She could never forget the boy with the ice blue eyes . . .
She was only twelve when she saw the silver boy on the beach, but Jenny has never stopped dreaming about him. Now she is grown, a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business—a corporation that covertly crosses the boundaries of science into realms of the unknown . . . and the incredible.
And now he has found her again, her boy grown into a man: Perrin, powerful and masculine, and so much more than human, leaving Jenny weak with desire and aching for his touch.
But with their reunion comes danger. For Perrin and Jenny—and all living creatures—their only hope for preventing the unthinkable lies in a mysterious empire far beneath the sea . . . and in the power of their dreams.
Once again Marjorie M. Liu gives the reader a wonderful tale brimming over with love and magic. Her characters are always full of depth and the stories take you far away into a magical world full of mystical beings that we believe only exist in our imagination.
The latest book In the Dark of Dreams is no exception. The main characters are wonderful. Jenny is a smart and independent woman and Perrin has lived a hard life and become even stronger living for the woman in his dreams.
When Jenny and Perrin finally meet there is no denying the sparks that are there. The two must find a way to save not only themselves but also the world. I enjoyed watching their relationship blossom as both Jenny and Perrin begin to open up to each other. While both have feelings for each other each is afraid to show them but the bond begins to form anyways as they are only fighting the inevitable. The love that they have is strong and both rely on it strongly during their trials showing us that such a love is worth fighting for.
Fans of this series will not be disappointed. This is a well-written and fast paced book that takes the reader on a magical ride that continues even after you have finished the book. Filled with action and romance, this is a book that should not be missed. I know I am already eagerly awaiting the next installment in this wonderful series.
