Delirium by Erin Kellison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, if you haven't read the earlier books in this series, you will be totally lost. As it is, it took me a little bit in the beginning to reorient myself in this wonderful world. This is definitely a pivotal book in the series.
We dive back into the world where dreaming has become a full time job and dreams can be bought and sold in the black market. All of the usual faces are in this one - Rook, Vince, Jordan, Sera, and Harlen. This is pretty much a story about Harlen and Sera, but there are a lot of larger stories at play also. Sera and Harlen are struggling to figure out their relationship and how to make it work with their crazy schedules. Harlen is the new face of what the protesters are calling the "dream police." Their real goal is to police the nightmares that are destroying dreamers (and some during their waking lives).
The sandman worshippers are still lurking and up to no good. Things escalate quickly following the assassination of a key person in the new dream police. Such large scale war has been waged on the dreaming world that I don't even know how it will look in the installments to come. While this was definitely a departure from the smuttier early installments, the action was non-stop and kept the pages turning.
