 180.She went through some tough stuff and had to adjust. She was a very selfless character.

Leading Male

Kraggon was the Brausa prisoner that Shandria helped escape and the rightful Brausa king. He irked me a lot in the beginning. He was a total brute who took advantage of the fact that Shandria saved him from being executed and then had the nerve to kidnap her! So I was definitely not Team Kraggon for the longest. However, after seeing what he went through in the past I became slightly more sympathetic. He had suffered a lot of hurt by the hands of the Sunan, but I still think he shouldn’t have pin-pointed that anger on Shandria. She was an innocent who helped him escape! Like, how does that make sense? I warmed up to him a bit more over the course of the novel but not enough to say that I loved him. He was still hard, impulsive, and controlling. But he was a good leader to his people, I can give him that.

Romance

So you have the rightful Brausa king and the Sunan leader’s daughter and the Brausa and Sunan are mortal enemies. You could see where this would cause problems, right? Especially because there were things going on that neither nations knew about. This was one of those relationships where it honest-to-God went from hate/attraction to actual love and it took a while. I enjoyed it, the fact that they wouldn’t let each other in but were obviously falling hard for each other. They were a great match: she was the gentle and reason to his hard and impulsive. Once they got over some…emotional baggage, they were great. I’m curious to see what consequences their relationship will cause in the next novel.

World Building

This installment to this series was set more on the planet that the Sunan and Brausa inhabited instead of Earth, like book one. It was interesting to see the differences between the two planets, although at times I thought it could have been the same one save for a few animals. So the world building setting-wise wasn’t much. It was more history-wise. In this novel we see a lot of the history of the Brausa and even some of the Sunan. The characters didn’t get to do much with the information they uncovered, which slightly frustrated me. I hope that in the next installment something is actually done about it.

Conclusion

Dark Summer Dreams wasn’t the best novel that I’ve read. It wasn’t horrible, but I had problems getting into the plot: so much to where I had to pick up a new book. It left me feeling frustrated with the characters and almost lack of substance. Nonetheless, it wasn’t a bad story. Hopefully the next one will be better.
