Arikos is a Dream-Hunter, a Skoti. Once, he was a Oneroi but was tricked by a Skoti and ended up being turned. Now, he’s found Mageara (or Geary) who dreams in vivid color and sensation. Arikos is drawn to her dream, to her. He’s even willing to make a deal with Hades to experience two weeks with Mageara. Problem is what he must do in return.

The concept of the Dream-Hunter’s was introduced in an earlier book in the series, which we find out takes place chronologically after this book. The idea of meeting someone in your dreams is very appealing and Mageara even gets a chocolaty version of Arikos for her pleasure.

Problems arise when Mageara finds a half naked man floating in the water off of Greece, and it turns out to be her dream lover.

Arik, as he calls himself in human form, only wants to experience life and Mageara but her mistrust is keeping her from her. He will risk his human life to make her happy and it isn’t until the secret of the Dream-Hunter’s comes out that she is willing to share her desires with him.

The idea was intriguing and while some of the delivery was predicable, I did like the idea that this man, or Dream-Hunter, was willing to be human just to spend two weeks with a woman he can’t stay away from in her dreams. An interesting bit to the story is that Arikos was willing to kill Mageara and give her soul to Hades in exchange for his two weeks, but after getting to know her he can’t bring himself to do it. I did like that his intentions didn’t start out from anything really romantic though in the end, as always, he comes to realize how much he loves her.

The banter between the two characters is actually very fun and while I think the adventures could have been more interesting the relationship between Arik and Mageara is entertaining.
