Review - Only In Her Dreams

Only in Her Dreams
Book One of the Oneiroi Series
Christina McKnight
Release date: September 30, 2012


When Lucessa Sarcona awakes from a recurring dream, she has no idea her life is about to be turned upside down. A stranger, familiar to her dreams, shows up in the flesh, and Lucessa knows she’s either crazy or experiencing something not of this world.

A war ensues between three demigod brothers.  One, trained to rule Erebos, is violently replaced. One forced to return to his homeland and lead the dream-gods of the Oneiroi. And one is charged with the impossible task of protecting Lucessa. How is she linked to the Oneiroi? Why do two brothers seek to keep her hidden and protected? And how does another plan to use her against the two demigods who love her?

Will Lucessa’s dream man have the courage to claim her as his own or will he bow to the command of another, forsaking the one he loves?

Only in Her Dreams is a modern spin on a Greek legend--the new direction of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, moving from angels, demons, vampires, and witches and toward the realm of demigods.

My review

I have always loved Greek mythology and thought this was a great spin on it.  We get to meet new characters and see some classics like Zeus, Hera and Hades.

 The Oneiroi are like dream walkers.  They can visit the human plane and enter into the dreams of mortals.  Lucessa has had a dream visitor for a long time.  He is always there watching out for her while she relives memories of when her father and mother were both around.  

It isnt until one day when she sees him in person that she started to wonder if she is going crazy or he is real and not a figmant of her imagination and something odd is going on.

This is where the story really starts moving.  We find out about her father and his role in what is going on and we find out more about her mystious dream visitor and his twin bother and role in what has happened and is happening to her.

There is a lot of moving, a lot of events and revelations that we follow along on and learn with Lucessa.  These events along with cameo appearances by Zeus, Hera and Hades all come together to make a interesting and enjoyable story to read.
