Official description for Dreamwalker:
Noel Kennedy lost her boyfriend, her job and her dignity all in one week. Then something happened and she began to dream of this stranger she had never met. She couldn’t resist the man of her dreams named Jared especially when she met him in real life. Entranced, she slowly unraveled a world she was meant to stay out of. Her life was not what she thought it was once a sexy Boone stepped into the mix and shook things up. Can she escape a life of servitude or immortality for a chance at love?


My Thoughts:  Noel has been dumped by her boyfriend, is depressed, and hasn't left her apartment in a week. She begins to have dreams about this beautiful hot sexy guy.  Then Noel actually thinks she sees him across the street, but when she gets there he is gone.  A mysterious coin is left where he was standing, which ends up being a protection coin, and involves some very serious magic.  Her best friend, Autumn intervenes and decides Noel needs a night on the town.  They end up going to a club and who does Noel meet there, but the guy from her dreams, Jared.  Noel continues to have the strange dreams, yet they feel so real, and are sometimes dangerous.  After Jared disappears, another super hot bad boy named Boone shows up to ask Noel if she knows anything about his disappearance.  Noel finds herself extremely attracted to Boone also.  A series of events begin to unfold and Noel realizes the things in her dreams are real.  She also begins to have visions.  Thrown into a world of magic and mythology, Noel comes to learn that she is a dreamwalker, and she can enter into other people's dreams.  The people she is on the run with also have supernatural abilities.  There are even vampires, goblins, and Fae.  Because of her rare and powerful ability, some very evil beings are trying to abduct her for Persephone.  Noel comes to realize that her memory and powers have been stripped and she has a whole life that she never knew existed.  On top of being hunted, she has to choose between Jared and Boone.  Could things possibly get worse?  Can she choose between two best friends?  Will she end up as one of Persephone's slaves?


This was a very interesting book.  I wasn't sure about it in the beginning, because a lot of the book centers around the dreams Noel is having, but I soon became very engrossed in what was going on.  The story is filled with all kinds of magic and mythology, and there is some pretty hot romance to boot.  It took Noel and little longer than I would have liked for her to make up her mind as to which guy she wanted, but I was pleased with her choice.  There is quite a bit of action, so the book is fast paced and entertaining.  All the supernatural elements made the book interesting also.  I wasn't crazy about Noel in the beginning, but she grew on me as the book went on.  Overall, I enjoyed this book and if you like the supernatural and paranormal romance, then Dreamwalker is a book you might want to check out.   






About the author: Andrea Heltsley


I am a biology nerd who loves reading just about anything paranormal and some chick lit. I love my Italian greyhounds, my family, sunshine and summertime and most of all books! When I am not writing, I am reading. I have been writing on paper and in my head since grade school. It is pretty bad when you are at your job and daydreaming about writing a scene. I have fallen victim more than once, so I decided to make a go of it:) I am an entertainment girl! I love all things books, music, movies and television. Coffee is my best friend and I think I should own a Starbucks by now..lol
