I've always been fascinated by the idea of there being other worlds out there amd have read lots of books on the subject, some of which are good and others a letdown. So when I heard about Dreamwalker from my best friend, I was at the same time excited and cautious. Here we have a story about a girl whose dreamworld intrudes on her real one, which brings her dream-boyfriend into the picture, a handsome, heroic guy who's crazy about her--a guy any girl would envy. There's only one drawback: he has a brother, and his brother isn't so great. In fact, he's the jealous type and also has his eye on her. But unlike his brother, who would do anything to protect her, this guy'd do anything to keep his brother from having her. And to top it all off, when these two come into this world, each looks like the other, which really stirs things up, quickly turning our heroine's waking dream into a nightmare. Full of suspense and tension and inviting all kinds of questions about what's real and what isn't, Dreamwalker is a cool book I've already told other friends about. Maybe it leaves some unanswered questions, but that's okay by me. That just means that, if the writer has a sequel in mind, I'll be standing in line for it. :)

Maria Hooley has crafted a fantasy that grabs you at page one and holds on to you until the end. Misha has always dreamed of Ramsey, his brother Elijah and their world Alturna. Then she and her mother are involved in a terrible accident that throws her into a coma. When she wakes up from the coma she discovers the dream world with Ramsey and Elijah are entering her real world. She no longer knows what is real and what isn't. However, she is sure of one thing, whether in her dream world or the real world, Elijah wants her dead and Ramsey will do anything to try to protect her. The scenes are well described and give you the feeling you are in Misha's world experiencing what she has experienced. This was a really good book. Since it says: Book 1, I look forward to the next in this series.

Dreamwalker is a story that intrigues you from the start and holds you to it's pages from beginning to end. You are thrown immediately into the life of Misha who has dreams, or nightmares depending on how you look at it, about two brothers; one of which loves her, and one who wants her dead. She must struggle between real life and her dream world and decide weather or not to risk her life for the man she loves. Mrs. Hooley does a wonderful job of making this story suspenseful and telling it from a teenage girls point of view. I highly look forward to seeing if there will be a second book and will absolutely be looking forward to Mrs. Hooley's next book! I absolutely recommend this to any lovers of fantasy and romance.

Let me start by saying that when I chose to read this story right behind October Breezes, I didn't really notice or realize that both books were by the same author. So back to back Maria Rachel Hooley reviews was not planned. J That said.. This book sucked me in right away. The idea behind a person dreaming about someone for years before having met them is such an intriguing one to me. I love those types of books where people kind of fall in love from afar. This was sort of like that, except Misha and Ramsey fall in love in their dreams, literally. How interesting is that? I loved Misha as a character. I thought she was a very strong character, especially have come out of a coma. I understood how annoyed and tired she was of people treating her like glass, like if they breathed wrong, she might go back into a coma inexplicably. I also loved Ramsey as a character, as he had an old-world chivalry about him that I thought was charming. He wants to take care of her and keep her safe from Elijah.a truly creepy character. There was actually one scene in the story that made me turn the lights up higher in the room. But it was great! There were only a couple things about the story that made me pause: 1. All the typos and line edit problems. (And when I say line edit problems.I don't mean bad grammar, author-mistake type stuff. I mean type problems.) I'm usually able to overlook this, but the errors were so numerous in the story that it was hard to ignore. 2. Other than that, I wanted to know a little bit more about the circumstances that allowed these three characters to find each other. The reader must accept from the beginning that this is the way it is, but we aren't really given any explanation as to what caused this, how they're communicating, and where the portals come from. I can tell from the ending, though, that there is probably going to be a sequel, so I'm hoping this will be explained further as the story progresses. All in all, this was a pretty entertaining read and really held my interest. I hope I'm right about the sequel!
