My Rating:
Goodreads Summary: For as long as she can remember, Rebekah Clayton’s life has been dictated by her dreams. As a dream interpreter, she has become privy to her clients’ deepest and darkest secrets. Affairs, financial ruin, even murder—nothing shocks her anymore. But Grant Raskin’s dreams are unlike any she has heard before.

If Rebekah’s interpretation is right, Grant has foreseen the end of the world. A plague is coming and everyone Rebekah cares about will succumb to the illness. And Grant can trace the origin of the disease back to two men: Dr. Mark Holman and his son Drew.

Grant enlists Rebekah to track down the Holmans and determine their connection to the viral outbreak. But uncovering Drew Holman’s secrets will lead her down a dangerous path—unearthing a deadly conspiracy she never could have predicted.

***The first book in a two-part series from bestselling romance author Heather Topham Wood.***

My Review

I am a huge fan of Heather's Second Sight paranormal romance series. If you haven't checked that out yet then you really should. Here is my review of the first book, First Visions. My love for her other series is what had me beyond excited for this new duology! The Dark Dreamer didn't disappoint.

The Dark Dreamer starts off with action and thrills and continues at this pace for most of the book. When the action does slow down we get romance instead. I wasn't complaining since both aspects of the novel were done extremely well. The idea of dream reading was beyond interesting. I loved the concept and the idea. Basically I liked everything about it. Haven't you ever wondered what your dreams were telling you?

Becca is a dream interpreter and she is awesome. I like her spunk. I had no trouble connecting with her as a character because she seemed real. Grant was an interesting character as was Drew. Both sexy men have a mystery around them that we don't fully grasp until the end of the novel. I love a good mysterious boy. 

Heather once again convinced me as to why I need to keep reading her stuff. Her paranormal romances are wonderful. She mixes the perfect blend of paranormal and sexy steaminess. They are quick fulfilling reads that give me an escape from the real world. 

I read this book in just about one sitting. It was that good! I will warn you... the ending is crazy! I am now waiting for the next book. Impatiently may I add. It may kill me just a little. I look forward to reading many more of Heather's books in the future.


  1. So since I love the idea of a dream reader and you loved this book - the only question is whether I should read this now or wait until book 2 is out so I don't have to wait impatiently with you ;) Then again, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't keep you company?

    1. hahaha Either way sounds good to me. I don't think it would hurt to wait since the ending was killer. I am also just giving you that warning you so you don't read this right away and then hate me. I like to give my friends disclaimers for my own safety. ;)

  2. I'm sooo adding this one to my TBR list! I love the sound of it, interpreting dreams, so interesting! Becca also sounds like a character I must meet :)

    Lovely review!

    1. This was a really good read! I hope you read it and like Becca as much as I did. :)

  3. Oh wow, First Visions. I remember reading it and really enjoying it, but the story ad characters have slipped my mind. I'll have to try to read that series over again. As for The Dark Dreamer, sign me up for some sexy boys (; I appreciate your warning about the crazy ending. It makes me want to read this even more. It's too enticing.

    1. I loved First Visions and I hope you go back and revisit! I really enjoy Heather's writing style and her paranormal romances. :D I can't wait to see what you think of this one.
