[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of The Sandman

Erin Kellison: stories have always been a central part of Erin's life. She attempted her first book in the 6th grade, a dark fantasy adventure, and still has those early hand-written chapters. She graduated summa cum laude with a degree in English Language and Literature, and went on for a masters in Cultural Anthropology, focusing on oral storytelling. When she had children, nothing scared her anymore, so her focus shifted to writing fiction. She lives in Arizona with her two beloved daughters and husband, and she will have a dog (breed undetermined) when her youngest turns five. 

You can keep up with Erin online at her Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

The Sandman

Buy from Amazon (others coming soon):

The world Darkside is in turmoil when Chimera Marshal Steve Coll, bloody and beaten, makes it back to Maze City and into Maisie’s arms. He bears a terrible message—The Sandman, the god of the world of dreams, is rising, and he’s bringing devastation to the waking world. Steve must embrace his dual nature to save those he’s sworn to protect. And yet, how can he fight a being who destroys everything in his path?

Even awake, no one is safe.

After the fall of the black market, Maisie Lane’s city is overrun with criminals who want her dreamscape for their own. She’s always envisioned Maze City populated, but not with people like these. Nevertheless, she must relinquish some of her control not only to save the man she loves, but to protect and defend her precious city. While friends and family face danger and betrayal, another enemy is lurking in the shadows.

As time runs out, Maisie and Steve must fight with everything they have, or lose it all, including each other. And even if they somehow prevail, nothing will ever be the same.

The Sandman is the seventh installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

The Sandman picks up (obviously) where Delirium left off, with the fall of the black market Darkside and our cast scattered to investigate and battle the dangers now running rampant not only in the dreamwaters, but in the waking world, as well.

Maisie and Steve play a key role in The Sandman, but most of our other favorites are also there and play important supporting roles.

It's almost impossible to write a review for this book without giving away spoilers, so I will simply tell you this: there's lots of danger, oodles of intrigue, plenty of gasp-worthy moments, pieces that will make you feel like you have a lead balloon in your stomach, a sexy (and despicable) new villain, alliances that will have you on the edge of your seat, and just enough witty dialogue to keep things a bit light here and there.

Erin digs deeper into *her* darkside as the series continues, and this reader couldn't be happier!!

READ THIS SERIES! It's unique, fresh, captivating, enthralling, and action-packed. I highly recommend this serial to all paranormal romance and urban fantasy lovers!
