We are the Dolophoni. Diligent. Vigilant. Fierce and inescapable. Servants of the Furies, we are the right hand of justice and no one stands before us.
The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and was banished into exile.
Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.
As a Dream-Hunter, Delphine has spent eternity protecting mankind from the predators who prey on our unconscious state. But now that her allies have been turned, she knows in order to survive, the Dream-Hunters need a new leader. Someone who can train them to fight their new enemies. Cratus is her only hope. But she is a bitter reminder of why he chose to lay down his arms.
Time is running out and if she can’t win him to her cause, mankind will be slaughtered and the world we know will soon cease to exist.
I just loved reading this book! It was just so good, and it connected to Upon a Midnight Clear, which was really nice, seeing who Delphine is! And yeah, we get to met more of the Greek Gods besides Artemis and Apollo, and yeah, they're pretty much all assholes!
Loved Delphine and Jericho's story, because it was just so good! And it took the series to some new places, like finding out the reason why the Dream-Hunter's aren't supposed to have emotions-because of a curse, saying that they'd take down Zeus. Yeah.
So even though they're supposed to have no emotions, they still do, and yeah, having that, and having them kick butt, and proving the prophecy could be wrong, it just proved that they were the better people, and it's better to live life without fear!
I really enjoyed getting to know these characters, so much, and we got to learn more about Jaden, which was awesome, because I think he's going to play a major role, he's been more behind the scenes so far, but I think he's getting more and more out of behind the curtain!
Such a great book, I enjoyed it so much, and I can't wait for more, this book had some big developments for the Dream-Hunter world!
