Title: Dream Magic
Series: The Magic Series #2
By: Michelle Mankin
Publication Date: June 7, 2016
Genre: Paranormal Romance
The dreamscape is a place of magic and mystery and meaning. In that nocturnal realm, ideas, images, sensations and emotions drift on the currents of the unconscious mind.
Morpheus the Dream Falcon is most at home in that domain. By night, the one of a kind winged immortal soars on those winds, observing and sometimes even entering the slumbering thoughts of another. By day, he is a highly sought after mercenary feared by his immortal kin for both his unmatched ferocity and his wicked obsidian talons. None of his prey escapes him.
Cecilia Ramirez y Aguilera is the one he truly wants. But the striking oracle of the Court of the Light Immortals is closed to the handsome outlaw, even in her dreams. Broken by unimaginable losses, the seer is but a slave, subject to the whims of a master who is mad and without mercy.
Drawn together by fate, their impossible passion ignites. But will that be enough given the dangerous secrets each keeps from the other? Or will mistrust and the desire for revenge threaten to unravel the powerful magic that binds them?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a two in one story that melds together. We first learn about Thyme, a young woman with a seemingly perfect life. She works in the ice cream shop her grandmother owns and her boyfriend is studying at Tulane.
The second part of the story is about Billy Blade, he’s a rock star of the highest order and has taken a break. He’s spending it in New Orleans and has just been crowned King of the Bacchus Krewe for Mardi Gras. It’s turns out that the apartment he is renting, like so many others in NOLA is haunted. His ghost is no other than the beautiful and sweet Thyme, who we found out had passed 10 years earlier at the hands of a progeny.
This was an interesting story. Was a little hard to follow sometimes as it is told from multiple points of view. Good character development and good writing.

This is the second book in the Magic Series and you do need to read Strange Magic first.
I was not really into this book. It starts off talking about Cecilia and her sister Amelia. In the beginning, their parents are murdered and they are taken prisoner. They are transported eventually to Phoebus and his Kingdom of Light. Since both Cecilia and Amelia are Dark Immortals, they are the slaves of Phoebus. He has searched for a while for someone to take the place of his previous Oracle and Cecilia is the one. Early on Amelia dies from wounds inflicted by Phoebus and it makes Cecilia hate him even more.
One of the main problems I had with this book is the multiple points of view. Not only to we have the story of Cecilia, but partway through, you jump to Billy and Thyme from book 1. Then after a while, you jump back to Cecilia. Near the end, the characters all come together in Phoebus’ kingdom, but it’s choppy. In my opinion, there are just too many points of view and it is easy to get lost.
