Nightmare Dilemma is the second book in the Arkwell Academy trilogy. It’s a young adult fantasy novel about a girl, Dusty, who is a Nightmare. She literally feeds off of other people’s dreams. Her and her dream-seeing partner, Eli are called upon again to solve a mystery at their school of other paranormals. Dusty are able to see the future while in Eli’s dreams. My feelings about this book are pretty much the same as my feelings about the first book, The Nightmare Affair. It was a really cool idea about Nightmares being actual creatures. I guess I was hoping for it to be a little bit darker. The Nightmares should have been creepier, not happy-go-lucky. There were also so many things in this book that seemed way too close to Harry Potter. For instance, the bad guy from the first book comes back to life, but in a different form. Why can’t the bad guys just die?! There are also the bad guy professors who keep getting replaced by other bad guy professors. You can read the rest of my review here:

I’ve missed Dusty, Eli and Selene so much. They are a group of great friends, and have each others’ backs no matter what. Nightmare Dilemma picks up not long after the events in Nightmare Affair. I love that we get a small little recap. Dusty grows so much in this book. She deals with things that scare her but she knows she’s the only one that can go through with them. We also get a little more detail about her feelings toward Eli. He’s just an awesome person. There is a ton of mystery, and I didn’t see the culprit coming at all. I can usually figure out who the bad guy is pretty early on. Arnett surprised me, and I loved it! There’s definitely some romance going on, and it of course messes with emotions. This is one series that I want there to be more of!

The Nightmare Dilemma is the second book in The Arkwell Academy series by Mindee Arnett. Luckily enough this book doesn't suffer from the Sophomore Syndrome of being a filler book, instead it is as fresh and exciting as the debut novel that started this well developed and fantastic series off. Catching up with our favorite characters: Dusty, Eli and Selene, who have had a quiet spell with no drama at all, until their friend Britney is attacked, and they find themselves amidst all the goings on. Dusty and Eli are enlisted to try and discover the attacker in their shared dreams but whilst trying Dusty discovers that she has a block in her dream state which passes over into Eli's, and it won't go away until she can figure out what it's trying to tell her, frustrated not only by the fact that she can't help and the attacker has gotten away with the crime until she fixes this problem, she is growing more atttracted to Eli as the days go by, but every time they get close Eli pulls away and she can't understand why. She is also shocked to be told that her ex-boyfriend Paul has been cleared of all charges and that he'll be returning to school, if that wasn't bad enough she's asked by Lady Elaine and  Sheriff Brackenberry to get close to Paul to spy on him and watch out for any suspicious behaviour on his part. Quite a few characters from the previous book make appearances, one in particular that I was most excited about Moira, Dusty's Mom and a character I would love to read more about, I'd love a prequel series based on her life when she was younger, with her reputation I'm sure it would be entertaining Choc-full of action, adventure, mystery and fun this was an exciting addition to this series, I can't wait for the next instalment to see what the gang get's up to next, fingers crossed that Dusty and Eli can find a way to be together. Thouroughly enjoyable, Mindee has written another ripper of a novel, sure to keep your eyes glued to the pages.
