The gorgeous defender resides only in her dreams –– dreams born from humiliating fainting spells. Each blackout takes Ky deeper into a war-torn world; where deadly beasts are trained to hunt women; where royal soldiers betray

Definitely original, absolutely intriguing: Battling a dual reality, Kyanna is suffering from fainting spells where she lands into a fantasy world with kings, battles, deadly beasts, and a gorgeous soldier.

Chimera throws us into not one, but two story-lines which are both full of mystery and romance. In her reality, Kyanna is a simple girl in love with the baseball star and trying to figure out her future plans. Her relationship with Lincon is incredibly romantic. I adored him - he's sweet, tale

This is my first "e-book" experience. I received a "Nook" for Christmas and as soon as "Chimera" was available on the Barnes and Noble Nook site, I bought it. I was quite anxious to read it, as it is written by a close relative and I have been hearing a lot about his novel writing experience.

When I heard about this book the first thing I thought was I love the cover. Then I read the premise and loved the idea of the book. Interesting concept of living in a different world during dreams.

Ky seems like a normal teenage girl getting ready for senior prom with her boyfriend Lincon. This book felt like two separate books. When she's awake she goes through fun high school stuff, hangs out with friends, dates her boyfriend. Then she has fainting spells where she dreams she's in a completely

I think that for his first novel, especially one where he writes from the mind and heart of a teenage girl, B.D. Swan did an excellent job. As with the previous reviewer I thought the book had a slow start the first chapter or two, but I was glad that I kept reading. Infact once I got into the story I had a hard time putting the book down. It was the perfect weekend read.
B.D. Swan has created a truly captivating storyline and characters that you can't help but root for. I found myself wanting K

A good fantasy read. There were a few inconsistencies in the story that didn't quite make sense, but a good read nonetheless. I hope there is a sequel. This ending was left far too wide open for my taste.
