This is an exquisitely unique book and I was mesmerized. The thought process that came up with this Dreamer’s intricate world is special. The relationships between the major characters were fluid and I could not decide which world I wanted the Dreamer to remain in. Moving back and forth became unbearable for both the main character and her friends and family. It also was a source of unease for this reader. I think this is a most fascinating book. However, I wish that I had known it is a series when I began. I might have been better prepared when it ended. I was pulled deep into the story and I was experiencing all of the same emotions as Molly. I wanted to continue to the conclusion. I have already bought the next installment. I cannot wait to see where Mellow will take me next!! Please do yourself a favor and get this book. It will make you think and feel and isn’t that what a good book does? Very Highly Recommended

It’s night. Always night. Dreams guard against the evil forged by nightmares. Infinite shooting stars illuminate a moonless sky. A city stands alone, surrounded by a darkened field. On its fringes, a man watches one star separate from the masses and fall. What survives the crash will unveil a secret centuries long hidden.
Molly hasn’t slept well since the night of her twenty-fourth birthday. Being struck by lightning might have something to do with it, but then again, her chicken did look a little undercooked at dinner. Whatever the culprit, her life quickly catapults from mundane to insane as, night after night, Molly is transported through her once dreamless sleep to a mysterious land illuminated by shooting stars.
There she meets the captivating but frustrating Dev, and together they discover Molly possesses a power coveted by his people—the ability to conjure almost anything she desires into existence. Seduced by the possibilities of this gift, Molly shifts her attention from waking life toward the man, the magic, and the world found in her dreams.
But Molly must ask herself—does something truly exist if you only see it when you close your eyes?
Faced with the threat of losing everything—her job, best friend, boyfriend, and most importantly, that little thing called her sanity—Molly will learn just how far she’ll go to uncover what is real and what is merely a figment of her imagination.
