When Moira helps out her sister and brother in a Wiccan ritual on Halloween, the last thing she expects is to be swept away to a mystical wilderness. Sitting within the stones of the ancient circle of Penmaenmawr, Wales, she's convinced it's an illusion. But the dark-haired, handsome man with amnesia that Moira meets during her trance cannot be blinked away like a dream.
Hayko, the mysterious stranger, won’t let go. After returning home from her stone circle adventure, Moira is beckoned back night after night to the outlandish dreamland by an invisible force. But the hardest part isn't having to fight the terrifying creatures of these nightmares--it's realizing she’s falling for a guy without a past who isn’t real.
What if you really can fall in love with the man of your dreams?
My Review: Ah, another book by Jen! I love these ideas she makes into her books, and I haven't run into one I haven't like from her yet.
Moira didn't think much about helping out in a Wiccan ritual. So when she got swept away, she wasn't thinking this could all be real. I mean how could she open a world between life and death? This could all just be some crazy dream, after all she is told that she has ADHD and a not so great guy.
Well....Moira just isn't so lucky and this world she opened up, in very real and she is now a part of it. There she finds Hayko and finds that she is drawn to him and wants to help him. A selfish spirit want to keep him, and well Moira knows about selfish people. So who better to help him out? Plus she is kinda destined to help anyway, well you could probably guess that yourself.
Is this some kind of fate? Why does Hayko go to her dreams every night? Why pick Moira and not some other girl? Is this a lesson for doing Wicca? All I can say is that Jen has made another perfect story that has gotten me hooked right away! Plus I like Moira, maybe my favorite female character Jen has wrote. Who knows, I'm sure there will be a lot more characters for me to enjoy. I can't wait to see what comes out next!
