Blurb

When Lucessa Sarcona awakes from a recurring dream, she has no idea her life is about to be turned upside down. A stranger, familiar to her dreams, shows up in the flesh, and Lucessa knows she’s either crazy or experiencing something not of this world.

A war ensues between three demigod brothers.  One, trained to rule Erebos, is violently replaced. One forced to return to his homeland and lead the dream-gods of the Oneiroi. And one is charged with the impossible task of protecting Lucessa. How is she linked to the Oneiroi? Why do two brothers seek to keep her hidden and protected? And how does another plan to use her against the two demigods who love her?

Will Lucessa’s dream man have the courage to claim her as his own or will he bow to the command of another, forsaking the one he loves?

Only in Her Dreams is a modern spin on a Greek legend--the new direction of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, moving from angels, demons, vampires, and witches and toward the realm of demigods.



What can I say, but WOW!! The blurb is so mysterious that I had no clue as to which way the story was going to go! Only in Her Dreams is Christina McKnight’s Debut novel in the Urban Fantasy genre and in my opinion, she has written it perfectly. I was able to connect with all the characters and get completely lost in her writing.

Lucessa has lead a tough life, she lost her Father in a car accident, her mother has dementia and her husband has left to go to Uganda to intern as a doctor. She only has her work and her dog. But things are about to change - big time!

In the blurb there is no mention of the Demi-God brothers’ names. Guy is the protector of Oneiroi, Maxim is Lucessa’s protector (who she is unaware of) and Darius has been banished to earth. As they are all Demi-God’s they are drop-dead gorgeous! I mean check out the cover, dark hair, blue eyes perfectly sculpted! I want one!

Maxim is by far my favourite, not only does he have the perfect package but he is also caring, smart and thoughtful. He always puts Lucessa first and takes his Demi-God responsibilities seriously. Lucessa is very reserved as she has had so much to deal with already and takes a little while to trust Maxim. But one person (not mentioning names, because it will be a spoiler) she lets into her life too easily and he is a jerk!! I couldn’t believe that she would do it! (It was the only thing I didn’t like about the book.)

The storyline built slowly and the further I read the more intense it became. (I was so consumed I may have neglected the kids a little!!) We meet a lot of characters including some of the God’s from Greek Mythology. I loved the mix of humans, Demi-Gods and Gods (oh, and a Dog) in this novel, they all work together well. There’s a perfect balance with the good and bad guys with plenty of plotting against each other. Christine McKnight has created a fabulous new world for me to get addicted to, but now I have to wait a whole year for the next book!! Argh!!
