Dreamer Cv 1Reviewed by Jessa Larsen

Asenya is nothing like her identical twin sister. Zanas has always been brave, headstrong, and completely dedicated to her schoolwork. Asenya has other things on her mind. She is beautiful, confident, and always has a string of love struck boys to play with. She could also be considered arrogant, selfish, and demanding, but that never bothers her. These qualities are the exact traits that make her so well suited to the world of the Dreamers. Not to mention the fact that she seems to have a natural talent that may just surpass any of the Dreamers actually born into the world of Alwahi.

Asenya finds herself kidnapped and taken beneath, but as she fights to discover herself and her true place in the grand scheme of things, she discovers that her potential is far greater than she could have ever imagined. Asenya finds herself hurdling towards her destiny at breakneck speeds, but she has to wonder… is this where she truly belongs? Or will this lead to her demise?

Dreamer is the second book in the Alwahi Series and follows Asenya’s story. We hear a little bit about her in Zana’s story (Pursuer), but Dreamer takes us deeper into the world of Alwahi and gives us a great new perspective on the strange world Asenya and Zanas have joined.

I was very excited to start Dreamer after having loved Pursuer so much. At first I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t necessarily a true sequel as much as an addition written from a second perspective, but I quickly got over it and was utterly submerged. I couldn’t get enough and the story ended far too quickly. The timelines between Zanas and Asenya seem slightly different, but work nicely as long as you don’t expect to read Dreamer as a stand-alone title. You absolutely have to read Pursuer first. (Or maybe I’m just biased since I liked Zanas a tad better than her sister.) This is definitely an exciting series and I’m already anxious for the third installment.
