In my opinion, the book was enjoyable and fun. But I have to admit here, the author touches upon dreams, which is my favourite concept ever, so maybe I’m biased haha. I have always been fascinated by dreams ,where they come from and what they can bring us. Exploring that concept was a fun ride for me. The ending was surprisingly good ! What I didn’t like about the book was the slow pace, it kind of dragged on in the beginning and it got only really good near the end. People should also keep in mind that the book was part of a series so I guess it’s normal that the first volume was to introduce us to the characters and the relations. The love at first sight was a bit too cliché for me hahah but that’s only my opinion because I know there are people who love that part.


Overall, I give a 4 stars because I think the storyline is original and intriguing, enough to keep us hooked to the end and find out more about the mystery surrounding the book. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series !

Thank you to the author for giving me the free book in exchange for an honest review.
