Set in America, Dream Eater follows college student Koi Pierce as she attempts to get her life in order. This tale follows the tradition of supernatural powers in young women, whereby the power reaches its maturity with the onset of adolescence.
A unique mystery lies at the heart of an action-packed plot line. New friends and foes reveal themselves, pushing a naturally introverted Koi to her limit. I identified with Koi on various levels; I am also an introvert and have always felt like an outsider in life. I found Koi to be a plucky and quick-witted heroine that still retained her humility and sensitive qualities that made her her own person. The story progressed well with scenes unfolding at a brisk pace that kept my attention throughout. Koi's first person narration was well constructed and gave me a more intimate perspective of her issues. A classic tale of good vs evil, rooted in Japanese mythology. A harrowing and nail biting ride of a read. Rated 5 stars!
After being kicked out of her last high school, Paloma finds herself stuck in a convent/boarding school where nuns teach more than just biology and languages. Cruelty runs amock, but not everything (or indeed everyone) is as it seems.
I found this to be a chilling read full of unique mysteries that spiraled together, forming a complete picture at the very end. It's hard to tell who can be trusted in this YA Paranormal journey. Can Paloma trust her own mind when things start to look bleak? I wasn't sure of the answer at first.
True deception is an art form, as I soon found out through reading Chameleon. As the saying goes, keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
Recommended for lovers of the paranormal and abnormal psychology. Rated 5 stars.
Set in Maine, USA, comes the tale of young Daciana (Dacie to friends), a sixteen year old with a unique and somewhat disturbing ability. Having just moved from California, Dacie is portrayed as an initially shy yet rebellious character, who pushes others away. As we learn more about her past, we begin to understand why.
This novel is a wonderful start to a series where secrets, teamwork and loss combine. The characters are a breath of fresh air and each have a distinct personality. You get a strong feel for Dacie's character through her story narration. She proves to be a determined individual that will do all she can to fix her mistakes.
I would recommend this to lovers of Paranormal and Fantasy novels. Highly addictive. Rated 5/5 stars.
