Review: Dark Summer Dreams by Danube Adele

Check out my review of Quicksilver Dreams (Dreamwalkers #1) “I felt him second guessing himself as he turned back around, and I actually had a moment when I wanted to giggle. Served him right. He was a great big brute, and he deserved every bit of discomfort I could level at him.” I enjoyed the first novel, Quicksilver Dreams, and I wanted to see what happened with the plot line that runs through the series. Dark Summer Dreams follows Ryder’s sister, Shandria, instead of him. That’s the first thing that shocked me. Honestly, after finishing the first novel, I never expected the second book just to jump to completely different characters. So I went into this novel a bit apprehensively, but still wanting to find out what happened with the on-going plot. Dark Summer Dreams had a slow start. And by slow, I mean really slow. It took me days to get through the first quarter of the novel. It was all building up to the interesting parts, I guess, but it was pretty difficult for me to get through. This in itself was a shock because the previous novel started rolling from the beginning. About half-way through, things started picking up. Then it was easier to stay with and the plot actually went pretty well. There were things that you could predict would happen so I wasn’t really surprised […]

“Life is so weird. You just never know what the next day is going to bring.” “He really and truly needed me. Me. This big, powerful warrior wanted me.” Okay honestly? Because it’s an alien book. You don’t get too many of those now-a-days, and it just sounded interesting. It had secret agents and aliens. What more can you ask for? Quicksilver Dreams was filled to the brim with action and danger. Lots of things went on in this novel, ranging from evil aliens trying to kill Taylor, from Taylor and Ryder fighting their attraction, to Ryder being iffy about Taylor because he thinks she’s a traitor. There was definitely never a dull moment in this novel. “His light eyes bore into mine. I could see the puffiness of his lip, as well as a dried fleck of blood. I’d done that? For a moment I stared at the evidence, in awe of myself. I truly was a badass. Then I confused myself because I also wanted to kiss it better. I never said I was consistent.” Taylor was our female protagonist, an almost-adult making her way in life in Hollywood. She’s escaped and come from nothing, and she does anything and everything she needs to to make sure she’s independent. She really took the things that were thrown at her in this novel well, proving how tough-minded she was. […]
