Glory St. Pierre never thought so many lies could hold so much truth, especially when her entire life has been one of those lies. Now that she knows who she really is, she must find a way to come to terms with it before the Djinn sorcerer Rasputin and his steel army descend down upon the human and Djinn realms, wielding magic so dark even her own Djinn lover, Irving, is wary of it.
Their only hope to save the realms are a couple of hunters and the Lords of the Djinn Order, four powerful Djinn who have remained elusive for centuries. Armed with her only granted wish, a fabulous airship, and the Djinn she loves by her side, Glory will embark on a quest to find the four lords and enlist their help. But there is a reason the lords have been in hiding, and once this tiny band of adventurers awakens them from their slumber, they will set off a chain of events that has been in the making since the beginning of time.
There is no turning back now.
Oh my god! Dream of Me was freaking awesome! Of course I wasn’t expecting anything less but I’m still amazed at the turn this book took. I loved it and finished in pretty much one sitting!
In this book, Glory is still trying to come to terms with everything she discovered in the first book, with herself being the daughter of Rasputin and her mother being a fierce Djinn hunter and everything else in between. To stop Rasputin she, Irving, her mother and aunt are going on a quest to find the Lord of the Djinn order, their only hope to save everyone.
Glory is still her feisty self, only she now knows who she really is. She still hasn’t forgiven her family for keeping such a huge secret from her. I think Glory is a fantastic character but sometimes I wanted to smack some sense into her because of the decisions she made, although at the time she didn’t knew they’d turn out bad. She also had some issues defining her relationship with Irving, which has its ups and down. I still love them to bits and pieces together, though.
And Irving? What can I say about him that isn’t obvious already. I love his devotion to Glory and his need to protect her, but also his kingdom. He’s one of my favorite book boyfriends ever. I adore him.
Some parts of this book really blew my mind. Especially the end. I really didn’t see that one coming. The author, A. Star, really has a knack with writing surprising twists that make me exclaim out loud. Seriously. I also still love the steampunk aspect. It’s all pretty genius and wonderful world-building.
Overal, Dream of Me by A. Star was amazing! Even more so than the first book, in my opinion. I’m also really excited for the next instalment in the series, with the way things ending. I can’t wait!
A. Star is a fan of dirty passion. She loves to read it, and she damn sure loves to write it. She is the author of the Mythos: Gods & Lovers series and the Djinn Order series. She is a night-owl and a coffee junkie, and the only sneaker she would be caught dead wearing are Converses.
