Genre: urban fantasy

About Dreamwalker:

All is quiet at Janet Begay’s Crossroads Hotel, where the paranormal is normal, until Emmett Smith, the most powerful mage in the world, arrives to announce his intent to steal Janet’s smart-mouthed magic mirror.

Janet already has her hands full trying to keep her sister Gabrielle under control as well as plan her upcoming wedding to her dragon-Shifter boyfriend Mick and taking care of the weird creatures that suddenly turn up at Barry’s biker bar.

When Janet is knocked out fighting the creatures, she wakes up seemingly in the past, when she and Mick had first met and traveled across country by motorcycle, alone and free. The dream seems so real that Janet begins to forget it isn’t.

The dreams call her back, each one more powerful than the last, until she can no longer distinguish between past and present — and she’s not the only one affected. Janet and her friends — Mick, Cassandra, Nash, Gabrielle, Coyote, and the dragon — must band together to thwart this greatest of magics before it splits them into fragments and leaves the world vulnerable to the most evil of evils.

Review:

I think this dragon softail bike would be an awesome ride for Janet Begay! 🙂

By the way, the cover art sucks! The last book was not the best in this series so I went into this one a little apprehensively. Glad to find that Allyson James got her mojo back! This book was an enjoyable read! Plus of course it got dragons and I am a huge fan of dragons! Specially the hot, sexy male kind! Anyway, it has been a long time since the last book so the sting of Nightwalker has faded considerably already. As in, I have forgotten my ire about it. So this book got a fresh start, so to speak. Which was a good thing. I ended up enjoying this book as opposed to the last book in this series. And of course, the wonderful world building is still there. I also love meeting the characters again like long lost old friends. Learning more on how Gabrielle is turning out. That was good! I liked that one! The plot though… felt just a tad bit flimsy to me. It barely eked out through a story. A wrong move and it wouldn’t be there at all… That’s how it felt like. So the plot was a downer. But it was not enough to bring the rating of this book down to less than 4. I enjoyed this book and looking forward to Dragon Bites!

Story telling quality = 4.5
Character development = 5
Story itself = 4.5
Ending = 4.5
World building = 5
Cover art = 2.5
Pace = 4
Plot = 3

 

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 cherries
