Blog Tour & Review: Dream of Me (Dream Maker #1) by Quinn Loftis

Dream of Me
(Dream Maker #1)
by: Quinn Lostis

“In the evening… [he] blows softly upon their necks, till their heads begin to droop. […] Under each arm he carries an umbrella; one of them, with pictures on the inside, he spreads over the good children, and then they dream the most beautiful stories the whole night.” ~ Hans Christian Anderson

Since the dawn of time, Brudair, otherwise known as the Sandman to the world, has faithfully lived out his purpose, faithfully performed his duties. He has never questioned his lot among the immortals, until now, until her. Sarah Serenity Tillman, a consummate beauty both inside and out, is a high school senior five months from her graduation. She has great plans, dreams of leaving the small town of her childhood behind her forever. But destiny has other plans, and it’s the Sandman’s job to make sure those plans are fulfilled.

The tall muscular Sandman, known as Dair to his friends, dressed in black, wrapped in shadows, is more than a myth. And he has a job to do. His very existence makes him a creature of the night, because dreams, (yes the legends got that part right), were indeed his specialty. But his purpose was more than just weaving dreams for sleeping children. No, his dreams were made to influence, made to ensure that certain special individuals, those individuals who would change the course of history, actually accepted their chosen destiny.

Little does Serenity know that she is Dair’s next assignment. And the dream that he weaves for her, if she follows its influence, will change the course of, not only her life, but possibly the whole of history as well. But she isn’t the only one being influenced. The beauty inside of her was weighing on the Sandman, lighting up the darkness that was his constant companion. Her light was warmth, it was life, and he didn’t understand how he had survived the previous millennia without it.

The Sandman was indeed greater than anything humans had ever imagined, and his purpose was vital to the course of history. So what happens when the weaver of dreams gets so distracted by a mere human that he ignores his own duties in the immortal realm? How can an immortal who was never meant to have a mate, join a young woman in her destiny without irrevocably changing the lives of millions and potentially altering history in a way the Creator never intended?

“Dream of me, Princess,” Dair whispered into her ear.
“Then weave me a dream, Sandman,” she said softly. “And we can dream together.”
As her eyes grew heavy, she heard Dair’s voice telling her to sleep, to open her mind to him and let him in. I’m all yours, she thought as sleep finally claimed her.

my thoughts about the book:

It's totally obviously that I utterly love this author (that is if you have read my other reviews of her books). Quinn Loftis is one of the few authors that created long books (between 350 to 500 pages) and I still read it all in one day or less. Plus is one of the fewer authors that no matter what he writes, I always love it. Dream of Me was NOT a let down and it became one of my favorites for now on.

This book goes around the myth of the Sandman, a dream weaver. An immortal creature that weaves you a dream giving you hints of what you would do in future. You always have the free will, but its like choosing between the world peace or the next war, you will never know the consequences until you take the step. Dair, our Sandman, has live a lonely life weaving dreams for the Creator, until his next assignment caught him off guard. Sarah Serenity is not like any other girl, she is beautiful outside, but very much on the inside. Dair is captivated by her and he begins to feel things she wasn't created for. The path is a rough one, but Dair will do anything for Sarah Serenity and that's what matters.

It really is a lovely story! Dair says so many romantic things that basically he conquer me. He weaved very slowly his words together until the result was a beautiful declaration of love. Sarah Serenity is a really lovely character too. She loves to help everyone and with everything. When her life became entwined with the Sandman, she fell for him hard. And when she became aware of her purpose in life, helping Emma, she did everything she could and I know she will keep doing so. Emma is an eight year old genius girl and totally lives like a twenty year old person. She knows so much, but have live so little that its sad. Other hilarious characters are Glory Day (yes, its real name) and Aunt Willa, those two has no filter and whatever they are thinking they will say... Its totally funny!

If you really haven't read any books of Quinn Loftis, I don't know what you are waiting on, because they are the best. I love all her books (repeating myself here), but this one will take place in a special place. I really really love it and I think you should too.
