Wonderfully Wicked (The Dreamcaster Series #1) by C.J. Burright




Goodreads review




DREAMS CAN BE DEADLY

Kidnapped by the man of her dreams, she must embrace the darkness within to save her life … and her heart.

She’s an ordinary girl with a nightmare problem

For as long as she can remember, Kalila Montgomery has been tormented by creatures from her nightmares. Doomed to a solitary life with her cats, she’s determined to go down fighting. Until the man of her dreams— literally— kidnaps her and claims to know a cure. If only she could believe him.

He’s no ordinary hero

Lydon v’al Endrian will stop at nothing to be free of the V’alkara, a dangerous brotherhood who feed on dreams. But the key to his freedom, sassy dreamcaster Kalila, might be his toughest challenge yet. No matter how much she protests, he intends to keep her safe from the V’alkara, even if it requires the ultimate sacrifice.

But a girl can dream … can't she?

Now on the run with a man she can’t quite trust or resist, Kalila must decide— fight for her dreams of a normal life … or embrace a power she doesn’t want, to save Lydon.



2.5 No rest for the wicked Stars. 

Kalila Montgomery has since she's been a child had nightmares. She has never been able to lead a normal life. Her only friend is Mel who also has her own special talents.  

Kalila has been having a reoccurring nightmare where she is murdered by a tall, blond, handsome and lethal man.

Lydon the black, the Angel of Ruin, the scourge is tasked with bringing Kalila back to White is master of the V’alkara they need her to feed off her dreams to survive. 

Lydon is reluctant to do it but has no choice. Because of Kalila he begins to have a conscience. He has a theory to save himself he must save Kalila. It's like the V’alkara are a collective. Resistance is futile. 

Every time I thought that the book was progressing Kalila would go back to being a stubborn mule and Lydon wouldn't answer any questions. Really quite tiring and that's putting it mildly to be honest. I lost interest at the 70% mark. 

The book is well written and I'm positive that it will be a hit for most people. Alas it just wasn't for me. I have the second one and I will read it.
