“In the evening… [he] blows softly upon their necks, till their heads begin to droop. […] Under each arm he carries an umbrella; one of them, with pictures on the inside, he spreads over the good children, and then they dream the most beautiful stories the whole night.” ~ Hans Christian Anderson
Since the dawn of time, Brudair, otherwise known as the Sandman to the world, has faithfully lived out his purpose, faithfully performed his duties. He has never questioned his lot among the immortals, until now, until her. Sarah Serenity Tillman, a consummate beauty both inside and out, is a high school senior five months from her graduation. She has great plans, dreams of leaving the small town of her childhood behind her forever. But destiny has other plans, and it’s the Sandman’s job to make sure those plans are fulfilled.
The tall muscular Sandman, known as Dair to his friends, dressed in black, wrapped in shadows, is more than a myth. And he has a job to do. His very existence makes him a creature of the night, because dreams, (yes the legends got that part right), were indeed his specialty. But his purpose was more than just weaving dreams for sleeping children. No, his dreams were made to influence, made to ensure that certain special individuals, those individuals who would change the course of history, actually accepted their chosen destiny.
Little does Serenity know that she is Dair’s next assignment. And the dream that he weaves for her, if she follows its influence, will change the course of, not only her life, but possibly the whole of history as well. But she isn’t the only one being influenced. The beauty inside of her was weighing on the Sandman, lighting up the darkness that was his constant companion. Her light was warmth, it was life, and he didn’t understand how he had survived the previous millennia without it.
The Sandman was indeed greater than anything humans had ever imagined, and his purpose was vital to the course of history. So what happens when the weaver of dreams gets so distracted by a mere human that he ignores his own duties in the immortal realm? How can an immortal who was never meant to have a mate, join a young woman in her destiny without irrevocably changing the lives of millions and potentially altering history in a way the Creator never intended?
“Dream of me, Princess,” Dair whispered into her ear.
“Then weave me a dream, Sandman,” she said softly. “And we can dream together.”
As her eyes grew heavy, she heard Dair’s voice telling her to sleep, to open her mind to him and let him in. I’m all yours, she thought as sleep finally claimed her.
Love it! Mr. Sandman You are a dream!
I find it hard to believe, but I have a new favorite Quinn Loftis book. Don't get me wrong, I have loved every book she has written, but The Grey Wolves Series has held my heart for nearly 3 years now. It is still very close, but Fate and Fury (my previous favorite) has been replaced by Dream of Me.
Quinn has grown, leaps and bounds as a writer since she released Prince of Wolves, and it is so very apparent in this book.
What I liked: The concept. We've all heard of The Sandman. He is either someone you are singing to for a special dream or he is the reason you wake up with crusties in your eyes. I have never thought much about him, or even imagined for a moment he would think of love. The idea intrigued me, and for me, the book did not fail to deliver entertainment, as well as the possibilities of a being I have thought so little on.
What I didn't like: I have no complaints.
Would I recommend this book? Definitely! Remember - it is book 1 of a new series, so you will not get all the answers you want, but it is a great read.
Quin did it again! Great book. A wonderful twist to the Sandman mythology! As always the characters are likeable and believable. This book is not only about the love story between the Sandman and Serenity. It incorporates religious elements without preaching. A father-daughter like relationship folds between a little 8 yrs old genius called Emma and her guardian angel Raphael.while the bond between all the characters is weaved and strengthen as the story goes by. This book will make you smile, will make you cry and best of all will make you fall in love with each of the characters. I can't wait for the next book!
Good, but one thing
It's okay but the whole gender roles thing pisses me off, women's roles were not skewed by feminism. If you literally knew anything about prehistoric times, you would know that women were considered equal to men, and sometimes even superior to men. The women were the main providers, the agriculture revolution is what gave us our patriarchal society, that's not how it was "meant" to be.
