In The Dark of Dreams by Marjorie M. Liu
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I picked this book up and couldn’t stop reading. Read it straight through, despite the lack of sleep. Ms. Liu is a master story teller and it is easy to be swept away into a world of her making. I loved that she didn’t make the ocean a “safe” place, even for the creatures that live in it and I totally loved the idea of a being older than time lulled into a peaceful sleep by the dreams of the Guardians. If any one has ever heard of the “theory” that a huge shift is going to happen to the Earth and what was land will be under water and what was once under water will be land – then this story puts that theory into a very real perspective of possibility. Of course, you’d have to believe in the possibility that there are those among us who are rare, different and chosen the shape the world we live in too but I’m okay with that.
