Agent Malcolm Rook hunts for people with the rarest of talents—the ability to master dreams. He finds the undeniably gifted Jordan Lane, but she’s wary of mysterious Rook and resists his pursuit as long as she can. When the dreamwaters they enter are too exhilarating to resist, their attraction explodes into passion. But delving too deep stirs a nightmare—one they must defeat together, or be forever lost to darkness.
Fans of paranormal romance and bad boys, get ready for a dark, sexy plunge into fantasy and desire. The Reveler Series is set in a contemporary world in which people can indulge in Rêve, or shared dreaming—a pop culture phenomenon sweeping the world. Imagine being able to fall asleep at night, only to wake in a dream world, one in which you are lucid and in control—where you can be anything you want to be and do anything you like. But you must be careful…dreaming can be as dangerous as it is seductive.
Darkness Falls in the first novella of the Reveler series, Darkness Falls, from Erin Kellison and I loved this first book to a new series from Erin. Erin created a storyline I have never read before, and it intrigued me the minute I started reading Darkness Falls.
Imagine going into a dream world. where you have control over the lucidity of it and control of what you want to be and do anything you like in the dream world. Although, sometimes those dreams can be dangerous at times if you let your dreams run haywire or it can be very seductive and addicting.
You have a sexy specimen like Michael Rook in your dreams that is trying to recruit you if you have a rare talent for his team, the Chimera is looking for. In comes Jordan, who doesn’t want to be apart of the policing the Rêves. She’s only doing it for her sister. She has no clue that she has a rare talent until she comes into danger with another group that wants to recruit her.
Some things I adored about this first novella in this new series is how Erin introduced the world and the characters so far. I loved Michael due to his character always saying some stuff about himself that definitely was not true. He was hard on himself, but he had reasons why he was hard on himself. He had something happen that changed his world. Then there’s Jordan who was clueless on everything, but I liked how she was protective of herself and her sister.
I was a little confused at first on the beginning, but after I got a better explanation about the Rêves, I was able to follow along better. Like I said, this was a different kind of PNR that involves something I have never read before, which is why I’m intrigued with it.
I give this book 4.5 moons, and recommend it to readers of the PNR genre and readers who are looking for something different. It’s a novella, which means it won’t take long to read. I had to sneak it in whenever my youngest was napping, and my oldest was preoccupied with reading her own books or playing video games. (It’s summer time…which means this Book Lovin’ Mama needs to hide to read)
