Eron De Marchelle isn't supposed to feel a connection. He is a Sandman, a supernatural being whose purpose is to seduce human charges to sleep. While he can communicate with his charges in their dreams, he isn't encouraged to--after all, getting too involved in one human's life would prevent him helping his other charges get their needed rest.

But he can't deny that he feels something for Julia. Julia, with her fiery red hair and her sad dreams. Just weeks ago, her boyfriend died in a car accident, and Eron can tell that she feels more alone than ever. Eron was human once too, many years ago, and he remembers how it felt to lose the one he loved. Eron has always felt protective of Julia . . . but now, when she seems to need him more than ever, he can't seem to reach her . . .

Sandmen are forbidden from communicating with humans outside their dreams. But will Eron be willing to risk everything for a chance to be with the person he loves?
Review: This story was very interesting. I haven't really read anything about sandmen before, it was refreshing. And creepy. I loved the way that you had to decide who the bad-guy was, and how it changed throughout the book. Very interesting.

BUT, while the ending TRIED to wrap everything up in a nice little package, it left some very important things out. Nothing was resolved. There was a big climactic moment, and then the next chapter everything was better. I have no idea what happened to the villian(s). Kind of bothered me.
It's a short story. I recommend reading it, even if I don't necessarily recommend owning it.

  1. I totally agree. It was worth the read, but the ending felt rushed and inorganic.
