Dream of Me Blog Tour!

Dream of Me: Book 1 of The Dream Makers Series

by Quinn Loftis


Synopsis

Since the dawn of time, Brudair, otherwise known as the Sandman to the world, has faithfully lived out his purpose, faithfully performed his duties. He has never questioned his lot among the immortals, until now, until her. Sarah Serenity Tillman, a consummate beauty both inside and out, is a high school senior five months from her graduation. She has great plans, dreams of leaving the small town of her childhood behind her forever. But destiny has other plans, and it’s the Sandman’s job to make sure those plans are fulfilled.
The tall muscular Sandman, known as Dair to his friends, dressed in black, wrapped in shadows, is more than a myth. And he has a job to do. His very existence makes him a creature of the night, because dreams, (yes the legends got that part right), were indeed his specialty. But his purpose was more than just weaving dreams for sleeping children. No, his dreams were made to influence, made to ensure that certain special individuals, those individuals who would change the course of history, actually accepted their chosen destiny.
Little does Serenity know that she is Dair’s next assignment. And the dream that he weaves for her, if she follows its influence, will change the course of, not only her life, but possibly the whole of history as well. But she isn’t the only one being influenced. The beauty inside of her was weighing on the Sandman, lighting up the darkness that was his constant companion. Her light was warmth, it was life, and he didn’t understand how he had survived the previous millennia without it.
The Sandman was indeed greater than anything humans had ever imagined, and his purpose was vital to the course of history. So what happens when the weaver of dreams gets so distracted by a mere human that he ignores his own duties in the immortal realm? How can an immortal who was never meant to have a mate, join a young woman in her destiny without irrevocably changing the lives of millions and potentially altering history in a way the Creator never intended?

Review: 4 Stars!
I have to say this was one of the hardest books that I have ever had to review.
It took me quite some time to get into it because of the background information. I am grateful that I did. This book opened my eyes in ways  you cannot fathom. I believe in God but not religion itself. This book gave me an insight that I never thought possible and changed my entire mindset.
This book had more growth in characters and people in general than I have had in the past few years. There is so much power, strength, and courage shown and to me, that is how you know a book is well written.
These characters were the epitome of strength and wisdom. They have something that is in each of us but we tend to forget. There is a selflessness in these characters that totally blows my mind because it is how we all should be. There is so much to be learned from this.
The emotions I felt with each character took me to a place—a dark one I had thought I had forgotten. There was so much hatred and evil that is reminded me of why it is easier to forgive rather than to pretend it didn’t happen.
There was tears, laughter, heartache, and happiness all wrapped up in this one.
Along with the dark, I also felt all the good things this book could give. There was pure joy I felt. I know I am sounding like a broken record, but this book will rise emotions, fears, and hope that you may have forgotten are there.
Quinn did an amazing job with this book, I am amazed at how well it is written and how well she handled all the darker emotions. If you read this book—which I urge you to do so, think about what it gives back to you and how it can change your mindset entirely.
I know most people would point out the love and romance of this book, which it is endearing and heartwarming. I wanted to leave you with a little more—something that may make you change your entire outlook on it.
Dair – there is no words to describe this man. He is something special. He is more than words can ever try to explain.
Sarah Serenity – She is the word selfless. There is no other way to describe the heart and soul of this woman. She is a role model.
Emma – this adorable and intelligent girl has a lot to look forward to in life. She will change everything, I can see it. She is too smart for her own good. Her sass is what makes her, her.
