My name is Taylor, and damn but my life changed overnight. One moment I was just a regular girl working two jobs to pay my bills, and next thing you know, I'm uncovering secret metal disks at my boss's house. Now I'm reading minds, dream-walking and being saved from bad guys by Mr. Dark and Brooding.

That would be Ryder Langston, my new next-door neighbor. He's sex on legs but he's also a secret agent from another world—no joke. I believe him now because he dragged me back here "for my protection" after he discovered someone was trying to assassinate me on Earth. It isn't working out so well.

There's a war going on, one that's been fought for generations. Ryder's having trust issues (not that it's stopping us from falling into bed), and it turns out I'm connected here, if you know what I mean. The target on my back finally makes sense, but there's nowhere left to hide…

~ 4 Dream Stars ~  Quicksilver Dreams is book one in Danube Adele’s Dreamwalkers series. I read book two Dark Summer Dreams first and from that decided I need to pick up the other books in the series. You can read the books out of order. We get lots of action, conflict, romance and a roller coaster of emotions.  Taylor is a strong women and easy to relate too. Very well developed character that can stand on her own. I liked Taylor! Ryder sexy neighbor next door. He is another well developed character that is very determined to protect his people. I liked Ryder! Quicksilver Dreams has a fabulous cast of characters that are well written and easy to connect to. Even the secondary characters are intriguing thou the main focus is the plot and Taylor/Ryder. Ms. Adele does an amazing job of taking us on an emotional roller coaster ride, one minute we are in tears the next we are sexually frustrated. The chemistry between Taylor and Ryder is fabulous. The dreams that Taylor has of her mystery lover worked well in this book. I liked how the author brought Taylor and Ryder together. They are pretty much thrown together after someone try’s to assassinate Taylor. The conflicts these two go through where emotional and well done. I liked the struggle Ryder has with his devotion to protect his people and having such strong feelings for Taylor and then too see Taylor stand up for herself and not give in to the stuff Ryder did to her was great. The author also gives us some amazing hot sizzling sex scenes, but we also have trust issues which give’s us plenty of conflict between our leads. The plot is well development and mind blowing. I would have liked more world building of the plant Te’re in this book, but it’s ok because we do get a lot of world building of Te’re in Dark Summer Dreams, so it even’s out. A fantastic fabulous fun read in the Dreamwalkers series. If you enjoy Sci-Fi Romance then I highly suggest you pick this series up. Even if you are not a fan of Sci-Fi this series might just change your mind.

Quicksilver Dreams. Danube Adele Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews. When I started this I was quickly hooked, and I thought it was going to be one I’d vote a five star for. Taylor is a great lead, feels so real and I felt I understood her – she'd struggled, and yet still retained her kindness in her fight for a better life than the one she'd had. That makes so many people hard and yet Taylor had a genuine kindness to her – I felt she's someone that could easily be a friend. I need to like my lead characters and Taylor was perfect. Then in came Ryder – wow- I could see just how she felt as she did about him, though he had some strange, almost throwback ideas, about women and clothes etc. Danube style of writing was easy to follow and led smoothly from one part to the next, keeping me clear about what was happening. I hate being left “in the dark” when things happen that haven't been explained, and reader has to pick up as story continues. That doesn't mean reader is spoon fed here, just that what's happening fits with expected plots. When she finds the metal I was “oh, where's this going to lead ?” and for a while it was fine. There was action and danger, all as I expected and then...Ryder takes her to his home planet. That's where it began to fall down for me. There was so much information, and descriptions of everything that I just failed to take much in. I was just wondering why she didn't have more questions, especially when someone she knows well enters the scene. She seemed the sort who'd be more curious, and TBH this part felt to me very YA, but with erotic sex thrown in to spice things up – strange planet, battles and heroes, mental voices and of course the dream-walking, it was all a kind of overload. The dream-walking part was fine in itself, and proved a good vehicle to explain things without overloading the reader with other info, but coupled with the rest I just lost the thread for a bit. It seemed Taylor was on a switchback ride, enemy to saviour to enemy, lover to traitor to lover, just too much in a short space with little other action to moderate that influence. Coming back to Earth I felt it regained some of that speciality I felt on first beginning the book. Ryder was still the control freak but sensuous lover hottie, but he and Taylor needed some serious time to work things out – the action though didn't give them that. I'm assuming this is part of a series as there's certainly scope for lots more from them, and the battle over mylunate, Taylor and Ryders relationship and Taylor's heritage. I hope so anyway – I think this is a good start, even though I lost in a bit in the middle. Stars: three and a half. ARC supplied by Netgalley
