Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Mirta Espinola
Dreaming Awake is a paranormal novel filled with romance and a bit of horror and fantasy in which two people are caught between two worlds. Under is the world where demons roam. Life as Theia knows it has changed and something or someone from the past places her father, family, and friends in danger at every corner and what she risks, she can only imagine; but with Haden by her side the outlook seems hopeful. This soon-to-be pop culture hit is representative of what we have come to love in the genre of the paranormal with a teen heartthrob and the object of his affection. Hayes writes in a detailed manner, which keeps readers turning the page. Written with complicated real life teen issues amidst the backdrop of a real world and a fantasy world, love and danger go hand in hand. These element—love, romance, and danger—can be digested and enjoyed in Dreaming Awake. The author takes the reader out of the mundane and drops her into another world; Hayes allows the reader to escape reality. This title is a pure joy to read. Reviewer: Mirta Espinola

This book was so amazing the words i have for the book are undescribeable. The book had all of the twist and turns and romance in all of the right spots and i loved the other perspectives from donny and amelia and of course haden. I wished some things didnt happen but only bercasue i loved all of the characters besides hadens mom but the author knows what she is doing and i trust that if she makes another one it will be even more fantastic than this but i dont know if that is even possible because this book was better than most books i have read even twilight but there are alot of books better than twilight and this is definetly one of them. I hope everyone enjoys the book as much as i did.

This book was such a disappointment. I absolutely LOVED Falling Under. It was such an amazing book with unique characters, an eerie otherworld, and a much appreciated twist of an ending in the young adult paranormal romance genre. I could not put that book down. So naturally when I heard about Dreaming Awake I could not have been more excited! And then I started reading and I just... it was so terrible. Everything I loved about Falling Under was absent in the sequel. It was like reading about different characters completely. If you are like me and loved Falling Under I wouldn't recommend this book at all. Even though I hate loose ends when it comes to series I would much rather just leave Falling Under to itself than lump it together with this book.

I had to know what happened after falling under with Theia and Haden and I was disappointed with this book. All of yhe characters were back and the same as the last book, but Theia wasn't as intuitive. She missed signs that she pointed out to the reader a rediculous amount of times. Also, what I loved about the first book was the dark romantic and magical Under that Theia and Haden shared. There was none if that in this book. The author seemed to rush the dramatic plot through rather than allow us time to be enchanted.

A flash of color. Blood spattered. A cry of "Help!" A cresent moon drenched in blood. A vivid image of his sister, Cresentmoon. A scream that seems to never end. He runs, only to taste blood as he sinks down and down and down.

This long a waited follow up to Falling Under is amazing. Gwen Hayes always delivers. The story line draws you along and the characters are real in their reactions. Some heart break and plenty of action and just the right amount of romance.

Wow! It was so good to be back in Haden & Theia’s world! (Even if part of it is the Underworld) I really missed them & all their loyal & eccentric friends! Things have gotten even stranger & more dangerous for them now that they have both returned to Serendipity Falls. They may have gotten out but they won’t get away so easy. Some of their greatest fears are now chasing them down. Plus Theia is finally getting a better understanding of why it’s so hard for Haden to control his darker side because now she is suffering through the same problem. I spent a lot of time wondering how on earth (or in hell) they could manage to get through all of this! There were several shocking discoveries & some heartbreaking moments but it all added up to a fascinating sequel!

Falling Under was the first book in the series. Dreaming Awake, was to me,just as wonderful. This book is full of suprises.I read it in 1 day. I can't wait. Gwen Hayes makes some very believeable characters who are honest, vulnerable, loveable, and humanlike meaning they make mistakes.I am soooo excited for the sequel. Hurray!!!

Falling Under was one of the best books I read last year. It was a haunting, lyrical story that stayed with me for long after I'd read the last page. Needless to say, I was extremely excited for the release of Dreaming Awake-- until I began reading it & that excitement quickly turned to disappointment. None of the magic I found while reading Falling Under was evident in this book. I actually wondered at times if it was somehow written by someone other than the author of Falling Under, it was that different.

I didn't know what to expect when I picked up this book. I feared the sequel would be over done and effectively ruin the overall story of Theia and Haden. However, Dreamin Awake was well done with plot twists that captivate and keep your interest. There were slow moments and I did not particularly like Donna or Amelia's POVs; I could've done without them. All in all, the story was an interesting and easy read.

I just want to scream out to the world how much I loved this book! There is so much more to the story now that it just fills me with great joy! So the book picks up where the first book left off and the reader is off to Under. The plot line is so much more intense as more secrets, betrayals unfold before the reader. It didn't take long for me to fall into the plot of this book. I loved the way everything is strained in the book that it keeps the reader entice to read more. The love interest is strained. I love it when the love between characters becomes strained cause it gives a much greater affect when they finally fall into each other arms. I think I scream for delight when Haden put his foot down. I loved that their love has conquered so much already!! Ms. Hayes created amazing characters with an dynamic plot giving the reader one amazing ride! What I also enjoyed about this book are the great surprises! There were a few plot twist that left my mouth hanging. I LOVE it when an author can take me by surprise! Some were good others where bad but in the end, Ms. Hayes crossed all her t's and dotted her i's well. Nothing is confusing and if anything Dreaming Awake leave you begging for more! So GO and pick up this book! It's will give you biog smile on your face! With great writing and an enticing plot, Dreaming Awake is an fantastic read!
