* I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
First off I have to say that the cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous. From the perfect font for the title to the graphics used, cover designer, Jeremy West, has created a work of art.
Unique is a word that I hear far too often. If so many books are “unique” then why do I always know exactly how the story will play out? I do not like to use that word unless it is actually true. Well, SING SWEET NIGHTINGALE deserves that label.
Hudson is an unlikely looking hero. A six foot five guy with white-blond hair and completely black eyes is not what most people envision a hero to look like. This is terrific. It is different and I enjoy different.
Mariella annoys me at first. She seems to be a simpering idiot, but as the story progresses the author deftly changes the reader’s view of her character.
There are some very dark and disturbing moments in this book such as the death of J.R., but all these moments are essential to the character building that takes place.
The fact that this is Erica Cameron’s first novel speaks volumes about her innate talent. Some people have a gift for creating worlds and translating those worlds onto the written page. Erica Cameron has that talent and then some.
In my humble opinion “The Dream Wars Saga” is destined to hit the bestseller list for Young Adult fiction.
This is a terrific read and should be added to everyone’s MUST READ list.
Orane makes for the perfect villain. He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, or better yet, he is Captain Hook dressed up as Peter Pan.
I rate this book as 5 out of 5 stars. Terrific world-building, compelling characters and a heightening sense of tension and anticipation make this book a truly ‘un-put-downable’ read.
