Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Glory sets off with Djinn and her family. The family of Djinn hunters. They need to help of four lords in hiding, to defeat Rasputin.
More secrets, lies and prophecies are revealed.

This is book two. Read Wish for Me before this one, and preferably read one and two back to back. You might enjoy it more that way.

Because I struggled with this one. Really, really struggled.

I LOVED book one, and eagerly awaited book two, excited to see what would happen.

But all that I loved in book one, I disliked here.

Its told almost entirely again from Glory's POV in the first person. Its not a favourite of mine, but I LOVED it in book one. It really bothered me here. Why the difference?? I dunno, but it did bother me, a lot.

It also has another cliff hanger. And I think this is where part of my struggle stems from. When filing this book on my currently reading shelf on Goodreads, I noticed there are 3 more books in this series. So I knew going into this one, that it wouldn't be ending here. That it carries on over three more books. Totally put me off. Will I read those three books?? I don't know. Can't say I will, or that I won't. Absolutely depends on the next point.

The ONLY reason this book gets 3 stars from me is this : Irving gets a say. Its only one chapter and is again in the first person. Even though its only a short burst, I did love that he had his say. If he has his say, MORE of a say, in future books, I'll probably read them.

I wanted to love this book, I really did, especially after book one, but I couldn't. I tried though, I really did.

3 stars

This book takes off exactly where Wish For Me ended, and follows Glory, Irving, Madeleine, and Elena on their quest to find Rasputin and save their realms from certain death. I really enjoyed the first book in this series (check out my review for more information), and whilst that makes the second in a series exciting, it also makes me a little nervous. Is it going to be as good? Is it going to be terrible and taint my opinion of the first? Is it going to be so awesome that I can’t handle it? Am I going to be disappointed to find that the third in the series is not out yet? In this instance, the truth is honestly a bit of a mixture.

It’s a great story, that’s for sure – or at least, it is so far (there is at least one more book to come). I read the book in two sittings (as I did with the first), and it kept me up well past my bed time, so there is no doubt that I enjoyed it. It was full of excitement and some great characters. I’ve fallen in love with Glory St. Pierre in a way that I hadn’t quite managed in the first book, and her character becomes much more rounded and realistic in Dream of Me. The book gives more depth to the other characters as well – Edwin and Karaman in particular, making the whole book more engaging and ultimately, more enjoyable.

It ends well too, leaving me with a gasp and a twinge of excitement. I’m disappointed that the third book isn’t available yet – I would have started reading it as soon as I finished this one. There isn’t a cliff-hanger as such, but the revelations that come to light at the end of this book are exciting and intriguing, meaning that I’m anxious to know what comes next. The book, too, is filled with the fantastic narrative and lovely descriptions that I’ve come to expect from A.

I have a problem with this book. It's too short - I wanted more!

That aside, this novel was all about developing the relationships. But secrets and lies permeate those relationships, causing them to be tested. And, when there is a lack of communication, there is potential for misunderstanding.

The story-telling kept me on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop. And, for me at least, it felt as though Glory's mother's feelings were the ones that were bleeding through the narrative and colouring Glory's interactions.

Looking forward to book 3.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0x9f49d46c) out of 5 stars A good instalment but not a full book! 26 Jan. 2016
By Vickyloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book takes off exactly where Wish For Me ended, and follows Glory, Irving, Madeleine, and Elena on their quest to find Rasputin and save their realms from certain death. I really enjoyed the first book in this series (check out my review for more information), and whilst that makes the second in a series exciting, it also makes me a little nervous.

There isn’t a cliff-hanger as such, but the revelations that come to light at the end of this book are exciting and intriguing, meaning that I’m anxious to know what comes next. The book, too, is filled with the fantastic narrative and lovely descriptions that I’ve come to expect from A. Star, like this one: “we are all the offspring of fate”, and the whole book has that same steampunk feel of the first. The people and places are so easy to imagine that it’s almost as though the reader is on that airship with them, or watching the mechanical creatures on the hillsides of Shrinelyn and that, for me, is the sign of a great novel.

This short little instalment of the tale is as action-packed as the first, with plenty of twists and turns, plenty of adventure, and some great characters. However, it’s worth remembering that it is just that – an instalment. It doesn’t read like a book in itself but rather as part of a book, the middle section of a story arc that stretches over three volumes. Yes, the best trilogies have an over-riding story but each book should also have its own tale to make it seem complete. The Djinn Order books don’t and that’s a real shame. I honestly believe that the series would work better as one long novel – and assuming that third is going to be of a similar length to the first two, the books are short enough for this to work. Why they were written separately, I can only guess – financial gain, perhaps? An attempt at serialisation? Whatever the reason, Star would do better to bring them together into one volume rather than having them separate. As one, this book would shine in the way it truly deserves to, but as separate entities, they lose a little of that sparkle.

There were other things that disappointed me too. This book didn’t seem quite as polished as the first one, with the odd typo (entirely forgivable) or consistency errors (like the time when Glory hands her bag to the guard, only to put something into the very same bag just a few lines later). Or new things that are introduced, like one chapter written from Irving’s point-of-view near the end – odd-seeming because it’s something that hasn’t been done so far in either book. It felt as though the author didn’t know how to work that information into the narrative through Glory’s POV – which I understand, but it did pull me out of the story for a moment and that’s a shame.

What’s irritating most of all is that the things that frustrated me were so minor (apart from, perhaps, the fact that this is one novel stretched over three). It’s irritating because although these things made the book less polished or refined, it was otherwise great (and the first one too). They so deserve to be read and admired. As YA fantasy goes, it’s really unique, and that’s a challenge in such a huge market. A. Star is a fantastic writer, with a flair for great lines and punchy, action-packed story telling. She can pull a reader in, and although perhaps they took their time to truly shine, the characters are fantastic too. Does this book live up to the first in the series? I’m not sure, but it gives it a bloody good go and some elements definitely shone through. Will I read the third book? Absolutely, I just hope it’s not too long in coming. Would I recommend the series? Go for it, it’s a great story and will keep you plenty entertained – but here’s a little word of advice: be patient, the rest of the tale is on its way – even if you have got to buy three books to get it!
HASH(0x9f4a3444) out of 5 stars Dream of Me was freaking awesome! 29 Jan. 2016
By Stephanie Verhaegen (Bookfever) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Oh my god! Dream of Me was freaking awesome! Of course I wasn't expecting anything less but I'm still amazed at the turn this book took. I loved it and finished in pretty much one sitting!

In this book, Glory is still trying to come to terms with everything she discovered in the first book, with herself being the daughter of Rasputin and her mother being a fierce Djinn hunter and everything else in between. To stop Rasputin she, Irving, her mother and aunt are going on a quest to find the Lord of the Djinn order, their only hope to save everyone.

Glory is still her feisty self, only she now knows who she really is. She still hasn't forgiven her family for keeping such a huge secret from her. I think Glory is a fantastic character but sometimes I wanted to smack some sense into her because of the decisions she made, although at the time she didn't knew they'd turn out bad. She also had some issues defining her relationship with Irving, which has its ups and down. I still love them to bits and pieces together, though.

And Irving? What can I say about him that isn't obvious already. I love his devotion to Glory and his need to protect her, but also his kingdom. He's one of my favorite book boyfriends ever. I adore him.

Some parts of this book really blew my mind. Especially the end. I really didn't see that one coming. The author, A. Star, really has a knack with writing surprising twists that make me exclaim out loud. Seriously. I also still love the steampunk aspect. It's all pretty genius and wonderful world-building.

Overal, Dream of Me by A. Star was amazing! Even more so than the first book, in my opinion. I'm also really excited for the next instalment in the series, with the way things ending. I can't wait!
HASH(0x9f4a09f0) out of 5 stars Another excellent installment! 28 Jan. 2016
By Alicia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was just as excellent as the first, if not more so. I had to refresh myself with the last chapter of the first book but it wasn’t too difficult to catch up on. The plot kept getting more complicated as the book went on, but it was possible to keep up with, even if it wasn’t incredibly easy. I think more complex plots are better anyhow.

Glory is just as funny and sassy as ever. She’s a very relatable character. I love how she speaks her mind even in the face of royalty, but I don’t love how she can’t keep her mouth shut at the right times. That’s often a big problem with people who are sassy. It’s the price you pay for being such a fun person. Anyhow, I think her loyalty goes deeper than she believes, so she’ll always make the most selfless decision, even if it screws things up short-term. I don’t believe that nothing can be undone.

The plot was very good. It was very straightforward, but still with several twists and surprises. However, those were mostly due to the discovery of new information. The action was straightforward. As for actual fighting action, there wasn’t too much of that, but I think there will be more in the next book. Several big things were revealed towards the end, evolving the situation into a larger-scale issue.

Glory’s and Irving’s relationship was a lot rockier in this book. It was mostly due to two things. One was that she was having a hard time committing herself to him while he had already committed himself to her. The other was the issue of trust. Both sides kept things from the other, although Irving was a lot less patient when Glory kept secrets. Oh, and there is the small issue of Glory not being able to keep her mouth shut and screwing a few things up. But I believe that in the end it will work out. I mean, no relationship is perfect. Everyone has to work through things and build trust and talk about their issues. I believe that both Glory and Irving are mature enough to work things out, even if it takes a while to do so. As for Irving as a character? Yes, he’s still very attractive. Very protective, loyal, all those things. Still keeps secrets. Still is perfectly blunt about the things he does choose to share. As a result, he’s a bit hard to pin down. But I think the important thing is that he’s committed himself to Glory, forever I think, and we’ll just have to have faith that that will be enough for her and everyone else.

There are a lot of other cute potential romances in this book that I would love to develop into greater things as well. That would be fun to see. You know what else would be fun to see? A map. I love maps of fictional worlds.

I do like how the non-romantic relationships work. I like how Glory’s still coming to terms with her mom’s and aunt’s hunter statuses and the fact that they’ve kept things from her for so long. She’s still getting used to having a mother again and it’s hard on both of them. Elena—her aunt—is great though. She’s funny and spirited and someone to confide in. Sure, all three get into arguments, but that’s honestly to be expected since they’re all very similar and stubborn. They’re working it out. And it looks like Glory might actually be making some friends as well. (Besides Ash.) It’s about time.

I also did have a few feels while reading this book. I was furious once or twice and I definitely cried at least twice. I got better towards the second half but anything to do with Glory’s and Irving’s relationship problems made me a bit of a mess. I lived those moments but once it was fixed I was fine.

All in all, it’s an excellent, hard-to-put-down book that makes me seriously wish I could read the next one pronto. I’ve already determined that I will read everything by this author. (This is my…4th book by her so far?) They’re all so good. Just the right amount of creative fantasy and hot-but-realistic romance.

HASH(0x9f4a27c8) out of 5 stars You can't prepare for what you don't know 28 Jan. 2016
By Deb Nam-Krane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

The big reveal at the end of Wish For Me shed light on Glory's connections to the Djinn. Fair to say she might have a personal stake in their fate, but once the Djinn discover what they are, they are not going to be happy. No matter; the only Djinn she really cares about is Irving, and those two continue to steam up the pages, regardless of whether they're fighting or working together.

It's not enough that they have to worry about Hunters, a vengeful Djinn sect and some of Irving's snooty relatives. Not to give anything away, but Glory proves yet again that what you don't know really can hurt you and the people you love. Maybe she should be a little less reckless, but maybe Irving should be a little more forthcoming. But that's nothing compared to this installment's big reveal: let's just say Djinn riding on horseback is going to turn out to be one of the most terrifying things Glory has ever encountered.

I am loving this compact little series so far, and my hat is off to A. Star for her economical word building; these novels aren't super long, but you can immediately picture the world of the Djinn (and the other dimensions they visit). I mention this because one of the reasons I avoid paranormal is that I dread slogging through pages and pages describing an alternate universe, but the dread factor here is zero. Dare I say it, Star makes her new worlds sound like a lot of fun.

I can't wait to see what the final installment has in store for Glory, Irving and the rest of the rest of their motley band. Recommended for fans of steampunk.
