The Dreamer, E. J. Mellow

The Blurb 

Molly hasn’t slept well since the night of her twenty-fourth birthday. Being struck by lightning might have something to do with it, but then again, her chicken did look a little undercooked at dinner. Whatever the culprit, her life quickly catapults from mundane to insane as, night after night, Molly is transported through her once dreamless sleep to a mysterious land illuminated by shooting stars.

There she meets the captivating but frustrating Dev, and together they discover Molly possesses a power coveted by his people—the ability to conjure almost anything she desires into existence. Seduced by the possibilities of this gift, Molly shifts her attention from waking life toward the man, the magic, and the world found in her dreams.

But Molly must ask herself—does something truly exist if you only see it when you close your eyes?

Faced with the threat of losing everything—her job, best friend, boyfriend, and most importantly, that little thing called her sanity—Molly will learn just how far she’ll go to uncover what is real and what is merely a figment of her imagination.

My Thoughts 

Alright, cover your ears for a moment.


Okay, come back now.

First of all, I absolutely love Molly’s voice in this book. She’s dynamic, smart, intelligent and super funny. I also really like that she’s slightly “older” than the usual heroines, and that she’s closer to my age group. It’s a detail, but I like it. 

I bloody love that world. The dreams are handled perfectly, not too weird, but not too “real”. Plus, in Terra Somniorum (The Land of Dreams), everyone wears black. Those are my people. Bonus points. 

The world is amazing. The concept is genius: everyone has been intrigued, at least once, about dreams. So it can appeal to EVERYONE. (Do you get the hint? EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK)

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll tiptoe away and order the sequel (and stop eating for a month, I don’t have any money)!
