Lily Grubowski has a secret that she
hasn’t revealed even to her best friends. It is one that
happened to her years ago, though she still has some
“symptoms” of this event even today. Now she is concerned
for her friends as they seem to have gotten themselves into
some kind of trouble and are shutting her out. So she does

passageway and spies on them to see if she can help them
out. The only thing she hadn’t bargained on was Darius and
the rest of his Cartoutney friends. She is further shocked

proud of and is a gift, not something to be hidden away.
Not only that, but the gift is something that she can use to
help not only her friends but to save children, and maybe
even find her father after all these years.
Will Lily and Darius reach an
understanding about this mate thing? Can they save the

Afraid to Dream is the
much-awaited third book in The Chosen Series; at least I
know I have been waiting for it. I like that Ms. Xander has
branched out a bit on this book and is dealing with one of
the warriors of the sun as well as giving us a look into the
other realm. Afraid to Dream deals with many
emotions stemming from friendship, hate, despair, and worry,
along with super erotic and love scenes. I was pulled into
Afraid to Dream by the fact it was the third
in a series I have enjoyed, but the writing and the story is
what kept me interested until the end. I enjoyed
Afraid to Dream and think you will also.
