“The boogie man is real, and Cassandra Williams would know—she’s seen him”
Cassandra Williams is a elementary school teacher in Southern California, she is a likeable character and very relatable with her relationships with her family, a potential love interest in Henry and her concerns at starting her new job. All very normal until we then learn that as well as her day job as a teacher Cassandra also moonlights at night as a ‘Dream Weaver’, oh and her father is the ‘Lord of Night’.
This is the first book in the fantasy series, ‘Daughters of Night Chronicles’, by Siddoway and Reyes. I am new to these two authors, and I really enjoyed this fantasy read, with mystery, adventure and a touch of romance thrown in. It is well written, and the authors set the scene with their descriptions, bringing their fantasy world, the ‘Realm of Dreams’ alive. As a Dream Weaver, Cassandra must “collect the dust of dreamers to maintain the illusion between our worlds”.
The storyline had me hooked form page one and follows Cassandra as she learns that Dream Weavers are disappearing and that she maybe next, for in the shadows lurks a demon who wants to prevent Cassandra from leaving the Real of Dreams. Therefore Cassandra must find a way of defeating the ‘Shadow Demon’ and return to her daytime life as a elementary school teacher.
This was a lovely fantasy read, and it was so engaging that it kept me turning the pages well into the night as I was cheering Cassandra on. I look forward to the rest of the series.
