In the ethereal world of dreams, there are champions who fight to protect the dreamer and there are demons who prey on them...
Arik is such a predator. Condemned by the gods to live eternity without emotions, Arik can only feel when he's in the dreams of others. For thousands of years, he's drifted through the human unconscious, searching for sensation. Now he's finally found a dreamer whose vivid mind can fill his emptiness.
Dr. Megeara Kafieri watched her father ruin himself and his reputation as he searched to prove Atlantis was real. Her deathbed promise to him to salvage his reputation has now brought her to Greece where she intends to prove once and for all that the fabled island is right where her father said it was. But frustration and bad luck dog her every step. Especially the day they find a stranger floating in the sea. His is a face she's seen many times.... in her dreams.
What she doesn't know is that Arik holds more than the ancient secrets that can help her find the mythical isle of Atlantis. He has made a pact with the god Hades: In exchange for two weeks as a mortal man, he must return to Olympus with a human soul. Megeara's soul.
With a secret society out to ruin her expedition, and mysterious accidents that keep threatening her life, Megeara refuses to quit. She knows she's getting closer to Atlantis and as she does, she stumbles onto the truth of what Arik really is.
For Arik his quest is no longer simple. No human can know of a Dream-Hunter's existence. His dream of being mortal has quickly turned into his own nightmare and the only way to save himself will be to sacrifice the very thing he wanted to be human for. The only question is, will he?
Review : The Dream Hunter starts with Megeara, when she was growing up she didnt belive her father when he told her Atlantis was a real place. She thought he was mad when he made it his life work to find the place where atlantis once stud. she lost alot of her family to this corse , so when he father died she didnt want to take up where he left off till someone walks forward wit the prof she needed to make her go on and prove her father wasnt mad. On this trip she found she couldnt get a permit to dig where she wanted and thought it was a lost corse, she went to bed that night to find her trouble went away because she dreamt of a sex god, a handsome stranger who came to take her troubles away. but there is more to the stranger then what she knows. But in her dreams this stranger is what she needs, he is the support she needs in real life and doesnt get. the support she needs to carrie on with the search for Atlantis.
Arik is condemned by the gods to live forever without emotions. The only way he can feel is by going into other peoples dreams. But he finds that this isnt good enough till he meets Megeara she brings his whole world to life, makes him feel what he hasnt felt i a very long time. she fills the emptyness he has lived so long with.Arik then decides he wants even more. He makes a pact/deal with Hades the god of the underworld to become human for two weeks, but what he finds i that Hades wants a trade. Two weeks of being human for exchange of a human soul, and yes you have guest it, Hades wants Megeara, Arik thinks he can deal with this but over time finds him self falling for the woman that has changed his whole life, how will he get out of the deal he made with the lord of the underworld.
OMG I so loved this book, but I dont think iv ever found a book of Sherrilyns that iv neer liked, in this book we meet lots of characters that you will love. Solin Arik's brother is one, he works against Arik in this book but I found the humour he had was really funny and the way the two bounced off each othe really made me giggle.
My favourite quote out of this book is.
"What planet are you from"
Moronia" Solin said" every full moon they send all the morons to earth, concider this your first encounter"
It so made me giggle. I think any one wo hasnt read a Dark Hunter book needs to start now, you will so not regret reading these books, they are so my favourite series ever. So what are you waiting for, go and buy these books.
