FIVE DAYS OF HEATHER DAY FIVE!!! eeep!

Today is the final day of the FIVE DAYS OF HEATHER!
Wahooo!
Luckily for me, everyday is a Heather day :) Soooo if you want your Heather days, add her on FACEBOOK and TWITTER!
Lots of fun stuff hehe.
 
Anyways! Today is the review of DreamKiller: The Complete Saga!

They call her the DreamKiller.

Silent, stealthy, and above all, accurate, as long as she carries out exactly what her dreams predict. Marlena Gormand kills to protect. Herself. Her way of life. The children at Little Hearts Orphanage. Until she learns these are not the reasons she’s been asked to kill. Not at all.

Azura Mkesky is the headmistress of Little Hearts Orphanage and the only parent-figure Marlena remembers. Azura taught Marlena everything she knows, from her combat skills to her unswerving loyalty to their cause. And Azura has always been there for her. But Azura has a secret. One that she’s used and manipulated Marlena and everyone else in order to protect.

Lukas Hristov knows Azura’s heart is dark—from both personal experience and the visions provided by his Sight. For too long, he’s stood aside while Azura’s reach of power and deception expands. When he can take it no longer and emerges from the shadows, he comes face to face with Marlena. For him, she is where it began. And she is where it ends. He is determined to make this right, to make her believe the truth.

And as the story unravels, Marlena begins to question whose secrets her dreams really protect.
 
 
 
Each book in the DreamKiller saga is actually more like a novella than a regular novel. No probs there because it is a really quick, fascinating read.
Think X-Men meets XXX (and not porn you pervs, more like 'Triple X' Staring Vin Diesel :P).
 
The story line is really complex, but not in the 'WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT??!!??' kind of way, but more in the fascinating, 'I'm going to play lab rat and dissect this story piece by piece until all the beautiful little pieces are mine to command *insert mad scientist laugh*' way.
 
Okay, now I do have something negative to say about it though.  The storyline was obviously well thought out, the characters in themselves are fascinating and complex and the relationships between characters are great, but when you have all that much greatness slammed into novella sized bites, it's rather irritating because it has the uber possibility to be so much mooore.
 
I wanted more. More details, more back history, but mainly because I'm a book hog and didn't want it to end ;)
 
Now, as you can see my negative really isn't a 'negative', more like me being the whiny book brat that I am. Ta da!!! *throws a fit*
(now you know where my 4yr old gets her temper from ;) )
 
What I loooooved about this book: It's completely different than other science fiction-ey books that I have read.  Normally whenever you read a book that has people with powers, you're all like 'oooh how original *rolls eyes*, I've never heard that one before', then proceed to cuss out said book. BUT with DreamKiller there are powers that completely took me by surprise and had me with a 'huh, didn't see that coming' and a 'WHAT THE EF I TOTALLY WANT THAT POWER' moments. Yeah, no stupid flying 'superpower' here ladies and gentlemen. We're talking about bad a** Zena Warrior Princess of superpowers.
 
It's all fascinating, and that leads me again to the whole *throws fit* I want more and I want it now with more back stories and detaaaaiiiiilllllssss!
 
Sooooo, whatcha waiting for? Go get ya some!
