Nora has faced the horrors of the Nightmare Realm and put a stop to the Weaver. But the girl that went in isn’t the same one who has come out. Now, as the Lady of Nightmares, Nora’s next passage to the Night World will be permanent. Months in the Day World have already taken their toll on her new identity. Her body aches from the strain of magic and her mind is tormented by a powerful darkness. The only thing holding her together is the thought of returning to the place that beckons her as much as it terrifies her.

The Sandman knows Nora needs to return to her realm, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it. Especially when he sees firsthand what happened in the Nightmare Realm since she left. Not only have the nightmares become restless, but Rowan stole the Weaver’s Keep and is gathering an army strong enough to rip the magic from Nora so she can dominate the realm. If the Sandman can put off the inevitable for a few more days, he will.

When Nora finds her own way back to the Nightmare Realm, her relationship with the Sandman stretches thin, but there isn’t time to dwell on hurt feelings. Not when she’s delivered straight to Kail, the masked nightmare that got her into this mess. Unfortunately, her allies are too few and Kail’s desire for Rowan’s death seems to burn as brightly as her own. Nora must decide whom to trust if she wants to survive the Nightmare Realm. And, if she wants to reclaim what’s hers, she must embrace the darkness within.




My Thoughts

Absolutely loved the sequel to Dream Keeper! It had me turning pages faster than the first.

There is no wasting time as we pick up where we left off, and Nora is trying to come into her own. I loved seeing the struggle between the power and ruling over her minions, but she’s not a force to be reckoned with.

The characters developed wonderfully, and some of my personal favorites receive more air time AHEM KAIL..AHEM…

Duell created an epic world in the Nightmare Realm, and breathed life into it, as well. Hands down my favorite part of the entire series was the Nightmare Realm!

Thoroughly enjoyed this! Definitely recommend if you loved the first… this will blow the first out of the water.
