Mr. Sandman, send me a dream, ta da da da.....Seventeen year old Chastity Blake knows the Sandman is just a silly children's story parents tell their children to get them to sleep. At least she thought it was, until the day a mysterious, light golden sand appeared in her hands during a high school prank that went horribly wrong. A sand that has the power to send anyone it touches into a deep, sound sleep.
Fearing she had lost her mind, Chastity soon discovers the shocking truth of her heritage- she is a Dream Caster. Chastity was never supposed to be raised on the Domain, or what humans call Earth and she is forced to return to her true birth place, Revera – the world of Dreams.
However, in Revera there is no balance between good, the Light Casters, and darkness, the Shadow Casters, and Chastity is caught square in the middle. She soon learns that there is no place for anyone containing both the light and the darkness within them, and the shocking truth that if anyone in Revera ever discovered her shadow self, Chastity would be thrown into the Oblivion – the world of Nightmares.
Dreams are always more than they seem, and this time Chastity is going to discover just how different they can be.
This book centers around Chastity, who is the daughter of a light and dark caster relationship. Throughout the whole novel, she battles the belief that she is a dark caster and must hide it from everyone. The author hammers home that are not born good or bad, and their surrounding culture does not determine that status. You, as a person, make the conscious choice to become one or the other.
The world-building for this world is outstanding, and the characters are unique and exciting as the standard for most stories like this. Our main characters are put through many trials to determine where they belong and what position they hold in this new world. Chasity is torn between hiding what she thinks she is and what others expect her to be. In the first part of the novel, I liked that we got time with Chastity and her mom, and then she gets dropped into the new training and life she expected to embrace. A stunning start to what I think will be a very unique and entertaining series.
