Reviewed by Talia Ricci



Dawn is known as a Nightmare.  The daughter of Morpheus and a human woman, Dawn has always been aware of just who and what she is.  A top-notch dream analyst, Dawn’s patients come to her with their sleeping problems and she in turn interprets their dreams.  Her latest patient, Noah Clarke, is having more and more trouble sleeping and when he comes to her with tales of his dreams trying to kill him, Dawn doesn’t want to invade his dreams but invade them she will if it means keeping the man she has come to love safe.  These two enigmatic lovbers have a fight on their hands because evil is stalking them and it will take a concentrated effort from both of them to keep the bad guys away.

Kathryn Smith has intrigued me with Before I Wake.  Not sure if I was going to like it, specifically since it is written in my most hated format, first person, I set out to begin reading with an open mind.  Hours later I closed Before I Wake and couldn’t believe how fast time had flown. I was held spellbound from beginning to end and found the suspense, sensuality, and emotions an invigorating mix.  I can’t wait for the next installment!
