A Legendary Spellbook. Everyone desires it, but he controls it.
The most feared mercenary in the New Realms, Merc takes what he thinks is a routine job – guarding a magic spellbook until a secret auction takes place, one where only the most powerful and influential will have the opportunity to bid. But one moment of carelessness makes this job the most personal he has ever had, and if that wasn’t enough, his dreams are being invaded by a woman who his every instinct warns is trouble, but he can’t stop wanting.
A Legendary Power. Everyone covets it, but can she master it?
One moment of terror took away Amana’s security and her brother’s freedom. Now her life is doing whatever she must to survive, all the while trying to find the way to release her brother from prison. Her answer comes in an offer from the Guild, but the cost is high – using a power she has kept locked away on a man who terrifies her even as he fascinates her.
As the auction draws ever closer, Merc and Amana are drawn into a game of cat-and-mouse, captor and captive as they battle for control, even as they work together to thwart the various factions who are willing to do anything to collect the spellbook for themselves. While grudging respect and mutual desire begin to shape their relationship, in the end, only one can prevail. What will be the ultimate decision, when the price of victory means the end to the other’s dearest dream
The Dream Crafter by Danielle Monsch
Merc has a spellbook and lots of people want it. Somehow a bottom feeder, Hadrien has spelled Merc to deliver the book to him or Merc will die. The Guild wants the book so bad they will even let Amana’s brother free if she helps them get it. I’m sure you get the point, its powerful and those who covet power want it.
Amana is a dream crafter and the guild has solicited Amana to use her abilities to obtain the book from a mercenary. It just so happens that the mercenary in question is the same man she has been slowly falling in love with in her dreams already. Who said that fate isn’t fickle? Dream crafters can actually change reality within a dream so it makes Amana a pretty powerful being herself, if she obtains the book in Merc’s dreams then the man she is coming to love will die.
The problem is, once Amana’s abilities are made known, the power hungry want her too. For years any Dream Crafter has been eliminated because they feared their power equals the gods.
Starting this series at book 3 didn’t inhibit my enjoyment of The Dream Crafter in any way. Although after reading Merc’s and Amana’s, I would absolutely recommend any of Danielle Monsch storytelling and starting this series at the beginning.
Monsch creates a rich world of magic, mystery and power to envelop the reader. I really enjoyed Merc’s and Amana’s dream/relationship as well has their ability to grow and transform for each other.
I received this copy of The Dream Crafter from Danielle Monsch in exchange for a honest review.
