Overview

The world Darkside is in turmoil when Chimera Marshal Steve Coll, bloody and beaten, makes it back to Maze City and into Maisie's arms. He bears a terrible message--The Sandman, the god of the world of dreams, is rising, and he's bringing devastation to the waking world. Steve must embrace his dual nature to save those he's sworn to protect. And yet, how can he fight a being who destroys everything in his path?

Even awake, no one is safe.

After the fall of the black market, Maisie Lane's city is overrun with criminals who want her dreamscape for their own. She's always envisioned Maze City populated, but not with people like these. Nevertheless, she must relinquish some of her control not only to save the man she loves, but to protect and defend her precious city. While friends and family face danger and betrayal, another enemy is lurking in the shadows.

As time runs out, Maisie and Steve must fight with everything they have, or lose it all, including each other. And even if they somehow prevail, nothing will ever be the same.

The Sandman is the seventh installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well.

Revel with me.

The Sandman:  The Revelers bk 7 by Erin Kellison In this one we start in Maze City, Steve Coll just walked in from the Scape, and attacked by the refugees from the Black Market because he looked like a Nightmare.  Harlen, Rook and Sera were able to pull them off him and Maisie was able to get him to safety deep inside the City with Rook’s help. From here our hero and heroine’s just get deeper and deeper into trouble as the Sandman rises to the waking world.   Jordan was in the Agora following the one band that supposedly backs the Oneiros, only to find out that Noah, the lead singer, is hybrid and controls others Darkside.  He influences and controls minds.  Finally she gets away from him and wakes up, only to find that Senator Fleight has invaded their safe house, Sera is bleeding from a wound to her torso and everyone is being taken back to Chimera headquarters. She bargains with the senator to corporate if the let Garry Fawkes to the hospital with Sera. Steve Coll wakes up in a Reveler’s Care Center, he figures out quickly that it is controlled by the Oneiro’s, and let’s them think he is still asleep, until he can’t anymore, then he gets up and tries to hid until Sera can get to him, not knowing that she is in a hospital fighting for her life, and discovers Dieter Lambert’s room, where the Nightmares are congaing. Then Dieter Lambert’s eyes open, except is not him, it is the Sandman, he has risen. Maisie is fighting for her City, with all the Black Market people needing a new place to do business, and then Noah finds her City, having retrieved it out of Jordan’s memory.  He wants the city too.  What Maisie wants to do is wake up and dump them all into the Scrape, but she can’t do that because her friends are there, so fight she must. This story started out very strong, then seemed to move a little slower.  I understand why as all the pieces fit together, or came apart as the story progressed.  Ms. Kellison wove the waking world and Darkside together so well, you wondered if this wasn’t some elaborate dream, by the end we learn that even hybrids can have nightmares.  I loved it.  Definitely five stars.  I can’t wait for the next installment.  If you have been following this series, this is a must read, it is all starting to come to an end, or a new beginning.  Very well written.

The Sandman is the 7th installment in this series, that has proven long before being fantastic in its originality. In this installment we see all the characters known before going through dire ordeals that put their lives in risk. Not only their lives are in risk but also the waking world, since the Sandman has risen and his intentions are wicked and harmful to the entire population. Also the Agora is in risk of falling as happened with the black market in the previous novella. A new enemy and a new kind of an accomplice are revealed leading the story through an interesting, if somewhat hard edge. I'll admit that my heart hurts thinking of the circumstance my precious characters, whom I came to love, find themselves.

Wow… just wow! This is by far the best and most heartbreaking book of the series, yet! And since I’m nearing the end, I’m sure the next (and last!) book in the series is going to blow my mind. I was reading this book while on “work breaks”, and I didn’t think I would finish it within an 8 hour work day (less than that, really). But I just could not put the book down. From the start, the action was fast and intense, and it didn’t stop. All of the characters we love and care about are being pushed to the limits emotionally and physically. I don’t want to call out specifics (for fear of being spoilery), but my heart is just breaking for “dldjd” and “ionwow” and… well, all of them! Bravo to Ms. Kellison for this book and entire series. The Reveler series is honestly one of the best I’ve read! Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Ok, this installment was a horror movie meets the zombie apocalypse meets a corrupt government group who-takes-over-the-world-not-realizing-the-thing-they-worshipped-was-going-to-destroy-them, too. This one had freaky moments, sad moments, a few light moments, but all intense. Things have come to a head in the series. The Sandman has arrived and he is freaky as hell. I enjoyed it, but it was creepy at times. Not much of a romance, the couples have all been established and now the stories are just continuing the battle the couples face to save mankind from Nightmares and their leader, the Sandman. One story remains, I just hope all of the couples have a happy ending because honestly, I don't see a lot of hope of one happening (Which means it is good story telling).

This is the most suspenseful book in the series so far. Lots of action, drama and unexpected plot twists. I wouldn't say this is a standalone book, but if you like paranormal, this is a great series right from the first installment. Definitely one of my favourite authors now.

WOW! OH MY GOODNESS!!! What a read! This segment of the Reveler Series truly impressed me. A lot happens and I was reading as fast as I could to see what would come about next! At one point I was close to tears! I really hope this series is made into a box set to enjoy everything from start to finish! It picks up right where book 6 ends and I am floored by what unfolds! Erin Kellison is truly talented and I can not get enough of this world she has created! The Sandman is rising and evil makes itself known! What will happen in book 8? I am really looking forward to seeing it!

Gifted in exchange for an honest review. Sandman is the 7th in the Reveler Series presented by Erin Kellison. WOW. This is the best in the series and also the one that presents serious problems for our group of Dream Heroes. The Sandman is coming and the Waking world is in danger of not only not dreaming but not living either. Steve Coll is in a battle with the Nightmare without and within. Maise tries to keep her Dreamscape Maze City from being destroyed. Great action and surprising events make this installment one of the best.

THE SANDMAN is loaded with danger, intrigue, drama and witty dialogue. The Sandman is rising. "It'd been the only thing Coll had said before delirium had taken him again. The Sandman. Rising. THE SANDMAN by Erin Kellison is gripping good! Chaos prevails! I admit it; I'm utterly addicted to this series. I love the characters and the incredible awake and darkside worlds the author has created. A year ago, I read books one thru three in the series. I've not been able to forget the story or the characters so I recently binge-read books four through seven. I'm happy to report that the stories are still as obsession-inducing as they were a year ago. This is an original, dark series set in a complicated, futuristic world. You can expect each to include scenes of heated passion, lots of suspense and humorous segments that appear to lighten the mood when needed. Each installment is novella-length and there's always a cliffhanger at the end that will knock you for a loop and make you crave the next book right then. I suggest that these novellas be read in order as there is a rather involved continuing storyline and interconnected characters who figure prominently in each book. Each of the books begins where the book before left off. At the very least, the first book, DARKNESS FALLS, should be a required prerequisite as it contains essential background information about Reves, i.e., shared dreamscapes, and introduces many of the characters.

You know you've invested in a book series when the author torments a character and pisses you off. Such is the case with the latest Reveler book where you swear these characters just can't get a break. Whatever the climax of this series will bring, it is building and building into something unknown. Copy received in return for honest review.

I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. As with most of this series, The Sandman continues where Delirium finished. It is difficult to write a review without giving any of the story away so you'll just have to trust me when I say that this series is getting darker. Maisie and Steve have big roles to play but so do most of the others characters. They all get their fair share of 'story time' in this book. One thing I will say while giving away no spoilers, is be prepared to have your heartstrings pulled!  The action and excitement is pretty much non-stop and double-speak is rife. Just who can be trusted, who can't, who is human, who isn't is all up in the air and you won't know as you read along. Absolutely excellent wordsmithing. As with all in this series, highly recommended! Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. You need to read this series in order to follow the story not really a stand alone book. The Sandman is rising and the Black Market Reve's been over run with Nightmares. Steve is back but in danger. Maise's Dreamscape is full of Black Market refugees. All of our friends from other books are here and doing what they can as well. It is hard to review without giving spoilers but it's full of danger, it's fast paced and a new villian has arrived. I enjoyed this one and look forward to the next book in the series.

Reveler Book Seven All hell has broken loose in and out of the Darkside.  The black market has fallen and the Agora is up next.  Meanwhile, in the waking world the Sandman has risen, causing havoc in Washington in the form of a surprising person.  Will he destroy the world, or can the team stop him? If you're looking for the next installment in the Reveler series, expect mayhem, love and sacrifice.

Riveting, action-packed ride!  By far one of the best serials I've ever read. Although it’s a quick read it, I think it is mostly so because once I got my hands on it I just couldn’t put it down. This is the seventh installment of the series and must be read in order, and while I thought it was going to be last one I was happily surprised to find out there is still yet one more to come.  Hybrid Steve Coll is back and he comes bearing bad news: the Sandman has risen. With the fall of the black market, wild child Maisie must join forces with criminals if she wants to keep her city alive and save the man she loves. Agent Malcom Rook has to trust his beloved Jordan in the wake world to make the right choices while he tries to save those that still need him Darkside, even though he wants nothing more than to run to her side. Marshal Harlen Fawkes has already lost an ally in this war and may end up losing so much more if their enemies get a hold of those he loves. Everyone is doing their best to stay alive but it may just not be enough as one of them may just have to make the ultimate sacrifice.  This installment is not so much romance but non-stop riveting action. The suspense throughout had me turning the pages in anticipation. I could never guess who was a true ally, who was the enemy, what were they up against. And the fact that they were not only fighting to save the world but each other made the story even better.  Kellison knows her craft and has created a world like no other, threading aspects of suspense, fantasy, action, romance, and science fiction into one spell-binding well-told plot that left me wanting more. If anything, that’s my only peeve of this entire series, because I wish each and every one of them was longer and the characters had more room to tell more of themselves and of the story itself. But men, what a story!  ** I was gifted a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review**

The dreamscape is crumbling, the Sandman has risen, the nightmares are free and the real world is in  danger.  This installment was action packed from the  beginning with a lot of surprises... some good and some not so good.  There are new characters but the same core group is still involved.While I eagerly await a resolution, I want the next installment NOW so I can see what happens next, especially  due to the nail biting cliffhanger.  I would definitely recommend this book but you have to start at the beginning to understand what is going on.

With the fall of the Black Market Darkside, the people saved from the Scrape are holed up in Maze City, just as Steve Coll manages to find his way back there.  In terrible shape, Steve is sent back to the waking world in the hopes of saving him.  Maisie just wants to be with Steve, but that's impossible at this point.  With talented criminals overwhelming her city and trying to get a piece of it, Rook tries to convince Maisie she will have to make alliances to survive this and keep Maze City.  With the Sandman rising in the waking world, total destruction is going to follow.  Not knowing who to trust in the waking world, Jordan is flying by the seat of her pants.  The danger, suspense and plot have all picked up steam with the Sandman, and I thoroughly enjoyed following favorite characters into events I didn't see coming at all.  Unable to put this down until I finished, I hate the fact this series is coming to an end, but eagerly anticipate the final installment.

I have read all the book in this series so far and I cant get over how much I am enjoying them. The Sandman is is by far the one that I didnt want to put down even to go to work but I knew I had to . I love how Erin kept the suspense going through this book even in the ending which drives me crazy wanting to know what is going to happen in the next book. If ever there is a set of books that will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you pulling your hair out waiting for the next book you really need to read this series please start at the first book that way you know all that is going on and will be happening through to the next book .  The world Darkside is in turmoil when Chimera Marshal Steve Coll, bloody and beaten, makes it back to Maze City and into Maisie’s arms. He bears a terrible message—The Sandman, the god of the world of dreams, is rising, and he’s bringing devastation to the waking world. Steve must embrace his dual nature to save those he’s sworn to protect. And yet, how can he fight a being who destroys everything in his path?  Even awake, no one is safe.  After the fall of the black market, Maisie Lane’s city is overrun with criminals who want her dreamscape for their own. She’s always envisioned Maze City populated, but not with people like these. Nevertheless, she must relinquish some of her control not only to save the man she loves, but to protect and defend her precious city.
