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.

My Thoughts:

The author was kind enough to provide me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Gosh! Where do I even start this book had me on an emotional roller-coaster that I refused to get off of. It was such a good book and unlike anything I have ever read before. Molly is your normal 24 year old until the day she gets struck by lightning and she starts to have the same very vivid dream every night; the dream feels so real to Molly that it’s like she is living a second life. This book was so frigging AH-MA-ZING I need the second one now. E.J's world building was superb, the way she would describe the world Molly would wake up in when she went to sleep was so beautifully done it has me hoping I can go to it when I fall asleep. The Character building Molly goes through is so great she goes through some crazy moments, but as the book progresses she starts to cope with everything so well. Now to the love triangle oh, the love triangle is going to kill me! It is so well written I find myself flip flopping between Dev (The Dream Boy) and Jared (Real World) they are both so great, but when it comes down to it, I think I'm rooting a little harder for Dev he has just made his way into my heart and build a home there. All the characters E.J. Mellow introduced me to where so well written and I immediately fell in love with each one of them.

This book overall is just so greatly written!  As I was reading the book just sucked me in! The story was just amazing and I can't get enough of all the characters and the beautiful world that E.J. has created. I recommend this book to everyone! I absolutely loved it and with the ending I just can’t wait to get my hands on the second one.
