    BOOK REVIEW:

    As a reader of his other novel "The Ocean and the Hourglass", I knew I would be in for another good surprise! What I found was a great plot with an amazing cast of characters.

    Alexander Marlowe, an ex-cop who uses his visor that connects him to the existing network that runs the city and is worn by all, but he doesn't like it. Most of the surviving humans after the Water Rights War have all inhabited the city and it's a utopia society - or so they would have everyone think. All of the citizens of Orion use the visors as their main link to everything, but little do they know how much Cerulean Dreams controls them while their visors are on!

    Alexander Marlowe is an investigator - used to be cop. He watches the news and knows that young blonde girls are disappearing but no one seems to care. He takes it upon himself to investigate what is happening which leads him to Dana, a woman who technically is off of the grid. She tells him the Lurking are coming to get her and she refuses to go. Marlowe's visor malfunctions and he soon finds himself a wanted man - wanted for the murder of the young girls who have disappeared. He now also sees through his visor manifestations of ghosts and other phenomena gliding around the rooms, buildings, and city streets. He knows that the government is behind another project called "The Lurking", and why he is a wanted man, but does not know how to uncover the corruption within the Cerulean Dreams project.

    Dana urges Marlowe that they must leave Orion, the city but Marlowe believes they won't exist outside of its walls. All that is out there is desert but Dana beseeches him. If they stay, they die. If they go, they die, but she is sure that once the Truth is revealed, it will explain everything. If you want to find out what happens, then read Cerulean Dreams by Dan O'Brien and find out how it ends!

    This book has a great storyline that somewhat reminds me of Blade Runner in a futuristic land of corrupt governmental politicians and technology that runs the world. I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars for it's writing content is good, but sometimes I found myself a little confused within the story itself and had to go back a few times to see what I missed. Cerulean Dreams is still a great read for the Sci-Fi futuristic genre readers out there!

    I received Cerulean Dreams compliments of the author for my honest opinion and must say I can't wait to read more by Dan. This is my second book and he definitely has a unique way to take his readers on an unexpected journey.
