Wow! I really liked this short story! The story begins with Breena waking up with no idea of who she is, where she's from, or how she got there-she only knows that her first name is Breena. Lucky for her, moments after she walks up, Ciaran walks by and is willing to give her a place to stay and help her try to figure out her origins. And...That's all I'm telling, because I hate spoilers but it's really good!
For a short story this has a very well-developed plot, it doesn't feel rushed. I normally hate changing POVs, but in this story I loved it! There is an awesome paranormal element. The ending left me wanting more!! I would have loved Dream Catcher as a full-length novel, I was bummed to see it end.

If you are looking for a book that is quick (can be read in one sitting) and holds your attention, then this is a great choice. From the way the book begins, it was not at all what I was expecting. It was still good though. I also did not realize that this was part of a series. Typically, when books with a sequel end, they sort of leave the reader hanging. Whereas, I felt this book could stand alone and still work. I will be interested to see where the second book picks up and how it functions in relation to the first book. Overall, not bad. I would recommend this to my students.

Good, short read. I think it took me about a half hour to finish, so if you are looking for something that you can not only read in one sitting but also will keep your attention, then this is a great choice. Based on how the book started, I can honestly say that it was not at all what I expected. I also did not realize that this was part of a series until the ending. What I found interesting about this was that most series end with a cliff hanger where you feel like you have to read the next book right away. You're sort of left in suspense...This one didn't really do that. I felt like the book could stand alone on its own, so I will be interested to see where the next book goes.

I really liked this short novella. It's a love story with a paranormal twist. The plot was good .. once I started I didn't put it down until I finished. Despite being short, the characters were fairly well developed. Since it is a novella, the love between the two main characters developed rather quickly but it didn't seem forced. The author makes it seem very natural. There was not a lot of action, mostly focusing on the relationship between Breena and Ciaran. It ends abruptly which did seem a little off but if you don't mind a cliffhanger than this shouldn't bother you. Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I will read the next in the series.
