synopsis

Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially the one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals.

The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But what’s really scaring Liv is that the dream boys seem to know things about her in real life, things they couldn’t possibly know–unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute….


thoughts

World-Building Splendor
I love the world building in this book. I could imagine all the locations that appeared in this book, but what’s more is the dream world. I loved how the dream world was built and how it could be manipulated and changed. It was very well thought out and expertly implemented.

Character Growth
I was so excited to watch the main character change throughout the book. Too many characters don’t change. Others change too fast, but this particular character had a smooth transition into a new person and showed adaptability. It matched the story line well and allowed for story growth, too.

Dash of Romance
I’m not big on romance in novels, especially when it’s the main plot, which it often becomes even if non-romance novels. Even so, I quite enjoyed the romance in this novel. It developed at a reasonable pace and wasn’t overpowering of the main plot. It was even down right cute at times. ^.^
