Book Review: Im my Dreams

In my Dreams

by Cameo Renae
Release date: 16th May 2011
Publisher: Createspace and Smashwords
Pages: 226 (epub)

Summary from Goodreads:

It was happening again. The dreams. The nightmares. It was something seventeen year-old Elizabeth "Lizzy" Hayes thought she'd outgrown; dreams that would come true; detailed premonitions of how people would die. This time she dreams about her boyfriend, Michael Young, and soon discovers that he's been found... dead.
Michael hasn't crossed over because he was murdered, and now his murderer is coming for Lizzy. His spirit won't rest until she is safe, and as a newbie spirit, the easiest way for him to make contact is through Lizzy's dreams. When she dreams, it's as if he hasn't died.

Lizzy must learn to pull on her inner strength to survive horrifying events. Meanwhile, in the spirit world, Michael learns everything he can about his supernatural gifts to help. But will it be enough to save her?

Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

All I can think right now about this book is: "What a marvelous heartbreaking and inspiring story". But I'm sure you all want to know more about the plot. First of all, don't think this book is about werewolves, is not. There is a wolf, but is not really really important for the story.
I don't particularly like sad stories but this book is a total keeper for me now. The story begins with Elizabeth running away from a dark silhouette that is approaching her in the middle of the woods. And it doesn't matter how much she tries to run, there's no escape. She then discovers a small cabin and decides to hide there... but this cabin is really weird, instead of one door it has four and the wind is always opening them and through the doors she can see this thing coming for her... Right then she knows everything is over, she is going to die.
The dark silhouette approaches her and it smells like roten and death. Raising her hands to protect herself she just waits for the final strike.
But it never comes. A voice screams to her and destroys the dark figure.
And she wakes up. It was all a dream, a horrible dream but a dream in the end. Right? Not quite...
Her live is about to fall into pieces. Since her dad ran away with another woman her mom dedicated herself to drink and forgot everything about her daughter. So Lizzy grew up taking care of her mother. But she wasn't alone, her best friend and now boyfriend Michael always stood by her side. It was because of him that her live had still colors in it. And they were about to celebrate their 4th anniversary.
But with a phone call from his parents everything goes down. Michael is now dead.
And she is the only one that can see him in her dreams. And Michael tells her that he didn't die in an accident, he was murdered and the killer was now coming for her.

With this book we can see how a single act can change lots of lives to better... or to worse. And we share beautiful and specials moments between Lizz and Michael. Their love is inspiring, is warming and precious. From the beginning you know that they won't have a happy ending, it's simply to late. But that won't stop you, the story is far more thrilling and you will want to know what is going to happen next.
This book, while it makes you cry it also makes you smile and laugh. I simply loved it.
