Every night before Amelia falls asleep she makes a wish to dream of him – the man who calls her to their beautiful private oasis, her sanctuary where she is free of her greedy landlord’s threats. But tonight, he will not call Amelia to him. Tonight, another man will step into her world to claim her. Tonight, Amelia’s shattering reality will crumble – and disappear into the Dreamscape…along with her freedom.
When Amelia dreams tonight, her nightmare becomes her new world where Seth is her captor and anything is possible…except escape. Seth needs Amelia to break the curse that binds him to the Dreamscape. He must convince her that she was made to free him, that she was made to join him.
For if he fails, he will never escape his prison, and he will lose Earth to the Netherworld where the evil Erobos wait to consume the human realm and everything in it. If he fails, Seth will lose the one thing that matters to him: Amelia.
I first agreed to review Dreamscape as part of my blog tour stop because of its interesting synopsis. I rarely agree to reviewing self-pubbed books nowadays (past year or so actually) for reasons I know fellow bloggers know and experienced, but I still do read them but am careful in choosing what to read and review. Sometimes I fail and at rare times I succeed. This is one of my success. Dreamscape is all things good! Needs a lot of editing still and some things and facts are confusing still, but that’s understood as I read an ARC, but the whole thing? A blast!
I’m so stoked with the ending of book one right now I can hardly contain my giddiness. I’m geek enough to admit that I can hardly put my phone down (reading from my phone for this one) when i started reading Dreamscape. It has that “it” I as a reader look for in a book. That “it” that makes me a fan, makes me stick into reading and finishing it. I’m so happy I agreed to reading this book. It was admittedly too slow at times, but maybe it was just the side of me who wants to speed things up a bit. The story is by far unique from the paranormal stuffs I’ve read, that’s both a positive and negative. Positive because it’s original and boy do we need new stories out there. Negative, because the writing was still scratchy and I was totally confused one or too many times, I can hardly understand new concepts injected to my brain. It might also be because I was under stress this week. Lagging brain a side effect.
Anyway, the story is basically summed up as this: Seth, the guy MC is kind of a king in the dream world (and dreams are depicted as things fed to mortals and not figments and products of the subconscious). Amelia is a girl Seth puts his interests on, and the first girl he gave his attention to after thousands of years. He’s an old soul, she’s a new one. And the story begins from there. Amelia was basically kidnapped first and she’s one feisty woman who fights for herself and her individuality. She’s one great kick ass character that I’m sure others will fall in love with. While I’m not into Seth but he’s a charmer. The story is more complicated and bigger than what happens between the two of them. It’s so complicated I can’t really tell it to you guys because i will be writing so many paragraphs of I do that, lol. Just know that this is such a great story and has great characters. Not much of an easy read but something that will make you think, and analyze. Great mind exercise. The writing was not smooth but it was written perfectly and in that genius way I love and admire. This is one series to watch out for. 🙂

About Christie Rich:
I grew up daydreaming about fairytales, and my love for discovering new worlds has never died. I am not one of those writers who always knew I would write. I thought that was what other people did until one day, a few years ago, I took a challenge from a friend and typed my first words. My journey has been wonderful, and I cannot imagine a day where I would ever give up writing. My love for reading is what fueled my imagination in the first place and still does. When I am not writing or reading, I enjoy family time with my husband and two children. My family and I live in a quiet community in Northern Utah, and I am so thankful for the rich life I have been blessed with.
