Overview

When seventeen-year-old Dulcee Elders' mother embarks on a road trip from their home in California, Dulcee knows something odd is about to happen. Her suspicions are confirmed when they arrive at Uncle Jack's house outside of Durango, Colorado. Without another word, Dulcee's mother is gone, and Dulcee faces life with her reclusive and wealthy uncle in a looming rural mansion.

Dulcee has suffered from insomnia ever since her father died more than ten years ago. But once at home at Uncle Jack's, inexplicably Dulcee now can sleep; sleep brings not only strange and intricate dreams, but a dream lover. For now, Vincent Sands is only the silhouette of a man, but when Uncle Jack leaves town for business, Dulcee's dream world and reality collide. Once she is alone, the silhouette is no longer content to remain only in her dreams.

When Dulcee is asleep, Vincent can give her anything she wants, even the ability to talk to her dead father. Inevitably, Vincent must leave when Uncle Jack returns. Dulcee experiences the high price of loving Vincent-an addiction rivaling that of any hard-core drug. Desperate to bridge the gap between them, Dulcee faces a crucial decision that carries irreversible consequences.

A fresh new voice among the mundane. The end had my jaw dropping. I hope the author writes a sequel. Anyone looking for something different look no further.

Completly, utterly breathtaking! I loved every single word.

The story pulls you in and will stay with you long after you've read it. I thought of many possible scenarios for the shocking conclusion, but none of the things I dreamed up as possibilities came close to what actually happened. The plot is definitely original, and not transparent at all. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I didn't personally like the ending, or certain characters after I had read the ending. To be fair, though, the ending is brilliant. Just not to my taste. Get your hands on anything you can written by this author. She can really write, and another book of hers I read is totally different yet equally wonderful. I hope she publishes more soon, and why in the world hasn't everyone heard of this author?

There were parts of this book that were great. I did not like it as a whole though. Very unsettling.
