Dark Summer Dreams
Paranormal Romance – Sci-fi Romance
I freed him from imprisonment, only to become his pawn.
I, Shandria Langston, last remaining daughter of the leader of the Sunan, was charged with an impossible task. I had to rescue Kraggon Dragmor—sworn enemy of my people—from the death chamber. If I refused, our world as we know it would be destroyed.
Oh, but was he happy with my sacrifice? No. Instead of being properly appreciative of this selfless act, of being grateful that I tended to him through a deathly illness, the bastard’s kidnapped me. I’m “a symbol of retribution for his people.” The man has no heart.
I have only one advantage in captivity: I can read Kraggon’s thoughts. I know that he can’t afford to admit that I empathize with his people. He can’t afford to admit that I am more beautiful than any woman he’s ever seen, or allow me to fire his blood with every look…and he can’t afford to admit that he’ll do anything to save me, that I’ve become his heart.

Dark Summer Dreams is book two in the Dreamwalkers series by Danube Adele. This is my first time reading Ms. Adele. I started this book not knowing it was part of a series and it does stand on its own. Ms. Adele pulled me into her Dreamwalkers world and never let me go.
I was impressed with Shandria Langston a young girl/women who has been isolated from her family and people most of her life (coddled). She had her doubts, but came to realize she is much strong then she thinks. I just loved everything about her, the struggles she went through, the emotions, and the character growth. Fabulously done! I also liked how her abilities are portrayed and that she does not take advantage of the gift, but uses it for the better.
Kraggon our strong handsome warrior that Shandria saves from death. He pretty much got his heart and soul crushed and now has some pretty big baggage. He fights every step of the way on his attraction to Shandria. It was wonderful to see him interact with his people and how much they love him, after all he is their true King.
This book is an emotionally engaging read. So many things are at play in this book. We get some pretty interesting dream sequences that give us more information then what Shandria remembers. I liked this! It also helped explain Kraggon and Shandria’s burring desire/attraction for one another. At one point I wondered who was Taylor, but then I figured out she is Shandria’s sister-in-law who is in Quicksilver Dreams. The writing style is wonderful and ease to follow. All I can say is I loved everything about this book!
I was pulled in and could not put it down. I feel in love with the world, plot, characters the whole thing and now I must get my hands on book one Quicksilver Dreams.

Quicksilver Dreams (Dreamwalkers, #1)
My name is Taylor, and damn but my life changed overnight. One moment I was just a regular girl working two jobs to pay my bills, and next thing you know, I’m uncovering secret metal disks at my boss’s house. Now I’m reading minds, dream-walking and being saved from bad guys by Mr. Dark and Brooding.
That would be Ryder Langston, my new next-door neighbor. He’s sex on legs, but he’s also a secret agent from another world—no joke. I believe him now, because he dragged me back here “for my protection” after he discovered someone was trying to assassinate me on Earth. It isn’t working out so well.
There’s a war going on, one that’s been fought for generations. Ryder’s having trust issues (not that it’s stopping us from falling into bed), and it turns out I’m connected here, if you know what I mean. The target on my back finally makes sense, but there’s nowhere left to hide…
