Things seem to be going well for Liv Silver: she's adjusting to her new home (and her new family) in London; she has a burgeoning romance with Henry Harper, one of the cutest boys in school; and the girl who's been turning her dreams into nightmares, Anabel, is now locked up. But serenity doesn't last for long.

It seems that Liv's troubles are far from over--in fact, suddenly they're piling up. School gossip blogger Secrecy knows all of Liv's most intimate secrets, Henry might be hiding something from her, and at night Liv senses a dark presence following her through the corridors of the dream world. Does someone have a score to settle with Liv?

Romance, adventure, and danger abound in Dream On, the second book in the Silver trilogy.


Dream On...

 When I first started the first book in this series, Dream a Little Dream, I honestly didn't think that I would even finish it. It was a little slow to get going, and I was a little worried. I shouldn't have been. It didn't take too long for me to finally get in a groove with the story, and when it ended I was already gunning for book two. After a long wait, Dream On arrived on my doorstep ARC style, and now I am in for another long wait for book 3. I have a feeling it will be worth it. 

 Dream On starts a few weeks after the events of Dream a Little Dream, with Liv recovered from her almost-murder in the cemetery and dating the boy of her dreams, Henry. Everything has been peaceful with Anabel gone and everyone starts letting their guard down. Henry and Liv are still meeting in the Dream Corridor, Grayson is staying away, Arthur is recovering from a broken jaw. Everything is as normal as it can be, with the exception of the Boger returning from vacation and finding out that her son has moved a woman and her two children and nanny into his home.Now there is drama on the home front, and drama is about to return to the dreams. But this time, Liv's little sister Mia is involved. Henry, Grayson and Liv join together again to try and figure out this newest mystery, sans Jasper, and as always with Kerstin Gier's stories, fun and laughter and mystery ensues!

 There is something about Kerstin Gier's stories that just.... work for me. She draws amazing characters, and builds wonderfully vibrant worlds. She brings mystery and drama and romance and friendship and family to life in a wonderful way. But I think the thing that draws me in so completely is the humor she brings to even the direst situations. I love that her characters are fun and spunky, but able to become serious when necessary. And I appreciate that she doesn't make everything hunky-dory all of the time. There is conflict between characters, which makes even the most far-fetched fantasy a little more true to life. In Dream On, Liv experiences conflict in her relationship turned something different with Henry, and in her new blended family. These little additions to the story make it all the better. 

 Since taking a chance and reading Ruby Red, Kerstin has become an author I look forward to. I loved the Ruby Red trilogy, and the Silver trilogy is shaping up to be another favorite. I can't wait for the final book in this series to come to the states! If she stays the same course, it is going to be a great conclusion! And now, I think I might just be in the mood for a reread of Ruby Red while I wait.
