The Dream-Hunter Paperback
Part of the Dark-Hunter World series
In the ethereal world of dreams there are champions who fight to protect the dreamer and there are demons who prey on them.
Arik is such a predator. Condemned by the gods to live for eternity without emotions, Arik can only feel when he's in the dreams of others.
Now, after thousands of years, he's finally found a dreamer whose vivid mind can fill his emptiness.
Dr Megeara Kafieri made a reluctant promise to her dying father that she would salvage his reputation by proving his life-long belief that Atlantis is real.
But frustration and bad luck dog her every step. Especially the day they find a stranger floating in the sea.
His is a face she has seen many times...in her dreams.

Review by Lauren2013
The Atlantis plot premise has potential and the additions to the overall Dark Hunter world building are interesting but the romance is borderline idiotic.
Arik and Geary's relationship is completely inexplicable. Geary goes from overtly skeptical and suspicious of Arik to jumping his bones in less than a chapter and Arik goes from unfeeling and self-centered jerk to infatuated and self-sacrificing hero in the time it takes to fall off Mount Olympus.
The pacing is also off - the first 2/3 are slow and tedious but the last 1/3 picks up and manages to save the book from being a complete dud - the resolution to Arik and Geary's dilemma is inventive and I can only lament the fact that their romance is not worthy of it.
The secondary characters are the real highlight of the book from the various Greek Gods (Kenyon shows real insight into their egotistical, capricious and selfish natures) to Geary's quirky/nerdy cousin and Arik snarky "brother", not to mention the enigmatic ZT and Kat who is even more mysterious than before.
Ultimately, the book is worth reading for the tie ins to the Dark Hunter series, which fill in some gaps and add new details.
