The world Darkside is in turmoil when Chimera Marshal Steve Coll, bloody and beaten, makes it back to Maze City and into Maisie’s arms. He bears a terrible message—The Sandman, the god of the world of dreams, is rising, and he’s bringing devastation to the waking world. Steve must embrace his dual nature to save those he’s sworn to protect. And yet, how can he fight a being who destroys everything in his path?

Even awake, no one is safe.

After the fall of the black market, Maisie Lane’s city is overrun with criminals who want her dreamscape for their own. She’s always envisioned Maze City populated, but not with people like these. Nevertheless, she must relinquish some of her control not only to save the man she loves, but to protect and defend her precious city. While friends and family face danger and betrayal, another enemy is lurking in the shadows.

As time runs out, Maisie and Steve must fight with everything they have, or lose it all, including each other. And even if they somehow prevail, nothing will ever be the same.

The Sandman is the seventh installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well.

Revel with me.
My thoughts:

Oh man! This one really had me totally pulled into this world. We were left with several questions from the last book and then BAM! Although most of those get answered we are hard hit with some things I didn't expect. Nope, totally blew me away! I don't want to say too much as I will give all away if I continue. I'll say that this was an excellent addition to the series and the twists here were excellent.

I give this book 4 stars. It would have been 5 but we are left with a wicked cliffie. Other than that, it is perfect. I cannot wait for the next installment which is the last book. I HAVE to know what comes next. I recommend it to those that love adult UF/PNR mash ups.

    1. Considering you like those kind of mash-ups I don't think you have to worry. ;)

  2. Yay for answers!! Love when we get those:) I haven't read any of the books in this series Melissa, but I think I need to remedy that immediately:)

    1. All of them are out now so I think it is safe with those cliffies. :)

  3. How have I not heard of this series before now? It looks like so much fun!

  4. I'm raking my brain trying to see if I have heard of this series before, but I don't think so. It sounds a fun series especially if you are continuing to enjoy it with 7 books out. That's always a good sign. :) I will have to look it up.

  5. I've never heard of this series before! Sounds fantastic!

  6. I didn't like the first book of this series so I didn't pick up the second one. I guess the cliffie thing is still ongoing. That's a killer especially as you like this series.

  7. Cliffies! Oh man... but I do think this is a series I've been thinking about reading.

  8. World building sounds great but not the cliffie

  9. The trick to avoiding cliffhangers, is reading the whole series when it is finished, and I just might do that! Thanks for the review Melissa.

  10. Oh my gosh that cover! Gah on the cliffie. I'm gonna have to wait on these. They sound good though!

  11. Sucks that the cliffie stole a star! But it's great to see that you were blown away!
