Publication date: January 19th 2016
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Steampunk
Glory St. Pierre never thought so many lies could hold so much truth, especially when her entire life has been one of those lies. Now that she knows who she really is, she must find a way to come to terms with it before the Djinn sorcerer Rasputin and his steel army descend down upon the human and Djinn realms, wielding magic so dark even her own Djinn lover, Irving, is wary of it.
Their only hope to save the realms are a couple of hunters and the Lords of the Djinn Order, four powerful Djinn who have remained elusive for centuries. Armed with her only granted wish, a fabulous airship, and the Djinn she loves by her side, Glory will embark on a quest to find the four lords and enlist their help. But there is a reason the lords have been in hiding, and once this tiny band of adventurers awakens them from their slumber, they will set off a chain of events that has been in the making since the beginning of time.
There is no turning back now.

Dream Of Me surprised me in a really good way! The character growth is phenomenal. The dialogue is more believable and less corny than in Wish For Me. Even though there is still some humour, this book is more serious.
A lot more detail is given about Shrinelyn and the Djinn. The plot is rife with schemes and intrigue and I found myself drawn into this world. It reads more like fantasy than a romance with fantastical elements this time around.
Even though there is still a romantic element, it no longer dominates or overshadows the main storyline. There is a lot of action and mystery, and revelations about Molly, her mon and her dad after the big reveal at the end of Wish For Me.
Molly is her usual rambunctious and feisty self, getting into trouble even when she means well all of which adds to the excitement of the story. The pacing in this is faster and the plot is more action-packed. There is literally never a dull moment. It kep me engaged and invested from start to finsh and now I’m dying to read some more adventures of Molly and the Djinn.
Overall, a riveting, action-packed, steampunk, magical, apocalyptical mash-up with romantic elements guaranteed to delight and seduce you into falling in live with the characters and their world!
Book 1 – Wish For Me – will be 99¢ the week of the tour!
