This is the second installment of Kerry Schafer's 'The Between' series. This author brings us an urban fantasy that is different from the other ones out there. This book picks up where the first one left off. Ms. Schafer's characters and the world she has created for them make a great story. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Vivian Maylor is not only a Dreamshifter but also part dragon and part sorceress. She is the only one of her kind who is a mix of the three. She believes that she is the last of the Dreamshifters. It is Vivian's job to keep the balance between the Dreamworld and Wakeword in balance. All she wants is to live her life with Zee, the man she loves. Zee is a dragon hunter and has vowed to keep Vivian safe. A new evil has managed to capture Zee and lock Vivian out of the Dreamworld. She has to find a way back in to it if she wants to save Zee.
Weston Jennings is a Dreamshifter. This is something he never wanted to be and he has fought learning about his powers. After the death of his family, he goes into hiding. When an accident costs the life of an innocent child, Weston heads to his old home to end it all. There, he runs into Vivian. He tries to teach her what he knows about being a Dreamshifter. Together they must enter the Dreamworld, find and free Zee, and defeat the new evil that wants to not only take over Dreamworld but also Wakeworld.
Vivian Maylor is trying to hold it together. But her attempts to build a life with the man she loves seem doomed by the dragon inside her yearning to break free. Vivian is a dreamshifter, the last line of defense between reality and the dreamworld, and the only one of her kind.
Weston Jennings also believes he is the only one of his kind. He fears his powers as a dreamshifter, and resists learning to control them. After suffering a tragic loss, Weston heads deep into the woods of the Pacific Northwest to embrace a safe life of solitude. But when a terrible mistake leads to an innocent’s death, his guilt drives him to his former home, where he encounters what he never thought he would find: another shifter.
Now Vivian and Weston must work together to defeat a new threat to the dreamworld.
