Review: In the Dark of Dreams by Marjorie M. Liu

In the Dark of Dreams
Marjorie M. Liu

Paranormal Romance
Net Galley

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.






Enjoyable Paranormal Romance Read!

Mermen fascinate me and when I found out this was about mermen I had to read it. The story was great; the romance was sweet even though I wish the author would have had some erotica in there but the author’s writing made up for it with her easy to read descriptions of the surroundings and the action that made you feel as though you were right there among the characters.

Jenny (Human/Fae) and Perrin (Merman) met once when they were 12 years old for a few moments on the beach and within those few moments, a destiny was set in place that neither one of them were aware of. As the years passed on they each led separate lives. Jenny worked for her grandparents as a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business while Perrin lived on shore amongst the humans since his exile from his own mermen tribe. During this time they’ve only seen each other within their dreams not knowing if it was real or not.

But when disaster (earth quakes, flooding, etc…) threatens the humans and all living paranormal (immortal) beings upon the earth, Perrin risks going back into the sea to stop the motion of disaster and once again Jenny and Perrin’s paths run across each other as destiny leads them on an adventure of a life time when in the dark of their dreams come true as their love unravels and new bonds are made.

Even though this is the 10th book in the series, it was my first read and it stood alone without having to read the others first. Very easy to follow but made me want to read the ones prior to this one to find out more about the other paranormal creatures that exist in our world. Great ending, I will definitely be reading more from this author.
