Sixteen-year old Selena Fallon is a dreamer. Not a day-dreamer, but an I-see-the-future kind of dreamer. Normally this is not a problem as she has gotten pretty good at keeping her weird card hidden from everyone in her small town. Except from her best friend Kyle and her grandparents, of course. But when Selena dreams of her own rather bloody death, things get a little too freaky even for her.
Enter Dillan Sloan. Selena has seen the new guy in a different dream, and he is even more droolworthy in person. Beyond the piercing blue eyes and tousled dark hair, there is something else that draws her to him. Something…electric. Unfortunately, Dillan makes it more than clear that he does not feel the same. They just met, so why would he act like he hates her?
When Dillan and Selena are forced together one weekend to work on a school project, Selena prepares to be ignored as usual. But when she stumbles across a few undead in the backyard, Dillan comes to her rescue and reveals a whole lot more. Not only is he part of a society that hunts otherworldly creatures…she is too. And she is being targeted by a force bigger and darker than anything she ever imagined. Despite her death dream, Selena is not going to give up easy, especially when she discovers that Dillan might not actually hate her after all.
My Review: Love this paranormal book! I love getting to know Illumenari. Its so original and I just love the whole thing! The whole book flowed perfectly and ended with a major cliffhanger! It's only book 1, and has the cliffhanger like it was the ending of the series!
So about the characters...Dillan is angry and has to go do things that really make him angry. His attitude changes when Selena joins the picture. Selena sparks something with Dillan, though he hated her for the longest time in the start of the book. Then things start to relax and they start working together and they are great. I loved them even more near the end.
I love the whole dreamer thing. Selena can see the future, but is called a dreamer. I like that, its something different to say. Though I would not want to have her dreams...ever. Mainly the horrid death she will go through. These dreams are detailed just right to make you wonder how it will unfold. Selena must figure out the whole death thing, after all its not like she dreams about her death that often. As usual a hot guy will enter and she will need him. That of course is Dillan.
So overall I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more.
