Dreaming turns dangerous...Thoughts on Night's Deep Hush: I've been sort of devouring the books in this series recently because WHOA! THEY MAKE ME GIDDY WITH DELIGHT. I just can't resist the waking dreams and walking nightmares and UTTER CRAZY that can be found in the dreamscapes.
Malcolm Rook and Jordan Lane are on the run from powerful forces that seek their deaths. But they are discovered by someone from Rook's dark past. Under no circumstances will Rook allow this criminal to learn how talented Jordan is in the world Darkside. Instead, Rook succumbs so that she has a chance to survive.
Rook has been abducted and Jordan assumes the worst. She's fallen for him and will do anything to get him back. Alone on the streets, she concocts a plan that will take her into the black market of dreams to find help. An unlikely ally comes to her aid, and together they search and fight...one for love, the other for vengeance.
Oh, and the relationshippy stuff isn't too shabby either. You know, if you're into that. WHICH I AM.
This time we get to revisit Rook and Jordan. Book one felt to me like it ended very abruptly as far as their relationship went and I was so so SO happy to get to delve into their little slice of heaven again. Not that they had time for much lovin' this time around. Rook disappears fairly early on and Jordan's on her own and on the run. Which is a shame because those two can certainly steam up the sheets.
For all they're apart for a good portion of this book their relationship still progresses nicely. Rook is in Jordan's thoughts as she searches for him. Keeping Jordan safe drives many of Rook's choices after he's taken. I just like those two together. I like them!
There's some very nice setup for book 5 and the mystery of who the Sandman is and why he's (or she's -- I don't want to assume anything.) so feared by those operating in the Darkside underworld is hinted at. Well, not really hinted. More like it's mentioned that there's a shadowy Godfather-esque figure. You know, in passing.
I kinda lost my train of thought in there. IT'S COOL, THOUGH. I'll just soldier on.
The deeper we get into this world, the more I'm enjoying it. It's dark and sexy and very, very dangerous. I'm ready for book 5.
