Fans of paranormal romance and bad boys, get ready for a dark, sexy plunge into fantasy and desire. The Reveler Series is set in a contemporary world in which people can indulge in Rêve, or shared dreaming—a pop culture phenomenon sweeping the world. Imagine being able to fall asleep at night, only to wake in a dream world, one in which you are lucid and in control—where you can be anything you want to be and do anything you like. But you must be careful…dreaming can be as dangerous as it is seductive.
Rook works as a tracker for Chimera, the agency that tries to police the dream landscape Reve has made possible. He's seeking those like himself with naturally innate talents to enter and control dreams. Rook meets Jordan who only wants to protect her younger sister from harm, but Maisie has been keeping secrets of her own which puts them both in danger. Jordan doesn't know just how much she can trust Rook but can't deny the chemistry between them. Meeting him in a dream is one thing but when he appears in real life, what's Jordan to believe? Is he right and both her and Maisie are in danger or is he the danger!
What an enthralling idea for a series. Being able to delve into the collective consciousness is a powerful image and I have to admit one I find quite disturbing. The possibility for wrong doing is immeasurable as indicated as this story progresses. Not only can anything happen in dreams but those like Rook with a certain gift can actually affect the waking world.
This was quite a short novella and felt a little jumpy to me at first but as the plot began to unravel Ms Kellison clearly got into her stride and things began to flow a lot better. Is it a romance? Well yes, but I thought this short take mainly set the scene for what's to come. A great start and a truly riveting idea. I think this has all the hallmarks of a fabulous and highly addictive series.
