In post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, dreams come true. So do nightmares. 

 Ever since a shift in reality twenty years ago, peoples' dreams and nightmares come alive, spreading chaos and destruction. Monsters ravage cities, bottomless chasms split roads, and gold rains from the sky - the possibilities are limitless, unpredictable and often deadly. Eden Maybrey is a hunter of these "shades". When a friend tasks her with tracking down and eliminating an evil shade, the hunt threatens to expose Eden's deepest, darkest secret. To find her prey, she is forced to team up with Vaughn Taylor, a hunter who hates shades with a passion - and who won't hesitate to put a bullet in Eden's head should he figure out the truth.

I could not resist this one! The concept is so cool! It fell on the back-burner for a while, but I am so glad I was able to finallllyyyyy get into this one. 

The story is set in LA after a terrible event happened years previously. Dreams AND nightmares can come true LITERALLY. It's unpredictable and can be deadly. They call these manifestations "shades". We follow Eden who is a hunter of these shades and is tasked to get rid of them. There are many other hunters out there, but there is something different about our Eden and she cannot let the world know what it is. When a friend manifests a shade, he hires Eden to take care of it, because it is dangerous. So dangerous it puts Eden and everyone she loves at risk. She is forced to team up with Vaughn Taylor is who is anti-shade that even fellow hunters worry about him. 

Loved Eden. She was kickass! 

Loved Cece too. She was kickass. 

Aunt Vy the sword was a hoot and she was certainly a fun "character". 

Sean was fishy to me. 

Loved David. He was so sweet to Cece and her baby sister. 

Bella.....hate you. Hate you, hate you, hate you. I get you are a teenager who really went through some stuff. But you are manipulative and terrible. Someone needs to kick her ass. Maybe Eden will one day. But seriously Bella...get your head out of your arse. 

Besides for my loathing for that snot-nose kid, I really enjoyed this. I could NOT read this fast enough especially near the end. THAT TWIST! I guessed it, but I thought I was just being a negative nancy and cynical, but OMG. Danggg I need book 2 now!!!!!!

Okay - okay. Overall...this was awesome and fun. I highly recommend it. 5 stars. 

PS - Yes, I was bored so I had a little fun with doing HTML and formatting lol. Let me know if you like it! Maybe I'll force myself to not be lazy for future reviews/posts ;)


  1. This sounds really exciting! I couldn't imagine what it would be like to have dreams and nightmares come true. I am glad you enjoyed this one.

  2. Sounds like a thrilling read. Never heard of it.

  3. This sounds like a real fun one. I LOVE a good twist at the end!

    Yay for playing more with HTML. It always intimidates me a bit. FYI, the blurb at the top runs out of the box a bit and bleeds into the opening part of your review.

    1. Oh no! I don't think it worked well over here. Bummer! It fit on mine well.

      Thanks Ethan.

  4. 5 stars desptie the snot nosed kid lol Not bad!
