Overview

Dream of Me by Quinn Alyson Loftis

From the author who brought you the award winning Grey Wolves and Elfin Series, now brings you a new series based on the human legend, the Sandman. The truth of who and what he is lies between these pages and he is so much more than anyone could have ever imagined.

"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.

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.

I have to say this book was EXCELLENT! I finished the book in 1 day; only putting it down when I had to for work or important life type stuff (kids, bathroom breaks, etc.). I was totally hooked! I am definitely looking forward to book 2! I am so incredibly impressed with how much Quinn’s writing skill has grown over the past few years. She’s always had great ideas for her books, which is why I was hooked from the very beginning with ‘Prince of Wolves’ and I’ve read every single book she’s put out since then, but the flow of the story and the general construction of events etc. has improved a lot and just seems to get better and better with each book. I haven’t been so emotionally affected the way I was by this book since ‘Sacrifice of Love’. I love when a book can pull at my heart in such a real way and make me feel like I’m grieving the loss of someone or celebrating a victory with a close friend, cuz let’s face it, we get pretty connected/attached to these characters. :D I could go on and on. If you have eyeballs, you MUST read this book!

I have to say there where times I was worried the book would take things too far but she wrote this story with class. It's a eye opener on what goes on in our sick world but that there are caring good people still in it. And.....the love story....well it was amazing to.

My definition of a clean romance is no adult situations. So this book ia safe and good for teens on up. There is some intense kissing, similar to Marcia Lynn McClure's novels, but the physical romance doesn't go beyond that. I highly recommend it. I do wish there was a little more to the, maybe an epilogue? Either way, great story!

Many of us grew up hearing the phrase, “Sweet Dreams” and heard all about the Sandman and the magical dust he casts to send dreams. What did you picture? A little guy kind of like an elf? Quinn Loftis’ Sandman is a being who has been around since the creation of time, made by the Creator, himself. He is not angel, but he is well-known among them, even if he has always been a loner. But the night he met Serenity, he no longer wanted an existence alone. Some people are nice, some not, but Serenity has that special gift for caring and helping others, no matter the cost. The more Dair sees of her, the more he wants to know her, but, would it be breaking all the rules? Would she even be able to see him? Would she even like him? When a brilliant young girl, whose life has had so much love and joy suddenly has her world devastated by the death of her parents and must move in with her less than savory aunt, Dair knows she needs protection and with the help of an angel, Serenity is placed directly in her path when young Emma needs her most. As Dair and Serenity find their attraction growing, Dair must come to terms with both his immortality and Serenity’s totally mortal existence. Will the creator allow them time together? How can they save young Emma from the nightmare she is living? There is something special about both Serenity and Emma and their futures are bound together, but only one may survive if the future is to come to pass and there is not enough magic in the Sandman’s dust to change that. Flat out, Quinn Loftis and her latest gem, Dream of Me is just one of those reads that feels like a dream, itself. Beautifully written from the heart of this author, there are moments of happiness, sorrow and love that had me smiling, knowing there really are good people like these characters in a world that has gotten too cold and cynical. Geared to younger readers, thirteen and up, it is a refreshing change to find an author who knows how to create age appropriate magic with her words and to remind us it is okay to believe in things like the Sandman, who just happens to be a handsome hero, and not a little gnome or elf! Low on angst, high on kindness, a great "feel good" read!

Dair Aka Sandman’s was given the assignment to influence Sarah Serenity’s dreams. He was just gonna do his job then move on until he saw her. He began following her every day telling himself that his presence was only for her protection. Even tho Dair was an Immortal his feelings for her grew and intensified. Their Relationship was tested but they held true. She was shot by protecting an innocent but all is not what it seems

The author is clearly a very conservative christian. If you share those views, then you might like this book. Otherwise, I do not recommend it. There are books that thoughtfully explore gender roles in relationships... this is not one of them. The characters actually preach at the reader in their thinly veiled dialogue. I only gave it 3 stars because the concept was novel and the writing decent.

Layout is messed up. All the words are highlighted black if I'm in day mode or white if I'm in night mode. Could quite possibly be opeator error, but I've never had this happen before. Too bad. Seemed promising.

I am very happy to have had the opportunity to read another book by Quinn Loftis. She's one of my favorite author's, so when I found out she was writing a book about the Sandman, I new I had to read it! I'd never read a book about the Sandman before. Of course, I had heard about him, but I knew very little about the legend. I have to say that I really liked Quinn's take on this, and the direction that she went with the story. Dream of Me focuses on two very strong, female characters. Sarah Serenity, is about to finish high school, and wants to move away from her small town and see the world. She's not sure what's she's meant to do with her life, but she is seeking to find her purpose. She's torn, because she is one of the most unselfish and caring people out there, and she always thinks of others first. However, she feels guilty about leaving her aunt and uncle, and others who love and depend on her. Then we have Emma, an eight-year-old genius, whose life is somehow connected to Serenity's. I don't want to give away to much, but I would like to say that I hope that I can one day have as much strength as this child did. Then, we have Brudair (Dair). Oh my goodness. Who knew that the Sandman would be so hot? Not only that, but he was also very wise and kind. I also admired his strength and his dedication; it couldn't have been easy at times. I am so glad that this is a series, as I would really like to know more about him. Raphael. I don't know how I can justly describe him. I must admit that I teared up a couple of times because of his diligence and compassion, and for just being who he was. All I can say is that I hope that we all have a Raphael in our lives. I'd like to think that we do. ;) Dream of Me is a beautiful story about love, kindness, spirituality, and trust. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series, and finding out what happens next!

If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. Dream of Me captured my heart in every single way. I found myself relating to characters and carrying their emotions thru every page. I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Quinn Loftis is the BEST. I could never imagine finding writing that does what she does so well, before I read just one of her books and to see how much better she has become, astounds me! This book literally touches my soul, and I thank God for the amazing talent He blessed this world with whenever He created the inspiration for Dream of Me. Think I'm being dramatic? JUST READ IT!

I received this book from YA Bound Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review. This book is actually quite hard for me to review because there were parts that I really enjoyed and parts that I really didn't. To be clear, I've been a fan of Quinn Loftis' since her Grey Wolves series (I own every one) so I was looking forward to this one. For a start of, the main storyline is of a very religious theme. Although he's not called God but the Creator/Maker, you get the idea. Some of the characters say that they are Christians, some don't. But the theme itself is very prevalent and on every page. On the whole this is a very well written story with insta-love between the main two. I liked them, they were okay but I really liked Emma and Raphael. I looked forward more to their interactions than I did the others. My overall impression of this book is good. Quinn has gone for a different angle and it will work for a lot of people. If you are after a clean although heated Young Adult book with a religious theme, then I think I've got just the book for you. For myself, this is one series of Quinn's that I won't be continuing with.

I hate not finishing a book when I've paid for it, but this is a truly terrible read. I'm 20 pages in, and already hate both characters that have been introduced. Don't waste your time OR money on this drivel .
