Only she hadn’t counted on evil college professors–like, literally evil, not just tough–and a hot guy with secrets of his own. She also hadn’t planned to get stuck taking care of her father, who suffers from dementia. That’s usually her sister’s responsibility, but family is family, and Koi can’t refuse.
Koi’s father, the hot guy, and the evil college professor are all involved in some mystery that Koi can’t quite unravel. Mix in Japanese and Native American mythology, lots of shenanigans, and a healthy dose of Portland ambiance, and you’ve got a great series debut!
I really enjoyed Dream Eater, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. The pacing is fast, the characters are fun to spend time with, and Koi’s voice made me want to keep hanging out with her. While there’s one front-and-center conflict in this novel, there are also hints of an overarching conflict that will span the series, and I look forward to seeing how it develops.
Any reader who enjoys Japanese mythology and anime will love Dream Eater. It will appeal to fans of C.E. Murphy and Patricia Briggs, and anyone who likes a smart, scrappy heroine who’s far from perfect but determined to do her best.
I received an electronic ARC of this book for the purpose of writing a review.
Koi’s story pulled me in immediately and kept my attention throughout the entire book. There were numerous twists, but never abandoned the hope of a happily-ever-after. The blossoming love story was sweet, particularly because I felt Koi’s emotions when she was finally able to touch someone without the typical repercussions. The mythology was also fascinating. We don’t have enough mythology from Asian cultures in mainstream fiction, so this is a gift to those who loved Percy Jackson, but wish to move beyond the well-known Greek and Roman myths. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, ancient cultures, and all things Asian.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
